A VETERAN assigned to extract Earth’s remaining resources begins to question what he knows about his mission and himself in Oblivion, out now at the Showcase in Bargeddie.

In 2073, 37-year-old former Marine commander Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth, which was nearly destroyed by an alien invasion 60 years earlier.

As part of a massive operation to extract the planet’s remaining vital resources, he lives in an airborne ‘town’ floating thousands of metres above the Earth.

With his mission nearly complete, Jack’s soaring existence comes crashing down when he rescues a 22-year-old female stranger from a downed spacecraft.

Her arrival triggers a series of events that forces Jack to question everything he knows about the war and its aftermath.
