New Tomorrowland Trailer Features Ray Guns and Evil Cyborgs
Well, this is different. So far, Tomorrowland has seemed like a fairly straightforward mash-up of Wizard of Oz, Pirates of the Caribbean, and every YA adaptation that celebrates a teenager's "specialness" that will save the world. But now, in an unexpected twist, we can add Terminator to that list?



All of the promotional materials for Tomorrowland up to this point have been extremely fantasy-heavy, focusing on the land of wish fulfillment that is Tomorrowland. There have been hints of advanced technology, and the plot hinges on speculative science, but before now there haven't been any purely sci-fi tropes. But this trailer changed all that, as apparently one of the villains (or more likely, the villain's henchman) is an evil cyborg that tries to shoot George Clooney and Britt Robertson with a ray gun. It doesn't get much more sci-fi than that.

Tomorrowland also stars Hugh Laurie, Raffey Cassidy, Kathryn Hahn, and (randomly) Tim McGraw. It opens in theaters on May 22.
