Elysium Blu-ray Release Date, Details and Pre-OrderWriter/director Neill Blomkamp’s Sci-fi political thriller Elysium starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley is coming to Blu-ray and DVD with a release date of December 17.

Elysium is Blomkamp’s first film since his breakout hit District 13. While it performed moderately well in North America with $91.5 million in ticket sales, overseas business has been much stronger where grosses have reached $171.7 million. With a budget almost four times the amount of District 13 at $115 million, Elysium wasn’t quite the hit many thought it would be.
