Get Up On This: ‘Elysium’ Features Advanced Tech Weaponry

Check out the exciting new technology that will debut in the upcoming Niel Blomkamp film, “Elysium.” This featurette is all about the ‘hulk suit’, an exoskeleton armor that gives soldiers increased strength with this creative conceptual art, brought to reality by the Weta Workshop in New Zealand.

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 (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 (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.

Elysium stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, William Fichtner and Wagner Moura.

Elysium hits theaters on August 9, 2013.
