I say this time and time again; I am a huge fan of Tom Cruise.  I don’t care what anyone says, the man makes good movies.  We’ve been hearing about about Oblivion from the time it was being referred to as Horizons.  We got a first look at the film when the poster hit the web.  Now we get to see the film in motion with this spectacular trailer that evokes a lot of questions that could provide some intriguing answers.  This could could be sci-fi’s second chance after Prometheus.  Let’s hope that whatever questions this film rises, has a more satisfactory answer for a more enjoyable movie going experience.

The film also stars Morgan Freeman, Olga KurylenkoAndrea RiseboroughNikolaj Coster-Waldauand 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.
