I have no idea what to expect out of Joseph Kosinski‘s Tron Legacy follow-up, Oblivion. The film looks gorgeous, and star Tom Cruise and foil Morgan Freeman could be a great opposed pair. But then again, there’s Tron Legacy, and that was also very pretty, with some good actors. And so I feel cautious about getting too optimistic.
As was the case with Tron Legacy, one thing very much in Oblivion‘s favor is the score. This time the work is from Anthony Gonzalez of M83, with Joseph Trapanese and singer Susanne Sundfør. I’m hesitant to really pay too much attention to the score just yet, as I think it will be better ingested along with the full film. But for those who want gratification right now, the entire score is streaming online.
We’ve got the stream below, along with a couple featurettes, several clips, and the new IMAX poster. (That poster is seen cropped above.)
Not having seen the film yet, I can’t tell you if any of the track titles here are spoilerish. But the player will only show you the first few, and then you can just let it run and not look at the later track titles.
In addition to that score, we’ve got two more featurettes highlighting aspects of the film. One is focused on the IMAX presentation, and the other on one of the major locations.
If you’d like to see extended versions of a few of the scenes present in the Oblivion trailers, the four clips below will do the trick.
Oblivion opens on April 19th.
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 man’s 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, Jack’s 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.
