The very first Elysium trailer is here! And finally gives us an idea of what the heck Matt Damon's giant exoskeleton is for.
Take a look:
The film takes place in a dystopian future where an overpopulated and desecrated Earth has been abandoned by the wealthy in favor of an idyllic floating city called Elysium.
Damon plays Max Coburn, a man on Earth who desperately needs to get to Elysium to cure a fatal illness.
Now, as for that exoskeleton: apparently, it is used to "override" the system at Elysium and allow Coburn access. Seems like a key card could have done that trick, but...
Damon is joined by Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, Alice Braga, and Diego Luna.
Elysium will hit theaters August 9.
