Learn how Earth was destroyed in apocalyptic new Oblivion clip

One of the most intriguing sci-fi flicks of the year opens this week, and the latest clip from Oblivion shows how the producers destroyed the world.

Joseph Kosinski’s post-apocalypse tale of an abandoned Earth has some of the most striking visuals of any big tentpole this summer. A massive new featurette digs into why Earth is so empty, and how the director designed that signature look. The clip is loaded with new footage, and shows off more of those empty vistas and overgrown remnants of civilization.

Here’s the synopsis:

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 in 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.
