Oblivion

The last featurette for the sci-fi release Oblivion showed us some pretty spectacular footage, and the most recent TV spots highlighted the destruction of the moon. Now IMAX has released a cool featurette that focuses on the film hitting the big, big screen, and while it wasn't shot on IMAX film stock, director Joseph Kosinski explains that while he shot for widescreen, he made sure to safely keep in mind the fuller frame so that it would play bigger on IMAX screens. You can see some examples of the difference in the featurette, and there are some stunning landscapes and cool shots that will look great in that giant theater. Watch it!

Here's the IMAX featurette for Joseph Kosinski's Oblivion from IMAX:

Joseph 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 has developed this for years, and wrote it with William Monahan. Universal Pictures currently has Oblivion scheduled to open in IMAX and theaters everywhere April 19th.

It looks OK. But I still think Morgan Freeman is miscast for some reason.

Laurence Fishburne seems more fit for the part.

The effects look great. I'm sure glad the director didn't use Digital Domain for this film.
