Elysium DVD release date scheduled for December

Elysium-2 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced the Elysium DVD release date for December 17, 2013. The Blu-ray version will contain extended scenes, along with both pre-production and post-production diaries.

Elysium was released earlier this year and has made over $260 million worldwide. That’s a good result for director Neill Blomkamp and Sony, and while it wasn’t received as well as District 9, it was still a cool sci-fi film. Blomkamp will next begin work on another sci-fi project called Chappie which will star Hugh Jackman and Sharlto Copley.
