Movie preview: “Elysium”

Rated: R for strong bloody violence and language throughout

Running time: 1 hr 49 min

Cast: Matt Damon, Alice Braga, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Faran Tahir, William Fichtner

Plot: The year is 2154, and the division between social classes has grown wider than ever before. As the rich enjoy a life of luxury and access to cutting-edge medical technology on Elysium, the rest of the human race contend with poverty, crime, and disease on the surface of our planet. Meanwhile, hard-line immigration laws ensure that only those who have been explicitly approved will ever set foot on the elusive paradise in the stars. When unlucky Earth-bound citizen Max is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that, if successful, will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
