First Trailer and Poster for Tom Cruise’s ‘Oblivion’ Recall ‘WALL-E’ and Countless Other Sci-Fi Movies
After avoiding science-fiction cinemas for the bulk of his career, Tom Cruise seems to making a habit of making genre films. There’s ‘All You Need is Kill’, ‘Our Name is Adam’ (which Cruise is circling), but first we have Oblivion, for which a poster and trailer have arrived online. It sees Cruise play a very WALL-E-esque drone repairman working on an abandoned Earth that was devastated by an alien invasion. There are also flavors of films like ‘I Am Legend’, ‘Twelve Monkeys’ and ‘Terminator Salvation thrown into the mix.
Directed by Joseph Kosinski (‘Tron Legacy’) and co-starring Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Melissa Leo, the film hits cinemas on April 19, 2013.
