Trivia / Oblivion (2013)

Go To

  • California Doubling: Set in New York City and New York State. Filmed (for the most part) on location in Iceland. The Alien Invasion and subsequent war has turned the place unrecognizable except for some remaining landmarks.
  • Creator Backlash: Andrea Riseborough has had some choice words about how she would often be directed to pose in the most attractive way possible, rather than anything that made sense for the character.

  • Dueling Movies: With Will Smith's After Earth. Oblivion won out as it not only got better reviews from critics (still mixed) while After Earth was universally panned but managed to gross slightly higher. Not helping matters at all was Oblivion ($120 Million) having a smaller budget than After Earth ($130 Million).
  • Similarly Named Works: With the 1994 film, the video game and the fifth book in The Power of Five.
