I swear I saw a white horse towards the end of that scene standing by one of the cars..
Did anyone else see it?
Thank God, someone else saw it! I thought I was going insane. What was it supposed to mean?
I don't know what it means but now I would really like to.
This is the only Google result for this right now. I'm glad I found it because my wife thought I was nuts. She swears that what I saw was the white horse on the side of the shuttle. Feels good to be vindicated, even if it's just a couple other people on the internet (for now.)
I saw it as well - googled and only found this and feel less crazy - white horses are often associated in mythology with "the sun chariot, with warrior-heroes, with fertility (in both mare and stallion manifestations), or with an end-of-time saviour" see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_horse_%28mythology%29 glad you saw it too
I spotted this Easter egg too. Thanks for confirming I wasn't seeing things and sparing me from having to watch the movie again just to double check.
I saw it too. It reminded me a bit of the white horse unicorn in the dream sequence of Blade Runner. Kind of a bold contrasting mythical image in a bleak future environment.
i thought i was going nuts when i saw it and everyone else next to me didn't. they thought i was crazy... i'm so glad someone created this link...
I saw it too, amazing.
I saw it too. and the one on the side of the shuttle. And there was one more, On a child's drawing as Max woke up in Freys hause. Unicorn or smth, right behind him.
Funny. Searching in russian I found 1 result: "Elysium" - "Three white horses" song. )))
Its a punk rock band made a cover on a famous old song in 2009. must be coincidence
I also saw it (this was on the IMAX version). Apparently no one else saw it, including the girlfriend. To me it was pretty clear that it wasn't a "pattern that looks like a horse", but really there on the image(s). I'm sure the movie has plenty of other easter eggs. A couple of scenes/objects made me think "why does this scene/object/item ring a bell?".
I saw it also. The bad guys' shuttle had a white drawing of a horse/buck type creature. Also, the movie was released by Tristar which company symbol is a white horse with wings.
Just got back from the movies and saw it too! My husband thought I was nuts...haha! I win...SO glad other people noticed it as well!!
Congratulations. I've been waiting for you. Only a handful of people out of millions saw what you did. You are unique. Remember this: Since mankind's dawn, a handful of oppressors have accepted the responsibility over our lives that we should have accepted for ourselves. By doing so, they took our power. By doing nothing, we gave it away. We've seen where their way leads, through camps and wars, towards the slaughterhouse.
I saw it! I thought they were going to have Matt Damon escape on the horse and then thought "How stupid, a horse would have run away from all that chaos" but then the horse was gone. Next scene a painting of the horse is on the shuttle and then he hides under a cart with a whitish donkey. Tristar symbol? Director signature?
Yes it was there ... a white horse grazing! I wondered what the significance was .... glad to know that others saw it too!
Not a horse on the shuttle, but a springbok- emblem of the South Africa rugby team.
YES!!! I'm one of the privileged few, and this is still the only Google result talking about it! My husband has seen it TWICE and he still didn't catch it. I thought I was crazy, or just that the scene was supposed to take place in some kind of field. Since it was during an overhead shot, I wasn't sure if it was just a nearby grazing horse, but it was damn close to all the action. Great Easter Egg!
Thanks people. I feel much less psychotic. Saw it with my son and his lovely wife, they didn't see it.
i saw a white horse also although my husband did not. I am also a psychic/medium and wondered if i happened to see a horse in spirit in this scene that only people with clairvoyant abilites like me can see. I also see spirit people sometimes.
Yeah, I saw it too. looked like a unicorn to me -- and then there was a unicorn drawing on the wall when he woke up (like joujou says above).
Alright everyone. I did this for myself and my boyfriend, so you're welcome. I saw the movie last night, I saw the horse, he didn't. So I scoured the web for clues as to precisely where the horse was and found odd misleading information. I dl the movie and went over the hijack scene several times with no luck. By chance though I found it, yaay! Ok, Carlye's ship crashes, shot of Jodie talking to Kruger. His ship comes in and lands, he walks towards it, he waves at the kneeling soldier who sorta salutes. You can see what I believe is a white goat painted on the ship. Then bam! The white horse appears for about 2 seconds, bottom left of the screen. It's tethered to something, then back to Matt Damon driving. Hope this helps, cheers!
It wasn`t a horse, but i think it was a kind of goat.
And at the left there was standing a man to get in a car i suppose.
Maybe this will help: http://i1181.photobucket.com/albums/x428/christine1960/elysium.jpg
Thank f@#ck! I thought I was going loopy for the last 6 months and so did everyone that I told about it! In my version it occurs at time 52:47, but it's not the same horse as the photobucket link above. That's a different horse....
Shame I can't reply on here, but in the scene I described it's a horse not a goat. Neigh!
