Matt Damon

mattdamoninterview

Just prior to stepping inside Hall H to present, alongside director Neil Blomkamp and co-stars Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley, footage from the highly anticipated “Elysium”, Matt Damon did the press thing and spoke about what was so appealing about doing this latest movie of his, and why he thinks audiences will get damp over it.

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. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) 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.
