It’s turning into a really, truly terrible week for Earth’s most famous cities, and there hasn’t been this much worldwide cine-devastation since Roland Emmerich
stopped toppling landmarks. But on the heels of London getting hit in the Star Trek Into Darkness
poster (and San Francisco in the trailer), comes the first official teaser image for Tom Cruise
’s latest sci-fi, Oblivion
, which you can see below via IGN. This time around, it’s New York shown worn and ruined, which factors into the plot.Oblivion
, directed by Tron Legacy’s Joseph Kosinski
, takes place in a world where Earth has been badly damaged by decades of war with an alien race known as the Scavs.Most of the population lives above the planet, but Cruise’s Jack Harper is a drone repairman, stationed on the Earth to keep the robo-guardians of the place active against enemy incursion.
