SDCC: The convention center gets apocalyptic courtesy of Oblivion

See what the San Diego Convention Center (home of the SDCC) looks like in the post-apocalyptic world of Oblivion.

The film, which debuted earlier this year in theaters, shows a completely demolished Earth in the wake of an alien invasion. Not that I’m going to spoil any of them for you here, but there’s twists and turns galore in the movie in which Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman star. The film also features the art design of one Andree Wallin.

As a very cool bonus, Wallin also designed a special item for fans who’ll be attending the SDCC this week in the form of an image of a San Diego Convention Center that’s been left as a shell of its former self, post-invasion. The illustration will be featured on a special limited edition show bag that’ll be given out at the Geek magazine booth (#4014) on the show floor. In order to get the bag, you’ll need a ‘code word’ that’ll be given out on Geek’s Twitter feed (more info here) and you’ll also have to show up early to the booth as we’re not kidding when we say this baby is going to be ‘limited’.

The whole promo is to celebrate the arrival of Oblivion on digital formats this July the 23rd and on Blu Ray on August 6th. So get the bag at the Con and add the movie to your collection not too far after that.

Here’s what you can expect to find in the box if you’re buying in for the Blu Ray version of the film:
