While the summer movie season is always jam-packed with sequels and properties that are already well-known, there are always a couple of big movies that don’t have a built in audience trying to hit it big. Tomorrowland is one of those for 2015, as despite being named after a section of Disneyland, it’s a completely original story.
Indeed, many believe Disney’s hope is that if the film is successful it will help that section of the park and spark a complete revamp, rather than the other way around.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘‘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.’
The film is due out May 2015.
