Andrea Riseborough and Olga Kurylenko Talk OBLIVION, Practical Sets, Filming in Iceland, and More

     April 19, 2013


Joeseph Kosinski‘s new Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman starrer Oblivion is the rarest of all things, a big budget scifi film aimed squarely at adults.  While the trailers might seem like they give away the whole movie, I assure you they only scratch the surface. Things get really weird and far more ambitious than the I Am Legend-style one sheet implies.

Last week, Collide sat down with Olga Kurylenko and Andrea Riseborough to discuss their surprising and twist-filled roles.  During the interview they talked about shooting in Iceland, wanting to switch parts, the massive and elaborate sets and much more.

Andrea Riseborough and Olga Kurylenko:

  • One of them is always on the platform and one is on the ground.  Did they ever want to switch roles?
  • How much did their shooting schedules overlap?  Were they both in Iceland?
  • They talk about how they shot in Iceland and everything was built (practical)
  • Deleted dialogue talk.  They also talk about the script.
  • How much of the drones in the film were built and how much was CG
  • How they shot 98% of the film without green screen

    It is whithout doubt the best film I’ve seen so far this year.

    Admittedly it’s not going to win any awards for originality (albeit the twist) but for what it was, I found it a lot of fun and I can’t wait to grab a copy on bluray.
