Check Out the Viral Campaign for Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Elysium’


Comic-Con offically launched earlier today, and one of the most interesting film-related tidbits to come out of it so far is the viral ad campaign for Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium — which, it’s worth pointing out, doesn’t open until 2013. According to Slashfilm, producers have put up posters pointing to, a website which contains a short recruitment video for “zero g welders, mega-structure engineers, quantum networkers and experts in zero g coupling and multi-generational planning” for “the most ambitious project ever undertaken by mankind.” Not exactly a big reveal, but considering how little we already know about the film (it’s set 150 years in the future on another planet; it stars Jodie Foster, Matt Damon, and William Fichtner; and Blade Runner designer Syd Mead is involved), it’s something, right? Click through to check out the clip, and let us know in the comments if you’re excited to check out Blomkamp’s followup to District 9.
