A ton of concept art for Tom Cruise's Oblivion; first trailer to premiere in front of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey!

Dec. 2, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Get ready for some epic sci-fi in these pieces of concept art from Joseph Kosinski's OBLIVION, starring Tom Cruise. A few of the images we've already seen, but the majority are totally new and rather impressive. I've been intrigued by this project from the get-go, but didn't realize it would be so epic in scale. Kosinski, who last directed TRON: LEGACY, has insinuated it would be more of a character piece, and that may be true, but it still takes place on a massive scale judging by these images. From the barren, ravaged surface of Earth to the skies and to the stars, it seems that this will be a space-and-time spanning sci-fi extravaganza. I have no problem with that, either.

OBLIVION is based on a graphic novel idea by Kosinski and Arvid Nelson, with a script by Kosinski, William Monahan, Karl Gajdusek, and Michael Arndt (the upcoming STAR WARS VII).

Here's the official synopsis:

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 mans 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, Jacks mission is nearly complete. Living 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.

And here's the pics:

OBLIVION, directed by Joseph Kosinski, and starring Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Zoe Bell, and Melissa Leo is slated to hit theaters on April 19, 2013. The trailer will premiere this month, just ahead of THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY.

Extra Tidbit: I seem to say this every year, but man does 2013 seem to be stacking up to be one hell of a year for movies. The Mayans better be wrong!

Nice

Tom Cruise going all out it seems with his creative forces. I love it. 2013 looks be a solid year for the sci-fi/fantasy/comic books nerds.

Tom cruise as Wall-E?! No I kid, all jokes aside that art does look amazing and after being disappointed with Prometheus here's hoping this film will be the great big sci-fi film I didn't get this year

It looks super cool so far, Joseph Kosinki is a talent to watch. I really liked Tron Legacy, and it looked absolutely incredible. Wonder if his name is in the running for Star Wars VII, as Machinelovers has suggested. Between this and All You Need is Kill, it would seem Tom Cruise will be on a bit of a sci-fi action roll! Looking forward to it.

So not only with the Hobbit are we more than likely getting a great movie, we are also apparently getting trailers of Man of Steel, Oblivion, Star Trek and possibly Pacific Rim?!?!? Also, I have very high hopes for this movie, at the very least it should be visually fantastic hopefully the story will be as well.

The concept art looks stunning, I'm hopeful the finished product will look the same. The only thing that has me skeptical at this point is Cruise.

SOLD. We don't get enough post-apocalyptic sci fi epic. And if Tom Cruise is in there, it can't suck.

sweet!

have been stoked for this movie ever since I first heard the concept. Cruise is awesome, I love sci-fi flicks and the director of Tron Legacy? He has an amazing visual flair and audio flare. This one has been on my most anticipated of 2013 list for quite some time, and right near the top. These concept images are fantastic and god damn... ANOTHER new trailer in front of The Hobbit? this year is gonna end with one hell of a bang.!

Looks promising...

But hopefully isn't just a big CGI fest that feels artificial like so many of these kinds of movies do nowadays. I miss Sci Fi that had some real world grit to it.
