|Matt Damon stars as Max in Elysium.|
I watched Wreck-It Ralph again last night, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I realized, just a few moments into the film, that the story line sits up the same structure for the upcoming Matt Damon-Jodie Foster drama Elysium, wherein Max (Damon) lives in the garbage dump that earth has become (like Ralph living in the trash heap) and he has to rob the Space Station Elysium of something so he can live better (like Ralph getting the medal from Hero's Duty to advance to Niceland so his life will be better). There appears to be another scene from Wreck-It Ralph mirrored in an upcoming blockbuster, Star Trek Into Darkness.
