Watch The Oblivion Trailer Featuring Commentary Track From Director Joseph Kosinski
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. Because nobody has actually seen a finished product yet, a director could use the opportunity to provide back story on elements that otherwise wouldn't be explained or would only be subtly hinted at in the full feature. Joseph Kosinski has had a chance to do just that with the first trailer for Oblivion that premiered this month.
Posted on IGN, it should be noted that the video is about 12 and a half minutes long (they stop and rewind the trailer a lot while the filmmaker talks) so buckle in. Check out the trailer below!
Oblivion stars Tom Cruise as Jack Harper, a man living in a distant future on an Earth that has been decimated in a war against extraterrestrial forces. It is Jack's job to fix and replace broken drones on the planet's surface so help ward off future alien attack, but when he makes a startling discovery he realizes that the entire world he knows could be a lie. Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Zoe Bell, Andrea Riseborough, Melissa Leo, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau co-star in the film, which will be released by Universal Pictures on April 19, 2013.
