Disney has just unveiled its first trailer for "Tomorrowland," a science-fiction adventure story starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson and directed by Brad Bird of Pixar fame, and it looks like it might be one epic adventure.
In the trailer, a teenage girl named Casey Newton (Robertson) is handed her personal belongings by a police officer, but soon finds herself transported to another world by a magical pin.
In this world, the trailer claims, nothing is impossible, and anyone who wanted to could change the world. The trailer gives us a few brief glimpses into the world of "Tomorrowland" and leaves us wanting much more.
The movie is based upon the classic area Disneyland by the same name focusing on sci-fi and technology. Clooney plays Frank Walker, a curmudgeonly grown-up boy genius and failed inventor.
Here's Disney's synopsis of the film:
From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird's "Tomorrowland," a riveting mystery adventure starring Academy Award® winner George Clooney. 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.
Among other reasons to get excited, the great Hugh Laurie (probably most familiar to US viewers from "House") is also in it, as well as Kathryn Hahn of, among other things, "Parks and Recreation," and Damon Lindelof of "Lost" is one of the writers. "Tomorrowland" is set to hit theaters in Australia on May 21, 2015, and will land in the US and UK on May 22. I don't know about you, but I've already got that particular tomorrow marked on my calendar.
