Update From Editor Peter Sciretta: Disney has released two new Tomorrowland videos focusing on some of the characters in the upcoming film. The videos profile Casey (Britt Robinson) and Athena (Raffey Cassidy). We have updated this story to include both Tomorrowland character videos after the jump.
I get the sense Tomorrowland is a movie I’m going to want to live in after we see it. Thankfully, Disney has made that pretty easy. Not all of it is easy to find, but they’ve done a great job at hiding clues to the history of the film across all kinds of media: books, theme parks, television and more.
Basically, it seems like some of the most famous and brilliant minds in history once came together to build a magical, futuristic place for humanity to continue to thrive in peace. But, something happened, and now that place is hidden. How was this place, called Tomorrowland, created? Why is it hidden? How can it be saved?
Lots of these questions are sure to be revealed on May 22 when the Brad Bird film hits theaters. Below, there’s a video detailing this history of Plus Ultra, the group of famous thinkers who combined efforts to create Tomorrowland. There’s also a new TV spot showing some of the connections between this movement and the events in the movie. Check it all out below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Lego is the biggest, most successful toy company in the world. But it wasn’t always that way. Just a decade ago, the company was in danger of failing. New leadership had to redirect and refocus the brand before it began to soar. Then, with last year’s release of The Lego Movie, Lego was brought to the mainstream in a way it never had been before.
Before that even happened, filmmakers Kief Davidson and Daniel Junge were on the ground floor. They were documenting the world of Lego for a film now called A Lego Brickumentary (It was formerly called Beyond the Brick: A Lego Brickumentary.) The film hit the festival circuit last year but is now set for nationwide release, both in theaters and online, on July 31. The first trailer for the film, which is narrated by Jason Bateman, is now online and it’s a must watch not only for fans of Lego, but people who just don’t get the appeal, which is surely lots of you.

Let’s face it, the dinosaurs may not be the biggest factor in convincing people to head to the theater for Jurassic World. The biggest factor in selling the June 12 sequel is our memories of the first time. That is, the first time we sat down, whether it be at home or in a theater, to watch Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic Park.
That nostalgic memory is the focus of a new Jurassic World featurette. Stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins talk about their first experiences with the film, as does director Colin Trevorrow. Spielberg himself even pops in to chat about it. There’s some new footage too, but it’s mostly stuff from the latest trailer.
Below, see the new Jurassic World featurette and read my memories of seeing Jurassic Park. Read More »

When the last Terminator Genisys trailer came out, I avoided it. Everyone said there was a big reveal within that they considered to be a massive spoiler. But then the new poster for the film is revealed and there it is, literally front and center. Could this seemingly huge franchise-changing reveal really be so insignificant that it’s cool to put in the middle of the poster? Apparently.
Which is a long way to say, there’s a new Terminator Genisys poster out now. It goes along with a new TV spot that shows a bit more of a scene from the first Terminator, which is in this film, and then ends with that big, bad maybe-it’s-not-a spoiler. See the new Terminator Genisys poster and TV spot below. Read More »
