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

The scenes in Tomorrowland showing futuristic white buildings (including the one at the end which resembles a human eye) were shot on location at the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia, Spain, and then enhanced digitally. This neo-futuristic ensemble of buildings was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and built between July 1996 and October 2005 on the old Turia riverbed. The Turia's course had been re-directed to bypass the city after a catastrophic flood in 1957. See more »
Young Casey points out the stars on March 9, 2003m and the sky is very dark. She mentions several stars, including Sirius and Vega. Sirius is a winter star and Vega is a summer star. These stars are on opposite sides of the sky. They can only be seen together in early February, just after sunset. Vega would be setting and Sirius would be rising. Procyon, Capella, and Betelgeuse can all be seen near Sirius. Canopus is near Sirius too, but it's a southern star that can only be seen close to the horizon in North America. Arcturus is closer to Vega and is best seen in in the northern hemisphere in late spring to summer. 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'll keep this relatively short. I'm a 60 year old, very hard to please Brit. This film, pleased me very much indeed. Hence, the 9 out of 10 score. Those who marked this film down, really do require a reality check. I'm not usually given to writing film reviews, but on seeing this film's current low rating - I felt compelled to write something positive, in its favour. The acting and special effects alone, stand on their own. The film, may well be 105 minutes long, but it's 105 of the best spent minutes I've had, this millennium. I won't delve into the film's storyline, as that has been adequately explained by others. If you want to be engagingly captivated, in a futuristic, make-believe World - where anything seems possible - then this is the film for you. I for one, would love to escape the current mess of a World we live in - to experience the alternative dimension, on offer, in Tomorrowland: A World Beyond
