Tom Cruise plays a soldier, Jack Harper, who is stationed on a military outpost repairing automated drones that are sent to Earth to exterminate alien scavengers or “scavs.” It has been 60 years since the alien invasion, which nearly destroyed the planet. Jack’s mission is to ensure the extraction of vital resources from the Earth’s surface. However, when Jack stumbles upon cryo-pods that are being destroyed by drones, but what he finds in those cryo-pods changes his life and the fate of the human race.
