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.

‘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.
Marking the directorial debut of screenwriter Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek, Fringe, Transformers), ‘People Like Us’ is a drama/comedy about family, inspired by true events. The film is lead by Chris Pine as Sam, a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, whose latest deal collapses on the day he learns that his father has suddenly died. Against his wishes, Sam is called home, where he must put his father’s estate in order and reconnect with his estranged family. In the course of fulfilling his father’s last wishes, Sam uncovers a startling secret that turns his entire world upside down: He has a 30-year-old sister Frankie whom he never knew about (Elizabeth Banks). As their relationship develops, Sam is forced to rethink everything he thought he knew about this family–and re-examine his own life choices in the process. ’People Like Us’ also stars Olivia Wilde, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mark Duplass and Jon Favreau. The film opens in US cinemas June 29th. Expect a UK release date for ‘People Like Us’ soon.
Family is a big thread in the narrative….?
Chris Pine: Yeah. The humanity of the film, which is kind of a vague and large term, but it’s about family. We all have family, whether they’re disbanded or unified. Whether they’re loving or not. Whether they’re emotionally abusive in a passive-aggressive way, or they’re loving. Whatever it happens to be, we all come from a shell, a little nest. This just happens to be one of the more dysfunctional nests of all time (laughs). I liked it, I liked the humour in it, I liked the anger in it, I liked the deep layers of emotion that had been packed down and packed down and packed down.

Can you talk a little about this incarnation of the Peter Parker/Spider-Man story? In this, there’s a number of things from the Spider-Man universe that we haven’t seen outside of the comics.
Marc Webb: Yeah. I think there’s a lot of things in the comics that haven’t been explored cinematically before. First and foremost we have the story of Peter Parker’s parents. When I was thinking about the character, I was really curious about what happened to him when he was a young kid. He was raised by his aunt and uncle, but we had never met his parents. So I wanted to know the mystery and the story behind that. That’s the beginning of the untold story, it starts off with Peter Parker’s parents. And also, of course, there’s the Gwen Stacy saga, which if you’re familiar with the comics is a really fascinating, ultimately tragic, but interesting storyline that is at times controversial but always interesting. So I wanted to explore that. Then of course there’s the villain, Dr. Curt Connors, otherwise known as The Lizard. Which was one of my favourite villains from the comics and I thought it would be fun to give life to that.
