Here we have the first trailer for the new Tom Cruise film, Oblivion. Directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy), this appears to be a science fiction apocalypse film. The official synopsis reads as such:
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.

I think this looks interesting, but am not completely sold on it yet. While I like Tom Cruise, there really is nothing in this trailer that gives me the willies and makes me want to rush out to see it. Hopefully, the next trailer released will get my willies flowing. The synopsis is really good, so hopefully it will be awesome. What do you think?
Now, the poster, that I like a lot. Whereas I feel the trailer falters a little bit, the poster is epic. So I am really torn on this film so far. We are still some months out from release, though, so they have plenty of time getting me psyched up for this.
Oblivion opens April 12, 2013 exclusively in Imax theaters. It then expands to wide release on April 19, 2013.
