Tom Cruise’s Oblivion Comes To Blu-ray This July

Oblivion - Tom Cruise Morgan Freeman Advance Theatrical Poster - Courtesy of Universal PicturesUniversal Studios has released the following press release revealing all the details for the Blu-ray, DVD, and digital release of Oblivion.

On a desolate, nearly ruined future Earth, Tom Cruise (Mission Impossible Franchise) and Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman (The Dark Knight Rises, Wanted) star in the ground-breaking cinematic event Oblivion, a visually stunning, post-Apocalyptic thriller. A glimpse of a perilous future from visionary filmmaker Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy) and the producers of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Oblivion is “unlike anything you’ve ever seen” (Moviefanatic’s Joel Amos), as one man confronts his mysterious past in a journey of redemption and discovery.

Based on Kosinski’s acclaimed graphic novel, the film also stars Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Seven Psychopaths), Andrea Riseborough (W.E., Happy-Go-Lucky), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Mama, “Game of Thrones”) and Oscar®-winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter, Frozen River). Oblivion will be available on Digital July 23, 2013 as well as Blu-ray™ Combo Pack with DVD, Digital including UltraViolet™,  and On Demand on August 6, 2013, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

It is 2077 and Earth has been decimated. Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is a drone repairman on the evacuated planet, working with his partner Vika (Andrea Riseborough) to salvage vital resources. As their assignment approaches its final days, Jack rescues a beautiful stranger (Olga Kurylenko) from a downed spacecraft, triggering a chain of events that forces him to question everything he thought he knew and leaves humanity’s fate in his hand. Intense, spectacular, and exciting (Scott Mantz, Access Hollywood), Oblivion combines a taut and original story with mind-bending special effects for an epic adventure that shouldn’t be missed.
