May 24, 2015

Tomorrowland opened to some negative reviews and other positive reviews. I think this is a great movie that has a message that needs to be heard. This week we look at the movie with no spoilers in 10-minutes or less.

 

Director: Brad Bird. He won Oscar’s for Ratatouille and The Incredibles.

Screenwriter: Brad Bird (The Incredibles, The Iron Giant) and Damon Lindelof (Star Trek Into Darkness, Lost (TV Show))

 

Plot

Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank and optimistic teen scientist Casey embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever.

 

Characters

Frank Walker (George Clooney) 

As a kid, Frank Walker encounters Tommorowland at the 1964 World’s Fair. Walt debuted the “It’s a Small World” attraction at the event and while riding on the happiest cruise that ever sailed, Walker is selected to venture into Tomorrowland by a special pin. (See Trailer Below)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhuuVhJrHRQ

Somehow, Walker is returned to our world and become disillusioned about the future. When he encounters Casey Newton, he is thrust back into the fight for tomorrow. Walker is played by two-time Academy Award winning actor and director George Clooney. He is known for his roles as Danny Ocean in Ocean’s 11 and Matt Kowalski in Gravity.

 

Casey Newton (Britt Robertson)

As an inquisitive teen with a knack for fixing things, Casey Walker is obsessed with fixing the future. When she encounters a strange pin that takes her to another dimension, her curiosity is piqued. She sets out on a journey to find anyone and everyone who knows anything about the pin. View her featurette below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCfAjYBz3eA

Newton is played by Britt Robertson. The 25-year-old actress is known for her roles as Aubrey Miller in The First Time and Cara in Dan in Real Life.

 

 

Athena (Raffey Cassidy)

If you blinked, you’d probably miss Athena in the trailers. Aside from the featurette below, you probably wouldn’t even know she exists. However, Athena is the reason Newton and Walker both encounter Tomorrowland. She apparently has a limited number of pins to give out and is looking for someone who can save the future. She is also well-trained in combat and will participate in action scenes, as seen below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSkF56CyYGE

Athena is played by Raffey Cassidy. She played the young Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman and Young Angelique in Dark Shadows.

 

David Nix (Hugh Laurie)

While he is presented as a villain, my gut is telling me the David Nix character will be a little more complex than a standard villain. The Tomorrowland website describes him as an individual who prefers concrete science and data to dreamers.

Nix is played by Hugh Laurie, who is known for roles as Mr. Frederick Little in Stuart Little and Dr. Gregory House on the television show “House M.D.”

 

Movie Clips 

Glad you asked. Brad Bird has kept a tight lid on details for the movie, but little clips of the film have been released.
