District 9 writer/director Neill Blomkamp recently announced his Aliens sequel project was on hold while Ridley Scott makes his Prometheus sequel, Alien: Paradise Lost. In his announcement, he mentioned moving on to other projects and it seems he may have found one. Deadline reports 20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to an upcoming science fiction, The […]
There's one shot of Kruger in particular that leapt out at me when I first saw the film, so when I sat down with Copley for a chat, I asked him about it.
Neill Blomkamp's sophomore effort should be one of the highlights in my movie going summer, and as of today, it looks like I have another, rather large viewing option.
Dev Patel as an impoverished young man and Sharlto Copley as a robot police officer. Presumably with hilarious consequences but also a dash of social criticism.
Here's a trailer for Elysium that shows how the film is being sold in Japan. It's not quite the same approach is in the West.
This trailer seems more District 9-y then the earlier trailers.
Plus a new poster for the film to promote its IMAX release.
I think a lot of people would like to see District 9's Neill Blomkamp direct a Star Wars movie, and that number will likely bloom after his second feature, Elysium, is released in August.
Meet Spider and Frey, and get a hint of how Max is going to reach Elysium.
Last year's Comic Con presentation for Neill Blomkamp's Elysium was the most impressive thing I saw in all of San Diego. It looks like a real leap on from District 9, and I hope it is.
Bleeding Cool Magazine article by Brendon Connelly Though 2001 was supposed to see us take a Space Odyssey and 2010 was touted as The Year We Make Contact, it seems Arthur C. Clarke got that all wrong. Mayan calendar wrong. I'm still here, feet flat on the ground, not a single alien life form amongst […]
The slow drip feed of Elysium news has just let free another drop.
I've got a very good feeling about this.
It's better than nothing but wouldn't you like a trailer of some kind?
At the heart of Neill Blomkamp's second feature film, Elysium, is a bold, political diagram. The film's conceit is that Earth has become greatly polluted and impoverished and the richest few have moved off world to Elysium where they live in great luxury. In the footage shown to us in Hall H at Comic Con […]
The wraps have come off. Last night, we were the first to point out the Bugatti spaceship from Elysium. Today, we've got your first look at the creepy looking border agent from the film's Comic-Con booth. He's part Johnny Cab, part Doctor Who's Smiler and hits that same button in me as a Laughing Policeman. […]
Bleeding Cool have arrived in San Diego for Comic Con and got to snooping, and we've been sticking our noses where others have yet to tread.
Neill Blomkamp's second feature, Elysium, is a science fiction film with some social ideas on its mind. It would seem that he's found his metier. Very little is known about the film's plot so far, though we did have a little blurb recently, and there's almost certainly going to be some footage unveiled at Comic […]
There was a preview screening of Elysium held last night, somewhere in the US. As well as recruiting audience members in cinemas and malls, as has been the case for many a year, the market researchers also issued tickets online. Alongside info on where and when the film would be screening, the online invite included […]
