‘Tomorrowland’ Trailer Sees Super Bowl Debut

New teaser for Brad Bird’s live-action feature, ‘Tomorrowland,’ airs during Sunday’s Super Bowl game.

Disney has debuted a new teaser for Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland that first aired during Sunday’s Super Bowl game

The first teaser, released in October, saw a teen, played by Britt Robertson, instantly transported to a futuristic landscape upon touching a souvenir pin, all under a George Clooney voiceover talking up a “secret place where nothing is impossible.” The new teaser uses a slightly longer version of that same narration, but contains a considerable amount of new footage in its 32 seconds, including glimpses of complex steampunk machinery and a futuristic cityscape:

Featuring a screenplay by Lost writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof and 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.

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.

Alongside Clooney, 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.

Produced by Damon Lindelof, Bird and Jeffrey Chernov, with John Walker, Brigham Taylor, Jeff Jensen and Bernard Bellew serving as executive producers, Tomorrowland arrives in theaters May 22, 2015.
