Elysium Official Trailer #2

Elysium is one of the coolest science fiction film concepts I have ever seen!!!

In this film which takes place in the year 2154. The “Privileged” live on a massive space station that orbits the earth called Elysium. While the rest of humanity live on earth. Earth is a third world totalitarian police state with people treated like cattle. Robots patrol, and maintain order.

We find our hero Max played by actor (Matt Damon) just out of prison
in a life and death battle for survival. Finding out the only way to save himself, and humanity is to break into where the privileged live aka Elysium. Max is then outfitted with technology that allows him to override there security system. Three spaceships then head to Elysium.

Enjoy!! :)

Recently stumbled upon this incredible clip. Haven’t seen this in years!!

This clip is taken from the computer animation odyssey The Gate To The Mind’s Eye.

For those of you, who haven’t seen this amazing film its out of this world cool!!
Thomas Dolby does music for the film. Even though the CGI animations, are dated this film is a test to the earlier animation styles of the 90’s, and how cool they still are!!

Enjoy!! :)

Everyone here is the new trailer for Oblivion!

The science fiction movie Oblivion is based off of the graphic novel of the same name
created by Joseph Kosinski.

In this new film we follow the character of Jack Harper played by actor (Tom Cruise)
who lives thousands of feet up in the sky, and patrols whats left of earth after decades of war against a race known as the Scavs.

Harpers job consists of repairing drones. These drones help gather information and resources. Jacks mission is almost completed when a spaceship crashes with an woman onboard. Once she arrives things seem to get very interesting to say the least!

The special effects in this movie look incredible, and from the trailer above I think its certaintly worth seeing!

Enjoy!! :)
