Sweet Trailer…Joseph Kosinski's Sci-Fi Thriller 'Oblivion'

After a week of posts making reference to Universal not showing us anything about Oblivion they put out a trailer that does not fail to impress. Cruise stars as Jack Harper, one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on a post-apocalyptic Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete. Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands. Enough exposition, enjoy this stunning trailer…

This looks fascinating and flat out awesome. Can’t wait to see how this unfolds, especially on an IMAX screen. Very impressive visually speaking but the concept of the story sounds equally strong. I guess that little J.J. Abrams sci-fi project now has a little competition next year, don’t you think?

Oblivion is directed by Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy) and stars Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Melissa Leo and Morgan Freeman. This post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller will be released next Spring nation wide on April 19, 2013 and exclusively on IMAX on April 12th.

      Yeah, surprising how so many high profile and big budget sci-fi films are kept under wraps until so close to the release date. Either way I’m stoked, glad to hear I’m not alone;)

    On the one hand, this is by Joseph Kosinski, and Tron: Legacy sucked; as has been pointed out elsewhere on the web, this also looks a lot like a live-action gritty Wall-E rift, which frankly bothers me much less than the Tron thing. Man, I hated that movie.

    Anyways, on the other hand, the movie looks great and it’s original sci-fi, something I can always get excited for. Also, Cruise is, well, awesome, and I love, love, love the rest of that cast– Leo, Coster-Waldau, Kurylenko, and Freeman are all exciting performers. So basically I could see Oblivion being a knock-out or being a pretty failure.
