Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Oblivion’ Obliterates the Competition

oblivion_review_tom_cruise

Tom Cruise and science fiction are a powerful combination. Although the opening weekend of 'Oblivion' didn't break any records big or small, it's a more than solid start for a non-franchise, non-sequel, non-reboot. That's a sad statement on the current state of Hollywood, but that's another topic for another day.

Olga Kurylenko Interview: Talking With the ‘Oblivion’ Dream Girl

Olga Kurylenko Oblivion
GQ

Olga Kurylenko is a dream girl. I mean this literally: in 'Oblivion,' her latest film, she plays a mysterious woman who haunts a man’s dreams. And like Tom Cruise’s character, we soon realize that we’re more than a little bit in love with her, thanks to her quiet introspection, a sort of heartrending sincerity, and, sure, the fact that she’s drop-dead gorgeous. But then again, audiences have been getting slowly introduced to her over the past several years in a number of roles where she’s a troubled, unattainable and yet remarkably welcoming young beauty who wins the heart of her male counterparts.

We recently sat down with Kurylenko at the Los Angeles press day for Oblivion, where the actress had just survived a full day of interviews – we were her last. And though she apologized repeatedly, for some perceived fatigue on her part, she was engaged and thoughtful as she spoke about the role of Julia, playing a character introduced to audiences as a romantic ideal. Additionally, she discussed her collaboration with director Joe Kosinski ('TRON: Legacy'), and talked about how her own idealized past – as a former model – proves to be both a blessing and a curse as she continues to win the hearts not only of audiences, but filmmakers eager to work with the best actresses in Hollywood.

‘Oblivion’ Review

Oblivion Review
Universal

'Oblivion' is best described as opportunity, squandered. Its landscape – conceptual and physical – feels remarkably unique and bursting with possibilities, but the exploration of both lacks originality, and energy. Joe Kosinski’s follow-up to 'TRON: Legacy' is, like its predecessor, a gorgeously mounted, inventive world-building endeavor, but it’s also equally bloodless -- ponderous without being thoughtful, ambitious without being inspired, much less inspiring. The chronicle of a battle for the fate of humankind that possesses little humanity of its own, 'Oblivion' is an overstuffed compendium of familiar genre tropes rendered with ornamental beauty but not much emotional depth.
