“Tomorrowland” Teaser Trailer Arrives

It was easy to forget about this one. It’s deep, deep in the Mystery Box. A technique writer Damon Lindelof surely adopted from JJ Abrams.

Well now it’ll be impossible to forget about this one. Mark the calendar: May 22, 2015. That’s a full three weeks after Avengers: Age of Ultron, we’ll be in dire need of another piece of earnest, heart-felt spectacle. This looks like it will do nicely.

Directed by the exceptional Brad Bird and written by Damon Lindelof, Tomorrowland has enormous promise. I only hope that Bird’s natural mastery of narrative can bring up the deep flaws of Lindelof’s writing. Together they could make a powerful team.

Official Synopsis:

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.
