M83 to Score Oblivion

Now in production, Joseph Kosinski’s Oblivion marks the director’s follow-up project from 2010′s TRON: Legacy and, today, The Playlist has revealed that French electropop group M83 will follow in the footsteps of that film’s popular Daft Punk soundtrack, scoring Oblivion in its entirety.

Scheduled to hit theaters on April 26, 2013, Oblivion is based on Kosinski’s own Radical Publishing comic book series. In a future where the Earth’s surface has been irradiated beyond recognition, the remnants of humanity live above the clouds, safe from the brutal alien Scavengers that stalk the ruins. But when surface drone repairman Jak (Tom Cruise) discovers a mysterious woman in a crash-landed pod, it sets off an unstoppable chain of events that will force him to question everything he knows.

Andrea Riseborough, Morgan Freeman, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Melissa Leo also star.
