Universal have brought forward its release date for Joseph Kosinski’s sci-fi epic Oblivion to April 23rd 2013.
The director of Tron: Legacy will direct stars Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones).
IMDb summarizes it as follows: “A court martial sends a veteran soldier to a distant planet, where he is to destroy the remains of an alien race. The arrival of an unexpected traveler causes him to question what he knows about the planet, his mission, and himself.
Elsewhere, it’s described on slashfilm.com as follows: “a soldier stationed on Earth, the surface of which has been destroyed by aliens. When he discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off a chain of events that cause him to question everything.”
Whichever version of events is correct at this stage it doesnt really matter, either way it sounds like an intriguing project. Will keep you posted.
