The post-apocalyptic scene of downtown San Diego is meant to show what the city would look like in 2017 — at least in the film. Andree Wallin, the concept illustrator for “Oblivion,” created the image that was commissioned for this year’s fanfest, that officially kicks off Thursday and runs through Sunday.
Universal will make the image available as limited edition tote bags at Geek magazine’s booth on the conventioncenter’s show floor.
Based on Joseph Kosinski’s graphic novel, “Oblivion” will be released digitally on July 23, before bowing as a Blu-ray combo pack and on On Demand on Aug. 6.
Extra features will include commentary tracks with Cruise and Kosinski, as well as documentaries on the making of the sci-fi actioner, including the making of the film’s bubble ship. The film’s soundtrack, from M83, will also be playable as an isolated track.
