As Jack Harper in Oblivion, Tom Cruise has one of the coolest houses ever to grace the screen. Sitting thousands of feet above Earth, the home in question is a dream of technological slickness poised against a backdrop of clouds. It even has a pool and a landing pad for Cruise's equally cool bubbleship.
Now that Oblivion is available on Blu-ray, you can hang out in this immeasurably high-gloss pad from your own home.

IAR's managing editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to visit Universal Studios backlot and speak to director Joseph Kosinski about his work on Oblivion. The acclaimed director discussed his film, why he developed the concept as an unpublished comic book first, collaborating with Tom Cruise, casting Morgan Freeman, crafting a "game-changer" moment that science fiction fans haven't seen before, and what extras fans can expect on the new Blu-ray and DVD release.

IAR's managing editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to visit Universal Studios backlot and speak to vehicle designer Daniel Simon about his work on the bubble ship used in the film Oblivion. Simon discussed the film, the design of the bubble ship, creating it with director Joe Kosinski, Tom Cruise's suggestions, where to put his gun, and making room for an Elvis bubble head.
Among the many, many commercials to run during today's NFC title game was the inaugural TV spot for Joseph Kosinski's Oblivion. So just in case you were too stunned by the 49ers spectacular victory from a seventeen-point deficit to notice this look at Tom Cruise in a big science fiction actioner, the spot is now helpfully available online.
Tom Cruise is our foremost cinematic runner. His determined sprint just can't be matched in determination, focus, and clench-jawed intensity. Rarely do we see a Cruise movie in which his character does not run like a bat out of hell at least once.
A new official image from Oblivion makes it absolutely clear that Joseph Kosinski's sophomore feature won't be an exception.
Guillermo del Toro is a one-man marketing machine.
The famously loquacious director serves as executive producer on Mama, hitting theaters nationwide this Friday, January 18th. Directed by Andres Muschietti and based on his own short film of the same name, Mama stars Academy award nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, The Help) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (HBO's Game of Thrones, the upcoming Oblivion) as a couple who encounter supernatual madness when the man gains custody of his nieces, played by Megan Charpentier (Resident Evil: Retribution) and Isabel Nelisse (Whitewash).
After their father murdered their mother, the children disappeared into the woods for five years. When they return to civilization, their uncle and his lady suspect that the girls may not have been entirely alone, and they may have brought something horrible back with them.
Del Toro's directorial credits include critically acclaimed, visually stunning films such as Pan's Labyrinth, Cronos, The Devil's Backbone, and both Hellboy and Hellboy II; The Golden Army. He's currently in post-production on this summer's massive monsters versus robots epic Pacific Rim, but del Toro also keeps ridiculously busy as a producer of films as varied as Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, Puss in Boots, Rise of the Guardians, and now, Mama.
Along with several other entertainment journalists, IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick participated in a roundtable interview with Guillermo del Toro, who expertly talked up Mama and what makes the film special while somehow managing to avoid his tendency to indulge in happily obscene language.
Synopsis: Five years ago, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished from their suburban neighborhood without a trace. Since then, their Uncle Lucas and his girlfriend, Annabel, have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home.
As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all alone? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.
On Friday, Universal Pictures revealed a teaser poster for Oblivion, the sophomore feature from TRON: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski, with a promise that the trailer would arrive on Sunday. Well, arrive it has, and the inaugural Oblivion trailer is less teasery than anticipated, dropping Tom Cruise into a postapocalyptic future that isn't what it seems.
The very first teaser poster for Oblivion is making the rounds online, and unlike most posters for movies starring Tom Cruise, this one doesn't even show his famous mug.
Director Joseph Kosinski made his feature debut with TRON: Legacy, a big science fiction movie for Disney two years ago. Now, he's working on his sophomore feature, Oblivion, a big science fiction movie for Universal Pictures. Brewing even before the TRON sequel's release, Oblivion is currently in production starring Tom Cruise as a futuristic solider who gets mixed up in some serious shit. That's my summation of the story, but today Universal issued the first official plot synopsis for the movie, which is actually based on a comic book by Kosinski, Arvid Nelson, and Andree Wallin.
