Just when it looked like Tom Cruise's comeback was cemented thanks to "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol," the biggest hit of his career, the actor hit another dip, with neither "Rock Of Ages" nor "Jack Reacher" setting the world on fire, with the latter looking increasingly unlikely to be the franchise starter that the actor and studio Paramount hoped it would be. But Cruise was ahead of the game, heading into territory he's rarely ventured into before -- hardcore science fiction -- with a pair of original sci-fi action movies coming up. Next year brings Doug Liman's "All You Need Is Kill," but first up is "Oblivion," the second film from director Joseph Kosinski, who made his debut with "Tron Legacy," and a second trailer for the film has just arrived at MSN (via HeyUGuys). And it's done a somewhat better job at selling the movie than the first footage did. »
