Brad Bird's 'Tomorrowland' Pushed from Winter 2014 to Summer 2015

November 7, 2013


Now that Disney has confirmed that Star Wars: Episode VII is heading to theaters on December 18th, 2015, the once presumed summer spot for the film will be filled by Brad Bird's original sci-fi film Tomorrowland. Originally slated to hit theaters on December 12th next year, the film will now arrive on May 22nd, 2015. Right now the only other major release slated for that same month is The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and that's three whole weeks before then on May 1st. Opening an original sci-fi film in the battleground of summer is risky, but with names like George Clooney attached to the film, it'll be fine.

If anything, this shows Disney has more faith in the film by putting it in the summer blockbuster season, despite the fact that it's not really based on a comic book, novel, TV series or previous film. The recognition of Brad Bird as director, Damon Lindelof as a writer, Michael Giacchino composing the score, other cast members like Hugh Laurie and Kathryn Hahn, and Disney's well-known theme park title will certainly help. As of now, this is all we know about the story: 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. Stay tuned.

I like this date shift. November-December was pretty crowded. Interstellar, The Hunger Games 4(3 part 2?) and The Hobbit are all pretty heavy hitters.
