Matt Damon Makes Jokes, Tries to Save the World in ‘Elysium’ Extended Trailer

Don’t mess with robot police officers. They can sense sarcasm, hurt you and offer you colorful (and probably dangerous pills).

This is the scene that sets the foundation for Elysium, the sci-fi thriller starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster.

TriStar Pictures’ new extended trailer — which runs for some three minutes — sheds more light on the storyline set in 2154. Secretary Delacourt (Foster) and the wealthy live on Elysium while Max (Damon) and the underprivileged remain on Earth, pretty much rotting away.

The new preview also includes more screen time for Diego Luna, who helps prepare Max for his journey to Elysium and what appears to be the ultimate battle with a character named Kruger (played by Sharlto Copley).

Elysium, directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9), opens stateside Aug. 9.
