Glorious Sci-Fi Landscapes and Fighting Robots Star in New Trailer for Disney's Tomorrowland
A new trailer for Disney's Tomorrowland has just come online and it brings with it a ton of new footage, including our first look at Hugh Laurie's character and some extended looks at the mysterious world which director Brad Bird has created.
Whenever Disney is involved, you can always expect some beautiful visuals, but golly, this Tomorrowland trailer is something else. There really is something for everyone in this trailer. The futuristic city is a perfect blend of Sci-Fi and Fantasy and a lot of the technology looks beautifully steampunk, but it is all contrasted brilliantly by those glorious corn field scenes.
The other exciting aspect to the trailer is the extended look we get at George Clooney's character. When Disney debuted their Tomorrowland footage at last year's New York Comic Con Clooney's character came across as something of a crotchety old man, but this latest trailer proves he's going to be a lot more than that. It's also nice to see Hugh Laurie's character, who appears to be some form of futuristic tour guide.
Tomorrowland hits theaters on May 22nd, just in time for the long memorial day weekend. Check out a new poster for the movie and the official plot synopsis below.
