A new television spot for Oblivion has hit the Internet. Director Joseph Kosinski and star Tom Cruise plan to take us on a sci-fi, action packed, psychological roller coaster thrill ride of a movie. At least that’s what the official movie site says.
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 set and design of the movie look fantastic. The juxtaposition of clean high tech against the dirty, dark background of a devastated Earth is a powerful visual medium.
The TV spot focuses on the title character Jack (Cruise) whose eyes are about to be opened to the hidden truth about the war and it’s consequences.
Oblivion stars Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Melissa Leo. The movie hits theater screens on April 19th.
