Yahoo! has a really interesting behind-the-scenes video that takes us to the set of Elysium where new Matt Damon and director Neill Blomkamp discuss how WETA built the mechanical exoskeleton – known as the ‘H.U.L.C. Suit’ – for the film, in theaters August 9.
“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 Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium – but that doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life-threatening mission, one that could bring equality to these polarized worlds.”
Sharlto Copley, Jodie Foster, Matt Damon, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Alice Braga, Diego Luna all star.
