Oblivion: The IMAX Experience

In the late 21st century, after space invaders have forced mankind to push the button, a lonely security guard (Tom Cruise) patrols an evacuated earth in a whiz-bang spacecraft that can do backflips in mid-air; when he recovers a space coffin containing a woman in suspended animation (Olga Kurylenko), he learns more about his mission than he'd like to know. The story eventually devolves into a grab bag of sci-fi tropes—time travel, doppelgangers, government perfidy, roving bands of human survivalists—but, as with so many other Cruise productions, the sheer scale of everything is so mind-numbing that you may not notice. Joseph Kosinski directed; with Andrea Riseborough and iconic-presence-for-hire appearances by Morgan Freeman and Melissa Leo.
