(AP) 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 Theater 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.


"Elysium" is set to open in August.
