With less than a week until Oblivion is released into theaters, Universal is going all out with the promotional materials. Over the past few weeks, the studio has released a few short behind-the-scenes featurettes highlighting the various aspects of the film’s production. Now they’ve released a new 21-minute look at Oblivion, which includes new footage and more the barren, beautiful world director Joseph Kosinski has created.
Oblivion has already released internationally in Australia, France, and the U.K., to middling reviews. One thing that is getting praise, however, is Anthony Gonzalez of M83 and Joseph Trapanese’s amazing score for the film. You can currently stream for free, so go take a listen!
The 21-minute behind-the-scene look at Oblivion also features Morgan Freeman operating a Gatling gun, which is by far the coolest thing in it.
Oblivion takes place in the distant future, after a bloody war with against invading aliens. Although humanity won the war, the people of Earth were forced to leave the dying planet. The only man left on Earth is a working-class drone mechanic named Jack Harper (Tom Cruise), who is also in charge of security. Jack’s life begins to unravel when he saves the life of a beautiful woman named Julia (Olga Kurylenko), who becomes the key to Jack’s past and the truth behind the war.
Joseph Kosinski’s sci-fi film also stars Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Melissa Leo. Oblivion will hit theaters everywhere on April 19th, in IMAX. Watch Oblivion’s trailer below:
