Joseph Kosinskiâ€™s Oblivion is no ordinary small sci-fi film. In fact it is so big that it could fit an IMAX screen. While Oblivion has been making its marketing campaign run over at SXSW and WonderCon, the film will be making a big debut over at the LA Timesâ€™ Hero Complex Film Festival. The film will be presented in its IMAX format and Kosinski and film star Tom Cruise will be there to attend a very exclusive Q&A after the event. Hit the jump for more info.
The interactive Q&A will be moderated by Times film writer Rebecca Keegan at New York Cityâ€™s AMC Loews 34th Street 14 on Monday, April 15, at 8:00 p.m. ET.
The post-screening Q&A will be simulcast via satellite to nine additional IMAX theatres in Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, and Virginia Beach. The discussion will also stream live at the Hero Complex as well as IMAXâ€™s Facebook page.
Attendees will be able to submit questions in real time via Twitter using #oblivion.
If anyone plans on attending this one-of-a-kind event, you will be able to obtain your tickets beginning at 12:00 p.m. ET on April 3 at www.OblivionHero.com. Attendance is free and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Thatâ€™s right, itâ€™s free, and you can ask Joseph Kosinski and Tom Cruise a question about the film â€“ or others if Mission Impossible 5 or Tron 3 are on your mind.
The featurette describes the world of Oblivion and how it got there. But if you are interested in the technical aspect, you should know that even though the film wasn’t shot in IMAX, Kosinki kept in mind how the landscapes would play a big part in the movie, and with all the wide screen shots seen in the film, it’s great that he adjusted his shot selection accordingly.
