Following yesterday’s poster reveal, the first full-length trailer for director Joseph Kosinski‘s Tron: Legacy follow-up has landed. Exploring a less pristine environment than his last film, Oblivion sees the helmer on a demolished Earth, as Tom Cruise stars as a man who is gathering the last remaining vital resources from the planet.
Kicking things off on a dilapidated football stadium, I’m intrigued to see what Kosinski can do on a bigger scale here and as expected, his design elements are strong. With the help of William Monahan (The Departed, Kingdom of Heaven) and Michael Ardnt (Star Wars: Episode VII, Toy Story 3), hopefully the screenplay follows suit.
Check out the trailer below for the film featuring a score from M83 and also starring Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Melissa Leo (via Apple):
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.
Oblivion hits theaters on April 19th, with an exclusive IMAX run the week before.
