Elysium is the follow up to District 9 from writer/director Neill Blomkamp.

Combining a gritty, robot-supervised post-industrial Earth with the gleaming, idyllic space station Elysium, the film depicts classic sci fi visions together. Not to mention that Damon and District 9's Sharlto Copley get suited up in body augmenting bionics.
