Critics may not be sold on Tom Cruise's latest Hollywood blockbuster "Oblivion" but it's pretty unanimous that director Joseph Kosinski delivered another gorgeous world in his followup to 2011's "Tron: Legacy."

The crew filmed in eight locations ranging from California to Iceland to capture some of the movie's breathtaking landscapes to make a desolate Earth look both barren and majestic at the same time.

Kosinski told the Los Angeles Times he set out to depict a world that looked ravaged by war but full of light feeling black holes and space have become ubiquitous in the science fiction genre ever since the late '70s. 

“’Alien’ put sci-fi into the darkness — in the hulls of ships, dark planets, always seeming to be night," said Kosinski. "I was interested in inverting that, shooting a daylight film.”

As Cruise said in a featurette for the film, the result is a haunting beauty.

Director Joseph Kosinski set out to do a daytime sci-fi film since he believes so many films in the genre focus on darkness.
