Oblivion Gets A UK Premiere
Cruise and Kurylenko stroll the carpet
A lone soul traversing a weather-beaten planet to keep the flame of hope flickering for humanity... no, not the plot of Oblivion but the publicity tour for Tom Cruise's latest sci-fi behemoth. After Dublin and Moscow, London was the port-of-call for the actor, his co-star OIga Kurylenko and director Joseph Kosinski as they spread the word about their post-apocalyptic extravaganza.
The pair braved suitably apocalyptic windchill at the BFI IMAX to meet fans and tell journos what to expect when the movie hits the big screen next week.
Oblivion finds Cruise as Jack Harper, a drone repairman working on a war-ravaged, post-apocalyptic Earth. After years of conflict with a terrifying alien race known as the Scavs, humanity has triumphed, but at a terrible cost to our planet.
Oblivion hits cinemas on April 10. Wrap your ears around its M83-produced score in the meantime.
