If you weren’t already excited for Brad Bird’s new sci-fi adventure, this action-packed clip from Tomorrowland should help.

Disney has dropped a new clip focusing in on a scene we’ve already glimpsed in the trailers: the attack on George Clooney’s house, when a team of agents bust in and try to capture him and co-star Britt Robertson. The scene looks like pure sci-fi spectacle, with a nice mix of practical effects and claustrophobic action. There are also some nice sci-fi touches thanks to the weapons and Clooney’s own defense measures.

Tomorrowland stars Clooney as jaded former boy-genius Frank and Robertson as optimistic teen Casey, who embark on a dangerous mission to uncover the secrets of the mysterious city of Tomorrowland. The film itself comes from a bevy of sci-fi alums, with the screenplay written by Damon Lindelof (Lost) and Brad Bird (The Incredibles). Bird is also directing, which should be reason enough to get most genre fans at least a little geeked out.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:

Tomorrowland opens May 22. Will you be checking it out?
