At three and a half minutes, this trailer for Elysium is too long to play in cinemas. You’ll make do with the biggest screen you’ve got at home and turn on the surround speakers.
And yes, this promo does spend a lot of time and effort telling you the film’s story but you should know that there’s hardly anything in here from the third act. Heck, there’s less than normal from the second act.
Elysium is released in the US on August 9th and in the UK on August 23rd. The poster at the head of this story comes from Yahoo, so thanks to them for that.
