5 Movies We're Looking Forward To: April 2013

April Movie Preview - Oblivion

After films like War of the Worlds and Minority Report (both directed by Steven Spielberg) it's fair to say that Tom Cruise and science fiction go well together. That's why Oblivion makes our list for April. Pairing the venerable action star with Tron: Legacy helmer Joseph Kosinski, Oblivion is the first of two post-apocalyptic sci-fi blockbusters set for release this year (the other being Will Smith's After Earth).

This film imagines a future where Earth won the "war" against an invading entity, but the planet was ravaged in the process, leaving it seemingly uninhabitable. But as Cruise's character - a maintenance tech who works the barren wasteland - discovers, that history might not be quite true. Quality of Tron aside, Kosinski has a pretty keen eye for flashy visuals, and we're excited to hear M83's score. The film has potential, but there are plenty of question marks.

Check out the trailer for Oblivion.
