The teaser trailer for Disney’s top-secret ‘Tomorrowland,’ starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie and Britt Robertson, is revealed at New York Comic Con.
The first look of Disney’s live-action adventure Tomorrowland was revealed at the New York Comic Con today. While attendees likely expected to be the first to see scenes from the shrouded project, they were not anticipating an appearance by the film’s star, George Clooney, who was not scheduled to appear. The Academy Award-winner crashed the films panel, tanned and charming-as-ever less than two weeks after his glamorous wedding in Venice.
The still somewhat cryptic synopsis reads: 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 teaser trailer opens with Casey being unexpectedly transported to another world when she touches a seemingly normal pin. In a voiceover, Frank describes it as “a secret place where nothing is impossible… A miraculous place where you could actually change the world.” And even though he’s not looking at the camera, when Frank asks, “Do you want to go?” it’s the viewer that is inclined to say yes.
The film is director Brad Bird’s second live-action feature, as he was previously at the helm for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. His animated filmography includes Ratatouille, The Incredibles and Iron Giant, for which he also penned the scripts. Co-writing with Bird for this project is Lost writer and co-creator, Damon Lindelof, and Entertainment Weekly contributor, Jeff Jensen.
The film is one of the studio’s theme park adaptations, designed after the futuristic section of its Disneyland and Disney World parks. “What Hogwarts is to magic, Tomorrowland is to science: They are both easy to find if you are a wizard and very difficult to find if you’re a Muggle,” Lindelof told Entertainment Weekly. “Walt Disney is not a character in our movie, but he is referenced as having some involvement in this mysterious place called Tomorrowland, as a huge futurist and aficionado of space travel, rocketry, cities of the future, and space travel.”
The film also stars Hugh Laurie as scientist David Nix, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson. It’s scheduled for release May 22, 2015.
