His mission nearly complete, Jack’s soaring existence comes crashing down when he rescues a female stranger [Kurylenko] from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a series of events that forces Jack to question everything he knows about the war and its aftermath. Oblivion hits theatres this April 10th in the UK & April 12th in the US.
