Tom Cruise shows off sci-fi side in ‘Oblivion’ trailer

- December 10th, 2012

OBLIVION-POSTER

Ever wanted to see Tom Cruise in a WALL-E-type role? Well, here’s your chance. Universal has released the first trailer for Oblivion, the first of Cruise’s upcoming sci-fi double-header (he’s also starring in All You Need Is Kill in 2014).

In the film, which is being directed by Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy), Cruise is on clean up duty after humans and aliens go one-on-one.

“Sixty years ago, Earth was attacked,” Cruise says. “We won the war, but they destroyed half the planet. Everyone’s been evacuated, nothing human remains.”

So, a Yankees-cap wearing Cruise is back on abandoned Earth along with Olga Kurylenko to fix up some derelict space crafts.

Like Cruise said, there’s supposed to be nothing human left, but a cigar-smoking Morgan Freeman is around to let us know that there might be more than meets the eye kicking around the planet.

Oblivion hits theaters April 26, 2013. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think in the comments.

    Cruise is back. I haven’t been excited about a non-Mission: Impossible Cruise film since War of the Worlds in 2005. This one looks cool. I hope the regrettably named “All You Need Is Kill” also rocks.

    Hmmmm… I think this one could go either way.
    The premise and effects look good, but I hope the story doesn’t fall flat.
    I’ll keep my fingers crossed but I won’t hold my breath.
