Oblivion videos chronicle the war between humans and aliens

Universal has posted two Oblivion clips depicting the war humans and their enigmatic alien invaders.

The first clip shows the protagonist, played by Tom Cruise, laying in a deceptively beautiful forest glen on Earth before he is called away to fix a malfunctioning drone.

The second video focuses on the words of Malcolm Beech, played by Hollywood veteran Morgan Freeman, a resistance leader stationed on Earth, which has allegedly been depopulated.

The official synopsis is thus:

“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 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 hits theaters on April 12, 2013.
