Second 'Oblivion' Trailer Ditches The WALL-E Overtones For More Olga Kurylenko

By: 02.13.13

Some people don’t want Morgan Freeman to narrate their life. Sometimes, persuasion is necessary.

Universal released the second trailer for Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise and directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy). It’s a definite improvement on the first trailer and the TV spot. In this trailer, unlike the first one, Tom Cruise doesn’t seem like a reverse WALL-E stripping an abandoned Earth of resources. Now we’re getting an idea of the plot, wherein a man with a damaged memory meets an eerily-familiar and gorgeous survivor (Olga Kurylenko) on a supposedly-abandoned Earth. And we can’t let this paragraph end without mentioning how disappointed we are in Urban Dictionary for not describing any sex position as a “reverse WALL-E”. Get it together, internet.

Oblivion opens in IMAX theaters on April 12th, then opens wide April 19th.
