Oblivion Teaser Poster

Finally! After years of waiting, months of complaining, Universal has debuted (via ComingSoon) the first official piece of marketing artwork for Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski's new sci-fi Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise. This film is set in the far future on a desolate Earth, where most people now live in a floating city. Cruise plays a "drone repairmen" whose life changes when he comes across a crashed spacecraft. There is a trailer for Oblivion playing with The Hobbit, so we expect this is a hint we'll see that soon, too. For now this isn't much, just an epic tease, and a look at Cruise and vehicle. Earth is a Memory Worth Fighting For.

Here's the first teaser poster for Joe Kosinski's Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise. Watch the first trailer here!

Oblivion Teaser Poster

Kosinski's Oblivion (also known as Horizons) stars Tom Cruise as Jack Harper, plus Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, Zoe Bell, Andrea Riseborough, Melissa Leo and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Living and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, Jack's 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. Kosinski developed this for years, with a writing credit with Karl Gajdusek and Michael Arndt. Universal has Oblivion set to open exclusively in IMAX theaters starting April 12th, before then going wide April 19th.

    I have zero faith in this director. Tron was terrible.
    • Tron was phenomenal and exactly what I wanted and expected. The score was perfect, the effects were beautiful and seamless, and Hedlund knocked it out of the park when it came to good chemistry with his father. I can't wait to see what Kosinski does with his career and this poster gives me even more faith in him.

      When you think about it, Tron was a pretty good and ambitious debut movie, I loved the sci-fi vibe in Tron
    • drcherd
      The script was weak
    • Cody W
      Felt a bit anticlimactic and brief but in no way was it terrible IMO.
  • dumbass
    Is this even possible from a geology point of view? I mean buildings becoming part of rock like that? Wouldn't they be completely unrecognisable by that point?The features of buildings gone?
    • cg
      Really because the coliseum in rome is unrecognizable along with the pyramids in egypt, the mesoamerican pyramids in mexico, the ziggurats in mesopotamia etc....
      • dumbass
        True,but those are remains,ruins and not part of actual rocks .Here we have buildings as part of the mountain. Can somebody who knows this stuff answer and not some wise-ass who thinks things are always "duh obvious" ?

          Well if you want to take it there, here is the thing, its a movie.. A science fiction movie at that, things are made up, the designers can choose to base a concept in reality or take it into fiction. Hence "science fiction"... dumbass <--- not you.. but.. your s/n which speaks loads about you
          • dumbass
            I find it amusing how people tend to forget the science part in "science fiction".It's not just fantasy.Good science fiction is rooted in science.It's not just lasers and spaceships and wacky concepts. And I wasn't commenting the movie.It sounds like an interesting idea.My question was how much science is there really in this image,the poster . Also,you are assume too much.
          • dumbass
            "Also,you assume too much." Skip the "are".It's an editing mistake.
          • TommyTrucker
            Spot on. I bet the guy who thinks differently is a creationist or something.
        • Wafffles
          No its not realistically possible, but it looks pretty cool so some artistic liberty was taken. I doubt its actually in the movie, much like the batman logo in the crumbling buildings from TDK posters.
    • beevis
      maybe i'm wrong - but, if you look close, i kind of thought it looks like some kind of vine?plant cover.....NOT rock.
    • If you look at the ground at the bottom of the poster it looks like pulverized lava rock. There could have been some kind of world wide volcanic explosions. The rocky like matter could be volcanic ash that has been built up for dozens of decades do to many volcanic activities and hardened over time. Mr. Volcanist, please correct me if I'm wrong.
  • max
    nice poster. no sparks and debris. impressive.
  • I dig this! Like the dusty look to it, the look of the suit and the ship. Think for the buildings coming out the rocks it's only a concept drawing, but I love the overall feel.

  • David Banner
    Wheee! More Sci-Fi :)
    Tron 3 Already here?!
  • beevis
    cool poster. hey! just how many trailers ARE appearing in front of hobbit? isn't superman trailer coming too?
  • RidgeRacer4
    This design is missing the "weapon in hand" and "sparks" soooo, points for poster originality? Huzzah:P Very Prometheus inspired and grand but just a tad dull...still for a teaser, I totally dig it!
  • dom
    Wow lovely poster so excited for this!
  • Michael James
    TRON Legacy was a boring mess. It looked like some sort of bad fetish video. I have low expectations for this movie. Here's to hoping they dump Kosinski and hire a new director for TRON 3.
  • si1ver
    Looks gorgeous. I didn't care about this at first but now I'm hoping this turns out well. (not that I wasn't before but now I'm a tiny bit invested)
  • OC
    Uhh, Kosinski to Star Wars? Why didn't we think of this before??? Looks like Michael Arndt even helped write this screenplay. And we already know Kosinski has a good relationship with Disney after Tron. Also, he's David Fincher's protegé. So it's easy to see Fincher recommending him for the job if he doesn't want to take it himself.
