Two Gritty New 'Oblivion' Posters with Tom Cruise & Morgan Freeman
"It's a sci-fi adventure that spans two different worlds and two different times." Universal has revealed two brand new posters on EW.com for Joseph Kosinski's sci-fi Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise as Jack Harper. We've seen one teaser poster, but these two banners are more about the marketing push. The first features both Morgan Freeman and Cruise back-to-back, and nothing in the background except white. The second actually has a futuristic background, but only Cruise casually walking very small in the center. I still want to see more from this, but maybe it's for the better they're holding back. We'll see. Take a look at the art below.
Up first the new Oblivion combo poster with a one-two Cruise-Freeman punch, posted in full on EW.com:
Here's the second Oblivion banner they debuted, showing Cruise walking along a dilapidated old bridge:
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.

Am I the only one who thinks Freeman plays the same character always? I mean, I really used to love him, but he's getting on my nerves. I don't believe these two actor are the right choices for the roles.

Freeman has literally never played this character before and I see no resemblance to Driving Ms. Daisy, March of the Penguins, Through the Wormhole, Wanted, Batman, Evan Almighty, or Invictus. Come to think of it, dude's got range.

I hope this has a better script than Tron: Legacy, which looked and sounded amazing, but lacked a strong story and screenplay.
