George Clooney and Britt Robertson Get Futuristic in Tomorrowland Teaser Trailer

Posted on October 11, 2014

Here is the first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Disney film, Tomorrowland. George Clooney and Britt Robertson star in the futuristic adventure project that has been cloaked in secrecy until fans got a peek at New York Comic Con.

Clooney plays Frank , a brilliant scientist and inventor who is bitter and disillusioned by his experiences in life. Britt Robertson plays Casey, a young teen with scientific talents and a thirst for adventure. When Casey is leaving a police station (for an unstated infraction and apparently a night in jail) she is handed a Tomorrowland pin which has been put in her belongings. She touches it and is immediately transported to an amazing world.

Casey must hunt down Frank to help her discover the mystery of Tomorrowland and change the future. The details of the film have not been released, but Clooney showed up at Comic-Con when he sas supposed to be on his honeymoon. He convinced the powers that be to show more footage than is in the trailer. Casey and Frank get attacked by futuristic, realistic looking robots and must use some quick thinking to escape.

The script was written by Damon Lindelof (Lost) and Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol). Lindelof, Brad Bird and Jeffrey Chernov produced the film and Bird directed it. Lindelof said that the film doesn't directly mention Walt Disney, but his love of the future, science and space are reflected in the film. In 1955 Tomorrowland opened as an exhibit at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Tomorrowland showed a futuristic version of the year 1986.

The film also stars Hugh Laurie (House) as the brilliant scientist David Nix. At Comic-Con Laurie wouldn't say much about his character other than he was good. Kathryn Hahn, Judy Greer, and Taylor Gagnon also star. Taylor Gagnon is an amazing actor. He plays the child robot Ethan on the sf show Extant, which just got renewed for a second season. Halle Berry plays his mom. We assume he's playing a human in the movie, but he is really great at playing a robot, so who knows. Tomorrowland will be released in the U.S. on May 22, 2015.
