Dailies | Matt Damon Feels Your Automated-Voice-System Rage in ‘Elysium’ Clip (Video)

Robots just don't understand

It's hard enough explaining a legal misunderstanding to an officer of the law, but in "Elysium," it appears virtually impossible — because those officers are robots.

The first clip from Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi film features Matt Damon trying to plead his case to what appears to be an automated parole officer, who doesn't appear to have the capability of understanding misunderstandings.

Damon stars in Sony's Aug. 9 release as an ex-convict living on Earth with only five days left to live. In order to save himself — and maybe humanity — he breaks into a massive space station where only the wealthiest humans live.

Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley ("District 9") co-star with Damon in the socially conscious futuristic thriller.
