Brad Bird’s follow up to the excellent MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL has been shrouded in mystery ever since its announcement. TOMORROWLAND takes its title from the popular Disney theme park ride of the same name, no doubt in the hopes of replicating the success of previous Disney theme park-based film series PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN.
The film was previously set to be released on 12th December 2014 but has now been moved back in order to take the spot that was held by STAR WARS: EPISODE VII which has been revealed to hit theaters December 18 2015. As a result Brad Bird’s TOMORROWLAND will now be released on 22nd May 2015 just three weeks after Disney’s other high profile release AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. TOMORROWLAND also joins JURASSIC WORLD, ASSASSINS CREED, TED 2, TERMINATOR 5 and BATMAN VS SUPERMAN in the increasingly crowded summer of 2015.
Although we don’t know an awful lot about the plot of the film you can see the short synopsis that has been released 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 Tomorrowland’.
TOMORROWLAND stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson and Judy Greer, the project is currently filming and I could not be more excited after Bird’s previous beauties THE IRON GIANT, THE INCREDIBLES and of course MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL.
