Universal Pictures has debuted the first teaser trailer and poster for Oblivion, the upcoming Tom Cruise sci-fi action vehicle written and directed by Tron: Legacy‘s Joseph Kosinski.
Cruise plays Jack Harper, a guy who repairs drones on Earth decades years after much of the planet was destroyed. A history buff, Harper knows plenty about Earth history and enjoys artifacts from a bygone age which makes him the perfect person to be approached by Morgan Freeman, the leader of a group of humans secretly living on the planet.
Kosinski wrote a treatment for Oblivion, which was also known as Horizons for a time, in 2007. He showed it to the people at Radical Publishing, who liked the idea, but the release of the actual graphic novel is being held off until closer to the film’s release.
Zoe Bell, Melissa Leo and Olga Kurylenko also star in the high concept sci-fi story which opens on April 19, 2013.
