Inspired by the lands within Disney World and Disneyland comes Tomorrowland, a movie we knew nothing about until the teaser dropped this afternoon.
In theaters May 22, 2015, the trailer is absolutely spectacular, giving us just enough information to get excited. And excited you will be – or better be, if it were up to me. The footage shows a young girl getting out of a prison, where she’s presented with a pen of sorts that wasn’t hers. When she touches it, she ends up in another world – a world teased for less than a second (see above). The “real world” approach is the best thing about this teaser, as it lends itself to the idea that this could be authentic.
But what’s most exciting is that it’s directed by the great Brad Bird (awesome name, I know), who made a better Fantastic Four movie than FOX will ever make (The Incredibles).
We also see George Clooney because, well, he’s the reason half of American will go to the theaters.
I really hope Disney can pull of another Pirates of the Caribbean because I would love nothing more than to have a new reason to visit “Tomorrowland.”
Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever.
Featuring a screenplay by Prometheus and “Lost” writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen, “Tomorrowland” promises to take audiences on a thrill ride of nonstop adventures through new dimensions that have only been dreamed of.
The film also stars Hugh Laurie as brilliant scientist David Nix, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson.
