m83 features in ‘Oblivion’ Soundtrack

Makers of epic, seething tracks M83 have been signed up to write the latest soundtrack for Oblivion , the latest Sci-Fi epic from director Joseph Kosinski.

The film takes us to 2073, when a 37 year-old former-Marine Commander Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth, which was nearly destroyed by an alien invasion 60 years earlier. As part of a massive operation to extract the planet’s remaining vital resources, he lives in an airborne “town” floating thousands of meters above the Earth.

His mission nearly complete, Jack’s soaring existence comes crashing down when he rescues a 22 year-old female stranger 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. In addition, after being captured by an insurgency led by 102 year-old Malcolm Beech (Morgan Freeman), Jack is told that the society in which he lives may in fact be a police state.
