Like many, we were a bit skeptical when we heard Disney was making a movie loosely based on the popular Tomorrowland area in its theme parks. But folks, this film is looking insanely fun.
Directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles) and co-written by Damon Lindelof (Lost), Tomorrowland basically tells the story of a secret place where the sky’s the limit when it comes to sci-fi spectacles and technology. The story is framed around a young woman played by Britt Robertson (Casey) and a reclusive genius played by George Clooney (Frank), who have to travel to Tomorrowland for ... some reason.
The newest trailer offers up a bit more intel on the plot, but not much. We see Casey track down Frank, and some shady folks chasing after the duo. They must return to Tomorrowland because something has happened, and Casey could hold the key to fixing the problem. But the real story is the visuals — the more we see of this film, the more we're taken by the look of the thing. Just. Wow.
In a recent Facebook chat promoting the film, Bird described the story as "a counter argument against the current obsessions with dystopia." But more than anything, the director promised they're just aiming to create "a good time at the movies." Judging by the trailer, it looks like they might've just nailed it.
Check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think:
Tomorrowland opens May 22.
