This coming weekend, audiences will feast their eyes on Disney’s live-action sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland, from The Incredibles director Brad Bird. Considering the onslaught of hype and buzz there has been for anticipated movies this year from Disney-owned Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm, it’s kind of refreshing to have an original sci-fi flick such as Tomorrowland hitting the big screen this summer. However, writer Damon Lindelof just revealed that there was a Tomorrowland credits scene pitch that would have featured a pretty blatant tie-in to both Marvel and Star Wars. Find out about the Tomorrowland credits scene below! Read More »

The curtain has almost been fully pulled back from Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland. After the full trailer showed some impressive visuals, an international trailer dropped some major details, including the film’s connection to the Walt Disney theme parks. At this point, most of us have more than enough information on the family sci-fi fantasy.
If you need more though, Disney is happy to oblige. New press notes on the film have a ton of interesting tidbits on the main characters, the locations, themes and the behind the scenes inspirations for the film. Read 10 new Tomorrowland movie details below. Read More »
In the past few years, few movies have been as secretive as Tomorrowland. Directed by Brad Bird and co-written by Damon Lindelof, almost everything about the sci-fi Disney adventure has been mysterious. Is Disneyland part of it? What’s the 1952 box? Who is The Optimist? How does The World’s Fair fit in? Do Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison play a role? Speculation ran rampant.
The first teaser trailer gave fans a bit of an idea of the story and now, a second and likely final Tomorrowland trailer gives us even more. It’s the story of a young girl (Britt Robertson) who meets a scientist (George Clooney) to travel to a secret world called Tomorrowland. The films opens May 22, and you can see the latest Tomorrowland trailer below. Read More »
The first season of The Leftovers ended the same way Tom Perrotta‘s book did, with a powerful, potentially hopeful image we won’t spoil here. But what we can say is that all of the source material for the show is gone. So what are the producers to do for a second season? It seems The Leftovers season 2 will change settings from its quaint upstate New York town to a yet-to-be announced location. Plus, while the main cast will return, most of the supporting cast will not. Read more about The Leftovers season 2 below. Read More »

That scene isn’t available online, but lucky for you we have an in-depth summary right here. After the jump, get the Tomorrowland NYCC footage recap, plus highlights from the Tomorrowland NYCC panel featuring Clooney, Robertson, director Brad Bird, writer Damon Lindelof, and actors Hugh Laurie and Raffey Cassidy.

Since last year’s D23 Expo, director Brad Bird has been very quiet about his sci-fi Disney fantasy, Tomorrowland. The film stars George Clooney, was co-written by Damon Lindelof, and has been as secretive about its production as that other Disney sci-fi movie. Those flood gates are ready to open though as Tomorrowland will have presentations in the coming months at New York Comic-Con and Destination D.
But that’s not all. Leading up to Tomorrowland‘s May 2015 release date, a prequel book called Before Tomorrowland is in the works and one website believes they’ve found an early look at it. What do the images show? An epic meeting of the minds that could explain the alternate dimensions in Tomorrowland, as well as a tie into Walt Disney. Check out your possible first look at the Tomorrowland movie history below. Read More »
At HBO, shows are sometimes given a new season the day after they premiere. The network looks at reviews, buzz, and ratings, and can immediately decide to get behind the creator’s vision for at least one more year. That’s the best-case scenario. Other shows, ones which don’t hit a home run right off, might take a few weeks. For The Leftovers, co-created by the always-controversial Damon Lindelof and author Tom Perrotta, it took seven weeks.
No matter, though, as HBO has just renewed The Leftovers for a second season. It’s a move that’s sure to please fans of the show and leave non-fans scratching their heads. I put myself in the first category and we can discuss The Leftovers season 2, and watch a “Catch Up” trailer, below. Read More »
Years have passed since Lost ended, and Damon Lindelof finally has a new TV show. That show is called The Leftovers, based on the book by series co-producer Tom Perrotta, and it premiered on HBO Sunday night.
In an instant, two percent of the world’s populate goes missing. The people who vanish have nothing in common. There’s no rhyme or reason, they’re just gone. Three years later, in a small New York town, we meet several characters still dealing with the emotional, spiritual and logistic effects of this unfathomable the event. And in classic Lindelof fashion, the first episode is scene after scene of intriguing mystery. Dozens of questions are posed, starting intriguing scenarios, introducing characters, and more. It was a polarizing, but in my mind fantastic start to what’s sure to be an interesting show.
Don’t have HBO? You can now watch the The Leftovers pilot for free online. Check it out below. Read More »
