George Clooney from Tomorrowland

The first footage that screened from Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland sounded wonderful. The teaser trailer was great, and now a third piece of footage has been screened. Over the weekend, the D23 Destination D event in Florida (which we first told you about not long ago) revealed a brand new scene from Tomorrowland. The scene takes place at the World’s Fair in 1964 and stars the young version of George Clooney‘s character. You can read about the Tomorrowland World’s Fair scene below.

In addition, there’s some minor controversy surrounding the film as Oscar-winning sound designer and editor Walter Murch was reportedly let go from the production. Read more about Tomorrowland below. Read More »

DAMON LINDELOF, BRAD BIRD

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 »
