For the longest, ever since Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof hinted at the film that was then titled “1952,” people have been speculating as to what the film could be about, especially since the two have teased an archive box full of pictures of Walt Disney, a copy of the book “Model Research: The National Advisory Committee For Aeronautics 1918-1958” by military professor Alex Roland, an old 45 record, the 1928 edition of “Amazing Stories” magazine featuring the first ever appearance of Buck Rogers, the nozzle of a small rocket engine. Now we’ve finally gotten some concrete news.
The Walt Disney Studios has released news that “1952” is being formally titled “Tomorrowland.” The film will be released Dec. 19, 2014 and George Clooney is set to star.
It’s safe to assume that the film will deal primarily with the “Tomorrowland” theme park. It’s probably about time Disney put some thought into a new theme park franchise, because “Pirates of the Caribbean” is getting old, to be frank. Also, films about the ’50s’ view of “The Future” is always entertaining, so I’m all for it. I love films set in time periods.
I think it’s also safe to assume some time travel or some time of space travel will be involved. How can you have a film called “Tomorrowland” without some sort of “Tomorrow” aspect?
