It seems like Matt Damon has turned down almost as many roles as he's taken. Not really, but there are a lot of opportunities (and a couple disasters) that Damon has shied away from over the years.
Although 'The Bourne Legacy' didn't live up to the critical and financial precedent set by the first three films in Universal's 'Bourne' series, the studio appears to be moving forward with a fifth film in the series. Although it's still early in the process, early buzz suggests that film will once again center around Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross, with Matt Damon's titular amnesiac spy off doing whatever movie spies do when audiences aren't watching them.
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.
In a future where the privileged live on a luxurious space station while the rest suffer on a polluted, over-populated Earth, one man can save the lower class from suffering.
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.
We're only a few weeks away from the release of 'Elysium,' Neill Blomkamp's highly-anticipated follow-up to his debut film, 'District 9.' In that film, Blomkamp created some pretty amazing and original tech and weaponry, and it seems that he's done the same for 'Elysium,' as displayed in the above video.
There are few films that we're looking forward to more in the latter half of 2013 than Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium.' A new featurette and TV spot have arrived for the film, both of which emphasize the science-fiction concepts at the core of the story over the impressive action that has been showcased in previous trailers.
In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest live on an overpopulated, ruined planet.
