With Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium releasing in the UK on the 21st of August and this very Friday in the US an all new featurette has been released via Yahoo.
Elysium features a range of robots, or droids, that are seamlessly integrated into the world thanks to Blomkamp enlisting the help of his Distric 9 cohorts, Weta, to design the droids. The new featurette takes an in depth look into that side of the production and features some more exclusive footage.
Enjoy the droids making of featurette below:
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 on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes, a 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 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.
