Re: Live blog

At the "Elysium" press conference,Matt has introduced himself "Team America" style. I Like the way he laughs at himself ƪ('◡')ʃ

And he's done another interview on the red carpet with Matt Zoller (who put himself into Matt's family photos during the Informant press conference).

Re: Live blog

...LOL :)

What I've got so far, is that Matt's character is dying and trying to get a space station for meds, Copley's the bad guy & Jodie is a political figure, somewhat Machiavellian. Sounds promising. According to IMDB is a 100 million dolar movie.

Re: Live blog

I loved the comment from Neill Blomkamp that it's not a $200 million movie (but it is probably a $120 million movie). Jodie said it was an 80 day shoot.

Elysium panel up shortly and they will show seven minutes of footage.

Re: Live blog

Neill's a big fan of Comic-Con and really wanted to debut some footage there.. The visual FX are not done yet...

Re: Live blog

Thanks for letting us know about the live blog. Would have loved to have been there and heard Matt's funny stories about the "crap dust" in Mexico City. I guess they'll have some nice interviews up by tomorrow :)

Re: Live blog

Here's some detailed reports on the footage shown:



Reactions to the footage are very positive. A trailer still won't be available for possibly months (this was just rough unfinished footage). A few comments:

#Elysium looks unbelievably badass and huge in scope. Footage lived up to the expectations set by District 9. Full report soon! #SDCC

Adam J. Ely‏@adamjely
Just witnessed 7 minutes of #Elysium. The planet is not prepared for how uncompromising honest, scary, fantastic, and badass it is. #SDCC

Pietro Filipponi‏@Poni_Boy
Elysium is loaded with action and sci-fi/intergallactic beauty but centers on a dark story about class diversity. Also, Cyborg Matt Damon!

Ryland Aldrich‏@RylandAldrich
7 min sizzle for ELYSIUM with some temp FX shows us a whole lot of the story. Get your cyborg Matt Damon costumes ready for #SDCC 2013.
