Sony Pictures has released some new high-resolution images from two of the studio’s most highly anticipated 2013 releases.  First up, a new image from director Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi pic Elysium teases an intense showdown between Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley.  I saw a bit of this sequence at Comic-Con last year and it is absolutely brutal; you will be shocked at just how badass Copley is with this character.  The film opens on August 9th.

Additionally, Sony has released a handful of images from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s directorial debut This Is the End.  We see Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel, and Craig Robinson handling an apocalyptic event in a variety of ways, but the images also give us new looks at the film’s other supporting characters (ie. more actors playing themselves) including Emma Watson, Michael Cera, Rihanna, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.  The film opens on June 12th.  Hit the jump to check out images from Elysium and This Is the End.

Here’s the synopsis for Elysium:

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. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet’s crime and poverty, and they critically need the state-of-the-art medical care available on Elysium – but some in Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens’ luxurious lifestyle. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

Here’s the synopsis for This Is the End:

The comedy This Is The End follows six friends trapped in a house after a series of strange and catastrophic events devastate Los Angeles. As the world unravels outside, dwindling supplies and cabin fever threaten to tear apart the friendships inside.  Eventually, they are forced to leave the house, facing their fate and the true meaning of friendship and redemption.
