With only five days left to live, Damon's Max decides to break bad by trying to infiltrate utopian Elysium in the second promo video for Neill Blomkamp's action-packed film.

A second trailer for Neill Blomkamp's "Elysium" has just arrived online via Yahoo! Movies. It offers further details about why leading man Matt Damon insists on breaking into utopian space station. It is revealed that Damon, in his role as blue-collar worker Max, only has five days left to live due to cancer. With a young girl's life at stake too, he is more determined to do the seemingly impossible mission.

The core story is about two very different planets belonging to certain groups of people in the year 2159. The first planet is called Elysium, a man-made space station where poverty and illness don't exist. On the contrary, Earth is nothing but a global garbage dump where almost all people suffer from chronic disease and seem to have no choice but to live with it until it's time for them to die.

Jodie Foster is introduced as Secretary Rhodes, a hard government official who is in charge of preserving the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. Joining her is Sharlto Copley, who is featured as a bearded, menacing villain named Kruger.

William Fichtner, Michael Shanks, Diego Luna and Alice Braga are included in the cast of the film, produced by Bill Block and Simon Kinberg.

"Elysium" will hit theaters nationwide on August 9.
