A lengthy new featurette for Tom Cruise’s Oblivion has been released, which digs into the mysterious story and shows off some new footage of the glorious post-apocalypse.

The new promo clip includes some interviews with the cast and crew in which they break down the finer points of the story about one of the last men on future-Earth.

Here’s the latest synopsis, which teases lots of sci-fi intrigue:

Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth.  Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.

Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft.  Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.

Check out the new clip below and let us know what you think about the premise.

Oblivion is scheduled to open April 19.
