Oblivion Poster Lands
Earth is a memory worth fighting for...

07 December 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: IGN

It’s turning into a really, truly terrible week for Earth’s most famous cities, and there hasn’t been this much worldwide cine-devastation since Roland Emmerich stopped toppling landmarks. But on the heels of London getting hit in the Star Trek Into Darkness poster (and San Francisco in the trailer), comes the first official teaser image for Tom Cruise’s latest sci-fi, Oblivion, which you can see below via IGN.

This time around, it’s New York shown worn and ruined, which factors into the plot.

Oblivion, directed by Tron Legacy’s Joseph Kosinski, takes place in a world where Earth has been badly damaged by decades of war with an alien race known as the Scavs.

Most of the population lives above the planet, but Cruise’s Jack Harper is a drone repairman, stationed on the Earth to keep the robo-guardians of the place active against enemy incursion. But his mission is interrupted when he rescues a beautiful stranger (Andrea Riseborough) from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that makes him question everything he knows… (Cue dramatic musical string, which we’d guess might be an Inception-style parp of horns).

With Melissa Leo, Olga Kurylenko and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau also in the cast, Oblivion is set to hit our screens on April 12 next year.

I agree whole heartedly - the very mention of Cruise being in it just ruined it all. I've given him plenty of chances but he blows it every time. Please don't mention War of the Worlds. More
