In a few short weeks, Joseph Kosinski’s follow-up to Tron: Legacy will hit theaters everywhere. Oblivion will be one of the first science fiction films to hit in a year full of them (including Star Trek Into Darkness, Pacific Rim, and After Earth). To help build anticipation for the post-apocalyptic movie, Universal has sent out a new TV spot featuring “the last man” on Earth.
Kosinski’s new sci-fi movie seems pretty thrilling and exciting! Universal also released a new featurette showing off Jack Harper’s (Tom Cruise) BubbleShip. One of the iconic images from Oblivion’s first teaser trailer was the magnificent BubbleShip. It seemed to float in the air, but it can also maneuver in tight and tough situations. They actually built the full BubbleShip, which was showcased at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival (although they didn’t screen the movie). Watch the BubbleShip featurette below:
Oblivion is set in the distant future, when all of humanity has been forced to leave Earth after a bloody war against alien invaders. Tom Cruise plays a drone mechanic named Jack Harper who is the only human stationed on the abandoned Earth. When Jack rescues a beautiful and mysterious woman named Julia (Olga Kurylenko) after a hideous crash landing, his world comes unraveled as he is confronted with the truth behind the war.
Oblivion will also feature Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Melissa Leo, and Zoë Bell. Joseph Kosinski wrote the screenplay with screenwriters William Monahan (The Departed) and Michael Arndt (Star Wars: Episode VII, Toy Story 3).
Oblivion will hit IMAX theaters on April 12th, and everywhere else on April 19th.
