I’ve noticed something weird. People around these parts don’t seem to be anywhere near as excited for Tomorrowland as I am. Maybe it’s the fact that the movie was co-written by Damon Lindelof, the internet’s favourite whipping boy, or maybe it’s the fact that all the trailers for this Disney effort has been very light on the tangible story elements (particularly how it relates to the real Disneyland) and more about the razzle-dazzle. I don’t know.
What I do know, is that was co-written and is being directed by Brad Bird, the guy behind The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and that gets me crazy excited. And the razzle dazzle sure as hell doesn’t hurt its cause one iota.
Especially not after this damn exciting latest trailer which eschews the sci-fi sense of wonder of the previous really cool trailer, and instead gives us a look at the movie’s geeked out crazy action sequences that boasts everything from thinking with portals to bathtub rocket ships.
Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (George 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.
Damn, that looks good! Along with the new trailer, a new series of character posters for the film have also been unveiled – showing George Clooney as Frank Walker, Britt Robertson as Casey, Raffey Cassidy as Athena, and Thomas Robinson as young Frank – as well as a set of new featurettes that go on to explain the connection between the Walt Disney himself and Tomorrowland (which takes its name from one of Disney’s planned parks).
Tomorrowland stars George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson. It is scheduled for release on May 22, 2015.
