At my Super Bowl party there was a ton of eye-rolling and “Really?!”s from people when the trailer for Tomorrowland came on. I totally understand the skepticism. Hell, I even chimed in with “Wait’ll next year, when Wolfgang Peterson’s Teacups 3D comes out!” But, really, I think people need to be more open-minded about this film. First of all, if the success of the first couple of Pirates of The Caribbean flicks is any indication, Disney knows how to turn a theme park attraction into an epic adventure. Secondly, look at the pedigree. You’ve go Brad Bird in the director’s chair- a man who’s never steered us wrong- and you’ve got Hollywood royalty George Clooney.
This thing has the potential to be very, very good.
Anyway, Disney has released some brand spankin’ new concept art for Tomorrowland, which you can check out below:
Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as â€œTomorrowland.â€
Bird has gathered a great team behind the lens with Oscar winning director of photography Claudio Miranda (â€œLife of Pi,â€ â€œThe Curious Case of Benjamin Buttonâ€), production designer Scott Chambliss (â€œStar Trek,â€ â€œStar Trek Into Darkness,â€ â€œCowboys & Aliensâ€), Oscar nominated costume designer Jeffrey Kurland(â€œInception,â€ â€œOceanâ€™s Elevenâ€) and Academy Award-winning editor Walter Murch (â€œThe English Patient,â€ â€œCold Mountainâ€).
Tomorrowland opens on May 22.
