Oblivion - Trailer
it looks pretty interesting...
I think they revealed too much of the story though, but that's just me...

Does seem like they show an awful lot of what are plot points..will have to see if Kosinski has made another beautiful looking movie that leaves you frustrated with the writing.
Absolutely in love with the production design and visual quality though.

On top of that by now I feel desensitized to all these post-apocalyptic movies, too many of them over the past decade. From what I see in the trailer it seems like another Hollywood formula regurgitation. That, and something about Tom Cruise prevents me from suspending my disbelief in his past few movies.
Definitely will see it for the VFX, but likely on Bluray.

Looks cool and with DD doing the VFX, there's no doubt that the visuals will look amazing. I really like the style of the designs and it has some interesting environments. The plot on the other hand from what I saw on the trailer, has some good elements but has the whole post-apocalyptic dystopian society literally written all over it that I've seen so many times now, however with this setting, there might be room for plot twists that will make this fresh.
From the trailer, I found Tom Cruise to be very similar to other roles he has played in the past such as Ethan Hunt but I don't dislike him either. Plus this has a very Minority Report tone to it, wouldn't want it to be compared to it too much and lets just hope it doesn't go War of the Worlds.
That said, looks to be a film to look forward to and to see some amazing visuals.

Oblivion definitely looks visually striking! And Tom Cruise is a pretty good actor.
I hope it turns out to be a good film, with a good story most importantly.
Tron Legacy was visually striking too. But plot-wise? It was a bit "meh" in that department in my opinion...

It's rare to see something that looks to be unique and unexpected. I'm hooked. Now I don't want to see another trailer until I watch it in theater.

Love the trailer and I think it's a good edit.
Don't understand what people here are saying about "reveals too much of the plot"
What I got from the trailer is:
1) There was a war 60 years before that wiped out half the planet.
2) Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is a drone repairman (armed with a laser rifle?) who seems overly interested in the past. (But what the drones are for is not revealed).
3) Harper finds out that unlike what he's been told Earth is in fact still inhabited. (But how????)
4) Harper seems to have memories about civilization that go beyond what seems like initial fascination. (But why????)
5) Humans being sent in pods to Earth (WTF????)
So much of the items above are shown but not connected.... Which is why the trailer in the end features dialogue along the lines of "Do you really want to know what happened?" Which is to say: "That's not the entire plot".
If some people here think the trailer has spoiled the plot I'd like to hear what it is because I don't think they left enough to write an entire story just based on the trailer.
I will though, use some conjecture and say:
A) They showed "story potential" but not the plot (ie "the plan") since they disconnected everything and left only little bits here and there.
B) The trailer is actually out-of-sequence and probably shows a very different event sequence to what will alctually be in the final film.
"Your most creative work is pre-production, once the film is in production, demands on time force you to produce rather than create."
