New 'Oblivion' Posters: Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman Face the End of the World

The seemingly immortal Tom Cruise has a lot to prove with 'Oblivion,' his upcoming science fiction epic and the subject of two fancy new posters. After the solid-but-not-spectacular box office performance of 'Jack Reacher,' Cruise's superstar status has been called into question, but there's no better way to combat that then headlining a major sci-fi action movie. The two new posters feel like they're hedging their bets: one relies almost entirely on Mr. Cruise's star power while the other relies on some nifty apocalyptic imagery to get butts in theater seats.

Tom Cruise's 'Jack Reacher' is Heading for a Sequel

by Damon Houx February 22, 2013 @ 6:30 PM
December is often a surprising month at the box office as many films that never top the box office end up making a lot of money. The Tom Cruise vehicle 'Jack Reacher' opened right before Christmas and had a $15 million opening weekend. Sounds weak right? And yet the picture has grossed nearly $80 million domestically, and over $200 million worldwide. Which is why Paramount is talking about a sequel.

There's no denying it -- there's tons of scope and promise in this 40 second spot, enough to actually make us excited for a movie by the guy who made the sleeping pill known as 'Tron Legacy.' Watch the trailer embedded below.

'Jack Reacher' Review

If he hadn't already used that title for another movie, Tom Cruise could have easily called 'Jack Reacher' 'The Last Samurai.' There's a bit of Toshiro Mifune's Sanjuro in this Reacher guy: the masterless warrior who strides into a corrupt town, answers to no one, rights a few wrongs, busts a few heads, and wanders away to find his next challenge. He has no possessions; he owns exactly two shirts and one jacket. All he carries with him is a roll of $100 bills, a passport, a toothbrush, and his inflexible moral code. He would have fit right in back in feudal Japan. Or the Old West, for that matter. He'd make a hell of a Man With No Name.
