Kosinski wanted to film a cinematic adaptation of the graphic novel Oblivionwhich he started to co-write with Arvid Nelson for Radical Comics. The novel, however, was never finished, as Kosinski now admits that "It was just a stage in the project [of film development]". He explained in an interview with Empire that "partnership with Radical Comics allowed me to continue working on the story by developing a series of images and continuing to refine the story more over a period of years.
Then I basically used all that development as a pitch kit to the studio. Runner One - The Main Frame - Curse Of Evolution even though we really never released it as an illustrated novel the story is being told as a film, which was always the intention.
Walt Disney Pictureswhich produced Kosinski's previous direction Tron: Legacy Oblivion - Various - Austin Noise 2015 , acquired the Oblivion film adaptation rights from Radical Comics and Kosinski after a heated auction in August The film was a directing vehicle for Kosinski with Barry Levine producing and Jesse Berger as executive producer.
Universal Pictureswhich had also bid for the original rights, then bought them from Kosinski and Radical Comics and authorized a PG film version. The script for the film was originally written by Kosinski and William Monahan and underwent a first rewrite by Karl Gajdusek.
The Bubble Ship operated by Cruise's main character, Jack 49, was inspired by the Bell 47 helicopter often colloquially referred to as a "bubble cockpit" helicoptera utilitarian vehicle with a transparent round canopy that Kosinski saw in the lobby of the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattanand which he likened to a dragonfly.
Daniel Simonwho previously worked with Kosinski as the lead vehicle designer on Tron: Legacywas tasked with creating the Bubble Ship from this basis, incorporating elements evocative of an advanced fighter jet with the Bell 47 to create a light, functional vehicle that was both practical and aesthetically pleasing, much as he observed with the ships in A Space Odyssey.
I'm not a fan of excessive decoration, of putting fins on something because it looks cool. Elements of the cockpit, such as the placement of the joystick and pedals, were customized for Cruise, who is a qualified pilot, and who had some input into the design.
The craft was also made to be easy to disassemble and assemble, in order to facilitate transport to the Iceland shooting locations, where it would be mounted on a gimbal for shots of it flying.
The unmanned aerial drones that figure prominently in the plot were created to appear to be in the same design family as the Bubble Ship. Tom Cruise had expressed interest in the film for a long time, and officially committed to it on May 20, In January Chastain entered into talks for a part in the Kathryn Bigelow film Zero Dark Thirty and subsequently dropped out of Oblivion contention.
It was later announced that the role had been given to Kurylenko. In preparation for the role, Kurylenko watched astronaut training Oblivion - Various - Austin Noise 2015 as well Oblivion - Various - Austin Noise 2015 classic science fiction and romance films such as SolarisNotoriousand Casablanca.
The story — both in Solaris and Oblivion — deals with space and memory. The three actresses traveled to Pittsburgh to screen-test with Cruise, who was filming Jack Reacher.
Melissa Leo was cast at a later date as Sally. Production began on March 12,and concluded on July 14, As well as showcasing Iceland's volcanic landscapes, the film's director Joseph Kosinski sought to take advantage of the round-the-clock light, in particular the Oblivion - Various - Austin Noise 2015 to 1am waning light known as " magic hour ", to "bring sci-fi out into the daylight", in contrast with films such as Alienwhich spent their time in dark hulls or benighted planets.
The single most difficult scene to film was when Harper takes a break to admire the view and waters a flower. For the Sky Tower set built on a soundstage in Baton RougeKosinski and cinematographer Claudio Miranda worked closely with visual special-effects house Pixomondo to establish both environment and lighting by the use of 21 front-screen projectors aimed at a huge wraparound backdrop to form one continuous image, rather than blue screen backdrops.
Had blue screen been used on the "glass house" Sky Tower, the glass would have Since (Album Version) - Various - Die 80er Kult-Hits into the blue lighting, and would have had to be reproduced digitally in post-production.
Even the "control table" which Victoria operates was filmed then displayed on a large screen. On June 28,it was announced that French electronic band M83 would compose the soundtrack for Oblivion. Obviously the Tron: Legacy collaboration with Daft Punk worked out as good as I would have ever hoped, [so] I wanted to do something similar in that I'm Inhuman Nature - J Dilla - Nahh..Never Too Much Donuts an artist from outside the movie business to create an original sound for this film.
It had to be an artist whose music fit the themes and story I was trying to tell. And M83's music I felt was fresh and original, and big and epic, but at the same time emotional and this is a very emotional film and it felt like a good fit. To guide Anthony Gonzalez of M83 through the scoring process, director Kosinski brought in Joseph Trapanesewho co-wrote the score alongside Gonzalez.
Kosinski states, "Together they have created the score that I have dreamed about since I first put this story down on paper eight years ago. In an interview with Rolling StoneM83 frontman Anthony Gonzalez said, "I started to write the soundtrack just reading the script, and then when you get the picture in, it's different, and you kind of switch to another vibe and change stuff and start experimenting a lot with the music.
The soundtrack Adagio (Del Concierto Para Trompeta Y Cuerdas - Barroco Andino - Barroco Andino was released on April 9,by Back Lot Music.
It features an additional 13 tracks. All Oblivion - Various - Austin Noise 2015 is composed by Anthony Gonzalez and Joseph Trapanese. Details about Oblivion were kept secret, though the studio was said to have been "very excited" about the film.
Promotions began Aprilwith a part of the footage being screened at the CinemaCon despite the fact that filming had begun just one month prior to the event.
The footage was described as "a combination of early concept art, rough animation, and unfinished dailies ," showcasing a glimpse of the film's landscapes. Oblivion was first presented in Buenos Aires on March 26,Dublin on April 3, and in Hollywood on April 10 at the Dolby Theatre where Cruise himself announced before the screening that the film was actually the first feature to be mixed completely "from start to finish" in the latest state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos surround sound.

The film closed on June 27, The site's critical consensus reads, "Visually striking but thinly scripted, Oblivion benefits greatly from its strong production values and an excellent performance from Tom Cruise. Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter stated " Oblivion is an absolutely gorgeous film dramatically caught between its aspirations for poetic romanticism and the demands of heavy sci-fi action". Tasha Robinson from The A. Club states that an " James Berardinelli of Love Gun - Kiss - The Hottest Show On Earth, Buffalo NY 8/13/10 calls the film " Kosinski proves himself talented in ways his Tron: Legacy didn't suggest.
Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times called the film "[m]ore adventurous than your typical Hollywood tent pole, Oblivion makes you remember why science fiction movies pulled you in way back when and didn't let you go.
Colin Covert from the Minneapolis Star Tribune states that the " Oblivion Oblivion - Various - Austin Noise 2015 so beautiful to look at. But in a movie theater, no one will see you yawn. Jones of the Chicago Reader states that the " Tom Long of the Detroit News states that "Kosinski offers plenty of action here, and he lets the plot reveals bleed out slowly explanations keep coming right to the end.
Kosinski focuses on cool visuals but stints on a compelling plot. It's a dazzler, but the story lacks the impact of the futuristic look. Louis Post-Dispatch states that " Rene Rodriguez of the Miami Herald states that the " And then you realize they don't. Too bad the movie's script wasn't given the same attention as its sleek, brave-new-world look. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Theatrical release poster.
