In the newly released clip from one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, we finally see a bit of the comic relief that accompanies the violent political undertones of the 2154-era film. Damon's lead character, Max DeCosta, is an ex-con who travels to the "Elysium" space station on a mission to save his life as well as bring salvation to the poverty-stricken Earth.
The clip reveals a snarky repartee between Damon's character, a convicted felon, and an inconsiderate and persistent robot ("Would you like a pill?! Stop talking!") dealing with his case. Damon is the only actor seen in the clip, but is he the only star featured in the movie? Negative: the sci-fi thriller also stars Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, William Fichtner, and Wagner Moura.
Max may have a 78.3% chance of regression, but Elysium will 100% arrive in theatres on August 9.
