There's still a lot of mystery surrounding this summer's sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland from director Brad Bird, but it's a Disney film, and it has direct ties to the theme park attraction of the same name that has been around for decades since Walt Disney was still alive. Now two new featurettes dive into the fascination that Disney himself had with the innovations of the future, and the ideas he had in order to make civilization more efficient, not to mention the narrative in the film as well. And the footage also shows that there's a lot of inspiration from the past with regards to what we'll see on the big screen next month. Here's the two featurettes for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland straight from Disney: You can also still watch the most recent Us trailer for Brad Bird's Tomorrowland right here. Tomorrowland is directed by Brad Bird (of The Incredibles, »

From Disney comes two-time Oscar winner Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland, a riveting mystery adventure starring Academy Award winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), 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.

George Clooney, director Brad Bird and screenwriter Damon Lindelof explain how Walt Disney's vision for the future inspired their upcoming sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland, arriving in theaters May 22, in a new preview. This featurette includes archive footage of Walt Disney himself, explaining his ideas for what the future could be like, several decades before notions of mass transit, robotics and even space travel were fully realized. The first Tomorrowland theme park opened at Disneyland in 1955, with Damon Lindelof saying that he always though of the attraction as "science-fact," as opposed to science-fiction.

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.
From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.
Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

The duo soon learn that decisions made in the mystical Tomorrowland can have dire consequences on the people of earth.
The long-gestating project is loosely based on the popular Disneyland theme park attraction of the same name, which opened back in 1955. Disney's new television spot includes whizzing monorails, which are a staple of Disneyland.

From the minds of Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof, there is no doubt that Disney's "Tomorrowland" will bring both spectacle and mystery. And it's perhaps not a surprise that the film's secrets are still being hidden away for the moment. Speaking with EW, Linedelof underscores the magical qualities of the titular destination. Read More: Reported Details Of Brad Bird 7 Damon Lindelof's 'Tomorrowland' Promise Interdimensional Travel, Teenage Girls & Pre-Pubescent Robots “Tomorrowland is designed in such a way that it cannot be discovered by people who are not in possession of an invite,” he said. Meanwhile, in a brand new featurette, George Clooney describes it as a place for "dreamers," and in a new TV spot, he enjoins everyone just to sit back and be "amazed." So we'll do just that on May 22nd. Watch the videos below, along with some new international posters. »

The Leftovers garnered mixed reactions when it debuted last summer on HBO. It was a sometimes odd, sometimes uneven and often times brilliant take on the aftermath of an event known as 'The Departure', which can basically be described as the biblical Rapture. The show comes from Creator Damon Lindelof and executive producer Tom Perotta, who will return for The Leftovers Season 2. Some big changes are in store for the series, as it prepares for its return. We heard back in December that half the cast would be cut, and the location would change. Now, TVLine confirms that production is moving to Austin Texas, as the action shifts itself away from the fictional setting of Mapleton, New York as seen in The Leftovers Season 1. Now, the story will be set in an unspecified Texas city.
As reported in December, almost half of the original cast won't return for these new episodes. »
Changes are afoot for The Leftovers Season 2. The first season of the HBO series was an odd, uneven, and sometimes brilliant stretch of episodes about the aftermath of “The Departure” (ie. The Rapture). Creator Damon Lindelof and executive producer Tom Perotta (who wrote the source material) put together a wonderfully different kind of drama series with standout turns from stars Justin Theroux and Carrie Coon, and while it didn’t necessarily light up the ratings or set the world on fire, I was happy to see the series swing for the fences, and I'm eager to see where things might go in the second season. We caught wind in December that some major changes were in store for The Leftovers Season 2, including dropping half its cast and possibly changing locations. Now TV Line confirms that the second season will move production to Austin, Texas, shifting the onscreen setting from the fictional Mapleton, »

In case you were failing to grasp the subtexts of Tomorrowland from the trailers, and I suppose they were dazzling enough that you might be, this new featurette allows the filmmakers to spell them out for you.
A glorified trailer, really, but one designed to tell you “Look, it’s not just flashing lights.”
Unpicking Tomorrowland and trying to get to grips with the politics of its futurism should be a lot of fun, and/or launch a hundredweight of broadsheet think pieces. I, for one, can’t wait.

