Joeseph Kosinski’S Oblivion, starring Tom Cruise opens tomorrow!  This film is target at adults and is a sci-fi film.  The trailers may seem like it gave away the movie but there’s yet to find out.  It gets weirder than the I am Legend style one sheet implies.

Koinski talks about his film in an interview.  He discussed the challenges of making an original idea and tranforming it into a major film, designing the film for IMAX, and shooting in 8k resolution on the new Sony CineAlta F65 camera and more.

Joseph Kosinski:

  • He couldn’t let go of some sequels and remakes but someone he was able to make a big budget.  He also spoke about how this was originally going to be his first film.
  • Oblivion is based on a comic/graphic novel.
  • Talks about how they used the brand new Sony F-65 camera to shoot Oblivion which helps make it look great in IMAX.  It’s an 8k sensor and it outputs at 4k
  • Talks about how he framed for both IMAX and regular movie screens
  • They shot in Iceland. How many places did they look at before they found where he wanted to film
  • Film feels like it represents this moment in time with drone warfare and insurgency
  • Talks about how he’s developing a few projects for his next film including Tron 3, Black Hole, and some non-science fiction projects
