Tom Cruise is back, straight off that horrible binge he called Rock of Ages, in his first sci-fi film since War of the Worlds – which was surprisingly good. Oblivion is from director Joe Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) starring Cruise and Morgan Freeman and the film’s plot has to do with Cruise – being a veteran military officer – being sent to a distant planet (more than likely, Earth) where a mysterious race of Aliens have taken over. His journey of discovery is interrupted when Freeman’s character pops up and he’s faced with uncertain dilemmas.
The movie looks pretty intriguing and with this first trailer (albeit, released in Colombia instead of the US) we get a sense of what is going on without ever seeing the film’s actual baddies.
I want to see more. You can bet that the US trailer will be attached to an upcoming film – maybe The Hobbit or Les Miserables.
