Thus far, all of this information could easily fit into a Neill Blomkamp movie — perhaps, even, his wildly hyped, upcoming-but-totally-nascent Alien film (while it was just recently announced, Blomkamp seems to already have enough of an idea of what he wants to know that he wants to forget Alien 3). With excitement consistently growing about both this and the March 6 release of Chappie , fans may find themselves wanting to revisit Blomkamp’s previous works — which wouldn’t be too daunting a task, as he’s only made two features. It turns out Blomkamp also expresses interest in revisiting the less successful of these films, Elysium, but for different reasons. In an interview with UPROXX, the director said:
I feel like I f*cked it up… I feel like, ultimately, the story is not the right story. I still think the satirical idea of a ring, filled with rich people, hovering above the impoverished Earth, is an awesome idea. I love it so much, I almost want to go back and do it correctly. But I just think the script wasn’t… I just didn’t make a good enough film is ultimately what it is.
And if none of this has managed to surprise you, here’s a piece on Patti Stranger as a feminist icon.
