Sony has announced the Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD release of writer/director Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium for December 17. DVD Active has the art and extras.
“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 in 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 these polarized worlds.”
