Despite going up against the monstrous and the mechanized heavy-hitters during Sunday’s Super Bowl extravaganza — namely Jurassic World and Alan Taylor’s Terminator: Genisys — there was a lot of goodwill emanating from the online community in relation to Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland.
Channeling the awe and wonder found in sci-fi classics such as Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the futuristic flick will center around the titular utopia and in a bid to showcase the rather dazzling environments, Disney has partnered with Google to launch a site known as takemetotomorrowland.com. And now, the first fruits of this partnership have appeared online, after the studios released several new screenshots for Bird’s upcoming science-fiction adventure.
Following Britt Robertson’s protagonist, Casey, Tomorrowland will orbit around her journey as she happens across a rather unusual pin that harbours an innate power of transporting the owner to another dimension. Upon her adventure, she crosses paths with George Clooney’s Frank, a former intellect who has become jaded in hid old age. However, the former boy-genius still retains an unprecedented amount of knowledge about the titular attraction, and the pair soon find themselves tasked with saving their own world.
Alongside Robertson and Clooney for the high-concept flick are House star Hugh Laurie, Thomas Robinson, Tim McGraw, Keegan-Michael Key and Judy Greer. Tomorrowland arrives in theaters on May 22.
From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s “Tomorrowland,” a riveting mystery adventure 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.
