VIDEO: Oblivion - best of the drone scenes

I loved Oblivion. I know it's not everyone's cup of Romulan Ale, but it was a great "small" scifi flick (tight cast, compact in scope). It owed more to Wall-E, Planet of the Apes, and 2001 A Space Odyessey, than Star Wars and the like.

Here's a cut of the drone scenes from the film. The art and sound design for these killer robo-bubbles was quite slick. They'd make perfect Big Bro villians for any game. Maybe even cool PCs if one was captured and reprogrammed. They're sort of like floating ED-209s from Robocop.

Also, it's fun to watch them bully Tom Cruise who's lot in life is to fix them.


  1. Puts me in mind of Cleopatra 2525.

    1. That was a fun show. My first exposure to Gina Torres!
