While the debut teaser teased the post-apocalyptic world that director Joseph Kosinski has created for his follow-up to Tron: Legacy, we’ve now got new full-length trailer for Oblivion that opens up more of the story. Set on a demolished Earth, we follow Tom Cruise as a real-life Wall-E who is gathering the last remaining vital resources from the planet.
This new looks introduces some of his romantic past that is still haunting him, as well as what looks to be his company abandoning him. The visuals continue to look top-notch, so lets hope the story follows through. With a script form William Monahan (The Departed, Kingdom of Heaven) and Michael Ardnt (Star Wars: Episode VII, Toy Story 3), 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.
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.
