Want to see what all the fuss is about in the gorgeous space station of Elysium? Some new footage from Neill Blomkamp’s flick finally shows off why everyone is trying so hard to get there.

The clip, which features interviews with Blomkamp (District 9) and star Matt Damon, splices in quite a bit of new footage showing the disparity between the third-world Earth and elitist space station.

This being a Blomkamp movie, you almost knew it would have a pretty major class-warfare vibe — and it’s never been more defined than when looking at the two starkly different settings here.

If nothing else, Blomkamp has made a striking film — let's just hope it’s actually good.

Head over to AOL to watch the clip right here.

Elysium opens Aug. 8, 2013.
