New Elysium Pictures

We're still recovering from the amazing Elysium trailer that was released a couple of days ago.

Which is why we're more than a little giddy at these brand new images.

While the trailer gave us a proper sneak peek at the scope of the two worlds Neill Blomkamp has created for his sci-fi actioner, the pictures focus more on the grim, gritty and muscular world that Matt Damon's Max is forced to live in.

For those unfamiliar with the story, Elysium takes place in 2154, where the mega-rich live aboard a luxurious space station orbiting the earth. Back on terra nova, things are quite as pretty, with disease, poverty and squalor running rife.

Which is where Max comes in - arming himself with an exoskeleton that he'll hope will let him break into Elysium, AKA the most guarded place in the universe.

Elysium opens in the UK September 20 2013.
