Yes! I love that dude. Did anyone here see Blackthorn? He plays the younger version of San Shepherd's Butch Cassidy. Total departure from his Game of Thrones character. Awesome addition.

I'm curious on one thing...and it will make or break the movie....and that is if the director understands and appreciates the lore or if it's "just a cool video game"

I'm not sure what you mean, this is not based on a videogame.

It's not an Elder Scrolls movie.

Didn't know he was in that but he's real good in Headhunters, one of the good films that Norway puts out lately.

I prefer the title 'Horizons' but that's just me. I agree that Oblivion sub-conensusly makes me think of 'Elder Scrolls'.

Entertainment Weekly broke down the footage shown at CinemaCon
Quote:
The footage opens on a perfectly blue sky, and a series of glass and white steel platforms floating among the clouds. Picture The Jetsons by way of modernist architect Mies van der Rohe.

A small vehicle is perched on one of the platforms. It’s a kind of cross between a helicopter and a private plane. Inside is Cruise’s character: “This is Commander Jak Harper. Pre-routing electrical guidance and nav systems, all go.”
“Copy that, are you ready to go?” a computerized female voice asks.

Cruise’s character has a cocky look on his face. He’s done this a lot. “Oh, I’m ready to go.”
The copter-plane lifts off of the platform, but instead of rising, it plunges down through the clouds. Soon we see Cruise’s character gliding through a hole chopped into the roof of an old municipal building, what looks to be an early 20th century library, with lots of stone and wood and dusty chandeliers hanging in stark shafts of light.
Cruise is armed, and prowls through the library with his rifle drawn. We don’t know what it is he’s looking for, but he’s clearly expecting something hostile.

The comic book source material, co-written by the movie’s director — Tron: Legacy filmmaker Joseph Kosinski — can shed some light on what’s happening: “In a future where the Earth’s surface has been irradiated beyond recognition, the remnants of humanity live above the clouds, safe from the brutal alien Scavengers that stalk the ruins.” Jak (that’s not a misspelling) is a repairman, not a policeman. It’s just that one of his tools is a firearm, and his job is to look after the surface world on behalf of the 1-percent above.
Whatever he’s looking for, he finds it. Or it finds him.

There’s a small black device with a blinking light on it – some kind of trap. As soon as Cruise’s character sees it, he has time to whisper only “Oh s–t …” before a cable snares around his leg and yanks him across the room through a collapsing wall.
In the shadows are dozens of figures, and the light reveals one of them: Morgan Freeman, sporting round goggles. “I’ve been watching you, Jak,” he says.

Thank God the floating city isn't dirivitive of Blade Runner. A fusion of the Jetsons and mid-century modernism is welcomed.

Tom Cruise Starts Filming Joseph Kosinski's Oblivion
http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=91430


Quote:
Filming has started for TRON: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski's sci-fi film Oblivion in New York and we've got some of the first photos of Tom Cruise on the set. Cruise filmed a scene at the foot of the Empire State Building today with Olga Kurylenko and you can check out pics by clicking here or on the photo below.

Scheduled to hit theaters on April 26, 2013, the film is based on Kosinski's own Radical Publishing comic book series. In a future where the Earth's surface has been irradiated beyond recognition, the remnants of humanity live above the clouds, safe from the brutal alien Scavengers that stalk the ruins. But when surface drone repairman Jak discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off an unstoppable chain of events that will force him to question everything he knows.

Andrea Riseborough, Morgan Freeman, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Melissa Leo also star.

Official Synopsis for Oblivion
Quote:
Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one manís confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind. Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth.

Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jackís mission is nearly complete. Living and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.

Oblivion will be shot in stunning digital 4K resolution on location across the United States and Iceland.

M83 to Score Oblivion
Quote:
French electronic act M83 have been selected to score "Oblivion," and as fans of the band already know, their music has been widescree- ready from minute one. Fronted by Anthony Gonzalez, M83 have built a steady fanbase and critical acclaim with their unique and powerful larger-than-life compositions that swell both the heart and ears all at once. Breaking out with Before The Dawn Heals Us, M83 have delivered six albums that has seen their sound continue to evolve, with 2011's Hurry Up, We're Dreaming marking their highest charting record to date.

Moving recently to Los Angeles to more actively pursue soundtrack work, for Gonzalez, the opportunity to score a movie is the fulfillment of a longtime dream, and he's ready to take on the challenge. "I've wanted to do soundtracks for so long, and starting with such an ambitious project, especially in the sci-fi category, means a lot to me," he told The Playlist, adding that the experience he's gained up until this point in his career has prepared him for the immense task ahead of him. "I'm not afraid to do my first soundtrack on a big Hollywood movie, with a big budget and a lot of pressure...I like challenges and it excites me more than frightens me. I can't wait to hear my music played by amazing musicians, and an orchestra and brass and maybe choirs. It's a chance to create something big and I'm ready for it."

"I"m always trying to push myself and I try to do it with my studio albums, and now this is a new adventure, so I'm going to push myself even harder, and try to surprise people and move people with my music," Gonzalez said, adding: "My vision is really to have a combination of very electronic moments, very M83, and sometimes merge into something more soundtrack-y, but my kind of soundtracks."

Joseph Kosinski first started working on "Oblivion" well before "Tron: Legacy" and notes that even then, M83 was part of his process. "I was listening to his music back in 2005 when I first wrote this story, so he was part of this from the very beginning in my mind, kind of creatively. And about two years ago, when I started putting together a shortlist of people I'd love to talk to for this project, I sat down with him and we talked about it," he said. "And it was very clear he had a passion for film and I knew from just from his electronic music that he had the potential to create something epic."

"The story has a small cast of characters, it was designed as kind of a character driven story, but at the same time it takes place in a vast world. So I need a score that is both emotional, but at the same time can feel big and have a lot of space in it. And his music has that. It's emotional, it's triumphant, it just has a spirit and a life to it," Kosinski added. "It can feel very intimate but it also can feel just huge when it has to. His music is able to capture all those different feelings and qualities simultaneously."

Wow, I certainly have no complaints with this. I've been a fan of them ever since Saturdays = Youth.

I've heard that the secret that Jack discovers is that he's an artificial human created by Earth's government, and not a real human being.

As evidenced here.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:


I've also hear that at one point, one of Jack's "clones" is corrupted/goes haywire, and becomes a villain. We'll definetly have a Cruise VS. Cruise scene.

Can't confirm that, though.

M83 IS AWESOME. This is Kosinski's redemption if it all goes to plan. (I liked Tron Legacy overall. Flawed but I can't dismiss the visuals and the soundtrack)