Though “Hollywood” is still trying to make it start earlier and earlier each year, May is the traditional beginning of the Summer Movie Season. This year gets started in a big way with Avengers: Age of Ultron (plus a new Star Wars trailer), but refreshingly the month looks to offer a rather eclectic mix of blockbuster films. Mad Max: Fury Road looks to be an insane R-rated thrill ride, Pitch Perfect 2 promises to be a laugh riot, and then there’s something that’s all too rare in this climate: an original sci-fi film. Tomorrowland is directed by Brad Bird and co-written by Bird and Damon Lindelof, and offers a unique take on the sci-fi genre by turning a Disney attraction into a reality in a unique way. A new featurette for the film finds Bird, Lindelof, and star George Clooney discussing the secrets behind the movie while also touting its originality. »

I have moments from the last 17 years of doing this job that I regret, and in most cases, it's simply a matter of degrees. I try to approach most things from a place of no malice at all, but occasionally, even the best intentions land completely wrong. The way I typically realize I've made someone upset is when I get the e-mail or the phone call saying, "Oh, man, did you make me upset." I have enormous fondness for Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof, as well as the cast of "Tomorrowland," and when I wrote a piece in which I broke some of the first details of the story, I wasn't trying to ruin the film. I was just excited to finally have some sense of what they were up to. I definitely irked them, though, and since then, I've done my best to just wait until Disney put out »

There aren't many 2015 movies shrouded in as much secrecy as Disney's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but possibly the most secretive project after that would be another Disney adventure, Tomorrowland. The studio released a new featurette for Tomorrowland today, which slowly peels back the mysterious layers of this story, including new footage which shows how a young girl named Casey (Britt Robertson) ends up discovering the strange world of Tomorrowland. The featurette includes interviews with George Clooney, who describes Tomorrowland as, "a place where the ideas of science and exploration are able to grow, to make the world better."
We also hear from Britt Robertson, director Brad Bird and screenwriter Damon Lindelof in this preview, which includes plenty of never-before-seen footage, including Casey's first interaction with George Clooney's Frank Walker. We also see how Casey first acquires a mysterious pin while retrieving her property from a police station, »
If you're a fan of the show, you know why: It's all thanks to Hurley's (Jorge Garcia) lottery numbers -- for the unfamiliar, those would be 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 -- which just so happen to coincide with today's date, 4/8/15. And for an extra kicker, the last four numbers align as the (military) time 4:23:42 p.m.
The numbers were first introduced back in the 18th episode of the show's first season (which aired on March 2, 2005), explaining that Hurley played them and hit the lotto jackpot -- and was immediately beset by bad luck. It turns out that those numbers were significant to the island, too, with Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) tasked with punching them into a computer hidden in The Hatch every 108 minutes.
The sequence popped up throughout the series, »

At this point we know the basics of Tomorrowland thanks to the film’s marketing campaign, but it’s also quite clear that there are loads of story components that will have far more to offer beyond what we’ve seen in the TV spots and trailers. The movie is directed by Brad Bird and stars George Clooney and Britt Robertson as Frank and Casey. He’s a disillusioned former boy-genius and she’s “a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity” and together, they must go on a mission to an enigmatic place known only as Tomorrowland. Walt Disney Pictures just posted advance press notes that reveal new story and character details. We wanted to share a select few with you, but be warned, there are some plot spoilers in the mix.

Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland may exist as a mystery wrapped in an enigma at this time, but as we gear up to the sci-fi flick’s anticipated summer release, we’re beginning to learn more and more about what the director has cooked up and, in particular, the mystery behind the titular, utopian wonderland.
Case in point: this new-fangled international trailer. Given that Bird’s résumé The Incredibles and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, the filmmaker has displayed an astute eye for stunning visual and indeed practical effects, making Tomorrowland the perfect candidate for his next outing.
The film orbits around Britt Robertson’s Casey, a young, optimistic teen with a burning curiosity for the unexplainable. Upon discovering an unusual pin that essentially acts as a conduit, whisking her away to the titular area, Casey soon sets out to discover the truth behind the enigmatic landmark. Although, it isn’t long before she discovers that, »

“Mad Men” begins its final stretch of episodes on Sunday night at 10 on AMC, and we asked a handful of TV critics, as well as several TV producers (some of whom have had experience ending their own shows) to predict what might happen when all is said and done for Don Draper and friends. Some took the assignment very seriously. Some opted for the ridiculous. Some fell in between. Damon Lindelof (Co-creator, "Lost"/"The Leftovers") There is a knock on Pete's door. He answers. There's a ten year old child standing there in a suit. "Hello, father..." he says, "I just want you to know that I am going to write a television show one day. And my portrayal of you will Not be flattering." Pete runs his hand through his receding hairline, shaken, but imperious. "What's your name, little boy?" The bastard son glares at his father, "Matthew." he says. »
