First trailer for the sci-fi epic Oblivion starring Tom Cruise looks like a futuristic blast

Joseph Kosinski's sophomore effort OBLIVION, starring Tom Cruise has finally debuted a trailer and it looks every bit as sharp, energetic, and flashy as his first film, TRON: LEGACY.  Love it or loathe it, it's hard to dismiss the sleek beauty that was TRON: LEGACY and Kosinski's style is ever present in this new trailer for OBLIVION.  Taking place on a ravaged Earth and traversing through time and space, this sci-fi epic looks like a total blast and has now solidified its place in my top ten most-anticipated films of 2013. 

Kosinski has said that OBLIVION is supposed to be more of a character study than anything else, but it looks like he managed to squeeze in some epic coolness, fast-paced action, and clean, sweeping visuals to plus it up.  I'm stoked. 

Buckle up:

Here's the synopsis:

From TRON LEGACY director Joseph Kosinski and critically acclaimed comic creator Arvid Nelson comes an original sci-fi adventure of epic proportions. In a future where the Earth’s surface has been irradiated beyond recognition, the remnants of humanity live above the clouds, safe from the brutal alien Scavengers that stalk the ruins. But when surface drone repairman Jak discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off an unstoppable chain of events that will force him to question everything he knows.

OBLIVION, starring Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Morgan Freeman, Melissa Leo, and Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, opens April 26, 2013.
