It’s one of the most mysterious projects to be coming out in 2015, and it will be in theaters smack dab in the middle of one of the busiest “Summer of Sequels” in the increasingly long, sad Hollywood history of franchise dependence. Originality is hard to come by in Tinseltown these days, and certainly recent evidence (Jupiter Ascending and Chappie) seems to indicate that people would rather trust the devil they know when it comes to high-profile sci-fi/fantasy films, but can Tomorrowland buck that trend? Disney is hoping so, even though they’re set to make it rain in 2015 with The Avengers and Star Wars alone, and the studio’s looking to convince fans further that Brad Bird’s latest film is definitely worth checking out when it’s released next month.
Disney has released a triad of treats to further indulge the curious about what Tomorrowland is about exactly. First up, the new (and perhaps final) trailer offers an extended look at the first meeting between Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) and Frank Walker (George Clooney) as Casey tries to discover the meaning of the mysterious ‘T’ pin that somehow ended up in her possession. It looks like a huge action sequences where Clooney’s Walker uses weird science to fight… robot goons? Yup, still no idea what this movie’s about. How often can you say that about a major release?
Check out the new trailer below.
Disney also released some news for anyone looking to get a closer look at the film before it’s released later in May. If you should happen to seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron in IMAX, then you’ll also get a look at some new Tomorrowland footage.
Additionally, a special presentation of the film, featuring more than six minutes of footage to be introduced by director Brad Bird, will screen exclusively in IMAX® theatres domestically and in select international markets beginning May 1. The extended first look of Tomorrowland will screen directly prior to Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and will play for the duration of that film’s run in IMAX.
Finally, check out the new poster for Tomorrowland.
Tomorrowland is in theaters everywhere on May 22.
