OBLIVION looks like the post-apocalyptic bee's knees. The sci-fi actioner will surely wow us with the always reliable Tom Cruise, dynamic direction from TRON: LEGACY's Joseph Kosinski, and Morgan Freeman's ability to look badass while wearing sunglasses (see above). What else do you need to get you primed for this flick?
How about a prerequisite shot of Tom Cruise running? Yes, that's the latest update to come from the film's Facebook page. The shot has Cruise sprinting from his spaceship, holding a device of some sort, and bracing himself for the worst. What could it be? An explosion? A mutant alien thing? Morgan Freeman wielding a gun that shoots flaming chainsaws? We can only imagine, but I'm pulling for the latter.
OBLIVION hits theaters April 26th, 2013. It stars Cruise, Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Melissa Leo and Nicolaj Coster-Waldau. Enjoy the snapshot and a synopsis for the film below.
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.
