Joseph Kosinski has talk about Oblivion in a recent interview. Here is an excerpt of what he has said about the movie and working with Tom. Enjoy the full interview HERE.
“I’m not sure what the count is, but it’s a lot of music. There’s a lot of music in the movie. It’s probably eighty percent scored. I would say the same thing I said for the Daft Punk tracks, some stuff feels like Daft and some stuff you would never guess Daft would do. Some of my favorite tracks from Legacy were tracks that you would never guess in a million years were Daft Punk and I think the same goes for this. Some of the stuff you’re going to hear the M83 in its full glory, screaming out, but at other times it serves the movie as a score should it’s under the surface. So it will be interesting to see what people think.”
“My first pass through it very quickly got down to two and a half hours, very quickly. I think the first thing I showed the studio was around two hours and fifteen minutes, two hours and twenty. That’s where we just keep working, distilling, focusing. There’s certain narrative threads that you don’t need but you don’t really know until you get into it. You don’t really know what you need and what you don’t until you sit down and watch the whole movie. I think we’ll be closer to just over two hours, which is where we are now and I think that’s where we’re going to stay. “
“I learned a lot from Tom. He’s worked with all of my heroes, literally, and just is so knowledgeable and has done so many movies and so many great movies. So through him I was learning from Stanley Kubrick and Michael Mann and Ridley Scott and Sydney Pollack. All that advice and talks they had with him I got to get that second hand and there’s no replacement for that, it was an amazing, amazing opportunity. So I’m really excited about the movie and really proud of it. It was an amazing experience. I would say any director that has a shot at working with Tom, do not hesitate. Go immediately and you will learn, you will be pushed and you will have an experience you will never forget.”
Enjoy these screencaps from the Oblivion trailer.
Oblivion will be released exclusively in IMAX on April 12, 2013, one week ahead of its wide release on April 19, 2013. This will be director Joseph Kosinski’s second film in IMAX following Tron: Legacy.
Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment, said in a statement, “With the one-two punch of an early IMAX release window and the film’s expanded aspect ratio, we believe Oblivion is the perfect kick-off to our 2013 summer slate. We’re ecstatic about continuing our longstanding relationship with Tom Cruise, director Joseph Kosinski and the Universal team to bring this highly anticipated action-adventure to IMAX audiences around the world.”
Here’s the film’s official synopsis via IMAX:
“Tom Cruise stars in Oblivion, an original and groundbreaking cinematic event from the director of TRON: Legacy and the producer of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. 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.
Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.
Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.
Oblivion was shot in stunning digital 4K resolution on location across the United States and Iceland.”
