New ‘Oblivion’ TV Spot Just Goes Ahead and Blows Up the Moon


Well now, this just seems cruel. While we’ve long known that the Earth would be getting busted up in Joseph Kosinski‘s upcoming Tom Cruise-starring Oblivion, no one ever said a damn thing about the moon (sweet, innocent moon!) taking some heat, too.

Though most television spots for new films tend to be cobbled together from a bunch of previously-seen theatrical trailers, one of today’s two new Oblivion spots actually comes complete with some very intriguing new material (yes, like the moon-kablooey) that give us more insight to just what sort of things happened when the film’s aliens (or are they?) destroyed our planet. Yes, we’ve long known about some football stadium-related disasters, but it’s nice to get a larger sense of scope, particularly of the celestial body variety.

Check out two new television spots for Oblivion after the break, including that moon-busting little ditty we’ve been teasing.

Oblivion opens on April 19th. [Oblivion YouTube page, via FirstShowing]
