Matt Damon is rocking the shaved head look and showing off his oversized gun (really, that thing is ridiculous) in the first image from Elysium, which The Playlist has scanned from the latest issue of EW. The movie is Neill Blomkamp’s long-awaited follow-up to District 9, and stars Damon alongside Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Sonia Braga, and Diego Luna.
Here’s the official synopsis: ‘In the year 2159 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 Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line 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 (Matt Damon) 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.’ The film’s currently due out March, 2013.
