Perhaps this trailer doesn’t reveal much more of the movie than what we already know: Elysium is for the rich, Earth is for the poor. Matt Damon is ripped. He also gets a kick-ass exo-skeleton to help him in his mission to get to Elysium to save his life after radiation exposure.

But damn, if I didn’t get chills watching Damon try to save humanity, Sharlto Copley as a crazy soldier, and Jodie Foster’s pursed lips as she attempts to thwart Damon. And that last line, uttered by William Fichtner — “You have no idea what you’re doing” — suggests there are implications we trailer watchers won’t even estimate until we see the film.

Watch the new trailer below:

And if that song at the end of the trailer resonated with you like it did with me, I’ll save you the trouble: It’s “Manifest Destiny” by Zola Jesus.
