It's Matt Damon vs. Sharlto Copley in kickass new Elysium trailer

Sony's released a new trailer for Elysium, and it kicks everything up a notch. It has more action, danger and even humor. Matt Damon headlines the film and finds himself going toe to toe with Sharlto Copley. Meanwhile, Jodie Foster's doing serious damage from a powerful position.

The story is set in the year 2154. The Earth is a polluted mess, and the population consists of the working class. If you're rolling in dough, you can afford to stay on Elysium, a manmade space station where only the rich are allowed. It's a luxurious place with advanced everything, including medical care.

When his life is on the line, Damon's Max De Costa does whatever it takes to get to Elysium. That means he has to battle Copley's Kruger, a vicious assassin, who's been commissioned to take him out.

Check out the latest trailer below:

Elysium opens in theaters Aug. 9.
