Disney and director Brad Bird have been keeping their cards very close to their chest about Tomorrowland. However New York Comic Con is where they’re chosen to start the hype, keeping the intrigue by giving us a poster, pics and a teaser trailer that give us glimpses but don’t show us too much.
We also have an official plot synopsis, which reads: ‘From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s riveting, mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” 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.’
As you can see from the teaser, it looks like it could be pretty cool. Writer Damon Lindelof has compared the film to Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of a Third Kind, saying that it is all about discovery. If you’re wondering what this has to do with the part of Disneyland of the same name, the movie apparently suggests that it may have been a trip Walt Disney took to the enigmatic Tomorrowland that inspired his park.
The film is due out May 2015. Take a look at a couple of pics and the teaser trailer below.
