I sometimes take a break from video games here on Fine Art to show the very best in concept art from the movie business. Today is one of the days, because Elysium's art is worth the detour.

The images you'll see below are the work of Ben Mauro, an artist we've featured previously here on Fine Art for his excellent robots and BioShock fake-outs.

While he was far from the only person to work on the film's design - you can also thank guys like Aaron Beck, Christian Pearce and Leri Greer - he did recently share a massive dump of images that he contributed to the four-year project, the highlights of which I'm posting here.

To see the rest, and more of Ben's work, head to his personal site.

This is a mini rant, its all over the place, but it expresses my frustrations with this film.. enter at your own risk:

I thought the climax happened too early. The scene with Max and the crew going after the CEO was nuts and awesome. Very tense. But that was my favorite scene. One of my favorite things were the robots and you only see two of them blow up despite seeing so many of them early on.. On the Elysium? The only army robots that you see show up at the end. In fact the President was traveling with human Special Forces people.. perfect opportunity to use them robots again. Side thing two why didn't Elysium have any sort of defense set up ON the ship.. I didn't think the reason for the girls to come along was strong enough. He simply liked the girl but I didn't really think there was anything that drove him to liking her unless this kind of thing happens a lot with the women he likes (talking about the bad guy here). For as epic of a first half. I wanted more out of Elysium. Why did the girl want to be president so bad. I didn't feel like she had a good enough reason to go for the position.. There was just a lot that I felt could have been written stronger or maybe even deserve a sequel or something. I wanted a stronger finisher. If anything maybe more of Elysium. In the end I felt like I wanted to be on Earth more since it seemed more interesting. It honestly made me want to go back and watch district 9. Not in a bad way. And dude... those fight scenes. The hand to hand combat scenes? What the fuck was going on... the camera work was just awful. But the cinematography wasn't all bad. Don't get me wrong, the movie wasn't bad. I just felt like there was a lot of missed opportunity. A lot of it was gorgeous. Neill Blomkamp should just stick to creating the world though instead of writing his pieces since I think he could benefit greatly from that..

End of mini rant.
