Disney's TomorrowlandWednesday, October 14, 2015
From the magical world of Disney comes an inspiring mystery adventure called Tomorrowland, a place where anything is possible. Starring Academy Award winner George Clooney, the film follows the story of former boy-genius Frank (Clooney) and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teenager full of curiosity. Together, bound by a shared destiny, they embark on an action-packed and danger-filled mission to uncover the secrets of an incredible world of epic imagination.
While I really enjoyed watching George Clooney take on the role of a genius jaded by disillusionment, it was Britt Robertson who really shone in this movie. Why I have never seen her in any other major feature films sure beats me. This girl has talent and I can't wait to see some of her upcoming movies. She almost reminds me of a young Renee Zellweger, only with a lot more spunk.
Another fresh face that will certainly light up many a big screen in the near future is the adorable Raffey Cassidy. This blue-eyed English actress, who you may remember from Snow White and the Huntsman, underwent training in swimming, gymnastics, wirework and martial arts, which becomes evident throughout the movie when her character kicks some serious buttocks.
Featuring a screenplay by Lost writer and co-creator Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, Tomorrowland is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD. Bonus features include:
- Remembering the Future: A Personal Journey Through Tomorrowland With Brad Bird in which the director reflects on the movie as both a celebration of humankind's can-do spirit and a rousing call to action
- Animated Short: The Origins of Plus Ultra
- Casting Tomorrowland
- A Great Big Beautiful Scoring Session
- Deleted Scenes
- And more!
