New Oblivion Trailer Now Online


Universal has released a brand new trailer for their upcoming science fiction movie Oblivion. A lot of fans will be paying close attention to Oblivion, because one of the screenplay writers is Michael Arndt. He's the same guy that Disney tapped to write Star Wars Episode 7, so Oblivion could be a preview of his science fiction writing style for Star Wars. Here is the synopsis for Oblivion. "Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer 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. Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth.  Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack's mission is nearly complete. Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft.  Her arrival triggers a chain of events that  forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands." At the very end of the trailer, there is another short blurb describing the movie, which oddly removes the references to Earth. The description reads, "A court martial sends a veteran soldier to a distant planet, where he has to destroy the remains of an alien race. The arrival of an unexpected traveller causes him to question what he knows about the planet, his mission and himself." Oblivion is set to be released in IMAX on April 12, 2013 and in regular theaters on April 19, 2013.
