Perennial Oscar nominee Stephen Daldry is back this year with Trash, an adventure set in the slums of Rio de Janeiro. Though it features some well known, well regarded faces like Martin Sheen, Rooney Mara, and Wagner Moura, the real stars of the film are a trio of young unknowns.
Rickson Tevez, Gabriel Weinstein, and Luis Eduardo play three favela kids who spend their days picking through trash. One day they come across a wallet that happens to be of interest to some powerful and potentially dangerous people, sending them on an exciting adventure. Christian Duurvoort co-directed.

Narcos is the Netflix series that tells the bloody story of Pablo Escobar, the Medellin cartel, and the law agents who sought to control the flow of cocaine and money in and out of Escobar’s organization. This new Narcos trailer features voiceover from Boyd Holbrook, who plays one of the feds on Escobar’s trail, explaining just how messed up the situation was. It also shows off Wagner Moura as Escobar, and Pedro Pascal as the partner of Holbrook’s agent.

“Can’t Find The Luxury You Deserve On Earth? Look No Further Than Elysium”
Sony’s viral marketing campaign for District 9 helmer Neill Blomkamp‘s second feature film Elysium might have been the most interesting thing I encountered on the show floor on preview night at Comic Con 2012. They had an border checkpoint booth with a human-shaped automated system to find out if you qualify for homes on Elysium — a pristine man made spaceship oasis for the super rich. The film takes place 150-or-so years in the future where the Earth is overpopulated and ruined, and the rich live on this luxury space station protected by intense anti-immigration laws. The booth at Comic Con contained a bunch of photos of what your home on Elysium could look like, and flyers full of sales information. The flyer points to a website, itsbetterupthere.com, which allows you to apply to become a citizen of Elysium. We took photos of the booth and materials, and have included all the images after the jump for you to explore.
