Elysium ~ Two New Featurettes | Special Ops - The Tech of Elysium


In the "Special Ops" trailer below, actor Matt Damon discusses two different droids that are featured in "Elysium." First, is the Security Droid, which special effects house WETA built. The droid acts somewhat human at first, and then more spider like when crawling over a car to get to  Damon's character, Max. 

Matt Damon then goes on the describe the Civil Servant Droid as being with D.M.V. (Department of Motor Vehicles) worker on steroids; the experience is a bureaucratic nightmare 



In the "The Tech of Elysium" trailer, Max (Damon) wears a 3rd generation "exo-suit" witch director Neill Blomkamp explains is just an " extrapolation on current day technology that the military is looking into." The WETA special effects company designed the suit to weigh only 25 lbs and is distributed over Damon's body, making it comfortable for the actor to wear all day.


Matt Damon,. Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley star in "District 9" director Neill Blomkamp's
new Science-Fiction film "Elysium."
"In the year 2154 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Delacourt,  a government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn't stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds."
