Hey, they made the “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride into a movie, right? Now Disney is giving us the big-screen version of one of their theme parks!
That’s the cynical view, of course, one that you would dismiss once you saw the trailer:
They’ve got the combined talents of George Clooney and Brad Bird working on this one, folks!
Here’s the skinny on the film according to Disney:
“From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s riveting, mystery adventure “Tomorrowland,” 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.
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.”
(Yeah, Damon Lindlelof also got his paws on it, but hopefully there won’t be any vague, head-scratch inducing climaxes in the film.)
