New poster double feature: Oblivion and CBGB

There's a couple of new posters out for two completely different films. First up there's a new IMAX poster for OBLIVION that has a very lonely looking Tom Cruise looking off into the distance. Everything I've seen for OBLIVION so far has a very sleek and clean look to it and this new poster is no different. I'm still not sold on the film but I am intrigued by the story and visuals so...

But, the first snip of the trailer gives me some hope...
