Teaser Trailer for TOMORROWLAND

Director Brad Bird's next live action feature, Tomorrowland, has been brewing for some time and now, on the heels of a New York Comic Con panel, the first teaser trailer has premiered. The screenplay, from Lost co-creator and head scribe Damon Lindelof, has been kept under wraps for the better part of what feels like forever. I am eagerly anticipating the film not only for the reasons that Bird has done nothing but prove himself time and time again (The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) but also because of Lindelof. While I know I'm in the minority I appreciate most of his work and his approach to mystery (seriously, check out his commentary on Prometheus). Lindelof certainly knows how to bring an audience into a world so let's just hope he has worked on nailing the landing this time. Bird and co-writer Jeff Jensen also helped with the script and cite Close Encounters of the Third Kind as a point of reference while also stating that the film is not heavily plot driven. In interviews Lindelof refers to it as a pure discovery movie. This is rather exciting as it clearly presents an interesting world to be discovered and that it will actually take the time to explore that world rather than allowing itself to become wrapped up in a standard plot is really refreshing. This first look is certainly a teaser in the most cryptic sense of the word but it perfectly sets up the intrigue we should all be left to wonder about until next summer. Tomorrowland stars George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie, Tim McGraw, Kathryn Hahn, Judy Greer, Keegan-Michael Key and opens on May 22, 2015.



Synopsis: Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as “Tomorrowland.”
