Comic-Con 2012: "Elysium" Spaceship Crash Lands In Comic-Con!!

Comic-Con is gearing up into Warp-Speed in San Diego, with all film studios going into high gear and pulling out all of the stops to shock n awe the thousands of fans/geeks/nerds/humans who gather here from around the world. Thus, a sight of a spaceship from "Elysium" the next blockbuster hit from Neill Blomkamp has been witnessed.
Already a fleet of Batmobiles were seen gathered in front of one hotel next to the convention center. and now over at the Hard Rock Hotel, also hotel near the convention center, a mysterious spaceship seems to have crash landed,a spaceship with ties to Matt Damon,District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, and their new movie "Elysium". The spaceship also is made by luxury car manufacturer Bugatti.

Elysium will be part of the big panel for upcoming Sony Pictures films on Friday, and Blomkamp will be on hand along with cast members Damon, Jodie Foster andDistrict 9 star Sharlto Copley.

In the year 2159 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard the 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 Max (Matt Damon) 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.

Elysium is scheduled to be released on March 1, 2013. When the film was first announced, Sony Pictures intended to release it in late 2012. It later set an official release date for March 8, 2012
