Elysium

Neil Bloukamp, director and creator of the International blockbuster movie made in South Africa “District 9”, has a new movie called Elysium coming out in 2013. The movie was written and directed by Neil and will star the likes of Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and South African Sharlto Copley. It seems Neil has a thing for Science fiction as this movie is based in the future where the rich live in Elysium, a pristine space-station, and the poor on an overpopulated, ruined earth. In essence this movie is a socio-political anology of the situation in Africa and other 3rd world countries were there’s a big gap between the rich and the poor.
