It’s been a while since I watched Oblivion. It’s a 2013 a post-apocalyptic science fiction movie, made for $120 million. The movie underperformed in the USA, grossing only $89m, but done much better internationally with $197m. Oblivion is Cruise’s twentieth film to gross more than $200 million worldwide and that’s a great achievement.

The movie is set in 2077, some 60 years after an alien invasion made the Earth in a state of disrepair. Tom Cruise is Jack Harper, a technician and one of few people left on Earth (the other survivors have moved to Titan). Jack’s job is to service robot drones that defend power stations from aliens.

Oblivion is maybe too ambitious and imperfect, but at least visual effects are top notch. They include a post-cataclysmic New York and D.C., with such landmarks as the Empire State Building, the Pentagon, the Washington Monument, the Statue of Liberty, and the Brooklyn Bridge.

There are no brands in 2077, however there is (at least) one branded product visible in the movie. It can be seen in Tom’s flashbacks that show him in front of the Empire State Building with a girl (I won’t reveal much more).

I’ve noticed that Cruise was wearing Randolph Engineering aviator sunglasses.

While driving a motorcycle Tom was also wearing goggles. They might be Wiley X’s model SG-1.

There’s also Morgan Freeman and his version of mountaineering sunglasses.
