Tomorrowland (George Cloony / Hugh Laurie) | Anatomy of a Movie

AOM hosts Sara Stretton, Demetri Panos, and Marisa Serafini discuss Tomorrowland. Tomorrowland (titled Disney Tomorrowland: A World Beyond in the United Kingdom) is a 2015 American science fiction mystery adventure film directed by Brad Bird, and co-written and produced by Bird and Damon Lindelof. The film stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, Thomas Robinson, Tim McGraw, Kathryn Hahn, and Keegan-Michael Key. The film tells the story of a former boy genius (Clooney) and a young girl (Robertson), who travel to an ambiguous dimension known as “Tomorrowland”, where their actions directly affect the world and themselves. Walt Disney Pictures originally announced the film under the working title 1952, and later retitled it to Tomorrowland, after the futuristic themed land found at Disney theme parks. Bird and Lindelof’s screenplay was heavily influenced by Walt Disney‘s optimistic philosophy of innovation and utopia, such as his conceptual vision for the planned community known as EPCOT. Tomorrowland was released in conventional and IMAX formats on May 22, 2015, and was the first theatrical film to be released in Dolby Vision. Upon its release, the film received mixed reviews from critics and performed below expectations at the box office.
