Jet Packs, Wide-Eyed Teens And Dazzling Utopias Make Up New Tomorrowland Clips


Answers to Brad Bird’s mysterious, futuristic sci-fi Tomorrowland are right around the corner now that the film is nearing its May 22 release date, but until that time, Disney has ensured your appetite is whet and ready with a string of new TV spots.

While the vast majority of these clips are made up of footage we’ve already seen, the TV spots still harbour some new segments that we’ve yet to come across up until now, including a rather wondrous shot of how the denizens of the titular utopia commute: spoilers, it’s a jet pack.

Starring Britt Robertson as the wide-eyed and adventurous Casey, Tomorrowland will orbit around her journey from discovering a seemingly innocuous pin – emblazioned with a large T, no less – to becoming the city’s only hope of survival. As trite as the ‘chosen one’ trait has become, there’s enough quality on both sides of the camera to warrant the benefit of the doubt. Besides, what other summer blockbuster can attest to having George Clooney and Robertson escape from androids in a bathtub?

Tomorrowland will whisk audiences to Brad Bird’s Disney-inspired utopia when it arrives in theaters on May 22. Until then, be sure to check out the new TV spots to get excited about the sci-fi’s arrival.

From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s riveting, mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” starring Academy Award® winner George Clooney. 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. Featuring a screenplay by “Lost” writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen, “Tomorrowland” promises to take audiences on a thrill ride of nonstop adventures through new dimensions that have only been dreamed of.
