Set in the year 2159, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds. Starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley. In cinemas 30 August.
Blomkamp showed about 10 minutes of footage from the anticipated film at a special screening.
Matt Damon, who stars alongside Jodie Foster, introduced the footage in Berlin and appeared at Hollywood's Arclight Theatre via satellite.
In the film, Earth has become a trash-filled landscape policed by robotic droids.
Damon plays a diseased Earthling trying to infiltrate Elysium to find a cure for himself, and possibly all of humanity.
The movie also stars District 9 star Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Diego Luna, Wagner Moura and Alice Braga.
Elysium is set to open in South Africa on 30 August.
Here is a first look at the Elysium promotional poster.
