The 2013 summer movie season starts early this year with Tom Cruise's sci-fi epic 'Oblivion,' which is now playing in theaters and IMAX!

Here's what you need to know about 'Oblivion' - in a world overflowing with sequels and superheroes and reboots, 'Oblivion' is a completely original sci-fi action movie; something you hardly see anymore these days. So for everyone who complained about last summer's needless 'Total Recall' redo, this movie is for you. As the official plot description says:

On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.

Of course, if that's not enough to get you excited, a while back we wrote a whole list of things, 10 Reasons Why We're Excited for 'Oblivion.'

'Oblivion' is in theaters - both standard and IMAX - now and you can buy tickets at the official 'Oblivion' website. (Bonus: if you're one of the first 100 people to see 'Oblivion' in IMAX in your town, you'll get this pretty nifty poster, shown below, signed by the film's director Joe Kosinski.)
