“What did the future used to be?” asks director Brad Bird regarding his latest feature, ‘Tomorrowland.’
Hot off its Comic Con New York presentation, Disney has just released a brand-new U.S. teaser trailer for director Brad Bird’s forthcoming live-action feature, Tomorrowland. Watch it, below:
“We begin our movie asking what did [the future] used to be? What’s good about the future and what’s scary about it? And we wrestle with those things in a slightly mythical way,” Bird commented about the film in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Here’s the 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.
Arriving in theaters May 22, 2015, Tomorrowland is produced by Damon Lindelof, Brad Bird and Jeffrey Chernov, with John Walker, Brigham Taylor, Jeff Jensen and Bernard Bellew serving as executive producers.
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. The film also stars Hugh Laurie as brilliant scientist David Nix, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key and Thomas Robinson.
