Elysium ONLY AT CINEMAS
THE MOVIE
  • Story

    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 on an overpopulated, ruined planet. The
    people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty
    that is now rampant throughout the land. 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.

  • Characters
    Matt Damon
    Max Da Costa (Matt Damon)

    Max Da Costa hasn't always played by the rules. As a result, he's spent a good chunk of his 36 years locked up. Nobody, including himself, expected much of the orphan who grew up on the streets in the sprawling shantytowns of 22nd-century Los Angeles. But now Max is committed to playing it straight in spite of his endlessly routine existence as an assembly line worker at an Armadyne plant. That is until one day something goes awry, and consequences out of Max's control once again test his resolve to stay on the right side of the law.

    Jodie Foster
    Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster)

    As Secretary of Defense, Delacourt directs Elysium's security apparatus. She monitors Elysium's borders and commands the Civil Cooperation Bureau, the organization that keeps Earth in line and its citizens where they belong. While her hawkish assessment of the illegal immigration threat is not shared by all of Elysium's leaders, with a stream of filthy, graffiti-laden shuttles headed their way, she will do whatever necessary to keep Elysium safe.

    Sharlto Copley
    Kruger (Sharlto Copley)

    M Kruger—or Agent 32 Alpha 21b, as he's designated by the Civil Cooperation Bureau—is a crucial weapon in Secretary Delacourt's arsenal to keep Elysium free of illegals. Countless human rights violations to his name, he is one of the CCB's most capable Earth-based sleeper agents. Kruger's knack for killing is all Delacourt considers when it comes to protecting Elysium.

    Alice Braga
    Frey (Alice Braga)

    The County Hospital is dirty, decrepit and crowded far beyond capacity. Nursing is what Frey always wanted to do, but working here is dispiriting and exhausting. It's also a necessity as it provides access to things she can't live without. When Max shows up in her ER, she knows she shouldn't trust him. They were so close growing up, pilfering food, dodging police bots - surviving together. But that was years ago and things are drastically different.

    Diego Luna
    Julio (Diego Luna)

    Max and Julio were brothers from the time they stole their first car together. Max was a legend on the dirty streets of LA where they grew up. These days Julio runs solo. He can't believe Max would go straight—especially to punch the clock at a place like Armadyne. When Max agrees to pull off one last job in a desperate attempt to change his life, Julio steps up to help his old friend.

    Wagner Moura
    Spider (Wagner Moura)

    Something between an opportunistic entrepreneur and a modern day Robin Hood, Spider sells what people want: passage to Elysium. He doesn't shuttle illegals to Elysium for charity, but he's their ticket to salvation all the same. He experiences a crisis on conscience when Max uncovers something that can equal the playing field between the "Have Nots" of Earth and the "Haves" of Elysium.

    William Fichtner
    John Carlyle (William Fichtner)

    As CEO of Armadyne, John Carlyle is the rare Elysium citizen who's obligated to spend time on Earth. With branch offices and facilities in London, Paris, Madrid, Rome, Moscow, Sydney, Tokyo, Seoul, and Mexico City, Armadyne is not only one of the planet's biggest and most valuable Elysium contractors, but also the company responsible for building it. So Carlyle sits behind bulletproof glass in its Los Angeles headquarters, running the company, while below him thousands of workers toil away at building the security bots that keep them from ever reaching Elysium.

    Faran Tahir
    Minister Patel (Faran Tahir)

    Recently elected to lead the orbital habitat's 8,000 super-high-net-worth citizens, Patel understands how critical public opinion can be and prefers a more humane approach to keeping Elysium free of illegals. That puts him at odds with Defense Secretary Delacourt who has no issue with the ruling class getting a little blood on their hands.
