New 'Oblivion' Footage

This is convincing me. At first, 'Oblivion' was looking a skintch by-the-numbers -- entertaining enough but with no core. The last trailer however, and now this featurette, have changed my mind.

If they found the right combo 'Oblivion' could be a classic of some caliber. The story elements are there, the subtext has that weight and universal appeal, character arc is solid, and reversals/reveals have potential. That may be a skintch optimistic -- how often do classics roll out...-- but, if it's not quite on that level, the footage is looking to be better than 'entertaining enough', which ain't bad these days.

Waiting, hoping.
