That's what I gathered. I gotta say I have just about zero desire to see this over some of the other trailers that have been coming out recently.
Oblivion's main story revolves around Cruise's efforts to thwart a fanatical cult known as the "Mythic Dawn" that plans to open the gates to a realm called "Oblivion".
There are lots of smaller plot lines - like one particularly fun scene where a crazy guy named Glarthir approaches Cruise in a city, paranoid that three people are plotting to kill him. He enlists Cruise's character to help him kill them - which Cruise does just because he's a bloodthirsty bastard - but then he double-crosses Glarthir and kills him, too!
