Oblivion in theatres April 19

Universal Pictures releases this science fiction film starring Tom Cruise. Joseph Kosinski (TRON: LEGACY) directed from a script co-written with Karl Gajdusek and Michael Arndt, based on the comic book by Kosinski and Arvid Nelson. Morgan Freeman co-stars, along with Zoe Bell, Olga Kurylenko, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Andrea Riseborough, and Melissa Leo. Cruise stars as a repairman fixing drones on a future Earth depopulated by war (vaguely reminiscent of WALL-E?). The plot kicks into gear when he rescues a woman in a crashed space ship, which leads to a confrontation with forces that lead him to doubt his assumptions about the war.

U.S. Theatrical Release: April 19, 2013
