Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as "Tomorrowland."Written by

Although heavily shown in trailers that Walt Disney and Disneyland are connected to Tomorrowland, the movie plot doesn't mention the connection. This is not accurate. Disneyland is mentioned in the early scenes when young Frank first visits Tomorrowland and sneaks onto the It's a Small World' ride. You can also quickly see a park employee dressed in a costume as the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland (1951) See more »
When Casey is outside at Frank's house in the rain looking at the satellite dishes and following the cables, her jacket is unzipped, then zipped up, then unzipped again. At one point the jacket is zipped up and soaking wet, other times the brown jacket and the green one underneath appear dry. See more »
At the end of the closing credits, the Tomorrowland pin appears. A hand reaches out to touch the pin from the side of the screen and they both vanish. See more »
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
I like this movie, well to say that I mean I like the movie up until they get to Tommorowland. The movie up until they get to Tommorowland is richly original and fun to watch. I thought it was cool seeing our characters traveling across the country and encountering sci-if stuff contrast to the homely city location. It was just such a fresh take on sci if and I was loving how it looked, but then we do go to Tomorrowland and it sucks. That's when things are confusing, and don't really excite as much as the first 60-70 minutes. I'm not saying removing the arrival to Tomorrowland would've made a more interesting movie, the movie just needed to make the Tomorrowland segment more interesting. But for the film they are getting across I liked it fairly well. After all this movie's heart is in the right place with a hopeful message.
Overall: Not as great as Pirates of the Caribbean, but not as terrible as The Country Bears either.
