I think I can guess the twist:

From the trailer I saw in theater yesterday, I never got the impression there were supposed to be any sentient aliens.

^ Isn't the plot "supposed" to be that the reason the world looks like this is because of an alien invasion?

Yeah, Tom Cruise says it right in the narration in the trailer, or at least in the new one that just came out the other day. They also show him being attacked by what appears to be an alien.
The trailer.

I think the movie looks cool. Not a big Cruise fan but he is in some decent Sci-Fi movies.

Morgan Freeman is awesome, but Tom Cruise is a serious chode. The only good role he ever had was in Magnolia, he played himself: an asshole. And the creepy scientology doesn't help him either.

behind the scenes video & new footage

behind the scenes video which features Cruise and director Joseph Kosinski as they talk about the plot and setting of the film amidst some great new footage.

New ‘Oblivion’ Featurette Goes Behind The Film’s Intriguing Plot (video also here)

wow this looks great. I actually have excitement for this like I did for Prometheus last year. I only have to wait about a month. A real science-based scifi film set in the future on Earth.

Re: behind the scenes video & new footage

I read the synopsis of the film and practically fell over laughing when I saw the Cruise is trying to play a 37 year old. For the record, Cruise turns 51, this July.

n 2073, a 37 year-old former-Marine Commander Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed at Earth

I guess I never understood why people hate Tom Crusie. I like him. I like many of the movies he is in.

I think the hatred toward him doesn't have much to do with his acting.

I don't like him at all, I shudder to think what goes on inside his head.

I do like quite a few of his films though, Rain Man and Collateral being my two favourite, really fantastic performance from him in both films. I don't know how people can say he isn't a talented actor. He does rely on his "suddenly exploding into crazy eyed nutter" routine too much, but when he breaks out of that, he can be great.

This movie looks pretty cool, too.

I can't even remember the last Tom Cruise movie I saw, apart from the IMAX movie about the International Space Station (he was the narrator).

Me too. He might be a weird person, but he does good movies, and this looks like it will be one of them.
