The first batch of set photos have emerged online from Joseph Kosinski’s (Tron: Legacy) forthcoming sci-fi flick ‘Oblivion,’ featuring Tom Cruise and Olga Kurylenko. Universal Pictures has pencilled in a April 26th, 2013 release date for the film, moving up the release from an original release date of July 10th, 2013. Starring Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Morgan Freeman, Mellissa Leo and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the film is based on Kosinski’s own Radical Publishing comic book series.

‘Oblivion’ takes place in an apocalyptic future where most of the population live in clouds above an earth surface that has been rendered uninhabitable. Tom Cruise will play a soldier who’s stuck alone on the planet, repairing the drones that patrol and destroy a savage alien life form. He encounters a beautiful woman who crashes in a craft, and their experience together forces him to question his world view. Olga Kurylenko will play Cruise’s lover and partner who acts as an anchor to the city in the clouds while he performs his repair work on the surface below. Andrea Riseborough will play the crash-landed stranger who sways Cruise’s character away from his lover. Source: Comingsoon and Zimbio.
