Universal Moves Sci-Fi Film OBLIVION Starring Tom Cruise Up to April 26, 2013

     March 15, 2012


Director Joseph Kosinski’s (Tron: Legacy) sci-fi pic Oblivion will be arriving a few months earlier next year. Deadline reports that Universal has shifted the Tom Cruise-fronted Oblivion up to April 26th, 2013 from a previous release date of July 10th. There are currently no other film slated for that April weekend, but The Evil Dead remake opens a couple weeks earlier. No reason is given for the release date shift, but another Cruise film, One Shot, was recently moved up from early 2013 to December of this year.

In Oblivion, Cruise plays a veteran soldier who’s banished to the surface of a post-apocalyptic Earth and tasked with repairing ships that hunt down the aliens who destroyed our planet. When a mysterious woman (Andrea Riseborough) crash-lands nearby, their encounter sets off an eye-opening chain of events. The cast also includes Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko and Game of ThronesNikolaj Coster-Waldau. Production on the film just began in Louisiana.

    I don’t get why everyone thinks Tom Cruise is such a great actor … he just plays his egotistical self in all his movies much like Will Smith.

    Because he’s the most intense person on the face of the planet and brings it every single Tom Cruisin time. I used his name as an adjective because that’s how awesome he is. Really, shouldn’t we be asking questions about Taylor Lautner and Jessica Alba rather than the guy who pulled of Les Grossman?

      you got that right! Tom Cruise is the best and my favorite actor. ozzie thinks hollywood is willing to go downhill financially even more by stop casting jewels like Tom Cruise and Will Smith.

    Looks like a great movie otherwise ruined by Tom. There are loads of people who hate Tom cause they think his an egotistical scientologistical BIG NOB, and that cringe factor is a big distraction to what could otherwise would be a great movie. Love scifi, not enough good ones being released but I refuse to pay to watch this one.
