Matt Damon is a smart-ass and a bad-ass in new 'Elysium' trailer -- VIDEO

Posted on

Matt Damon sci-fi movie Elysium doesn’t hit theaters until August, but until then you can feast your eyes on newly released footage from the film in the latest trailer.

While previous trailers and reports have given us a good idea of what the future of Elysium looks like, this newest preview provides some more details on what Damon’s character, Max, is after and what his life is like before he decides to break into Elysium, the space station for the rich orbiting above a poverty-stricken Earth.

There’s more footage of Max fighting villain Kruger (Sharlto Copley, teaming up again with his District 9 director, Neill Blomkamp), and there’s also Max serving up smart-ass, mocking responses to a robot. Looks like this guy has a little bit of snark.

Check out the trailer below:

Elysium opens in theaters on Aug. 9, 2013.
