Tom Cruise has a couple of high concept sci-fi films hitting theaters next years, one of which is Oblivion.  The upcoming film is directed by Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski, who also created the graphic novel upon which the film is based.  The official poster for the film has made its way online.

Despite what people think of Cruise’s personal life, I think he has a knack for choosing excellent projects.  A trailer for this film will debut on Apple iTunes Trailers this Sunday. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us when this movie hits theaters.

The film also stars Morgan Freeman, Olga KurylenkoAndrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Melissa Leo.  Oblivion opens exclusively in IMAX on April 12 and then in wide release April 19, 2013

Here’s the official plot synopsis:

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 was shot in stunning digital 4K resolution on location across the United States and Iceland.
