Based on the incredibly secretive nature of the project and the talents involved in the film on screen and off, it’s easy to see why ‘Tomorrowland’ is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. At their joint panel with ‘Big Hero 6’ at last year’s New York Comic Con, Disney debuted the first trailer featuring stars George Clooney and Brit Robertson to a very receptive Main Stage audience. And though fans have to wait until May to uncover the entire mystery, those tuning in for the Super Bowl will get a very special sneak peek.
Recently, the Mouse House carved out a coveted spot of advertising for Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof’s upcoming sci-fi adventure during this Sunday’s showoff between the Seattle Seahawks vs. the New England Patriots. Accompanying the announcement came a ten-second teaser for the thirty-second ad that will air in front of TV’s biggest audience of the year. It doesn’t really offer anything new other than a split second of new footage, but it’s a nice appetizer for the main course this weekend. You can see the TV spot below, followed by the official synopsis of the film:
Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank, jaded by disillusionment, and Casey, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, 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.
