Trailer for Oblivion starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman

Universal has released a great first trailer for Oblivion, the upcoming sci-fi movie starring Tom Cruise and directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy).

2013 is looking to be a great year for sci-fi movies, and hopefully this film adds to that. There are some impressive tech designs and landscape shots, and it actually looks like there’s an intriguing story underneath all the explosions.

Watch the trailer below:

Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.

Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.

Oblivion will be released April 19, 2013 and co-stars Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Melissa Leo.
