Matt Damon Shows the Funny Side of ‘Elysium’ in First Clip

Matt Damon bares it all (even his scalp!) in Elysiumbut the first clip of Neill Blomkamp‘s latest film fails to reveal all that much. But we still get something of tremendous value: some laughs.

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.
