Oblivion Synopsis

Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the visionary director of TRON: Legacy and producers of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.

2077: Jack Harper (Cruise) serves as a security repairmen stationed on an evacuated Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying alien threat who still scavenges what’s left of our planet, Jack’s mission is almost complete. In a matter of two weeks, he will join the remaining survivors on a lunar colony far from the war-torn world he has long called home.

Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, Jack’s soaring existence is brought crashing down after he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Drawn to Jack through a connection that transcends logic, her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he thought he knew. With a reality that is shattered as he discovers shocking truths that connect him to Earth of the past, Jack will be pushed to a heroism he didn’t know he contained within. The fate of humanity now rests solely in the hands of a man who believed our world was soon to be lost forever.

Oblivion was shot in stunning digital 4K resolution on location across the United States and Iceland.

Pain & Gain Leads Friday Box Office On Its Way To $20 Million Weekend Pain & Gain Leads Friday Box Office On Its Way To $20 Million Weekend
Michael Bay's Pain & Gain cost a hell of a lot less than any other movie he's made, which means that this opening weekend comes with much lower stakes. So while a $7 million Friday take-- including $750,000 from Thursday midnight shows-- would spell disaster for a Transformers movie, it seems to be positioning Pain & Gain for a pretty solid debut

The process of assembling the bubbleship looks like something you'd see in a fancy car commercial, with the white background and all those gleaming pieces, and the crew's delight at actually assembling the machine is evidence alone of just how much these kinds of movies usually rely on CGI. Seeing Cruise get giddy about the machine and climbing into the big rotating gimbal is no surprise

M83's music has been used constantly in so many films, TV shows, commercials and trailers that you might have convinced yourself they only make music for the sake of backing up moving images. But Oblivion will in fact be the first film for which M83-- a.k.a. Anthony Gonzalez-- has written the music, lending his ethereal, electronic-backed music to the sci-fi film from Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski. We've been dying to get a hint of what M83 had brought to the film

Oblivion is set in a far and dystopian future, and centers on Jack Harper (Cruise), a court marshaled veteran turned repairman stationed on what remains of Earth.

Oblivion blitzed the NFL playoffs on Sunday, with a TV spot that spelled out the deeper mystery of this Tom Cruise thriller. Sure, we still have the planet’s most-bankable movie star doing his best WALL-E impersonation, cleaning up after a war that seemingly decimated our population. But then Morgan Freeman throws Cruise a curve ball, and Oblivion kicks into a higher gear.

We’re interested in Oblivion for a number of reasons. There are a string of post-apocalyptic movies on tap for this year, and they’ll mostly have mega-star-power. But only Oblivion boasts Cruise as a human WALL-E, left behind on our abandoned planet and tasked with a physical job (in his case, repairing drones) until he encounters “someone” who changes his direction.

Director's commentary tracks on Blu-rays and DVDs are always fascinating because it's interesting to hear, for better of for worse, what was going on in their minds when they were shooting a particular shot or handling a certain part of the story. Doing a commentary track for a trailer, however, is an interesting twist on that.

The director claims that he was listening to M83 while writing the story for Oblivion and he hopes for something from the band, "that is both emotional, but at the same time can feel big and have a lot of space in it... very intimate but it also can feel just huge." By the sounds of it, since the film opens with Cruise's character working alone, the music will prove extra important to fill the sound space and, as always, provide the right atmosphere.

A few hours ago I published my recap of the Bourne Legacy footage shown today during the Universal Pictures presentation at CinemaCon, but that was far from the only movie that the studio had on display at the convention. Over the course of two hours they showed off footage from every single film that remains on their 2012 calendar and beyond, including outrageous comedies and Oscar-hopeful dramas. And I’m here to tell you about them.

On a journey that forces Cruise's character to re-evaluate all he holds dear, this mechanic crosses paths with an intimidating and highly skilled military technology and weapons expert called Sykes, who will be played by Coster-Waldau. It seems a no-brainer to cast the burly Coster-Waldau in the role of a military-minded strategist, as the Danish actor has drawn notice and dropped jaws as the opportunistic knight, Jamie Lannister, on HBO’s Game of Thrones

There's quite a bit of prestige behind the picture but something about the constant shake-ups and rewrites is certainly unsettling. I'm still looking forward to see what the incredible visual stylist in Kosinski has in store for his post-apocalytic wasteland but I hope this time the story is equally engaging.
