There isn’t much to tease in the teaser trailer for Tomorrowland, the upcoming George Clooney film that was partly shot at the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim, California. In the video above, Britt Robertson’s character picks up a pin and is instantly transported to a cornfield in the mysterious and unknown place called Tomorrowland. We also get a quick glimpse of Clooney as Frank Walker.
After Brad Bird revitalized the Mission Impossible franchise with Ghost Protocol, I’m excited to see what he does with Tomorrowland. His previous films include Ratatouille, The Incredibles, and The Iron Giant, which are all amazing. And Tomorrowland is said to be a very ambitious project about “discovery.”
A full clip from the movie was shown at New York Comic-Con.
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.
Disney’s Tomorrowland comes to theaters May 22, 2015.
