Universal's new trailer for the long teased post apocalyptic flick Oblivion is finally out, directed by John Kosinski, who directed Tron: Legacy. The 2013 flick stars Tom Cruise as John Harper, a veteran soldier sent to a distant planet to destroy the remains of an alien civilization that once threatened to annihilate earth, before some revelations cause him to question everything about his mission.
The trailer looks pretty decent, with my only gripe being that this version of the future looks like it was designed by Apple with the white on white, sterile and streamlined look of everything. We already saw this visual language with the advanced races in the Wachowski's recently released Cloud Atlas. Personal preference here, but I wish they'd done something a little different. Other than that, a scifi flick to look forward to in 2013.
