This week, Universal Pictures participated in CinemaCon for the first time in a couple years. They premiered new footage from nine of their upcoming films, including the Tom Cruise-starrer science fiction film Oblivion and the Dark Horse Comics adaptation of R.I.P.D. (which stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges). [...]
Even though production has just begun on Joseph Kosinski‘s Oblivion, Universal showed footage from the first few days of filming! In the brief snippets of footage we saw Tom Cruise commanding a ship, Morgan Freeman looking badass with a cool looking beard, and the beginnings of an action sequence. For those unfamiliar with the film, Cruise plays a veteran soldier who’s banished to the surface of a post-apocalyptic Earth, and tasked with repairing ships that hunt down the aliens who destroyed our planet. When a mysterious woman (Andrea Riseborough) crash-lands nearby, their encounter sets off an eye-opening chain of events. Again, since we only saw concept art and raw dailies, I won’t say more than it looked cool and it’s definitely on my radar.
