In hot pursuit of yesterday’s first look, Disney has dropped a teaser trailer for sci-fi adventure, Tomorrowland. After being shrouded in secrecy since production began, the excitement surrounding Brad Bird’s latest pic appears to be completely justified.
The film is written by Bird (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) and Prometheus scribe Damon Lindelof, and this first trailer hints at the utopian world of its title, while honing in on Britt Robertson’s leading gal, Casey. Described as a “bright, optimistic teen,” she happens upon a magical pin which transports her to another dimension called Tomorrowland. The location of which is entirely unknown – but who cares when their technology involves jetpacks?!
Along to escort her into this “enigmatic place” is George Clooney’s grizzled former genius, Frank. Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson all co-star.
Thankfully, there are no major reveals in the brief preview. Instead, we see Robertson’s wide-eyed excitement when she touches the pin, which provides a nice connection point for us to dive into the awe and majesty of Tomorrowland. Also, the switch between this world and Tomorrowland is beautifully rendered, as Casey zaps across space and time to a limitless futuristic utopia. Clooney’s ending line is a neat touch as well, as he asks, “You wanna go?” – which is clearly posed more at us, the audience than Robertson.
Feast your eyes on the trailer above and answer us this: do you wanna go?
Tomorrowland arrives in theatres on May 22, 2015.
