Tomorrowland (subtitled A World Beyond in some regions) is a 2015 American science-fiction mystery adventure film .
The film stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Kathryn Hahn and Keegan-Michael Key.
In the film, a disillusioned genius inventor and a teenage science enthusiast embark to an ambiguous alternate dimension known as “Tomorrowland” where their actions directly affect the world and themselves.
This $190 million dollar budget film made a box office of $209 million. But not enough to recoup it’s total costs of $330, suggesting $140 was spent on marketing.
It deserves better. The film was written and directed by Brad Bird, responsible for ‘The Iron Giant”, Incredibles, Ratatouille and the upcoming Incredibles 2.
The visual effects are spectacular, great action scenes and George Clooney playing a grumpy old man. And it’s a REAL science fiction story, with proper Sci-Fi themes and ideas.
The only real problem is Hugh Laurie’s character, is he a villain, leader, architect ? It’s not until the end that his real motives are revealed.
