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.”

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    It doesn’t really sound very interesting. Add Tom Cruise to the mix and it’s a turn off.

    Oblivion = where Tom Cruise is headed, if he isn’t already there.

    Based on all these comments, is there any non-Scientologist that supports him and pays to see his movies? If producers want their movies to be successful, why is he continuing to be cast? For that matter, why does his “wife” continue to be cast? Both of them bring so much negative publicity and stink to a production, it’s like the kiss of death.

    As pretty much every Tom Cruise movie kicks butt, it’s extremely likely that this one probably will, too. I think that Tom Cruise is a great actor that has proven that no matter what the role is, he is able to pull it off, so I’m sure that he’ll handle this one just fine. I’m looking forward to seeing it.

    Tom is a very humble and very talented actor who gives 1000% to his movies. I think his films speak for themselves. There will always be rude comments about his beliefs and personal life by people with there own insecure lives and unhappiness. I think those who say he is gay, are hiding something themselves. Oh, and why does his height upset you so much that you call him names? Do you feel good about making fun of people because they are not physically set to your standards? And regarding scientology, why do people care what a Hollywood actor believes in? Seriously, you people who post such comments are pathetically jealous and sad. You are probably the same audience in the movie theaters that kick the back of people’s chairs, always leave your cell phone on, talk during the movie, and generally ruin the film for everyone else.
