A new trailer for Oblivion starring Tom Cruise was just released.  Directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron Legacy), Oblivion takes place on Earth 60 years after the planet was destroyed by an alien force.  Cruise works as a drone repairman, who discovers a crashed pod, and holds humanity’s future in his hand by examining the truth of it’s past.  In addition to the new trailer we also got a look at the Spanish poster for the film.  Oblivion also stars Olga Kurylenko, Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough, and Melissa Leo.  Oblivion opens April 19th.


Official synopsis 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.



I really liked the pacing and tone of this trailer over the disconnected original trailer that I felt was all over the place.   This trailer clarified the premise and cemented it as a film I want to see.
