Tom Cruise: 'Oblivion' Leading Man!

Tom Cruise has signed on to play the lead role in the upcoming fantasy thriller Oblivion, according to Deadline.

Oblivion, which is based on the graphic novel of the same name, “takes place in an apocalyptic future where most of the population lives in clouds above an earth surface that has been rendered uninhabitable.”

Tom‘s character is “a soldier who’s stuck alone on the planet, repairing the drones that patrol and destroy a savage alien life form. He encounters a beautiful woman who crashes in a craft, and their experience together forces him to question his world view.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Tom Cruise’s new role?

he looks old.
and his teeth don’t line up in the front correctly.
who is this again?

# 2

Nice wig

# 3

it is because of Winn Dixie.

# 4

I wouldn’t spend a dime to see any movie he’s in. So, that’s what I think about this new role of his.

# 5

I wish he’d catch a clue that he’s not a leading man anymore. Too hard to separate the movie character from the crazy-@ss $cientologist who’s playing it.

# 6

Avatar spin off ? and isn’t he a bit too old for this role ?

# 7

who keeps putting him in movies? totally uninterested.

# 8

Insert Tom Cruise/Oblivion joke here.

Tom is a great looking guy..Some d^m actor…should have won many Oscars….

I have seen his movies and he is way overrated.

The movie sounds like a cross between Star Trek (City of Above the Clouds) and Wall-E.
Tom is soooo yesterday.

Wouldn’t pay a dime to watch his creme puff movies. The gay midget
and his cult don’t turn ppl on anymore. We were fooled once but not twice.

Ewwww… The Crazy is not aging well. I also will not spend my hard earned money on anything that this freak touches. I think this movie will be a dud … nobody cares about this crazy loon anymore.

The story sound corny at the best lol

***BARF*** he makes me ill.

Is he heading to oblivion or is he already there?

Didn’t Will Smith do a very similar type movie?

I like TC in Jerry McGuire; A Few Good Men; Top Gun and other earlier movies.

i don’t know what to say about this film because i’ve never heard of the graphic novel “Oblivion”. i guess i’ll have to read it. but one thing i do know, this man has more money than common sense. you would think that he would get a decent hair cut; that hair coming down on his forehead looks silly. i don’t know if i will go see this film because it depends on who else is in it. despite that, apparently he has a legion of fans in North America and he’s more than popular in Asia.

You’re disgusting, #13.

I hope that Tom Cruise does more dramas from now on. He is pigeonholing himself as an actor who just does huge blockbusters.
I’ve always wanted to see him do a movie with Julia Roberts and one with Tom Hanks. They are all incredible actors and it would be amazing to see them bounce off each other in a film.

Not another alien movie with scientologists….we all know how they turn out

I’d love Kosinski (why no mention about him as a director?) to use less known actor. though an old horse to ride.. haha

Is this a movie or his biography?

OMG! Tom’s autobiography!!!!
