Joseph Kosinski's epic sci-fi project OBLIVION is filming right now in California and someone managed to grab some photos of the film's star Tom Cruise on the set, sporting a futuristic military suit and a rifle on his back. As is usual for BTS pics, the quality leaves a lot to be desired of, but you can still make out the visual style the filmmakers are going for. Take a look at the images below.
The movie centers on a battle-damaged soldier who, assigned to a desolate planet after a court-martial, patrols the bleak landscape in an effort to destroy the last vestiges of a primitive alien race. When a mysterious traveler arrives unexpectedly, their lives become inextricably linked as they are forced to question everything they know about this world and themselves.
Cruise will play the soldier who's stuck alone on the planet, repairing the drones that patrol and destroy a savage alien life form. He encounters a beautiful woman who crashes in a craft, and their experience together forces him to question his world view.
OBLIVION is set to hit theaters on April 26th, 2013, starring Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko (below), Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Melissa Leo.
