First Trailer for Oblivion

After an international trailer suddenly appeared online, Universal Pictures have now released the first official trailer for their upcoming sci-fi blockbuster Oblivion.

From Tron: Legacy director, Joseph Kosinski, the film stars Tom Cruise as Jack Harper, a drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Half the planet has been destroyed due to a war and the population has been evacuated. Jack’s job is to essentially clean up and extract vital resources. But one day a mysterious woman in pod crash-lands, triggering a chain of events.

With its futuristic setting, desolate locations and a hint of mystery, the film looks like a heady mix of Solaris, Wall-E and I Am Legend. Interestingly Oblivion is based on Kosinski’s own graphic novel, which was initially set to be published by Radical Studios in 2011 only to be abandoned. It now looks like it’s set to be released after all to tie in with the release of the film.
