Haven't watched the trailer yet. Just saw Morgan Freeman + sci-fi and said "I'm in"

So is this planet Earth or not? There seem to be conflicting synopses here.
The impression I got from the trailer is that it's Earth.

He should be doing Rama! This looks pretty good though, A for the trailer!

Cool visuals, but how did the aliens bury skyscrapers in cliffs? And why?
Lord Xenu, the dictator of the Galactic Confederacy, brought billions of his people to Earth in a DC-8-like spacecraft, stacked them around volcanoes and killed them using hydrogen bombs. The skyscrapers were submerged in ash from the exploding volcanoes and nuclear firestorms.


The movie looks like it has potential, with an interesting central mystery and setting, cool visuals and action, and the presence of Cruise and Freeman (who generally pick good projects and give good performances).

^ Maybe in the sequel crossover Tom Cruise and Will Smith can reunite what's left of Earth and take on Terl reprised by John Travolta.

He may be too old for Rama. By about a decade. Well, not as far as I'm concerned since who can say how old astronauts might be in the early 22nd century? But as far as early 21st century Hollywood goes...

Anyway, Clarke's book is too damn cerebral for brain dead America today. It'd make a classic film in the right hands such as a latter day Kubrick. In fact, it could be better than 2001. Alas.

This looks pretty mediocre. Gonna be a wait and see film for me. I've seen nothing here that says this is anything more than generic sci-fi action flick 1128.

I never heard of this until the other day. I do like Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman is just about my favorite actor of all time. The trailer looks pretty cool as does the story line. So I am in!

The man has been trying to get that project off the ground for more than a decade now, but the studios aren't interested. And, despite Freeman's passion, he can't just snap his fingers and get a greenlight. Few people in Hollywood are in the position to do that.

Looks pretty cool. I'm a big fan of a lot of the cast members, along with Cruise and Freeman who I would say are two of my favorite actors, it's also got Olga Kurlyenko, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lanister in Game of Thrones).

Re: Oblivion (2013) rumors, news, photos until release

Now a longer international UK trailer
http://movies.uk.msn.com/trailers-an...sharepermalink

"There's a good amount of spectacle on display in this international trailer from MSN UK, with more expansive visuals of the desolate Earth years after an attempted alien invasion. The basics of the story, with Cruise as terrestrial drone repair soldier and the rest of humanity in orbit, also get some attention. But this trailer is focused on the mystery at the center of the story, and gives a better sense of just what form the film's conflict takes. Also, we get out first real look at Melissa Leo in her physically detached role."

It is a 2:25 length trailer. It gives a bunch away. I wish it were only 45 seconds i would still go see it. I will still see it. Looks like a real scifi film.
