There are only a few more days until we get to see if Oblivion matches up to our expectations, and then we can move from Tom Cruise to Will Smith in the category of “1990s box office champions whose films haven’t amazed audiences and critics in quite some time.” And it’s an M. Night Shyamalan film, so 2013 is going to be an exercise in both patience and anger management.
I’m not even sure if there’s anything different going on in the above clip than what was already seen in the other trailer. It gives us the admittedly shocking opening moment where Will Smith gets ripped away from the vehicle they’re traveling in. It shows off the ship/plane’s damage and a fearful Jaden Smith. It spends a few seconds on Kitai (Jaden Smith) and General Cypher (Will Smith) flying around like they bought “Bat-Man” suitsfrom the Acme corporation. And then, of course, we get a look at what a thousand years has done to a war-ravaged Earth and its creatures.
