As everybody knows by now, this has been a rough summer at the box office, with movie after movie going in the toilet. Elysium, which is Neill Blomkamp’s big studio follow up to District 9, has been looked at as a possible hope to bring the box office back from the brink. Now the official reviews are in, and what’s the verdict?
A lot of movies have come and bombed this summer, and it doesn’t look like the hemorrhaging’s going to stop any time soon. At the same time, one movie that looks very promising is Elysium, director Neil Blomkamp’s follow up to his acclaimed District 9.
Elysium isn’t a remake of a tired old movie, or an adaptation of a video game, which could definitely confuse a lot of people, but we at TG are looking forward to the film because it’s the follow up of director Neill Blomkamp, the man who gave us District 9.
We still don’t have a public trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s new sci-fi thriller Elysium, but lucky Comic-Con attendees were treated to seven minutes of unfinished footage.
