Watch: Trailer of 'Oblivion', Tom Cruise's sci-fi next

From the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Oblivion is based on a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition. One man's confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind. Tom Cruise is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth.

Living in 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.
