About the Book:

In the year 2159 two classes of people exist. The very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an over populated, ruined Earth...

From Neill Blomkamp, the director of the acclaimed District 9, comes Elysium, an epic sci-fi film starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster.

Produced in close cooperation with the filmmakers, Elysium: The Art of the Film features exclusive interviews, behind the scenes photos, and wealth of stunning production art, including designs from Weta Workshop (District 9, Lord of the Rings), and the legendary futurist Syd Mead (Blade Runner, Tron).

As director Neill Blomkamp says in the foreword, this book offers a "peek behind the curtain" of the film's journey to the big screen. He discusses his influences and thinking behind the making of the film — and you get to see some of the 3,000 pieces of concept art that were made even before anyone walked onto a set. Attractively presented and well thought out, Elysium: The Art of the Film is sure to be a real treat for fans of science fiction and special effects, as well as movie buffs.

What people say:

"With some of the year's most interesting design, Elysium was ripe for a great "Art of..." book and Mark Salisbury delivered." — Starburst Magazine

"Crammed full of stunning production stills, art designs from the celebrated Weta Workshop and closer looks at props you may have missed, this book serves as the ideal complement to Blomkamp's sci-fi thriller." — Books Monthly
