Tomorrowland is lot of fun, which is something Disney excels at, but it's also an attempt to disconnect Disney's retro-future from reality. If you're scratching your head, I get that, but the deal is that we're going to discover that the Walt Disney theme park, Tomorrowland, isn't a vision of the future, the way we always thought it was, but of a utopia on a parallel (or something) world that a secret cabal almost managed to present to us back in 1939, or 1952, depending. Alas, poor future, I knew you well.Still, all that aside, George Clooney as a boy-inventor grown older, and Britt Robertson as a troubled teen on the run look like a great team to take us somewhere dreams can come true. If they can keep one step ahead of the bad guys. Fortunately the film leaves us with the hope that the tagline, "fight for tomorrowland," is a fight we might just be able to win. From official release/information:
