One of these, for example, has to do with the return to one of his less relevant jobs in recent years. Is about Oblivionthe 2013 film that introduced the celebrity to the field of science fiction.
Despite having a novel idea and having a luxury cast, many people called the film bored and sonsa. The long shots of the protagonist driving his space motorcycle in a desert or the load of action much less than expected, made the film to be seen that way.
However, everything indicates that the study is actually planning a sequel. 10 years have passed and time is noticeable in the appearance of each of the protagonists, so it is not known if it will be a direct continuation or if there will be a period of distance between the two plots.
In this way, the portal Giant Freakin Robot, which is specialized in Hollywood leaks, advanced a bit about it. The website even dared to share a possible synopsis of what will be the future of the growing franchise.
“In Oblivion, the malevolent AI Tet takes the human form of Sally, the director of the NASA mission that Julia and the original Jack Harper were part of, to communicate with humans. With a villain known to have that ability and tendency, it opens the door for almost every actor from the first movie to join Tom Cruise in Oblivion 2, whether their characters survived or not.
That includes Sally, who was played by Melissa Leo (The Fighter) and the leader of the scavengers Malcolm Beech, who was played by Morgan Freeman (Se7en). This Andrea Riseborough (Birdman), who played one of the astronauts (as well as his clones), the skeptical Sykes played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau de Game of Thrones, y Zoe Bell (The Hateful Eight) as the scavenger Kara. There’s a lot of impressive talent there, including two Oscar winners (Leo and Freeman) and one nominee (Riseborough).
It should be noted that the first installment did not have a good score from the criticism. On Rotten Tomatoes it did not exceed 54%, while on FilmAffinity it only reached 5.8/10 and on IMDb, where it did best, it was only enough to touch 7/10. It’s one of the lowest-rated productions of Cruise’s and Freeman’s careers.
Tom Cruise has not referred to his connection to the alleged project and still no dates have been confirmed of realization.
