TOMORROWLAND Gets an Action-Packed New Trailer
Wow! Last week when the new poster for Brad Bird's original sci-fi film Tomorrowland arrived, I was saying how we still didn't really know that much about the movie despite a few teasers and a Super Bowl spot being released. All of that changed with this morning's brand new trailer (released during a Facebook Q&A session with Bird and writer/producer Damon Lindelof), which shows us the full scope of what Bird has in store for us with this movie - and it looks stellar.
The visual effects look unbelievably good, and this trailer does a great job of giving us a sense of the danger and stakes of this story. I rarely watch trailers twice in a row, but this one is full of so much spectacular imagery that I couldn't help but take a second look. Take note of the design elements taken directly from Disney's Tomorrowland theme park, like the Space Mountain building at 1:11. Oh yeah, and be sure to take note of the giant robots punching each other! George Clooney and Britt Robertson both look excellent in this, and I can't wait to see the full film.
Watch the trailer below. The film debuts on May 22nd, 2015.
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.
Featuring a screenplay by “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.
“Tomorrowland” is produced by Damon Lindelof, Brad Bird and Jeffrey Chernov and directed by Brad Bird, with John Walker, Brigham Taylor, Jeff Jensen and Bernard Bellew serving as executive producers. “Tomorrowland” opens in U.S. theaters on May 22, 2015.
