Another trailer has just been released for Elysium, the upcoming sci-fi action film staring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. The film, set in 2154, depicts a divide between humanity with the majority consigned to an unstable and rugged existence on an overpopulated Earth while the privileged enjoy a crime-, war-, hunger-, and sickness-free life in Elysium, a massive utopian metropolis floating above earth. Damon plays Max DeCosta, a man stricken with cancer who intends to get to Elysium to be cured, very much against the wishes of Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Foster). Elysium is appropriately helmed by South African-Canadian director Neill Blomkamp, whose 2009 hit District 9 similarly explored themes related to class, immigration and segregation in the future. Elysium is scheduled to hit theaters August 9th.

Sean “Diddy” Combs has successfully transferred his hustle in music to his newest ventures in entrepreneurship. Today, CIROC and Casio’s G-Shock have announced that they will be collaborating on a Breathalyzer Watch. CIROC and Diddy have always been advocates for responsible drinking – hence, the side of the transparent watch will feature a built-in breathalyzer that shows your blood alcohol content on the watch’s face. The watch is set to be featured in three colors – all of which resemble CIROC’s signature color gradient found across its bottles. With brash CIROC branding on the watch mixed with the functionality of a breathlyzer, the collaborative watch will surely be a conversation starter next time you’re out on the town. The CIROC x G-Shock Breathalyzer Watch will be available at select G-Shock retailers starting August 2nd.
It’s hard to safe what will happen with Sneakerhead culture in the next five years. With Nike pretty much controlling the flow of 90% of the prized goods at their leisure, we’re all sheep at the end of the day. But who’s to judge. For some of us, it’s still about loving the way sneakers look on your feet, the nostalgia of having kicks you had or couldn’t have as a kid, going on sneaker mission with your friends, coming up on a rare pair at a mom and pop shops, but for others it’s all about the flip. We all know reselling is a big money game, but the players are getting younger, and the stakes are getting higher. The real questions is: are these kids ruining the culture? Nightline recently took an honest look at where the sneakergamer is in 2013.
