There were lots of brand new movie trailers during the Super Bowl, but one thirty second clip has everyone taking, and asking a zillion questions. That honor goes to George Clooney’s new Disney movie, Tomorrowland.
What’s it about? What’s with that Tomorrowland teleportation pin? Is Clooney here to save the world? The plot of the movie has been kept super hush-hush so far, and this brand new teaser trailer doesn’t give much more away. It clearly focuses on a girl — Britt Robertson, from The Secret Circle and Under the Dome — who happens to stumble into a world of the future where literally anything you imagine is possible. Or, at least that’s what Clooney’s voice over tells us. This world probably isn’t all that it appears to be.
Tomorrowland is directed by Brad Bird, who is no stranger to science fiction or Disney, because he’s the guy behind our favorite Disney superhero family, The Incredibles. The film’s also written by former Lost showrunner, Damon Lindelof and Lost super-fan and Entertainment Weekly writer, Jeff Jenson. So basically, this movie is already a sci-fi fan’s dream. I’m on board.
The one thing the film does not appear to be about is the actual Tomorrowland in Disneyland and Disney World. While an entire movie about Clooney riding Space Mountain would be pretty cool, Clooney riding in a real space ship is probably more exciting.
Check out the teaser trailer here, and start getting excited for this surefire summer blockbuster. It drops in theaters on May 22th.
