[First Look] Tom Cruise In Joseph Kosinski’s ‘Oblivion’

Oh, so this happened at some point or another. Despite a plentiful amount of coverage that had spanned several months, yours truly had completely, totally forgotten about Oblivion, the Joseph Kosinski-directed sci-fi actioner that stars Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Andrea Riseborough, Melissa Leo, and Zoe Bell.

IMDb says the film is now in post-production — being less than a year away and all, I’d believe it — but only now have we been given our first look at Oblivion, and it comes… in the form of set photos. Anti-climactic, yes, but that’s how it often goes on these effects-heavy projects; it’s not as though you’d want a bunch of greenscreen shots, anyway.

And these pictures might stem from one of the few sections that don’t require them. Oblivion takes place in a dystopian future whereat “a surface drone repairman (Cruise) who discovers a mysterious woman (Kurylenko) in a crash-landed pod, setting off an unstoppable chain of events that will force him to question everything he knows.” As /Film has (probably correctly) guessed, this scene — filmed outside the Empire State Building with an actress I don’t recognize — would be flashbacks to a pre-collapse period. Man, Tom Cruise really looks like Tom Cruise in these shots.

You can see the rest of the photos below (via ComingSoon):

Oblivion opens on April 26th, 2013.

Is this first look sufficient enough to satiate your own interest in Kosinski’s film?
