The latest Tomorrowland trailer has bathtub rockets, fighting robots, assassins in creepy masks, and all manner of shifting gears and brass countdown clocks. And it actually tells us a lot more about the movie.
To be fair, Disney’s new action/adventure is still rather vague. We know that the near-future is messed up, nigh apocalyptic, and that the bright and wonderful future is thisclose to being lost forever. So, some sort of retired/exiled inventor (George Clooney) teams up with a troubled kid (Britt Robertson) via teleporting pins and the aforementioned technology to go back to Tomorrowland.
“What you saw,“ Clooney tells Robertson, ”was a place where the best and the brightest people in the world came together to actually change it.” But now it’s in danger—possibly from Hugh Laurie’s shady character—and with every second that ticks away, this future land and tomorrow time becomes less and less of a possbility. Does this movie feature time travel or alternate universes, or just some awesome simulations? Hard to say, but this is the most engaging trailer yet:
Tomorrowland comes to theaters May 22.
