M83 Scoring Joseph Kosinski's OBLIVION
TRON: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski has a thing for memorable film scores. There are those who would argue that Daft Punk's score for TRON was the best thing about the movie and Kosinski is, in my view, making an upgrade in that department by signing on French elctro-rock act M83 to score his upcoming Oblivion.
M83 have had obvious cinematic aspirations from day one, much of their key work playing as scores to non-existent film. Now they get the chance to try the real thing.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 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.
