Just this morning we posted the first poster for Oblivion and said we’d heard that the first trailer was due on Sunday. However the promo has slipped out early, or at least a Spanish subtitled version has, which you can see right here.
In the movie the Earth is a ruined shell, with nearly all of the human population now living off the surface. Cruise plays a man who services the drones that ensure humanity can still get the natural resources it craves. However as we discover, some strange things are going on, including Morgan Freeman kidnapping him, some strange beasts and people in pods plummeting to earth. As he tries to figure out what’s happening, he becomes a target himself.
It all looks pretty stylish and the visuals are certainly impressive, with what seems like a well conceived look at a world that’s been trashed so much people can barely survive on the surface any more. Joseph Kosinski’s film hits cinemas next April.
