Sci-fi fans were given something to look forward to this week when it was confirmed that director Joseph Kosinski’s latest offering, Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough and Olga Kurylenko, will hit Blu-ray on August 19th.
The futuristic film, an adaptation of Kosinski’s acclaimed graphic novel, opens with drone repairman Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) working with his partner Vika (Andrea Riseborough) to extract resources from a decimated planet earth. As the mission is winding up, Cruise encounters a beautiful stranger (Olga Kurylenko) who forces him to call into question his mission and everything he had taken for granted.
