M83

Joseph Kosinski knows how to pick his composers. When Kosinski made his directorial debut with Tron: Legacy, he brought in the electronica duo Daft Punk to add the musical spark of life to the film. In fact it was Daft Punk’s music that was the most memorial parts of the movie.

Now Kosinski is setting up for his next feature, Oblivion. Filming has already begun with Tom Cruise taking the lead as a repairman who starts to question everything he knows when he comes across a mysterious pod with a live woman inside of it.

Not only do we have an updated synopsis of the film you can read below, but we now know that M83 will be conducting the score for the film.

Oblivion

Oscar-winning acting legend (and go-to man for stentorian narration) Morgan Freeman has signed on to join the cast of Universal Pictures’ Oblivion, the upcoming epic sci-fi adventure from Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski.

The film, based on a comic book series created by Kosinski for Radical Publishing, takes place in a future where the surface of Earth has become too irradiated and infested by hostile aliens known as Scavengers to be inhabited by humans. Thus the remnants of mankind have taken to living in the clouds. But when a surface drone repairman named Jak discovers a mysterious woman in a crashed pod he is forced to question everything he has ever known.

Oblivion Gate

This has to be one of the coolest things I’ve seen made from a fictional video game world, and someone needs to make this bad boy into a reality for the rest of us video game uber–nerds.

Reddit user notadoctoreither took every single book you can read on your lengthy journey through The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, printed them all out, and compiled them into one massive tome of Elder Scrolls lore. And the result is exquisite. The book is perfect in every way—in look, in font, and in overall presentation. It’s something that every fan of the games would kill to own, and for that very reason, I’m both depressed at my inability to be so crafty and jealous of this man’s talents!

You can see some images of the book by clicking on over to the other side now!

Skyrim Banner

Ever since Todd Howard made millions of gamers squeal with joy at the announcement of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, we’ve waited patiently for that 11/11/11 release date to finally arrive.

Now it’s only a couple short months away, and the various trailers and demos that we’ve seen of the game have shown us that this could just be the biggest and best game ever made.

With a game of that size, many assumed that Skyrim might end up on multiple discs when it comes to the Xbox 360 version, much like we saw with Mass Effect 2 and L.A. Noire. But Bethesda has a little surprise for us, with art director Matt Carofano confirming that Skyrim will, in fact, be on one single Xbox 360 disc.

Walt Disney has announced that they have acquired the rights to the film adaptation of Oblivion, the upcoming graphic novel being released by Radical Publishing. The title was created by Joseph Kosinski, written by Arvid Nelson, and illustrated by Andrée Wallin.

The deal comes as no big surprise; Kosinski is the director of Disney’s Tron: Legacy, and the existing relationship made plenty of sense for this new project. Along with the acquisition of of the property, Disney will also have Kosinski directing and producing this film for them as well.

Oblivion takes place in the future where radiation has destroyed the Earth’s surface, forcing any remaining human beings to live at high altitudes above the clouds as vicious alien creatures scavenge the wastelands below. When Jak, a surface drone repairman, discovers a woman in a crashed pod, many mysteries and questions begin to arise and cause Jak to wonder about everything he’s ever known.

Click over for more and to find out where you can check out the first chapter of the graphic novel now.
