I thought you were just being snarky.

I truly don't have any reason to watch this movie now. They crammed the whole damn plot progression into that 2min+ ad.

That's one reason I love Mad Men trailers.

Next Week on Mad Men:
Roger:  Are you ready?
Peggy:  You can't do that!
Pete:  Things are finally looking up!
Megan:  I don't understand!
Don:  *drinks*

Oh these trailer creators always preying on the weakest in society, those who can't hit pause or navigate away.

that movie has a very PKD feel to it

Thanks trailer!  Now I don't need to see the movie.

Jodie Foster is perfect as a stone cold evil biatch.  I like her.

Oh my god I love Jodie Foster so much. If there was only some way I could let her know how I feel

We are them now. The divide is just not as great.

I learned that after seeing the trailer for What Lies Beneath. Christ, that was like a trailer for 6th Sense that starts with "and he's a ghost."
 
2013-06-14 01:29:28 AM  
How can I take Matt Damon seriously, now that I have seen his quivering buttocks in "Behind the Candelabra"?
 
2013-06-14 01:37:57 AM  
I loved District 9, but star power aside this looks really generic. :-/

But its original sci-fi, so ill still see it.

Popcorn Johnny: Thanks subby, you just saved me 10 bucks since that goddamn trailer gave away the whole farking movie!!


Doubtful. You knew that they wouldn't build sets and CGI for Elysium if the main guy wasn't going to get there. That's not the whole movie. He still has to do whatever to not die. And have awesome fight scenes.
 
2013-06-14 01:57:36 AM  
Someone should do one of those pirate-global warming charts correlating the increase in movie trailer spoilerage and the degree to which people freak out about spoilers when you try to talk about which characters die in a fantasy novel that came out 13 years ago.

Did we see MATT DAMON punching/shagging JODIE FOSTER?

No.

You'll need to pay to see that shiat!

Not quite as nauseatingly generic as that rock em sock em robots movie that the guy who made Pan's Labyrinth is releasing.  What a pile of shiat.  I almost want to believe he made it just to see how stupid Americans really are.

You realize Pacific Rim is going to make way more overseas than here? It's Japan's greatest non-Japanese made movie since the Magnificent Seven.

In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on Elysium, a massive high-tech utopian metropolis located in the skies above earth that is free of crime, war, poverty, hunger, and diseases, while everyone else lives on an overpopulated, ruined Earth below.

Sounds like a metaphor for how Hollywood views its place in America: the pinnacle of cultural enlightenment towering above a sea of dirty unwashed masses. Every once in a while they glance down and pity us, hence this movie. I don't need their pity.

And speaking of class warfare, isn't Matt Damon worth like tens of millions of dollars? Why do you need all that money, Matt? Why you gotta be a greedy 1%-er? Are you gonna claim you're morally superior because you gave away a few crumbs of your massive fortune? Why don't you give it all away and come live amongst us little people, you farking hypocrite?

Uh, how the hell could seeing that trailer make any difference? There's nothing terribly deep going there. Don't get me wrong, it looks pretty good and I'll definitely see it.

Or maybe he's an actor in a freaking movie and you are just a jackass? Maybe?
 
2013-06-14 02:39:35 AM  
Well, that was a bit more story revealed than before.  The first trailer was a bit wanting.
 
2013-06-14 02:44:46 AM  
I'll see this for three reasons.
It's coming from the man that brought us District 9 which is easily one of if not the best scifi films of the last 20 years(personal opinion)
The more original stories that are supported should in theory give movie studios more confidence in putting more of them out.
Sharlto Copley!!!  The more work this man gets the better.  His Murdock in The A-Team was phenomenal.  The fact he's playing a protagonist in this based on the trailer makes it all the better and it should give a nice idea what he has in store for the remake of Old Boy.
 
2013-06-14 02:47:23 AM  
Save yourself the $ unless Matt Damon gets your motor running. I saw a screening of it pre-CGI and it wasn't the lack of special effects that had me scratching my head.
 
2013-06-14 02:49:27 AM  
That's only the first 45 minutes of the movie. The next 30 minutes deal with the revelation of all technology are offshoot of Prawn tech, all of whom were executed in 2032. The last 20 minutes is the Prawn invasion and Matt Damon trying to Prawnize himself to become a hybrid so he can become an in-betweener to stop the Prawn-Human war. Ironically, the humans ravage the surface of Earth with multiple nuke launches, and in the end, the Human survivors and the peaceful faction of the Prawns live together in squalor on Elysium with their technology and manufacturing capability severely diminished .

Matt Damon's character is the protagonist.
I believe Sharlto is playing the antagonist.
The guy they send to stop MATT DAMON.

You wanna see it? All right.

Class warfare is about people in the top 1% who have all the money you'll never see in your life doing everything they can to make the government make their lives easier, even if that comes at the expense of people like you.

Class warfare is cutting food stamps and taxes on big business and the richest amongst us who have had the lowest tax bill in 50 years.

Class warfare is saying letting people die without health insurance because they can't afford it is ok.

Class warfare is saying that people like you and me who work three different jobs hoping to just make it to the next payday aren't worth anything because we don't have the capital to invest in stocks that you already have the inside scoop on because the lobbyists you hired to write the tax code/regulations/red tape are also talking with the former aides of congressmen & senators and have given them (and thus to you) all the inside info they have about the companies and competition you helped them write laws about.

Matt Damon vigorously defends the "common man" like you and me all the time in interviews and various causes he supports through donations and organization of events. He's one of our generation's most strident liberal voices and hasn't ever compromised his principles to make a buck.

Well, except for maybe Stuck on You.

Whatever Matt Damon is doing, Elysium is far from class warfare. Just another good summer movie with an interesting message about what might happen if we let things keep being shiatty and allow morons like you stay blind to the fact that when you say dumb shiat like that you're not fighting in the class war for guys like you and me, you're fighting for the 1%.

At first I was reminded of this:

Walter Jon Williams - Hardwired

which would actually turn into a movie pretty easily.

Good lord, the cover of that book is just pure 80s, inn't it?

He is morally superior to any republican because he is pushing for policies that would remove the unfair advantages the wealthy have.
