Sony has just dropped the first Elysium Citizenship Initiative will you make the cut? Elysium is an upcoming science fiction film written and directed by Neill Blomkamp scheduled to be released on August 9, 2013. Starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, Elysium takes place on a ravaged Earth and a luxurious space habitat named Elysium. The film will explore political themes such as “immigration, health care and class issues.”
In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on Elysium – a Stanford torus space habitat in Earth orbit – while the rest live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet’s crime and poverty, and they critically need the state-of-the-art medical care available on Elysium – but some in Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens’ luxurious lifestyle. The only one with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is 36 year-old Max De Costa (Matt Damon), an ordinary man in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces.

All of them out in a fighting rage for survival. Tokyo Jungle is published by Sony Computer Entertainment, exclusively for PlayStation 3 platform with a Japanese release date of June 7, 2012. An interview with Joystiq at the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Sony’s Scott Rohde confirmed international release in North America and Europe. No release date has been announced. The game is a single-player, you choice a Story Mode, the player plays through missions centered around various animals. The player will discover the truth behind mankind’s disappearance. A Pomeranian dog and thoroughbred racehorse are key characters in the story.

This is a pretty cool video, photographer Dave Hill took 2D pictures with a Sony NEX-5 camera cutting and pasting photos with 3D laying tools creating am amazing Spider-Man Mural. Unfortunately I think it would be cooler if everything was 3D instead of flat pictures. Producing an interactive picture bringing The Amazing Spider-Man to life. The really cool part about this Spider-Man Mural is you can interact by submitting your own picture at www.sony.com/experience hence the white shadow people could be you! Check out the full video below. The Amazing Spider-Man hits theaters July 3, 2012.
