Sony has released the first poster for Neill Blomkamp‘s Elysium.  The movie is set in 2159, and two classes of people are divided: the wealthy live on a man-made space station called Elysium, while the rest of the humans inhabit an overpopulated and ruined Earth.  Matt Damon plays a desperate man who must reach Elysium in order to find a cure that will save his life.  Earlier today, a group of movie journalists were brought to a special event for the film.  Steve was among those invited, and I’m sure he’ll have his full thoughts online soon, but he tweeted “Just saw the new trailer and 10 min from #ELYSIUM. All I can say is WOW. Footage was incredible.  Cannot wait to see this.”  It’s not a surprising reaction considering that very early footage was shown at last year’s Comic-Con, and it was a huge success.

Hit the jump to check out the new poster, and come back tomorrow for the first trailer.  The film also stars Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Wagner Moura, and William FichtnerElysium opens August 9th.
