TUESDAY TRAILERS: OBLIVION

I dig sci-fi films.  They make me happy and for some reason I enjoy Tom Cruise films, because crazy or not he makes entertaining films.  When I first saw this trailer it was after I had just watched the Devil's Whore which has Andrea Riseborough in it as well (its a 3 part BBC series which shows the English Civil War through the eyes of her character...also has a great cast like Michael Fassbender and John Simm in it as well) and I was very excited to see her in something else (more recently she was in W.E.).  More than that I was 'whoo hoo sci-fi' because I have missed me some science fiction films.  Looks entertaining.  And I did enjoy Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  What do you think?

Synopsis: 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.

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.
