Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.

Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on 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.




The first trailer will debut Sunday, December 9th on iTunes Trailers. It is said to be attached to screenings of Jack Reacher (which also stars Cruise) and possibly The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey later this month. Be sure to check CBM when the trailer's released.

Oblivion also stars Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Melissa Leo. The film is set to hit theaters April 19th, 2013, and will be released in IMAX a week before.

Wow, love it.

Nice. Now that's a poster I'd think twice about buying if the movie is good. But it probably will be.

Is this the human version of WALL-E?

Mother[frick]ers, I have a novel project called ORBITAL with the same plot...

Either the structure is leaning or it's a horrible image put together.

Awesome, I loved the comic book that this is based on.
Wait, this isn't a comicbook movie. Why don't we do articles on Anna Karenina, where we can all bitch about how Keira Knightley is a really bad casting decision because the book describes her as being voluptious or call Tom Hooper the new Joel Schumacher because of his terrible version of Great Expectations with Helena Bonham Carter's Miss Havisham being far too hammy, comedic and tonhue-in-cheek?

Still, Tron Legacy was awesome, so this'll probably be classic.

Tron Legacy totally ripped off the score to TDKR. It went into the future and did it.

@DukeAcureds: Kosinski made a graphic novel from this story, and that's what the movie is based on.

hmmmmmmm,looks interesting.
AlexDeLarge87 - 12/7/2012, 2:49 PM
Looks ok. Love scifi so i hope this is good. There´s so little good scifi movies nowadays.

Wish Cruise wouldnt take all the big movie roles thou.
The fact that he get the role of Jack Reacher makes me puke.
Eric Bana would have been better.

Love the poster. really great photo, and original poster, taking into account they didnt put Tom's face/body taking all the space of the pic

lol pretty cool guess tomcat is really trying to make a comeback , His role in Tropic Thunder has been his best role in awhile.

Can't wait! I love Tom Cruise
NostalgicYouth - 12/7/2012, 4:13 PM
I don't get why people think Joseph Kosinski's wrote Tron legacy, he only directed it; plus it was his first movie, of coarse it wasn't going to be the best what do guys expect?

Rom@ I stand corrected.

That pod looks like they pinched some ideas from the mono-crafts of Cowboy Bebop.
TheCaptain - 12/7/2012, 9:12 PM
Dammit I think of the video game when I hear "Oblivion" :/
Kyos - 12/8/2012, 3:22 AM
So, another movie that I'd be very interested in seeing if it didn't have Cruise as the lead?! Damn...!
FireKnightRises - 12/8/2012, 3:28 AM
cool poster

Like Tron: Legacy it looks promising, especially beyond several lines of torrid dialogue. Off topic.., is the blonde in the blue still following us?
