Walt Disney Pictures has been impressively stingy when it comes to revealing many details about Tomorrowland, its upcoming film about a mysterious place where science has made the fantastic all too real, but a teaser the studio released for the movie’s next trailer (which is the way things are done now, apparently) suggests that we may learn more about the film during this weekend’s Super Bowl.
The 10-second preview sets up a brief sequence of footage with George Clooney asking, “What if there was a place where nothing was impossible?” What follows is a series of scenes in which star Britt Robertson is seen touching a small pin that instantly transports her to the sci-fi city filled with jetpack-wearing people zipping about through the sky and all manner of architecture that would seem at home in an episode of The Jetsons.
Directed by two-time Oscar winner Brad Bird, Tomorrowland follows a former boy-genius inventor (Clooney) and a curious teenager (Robertson) as they attempt to unearth the secrets of the enigmatic place known as “Tomorrowland.”
The film was written by Bird and Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof, and hits theaters May 22. The full Super Bowl trailer will air at some point during the game on Sunday.
