Elysium Blu-ray

Posted September 30, 2013 05:15 PM by Webmaster

Sony PicturesSony Pictures Home Entertainment will release a combo pack edition of director Neill Blomkamp sci-fi action drama Elysium (2013), starring Matt Damon (The Departed), Jodie Foster (Contact), Sharlto Copley (District 9), and Diego Luna (Y tu mamá también). The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the nation on December 17th.

Official synopsis: In the year 2159, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy "Coordinators," people who can afford bio-genetical engineering, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, built by the Armadyne Corporation, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes, a hard government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn't stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky ex-con Max is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

Exclusive Blu-ray Bonus Features:
  • Extended Scene
  • Visions of 2154 - An interactive exploration of the art and design of Elysium.
  • The Journey to Elysium:
    • Envisioning Elysium - This pre-production diary explores all facets of pre-production.
    • Capturing Elysium - With production in Vancouver, Mexico, and on huge green screen stages, the challenge of filming was nothing short of massive. The filmmakers and cast discuss the journey through the film's production.
    • Enhancing Elysium - This post-production diary explores the editing process.
  • In Support of Story: The Visual Effects of Elysium - An in-depth look at the process of shooting visual effects scenes and incorporating CGI environments and vehicles into those scenes in post-production.
  • The Technology of 2154 - From independently functioning Droids to next-generation military tech that gives humans machine-enhanced power, get insight from the filmmakers on the technology of Eysium.
Additional Bonus Features:
  • Collaboration: Crafting the Performances in Elysium - Meet the dynamic cast and get insight into how they prepared for their roles.
  • Engineering Utopia: Creating a Society in the Sky - A look at designing and creating the utopian space station.

Enjoyed this. Damon/Copley/Foster (although her performance was more heavy-handed). It wasn't up to the standard of "Disctrict 9." I'll still be adding this one to my collection.

I thought it was merely OK. Matt Damon was reliable, as usual. Didn't like Jodie Foster's character or her weird accent. Copley's character was way, way too over the top!

I really enjoyed seeing this in the theater. A more polished film than District 9, IMO. Matt Damon and Jodie Foster gave great performances, but it was Sharlto Copley who stole the whole movie as the main villain, Kruger!! He was that good!! Day one for me.

A horrible, horrible, horrible "movie":

* One-dimensional characters (Jodie Foster turned down Hannibal but agreed to THIS?!)
* Rampant shaky-cam
* More political soapbox than entertainment

I want my money back.

Good special effects that were not all cgi, great performance by Damon, ridiculous unwatchable shaky-cam.

Was kind of hoping (expecting, really) that this would get a nice Kick-A$$ "7.1" Dts-HD MA track, being it was kind of a big sci-fi/action flick (in IMAX, to boot).

Awful movie--shallow, predictable and with the production value of a third world YouTuber. I would only recommend for those who think comic books are literature.

I really liked this movie. Maybe it is lesser than district 9, but so what? Doesn't diminish my appreciation of Blomkamp's sophomore effort Also I really really really badly want him to make Chappie in 3d

"Elysium" was no District 9, but then again, it doesn't have to be. Neill Blomkamp is still a superb storyteller, and a personal favorite of mine. He's got a master's sense of pacing, allowing people to get fully immersed in the worlds he creates, rather than subjecting them to mayhem porn. His sets are more functional than aesthetic, and his characters are often juicy. I do wish the film was a bit longer so the story could breathe a little more, but it's still a decent effort that confirms the emerging talents of Neill Blomkamp. TriStar is back, bitches!

Good entertainment for the most part but not as enjoyable as District 9 which I proudly own. I will not be buying Elysium myself. Copley as the villain was the highlight.

Matt Damon takes a role in yet another politically charged film that feels rushed, has weak character development, and incomprehensible action sequences. Needless to say, I hated it.

Really disliked this movie, and that's coming from a huge fan of District 9. That being said, I'm sure this will make a gorgeous blu-ray.

District 9 still >>>> than this movie.

Didn't like Jodie's character
Copley was way over the top and that accent?? That's how he sounds menacing or authoritative?
Plot was ok.

CGI was amazing (that was expected)

Very District 9ish with similar CGI look, weaponry, back drop, slums setting. A 7/10 in my books

District 9 is a 10/10

@William H Pratt: The imprint of the "Occupy vs. 1%" movement is apparent. And the moralizing at the end is naive and has the nuance of a Kirk Cameron movie.

I'll be honest.... I fell asleep while watching this one. WHAT I DID SEE...was interesting...but not really fresh or unique. I like Damon and Foster, but I thought that they were a little hackney.

As others have said, the visual effects were amazing.

Some movie agendas are too blatant, and this is one of them. I don't mind politics, and I never let an actor's personal affiliation stop me from seeing a cool flick. But the level of white guilt coupled with shaming the have -vs- the have not in this film, was more than I could stomach. Total stinker imo.

@eiknarf: Freaking Matt Damon man, he was really good in his earlier career. It's too bad, this movie has some amazing visuals. A bit off topic here, but actors need to understand the audience isn't paying them to remind us how f-uped the real world is, we're paying them to take us away from it.

I will get this and most of my Blu Rays during the black Friday and cyber Monday sales. I am usually too cheap to buy many movies at other times of the year.
