Prepare for Oblivion this Friday with a 20 minute behind the scenes video featuring brand new footage

Apr. 15, 2013by: Alex Maidy

I am excited for OBLIVION to open this Friday, mostly because this will be the unofficial kick-off to the summer movie season. After OBLIVION, we are just a few weeks away from IRON MAN 3 and then STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS. While those other two films are certified blockbusters, OBLIVION is a harder sell. Sure it stars Tom Cruise, but it is also a very mysterious film without a clear plot. For me, I was sold on the first trailer as well as the involvement from director Joseph Kosinski, but we have seen many unique scifi projects flounder in the past.

This extensive featurette entitled THE WORLD OF OBLIVION is twenty minutes of interviews with cast and crew alongside some all new footage from the movie. From what you can see here, OBLIVION is an action movie with a thinking man's screenplay. Kosinski looks to have taken the approach of telling a visually stunning movie but going that extra mile to make sure that there is something deeper at the core of the film.

Check out the feature below.

And here is a plot summary in case you forgot:

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 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.

OBLIVION starring Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough, Olga Kurylenko and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau opens on Friday, April 19th.

Just saw it tonight. A bad mash up of lots of sci-fi movie plots, none of which is explained properly. Slow, plodding pace that's so slow, you can actually feel time start to flow backwards at different points in the movie.

I loved it.

Hey....it's sci-fi. What's not to love. Saw this on Saturday night and it really was a cool film. Don't listen to all the negative Nancy's. go and see it and make up your own mind. It's Tom fucking Cruise man.

Very Nice

I actually enjoyed the movie quite a bit. One of the primary reasons being how immersive the world is. The story does drag out in a few parts and it could have done with a bit more editing, but it is still an above average jaunt through the sci-fi genre. This feature made me appreciate that all the more. Kudos

Wow

You know I do want to see this, but I can't think of another movie where they've posted so many featurettes and behind the scenes and other nonsense for a movie, it's like they seriously think they have a disaster on their hands and have to put out as much explaining this thing as possible...Shit when I saw Jurassic Park 3D in IMAX he even had a special message before the trailer asking people to come see it in IMAX.

What movie did you watch, dude. He didn't seem worn out at all. Many young guys can't do the things Tom Cruise does at his age.

Movie looks to be pretty lame.

This had great potential to be something big. But it cuts corners where it counts. The movie has amazing imagery and I love how they actually built a full scale BubbleJet. But again, the story drags this down. It is so overdone with post apocalyptic settings. No spoilers, but you already know what to expect. No big twist, no big jaw dropping moments. Tom Cruise is great as always but he seems worn out the entire film. I know doing all of his own stunts will do that to him but it isn't fun
