The sci-fi blockbuster starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman will crash land on Blu-ray this August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios is working on 'Oblivion' for a Blu-ray release on August 6.

Based on director Joseph Kosinski's acclaimed graphic novel, 'Oblivion' follows Jack Harper (Tom Cruise), a drone repairman working with his partner Vika (Andrea Riseborough) to salvage vital resources from a desolate, nearly-ruined future Earth. As their assignment approaches its final days, Jack rescues a beautiful stranger (Olga Kurylenko) from a downed spacecraft, triggering a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows, and leaves humanity's fate in his hands.

The Blu-ray/DVD/UV Digital Copy will have 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Feature Commentary with Tom Cruise and director Joseph Kosinski; Deleted Scenes; Isolated Score; and Promise of a New World - The Making of Oblivion.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
