Cruise lands in Oblivion trailer
While Tom Cruise has been filming All You Need is Kill and promoting Jack Reacher at the premiere in London the trailer for his new film Oblivion was being prepared for release, a trailer that has now been released and gives us our first glimpse of the story and the world that the story will inhabit, and it looks fantastic.
There are a number of influences from other films you can see in the trailer but what comes through is the fact that this looks like a damn good film with a really interesting story delivering an excellent twist.
That's probably a good point to say that this trailer could deliver parts of the story that you don't want to see, they don't particularly look like spoilers but if you are one of the people whose brains start going and can spot where plots are going to go then this might just start you off, I know it has mine.
Saying that though it doesn't play out quite as I thought and while it lays the ground for a potential big twist that will shake the world of the leading character, and perhaps do so a number of times. However it doesn't seem to go the way I'd have expected and I'm feeling that there's much more mystery to it and a fair amount being kept back.
Looking at the trailer it seems as though the team of writers, including William Monahan, have come up with a story that has a lot of potential and with Joseph Kosinski directing the bonus is it looks fantastic too.
Then there's the cast, Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough, and more. I am getting rather excited for it and after you've seen the trailer you will do too, just what is going on with Earth?
Here's the plot 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.
