Universal has released the first trailer for Joseph Kosinski’s (Tron Legacy) science-fiction film Oblivion. Tom Cruise stars as a lone soldier who lives in the clouds above a post-apocalyptic Earth after a war made the surface uninhabitable. He works diligently to repair drones that seek out and destroy hostile aliens that have all but wiped out humanity. When he encounters a crashed space pod with a mysterious woman survivor (Olga Kurylenko), she makes him question everything he knows.
The trailer features some truly stunning visuals and this seems like an interesting sci-fi concept to base a film on. However, I feel this is a badly put together preview that’s too vague and confusing and doesn’t clearly lay down what the movie is about.

Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.
