Oblivion: shiny new concept art
Director Joseph Kosinski's forthcoming Tom Cruise-starring sci-fi movie Oblivion gets some new concept art, which you can see within...
At the moment, Joseph Kosinski's probably best known as the director behind the pretty yet narratively thin Tron: Legacy. It's just possible, though, that Oblivion could marry a great story with Kosinski's obvious flair for spectacular-looking sci-fi. Starring Tom Cruise and Olga Kurylenko (Quantum Of Solace), it's about a veteran soldier battling aliens on a distant planet, only to have the entire nature of his mission thrown into question by the arrival of a mysterious stranger.
The cast is rounded out by Morgan Freeman, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (who put in a performance of Terminator-like ferocity in this year's fabulous Headhunters), Melissa Leo and Zoe Bell. As for the film's visual style, the concept art below gives us some idea of what to expect - one or two pieces have been floating around on the web for some time, if memory serves, but most appear to be new. The images give us a glimpse into an expansive future world of greys and browns, and we're intrigued to see how these expansive shots will look on the big screen.
It's thought we'll see the first trailer for Oblivion in front of The Hobbit later this month, which means we'll enjoy some footage from both Kosinski's film and Guillermo del Toro's own sci-fi epic, Pacific Rim.
When that first Oblivion trailer appears online, we'll be sure to share it with you as soon as we can.
