Watch The First OBLIVION Trailer
Hyperbole? I don't really think so. Despite turning Disney a profit, the studio was unenthused about how that film turned out enough that they passed on this one despite having first crack at it, so the sheen is already off Kosinski in terms of any sort of wunderkind status. That Universal picked Oblivion up in Disney's stead is no great surprise as Kosinski is a money maker, after all, but if this one stumbles you can expect to see reductions in budget and freedom on future projects.
The first trailer for Oblivion has arrived and, frankly, I'm not really feeling it. It's not really clicking as spectacle - the visuals offering little that a good video game doesn't - and the ideas seem rather re-heated thus far. Take a look below and tell us what you think.Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. 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.
