Those who tuned into Sunday night's Grammy Awards were in for a special treat: Disney debuted a new 90-second 'Maleficent' trailer, featuring Lana Del Rey performing a haunting cover of the original animated classic's signature "Once Upon a Dream" tune. Coupled with some epic new footage, the end result was rather breathtaking and just the sort of thing to get us properly excited for the upcoming film, starring Angelina Jolie as the classic Disney villain.

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.'

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.

Although 'District 9' highlighted a world that most audiences had never seen – the sociocultural divide in South Africa, writ large as a genre parable -- Neill Blomkamp’s debut film offered them something that was possibly even more unique, and significant: It felt like the first science-fiction movie in a long time that was completely original.
Duncan Jones and Gareth Edwards’ projects, 'Moon' and 'Monsters,' respectively, came soon therafter, but the trio reminded the world – not to mention Hollywood’s money-counters – that it was possible to tell stories that didn’t come from an already-popular book series, toy line or canceled television show. And now, with 'Elysium,' Blomkamp faces the pressure of following through on that promise: working with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster on a big-budget adventure financed by Sony, the filmmaker must demonstrate that his first film was not a fluke, but the future of genre filmmaking.

It's been a while since Neill Blomkamp hit the big time with 2009's 'District 9,' the Best Picture-nominated low-budget found-footage sci-fi film that proved a huge hit when released. We've been waiting to see how Blomkamp worked within the Hollywood system, and we'll find out when 'Elysium' hits screens in 2013. But until then, here's a look at Sharlto Copley's character in the film.
