Los Angeles - The year is 2154, and Earth belongs to the poor. The wealthiest citizens live on Elysium, (el-IS'-ee-um) an idyllic, disease-free utopia they built in space.

A few hundred film fans in Los Angeles and Berlin on Monday got an early look at the future home of the 1 percent as imagined by District 9 writer-director Neill Blomkamp.

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.
