Disney has just dropped the first teaser trailer for next summer’s Tomorrowland. The highly-secretive film pairs George Clooney with director Brad Bird (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) in a story from Damon Lindelof (LOST).
In the spot we see Britt Robertson being released from a detention centre. As she’s handed back her belongings, she is given a pin with the letter ‘T’ on it. It’s not hers she says, but when she touches it she’s immediately transported to a field that’s nestled beside a futuristic-looking city.
“What if there was a place?” George Clooney teases in a voiceover. “A secret place, where nothing was impossible. A miraculous place where you could actually change the world.”
The clip fades to black, and then we get a glimpse of Cloony’s Frank Walker. “You wanna go?” he asks. The title card comes up before a split second bit of action.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lindelof hinted that film’s sci-fi leanings. “What Hogwarts is to magic, Tomorrowland is to science: They are both easy to find if you are a wizard and very difficult to find if you’re a Muggle,” Lindelof tells the magazine. “Walt Disney is not a character in our movie, but he is referenced as having some involvement in this mysterious place called Tomorrowland, as a huge futurist and aficionado of space travel, rocketry, cities of the future, and space travel.”
Tomorrowland opens May 22, 2015.
