With the $30 million opening weekend for 'Elysium,' it looks like audiences are still very much on board the Neill Blomkamp train. It's surely no coincidence that Sony waited until this moment to announce that they've signed on to the director's next film, a science fiction story called 'Chappie.'

POLL: Why Didn’t More People Head to ‘Elysium’?

elysium-matt-damon-image

This summer has been filled with question marks. We've seen a surprising number of films underperform, even when they looked for all the world like winners on paper. The latest is 'Elysium,' an ambitious, original sci-fi action film, starring bankable actor Matt Damon and directed by 'District 9' maestro Neill Blomkamp. It just debuted to a so-so $30 million, surprising since it appeared that it would provide the boost the summer box office has needed lately. So this begs the question: Why didn't 'Elysium' fare better?

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Elysium’ Wins a Busy Weekend

Sony

In a weekend with four new major releases but no definitive frontrunners, the Matt Damon sci-fi action flick 'Elysium' snagged the top spot over some seemingly powerful competition. Director Neill Blomkamp's film continues this summer's trend of R-rated fare opening big ('The Purge,' 'The Conjuring,' '2 Guns') and proves that there's plenty of box office success to be had in the typically slow final weeks of the season.

See the Cast of ‘Elysium’ Then and Now

Elysium
Sony

Neill Blomkamp's latest sci-fi action effort, 'Elysium,' hits theaters this weekend. In the film, Matt Damon plays Max, a man living on a future, third-world version of Earth while the wealthy enjoy a utopian life on a luxury space station known as Elysium. When given only a few days to live, Max must become a reluctant hero to save himself -- and possibly the rest of humanity.

Damon leads a cast that includes Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, and William Fichtner, so we thought we'd take a trip down memory lane to see the cast of 'Elysium' way back when.

New Elysium images

Here's the thing: in the future, the last thing you want to do is agitate Jodie Foster's secretary of defense Delacourt until she's forced to activate Kruger. What's a Kruger? In this new clip from Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium,' Kruger is a black-ops-style private contractor played by Sharlto Copley, who also starred in Blomkamp's 'District 9,' and he has missiles. And he will use them indiscriminately.

‘Elysium’ Review

Elysium review
Sony Pictures

Here's one of my favorite jokes of all time. There's no punchline, it's just a sentence. "I've been rich and miserable, and I've been poor and miserable. And I'll tell ya: rich is better."

I don't know if this is what director Neill Blomkamp had in mind as the ultimate message of 'Elysium,' his visually stunning follow-up to 'District 9,' but beneath the dazzling spectacle, there isn't much else beyond that aphorism to cling to.

‘Elysium’ Clip: Matt Damon Experiences Some … Technical Difficulties

Elysium

One of the many great things about director Neill Blomkamp's tremendous 'District 9' is how it deftly blends insane sci-fi action with comedy and social satire. Much of the marketing for his sophomore effort, 'Elysium,' has focused on all of the cool action, but the first clip from the film showcases its sense of humor, promising that there will be plenty of laughs in between the gunfights.
