"How can we take superb concepts from actual sci-fi films like THE MATRIX, WALL-E, PLANET OF THE APES, and MOON and then make them into a shitstorm of a movie?"
"Ummm...I don't know, but I'll bet I can get Tom Cruise to star!"
"Brilliant! I'll see if I can rope national treasures Melissa Leo and Morgan Freeman!"
"Superb! What will we call it?"
"We'll name it 'Oblivion,' after the weed I'm high on right now."
That's exactly how it happened, kids.
