In case you missed the announcement yesterday, the first trailer for the film Tomorrowland was released and we have it for you right here.
Just in case you are not aware of this film, or maybe you have heard of it but not sure what it’s about, here is the synopsis of the film:
From director Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol) and writer Damon Lindelof (Lost), Tomorrowland follows the character of Casey Newton (actress Britt Robertson), a Florida-girl who appears to have gotten herself into a bit of trouble, as the trailer begins in a police station where Casey is collecting her things from an officer on duty. Among her stuff, she discovers a strange pin with a “T” on it that she has never seen before. When touched, the pin seems to transport her to a gorgeous futuristic world with gleaming towers off in the distance–but only while she is connected to it. As she journeys to find out more, she’ll cross paths with Frank Walker (George Clooney), whose part in this is still a mystery all of its own.
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.
Now I will admit, when I first heard of the film I really didn’t know what it was going to be about and my interest was pretty low. Now that I’ve seen the trailer, I have every intention of seeing this when it debuts on May 22, 2015. May is already going to be a big month for Disney, The Avengers: Age of Ultron debuts on the 1st of May in 2015, so I hope this film doesn’t get overlooked because of that. If you recall, in 2013, Monsters University was all the hype and it was promoted everywhere. The Lone Ranger also was released the day after Monsters University and did poorly at the box office because I feel it wasn’t promoted as much. I think since Johnny Depp was in the film, they thought that would pack in the crowds, but unforunately it didn’t work. Most I know who saw the film, thought it was good but it was overshadowed by others that came out at the same time. Now Tomorrowland comes out with George Clooney, a big name, but I think they are going to have to promote this film a lot so that it doesn’t get overshadowed by The Avengers. This is just my opinion and I don’t mean to stir up controversy in anyway.
As more news comes out about Tomorrowland, we will be sure to pass it along to all of you.
