The first poster for director Joseph Kosinski’s (TRON: Legacy) upcoming sci-fi film Oblivion has landed online, and it’s very, very pretty. Tom Cruise stars as one of the last remaining drone repairman stationed on a future Earth.  He works as part of a mission to extract vital resources from the ground following a decades-long war with a threat known as the Scavs, which lead to humans moving civilization to the skies thousands of feet above.  When Cruise’s character rescues a beautiful stranger (Andrea Riseborough) from a downed spacecraft, events are set in motion that force him to “question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.”  This poster definitely teases an epic scope and a beautifully cinematic landscape, and given Kosinski’s incredible visual work on TRON: Legacy it’s safe to assume we’re in for one gorgeous-looking sci-fi film.

Hit the jump to take a look at the poster, and check back here on Sunday to watch the first trailer.  The film also stars Nikolaj Coster-WaldauOlga KurylenkoMelissa Leo, and Morgan Freeman.  Oblivion opens exclusively in IMAX on April 12, 2013, followed by its traditional release on April 19th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Oblivion:

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.

Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth.  Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.

Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his 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.

Oblivion was shot in stunning digital 4K resolution on location across the United States and Iceland.

      No, because the Star Trek poster is making the insignia out of the rubble.

        It’s similar in the sense that it features one of the major caracters in a teaser form, positioned with his back against the viewer and with a vast landscape making the main character appear small and emphasizing on the scope of the film.

    It’s similar in the sense that it features one of the major caracters in a teaser form, positioned with his back against the viewer so you can’t see who it is or how they look, and with a vast landscape making the main character appear small to emphase on the scope of the film.
