    I was born 87 years ago and these are the final hours of my life....oh wait....Tom Cruise and no Patrick Stewart?

    Uninterested.

    Trailer

    I think it looks pretty cool. I like Tom Cruise and he usually seems to pick good sci-fi scripts.

    Looks interesting and actually "sci-fi"-y which is cool. Morgan Freeman looks awesome too.

    Well that looked interesting - despite the prominence of Cruise. Also interesting is how the trailer is very different than the original synopsis.

    Kind of a sleeper, I haven't heard anything about this just happened to see an ad on youtube and clicked.

    Cool visuals, but how did the aliens bury skyscrapers in cliffs? And why?

    I suspect this may be the kind of movie that never bothers to answer such questions. They're buried in cliffs because it looks cool in a poster/trailer/etc.

    Also, April release date? Eh, it's gonna get lost, that's too soon for the summer action movie crowds to be playing attention.

    Sounds kind of like a live-action Wall*E.

    Yeah I had the same thought, especially if the Big SecretTM turns out to be that there were no aliens and humans were responsible for the carnage/irradiation/skyscrapers in cliffs etc.

    That certainly seems possible, given the trailer.

    That actually looks pretty cool. Hadn't heard anything about it til I watched the trailer just now. And Morgan Freeman looks even more badass than he usually does!

    So is this planet Earth or not? There seem to be conflicting synopses here. :confused:

    This movie is already a huge success due to the amazing presence of Tom Cruise.

    Maybe, but can't think of many other blockbusters I'll be seeing in 2013 (besides Into Darkness and Hobbit 2). This actually looks good enough to go on the maybe pile along with Elysium.

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

    The impression I got from the trailer is that it's Earth.
