Director Neill Blomkamp takes fans behind-the-scenes with our exclusive featurette from Elysium, which debuts on Blu-ray and DVD December 17. Matt Damon stars as Max, a blue-collar worker who is desperate to get up to the elite space colony dubbed Elysium, to get the life-saving treatment he needs. Standing in his way is Kruger (Sharlto Copley), a highly-trained agent who will do anything to prevent a security breach. This exclusive video features footage from Max and Kruger's big fight scene, along with director Neill Blomkamp breaking down both these characters' fighting styles.
In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest who live in an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium - but that doesn't stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life threatening mission, one that could bring equality these polarized worlds.
