Oblivion [12a]

It’s 2073, and Earth has been devastated by the Scavs, a race of brutal aliens.

Oblivion [12a]

One of the few remaining drone repairmen, ex-Commander Jack Harper (a steely Cruise), discovers a crashed spacecraft. Amazingly, a young woman (Kurylenko, QUANTUM OF SOLACE, TO THE WONDER) has survived the impact, but she brings with her some secrets that oblige Harper to reassess everything he believed about the planetary war and his role in it – and his doubts are further deepened after his capture by a wily old resistance leader (Freeman).

OBLIVION is based on director/co-writer Kosinski’s own graphic novel, and unsurprisingly he brings maximum authenticity to the proceedings; while the cast, which includes busy British actress Riseborough (SHADOW DANCER, WELCOME TO THE PUNCH), recreates the sense of awe Kosinski so effectively evoked with his visually stunning TRON: LEGACY
