We haven’t seen much from ‘Tomorrowland’ yet, so the new Super Bowl trailer is very pleasant surprise for anyone anticipating the new film from director Brad Bird. In fact the trailer leans heavily on Bird’s name, promoting the film as being the latest project from the genius who made ‘The Incredibles’ and ‘Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.’ More importantly, the new trailer feels like exactly what we needed after that vague teaser. There is as much action and excitement in these quick spot as their is mystery in the full trailer.

Although the spot is chock-full of wild, CGI-driven action, the plot details remain as vague as ever. However, the retro-futuristic visuals and the mere presence of the always delightful George Clooney have us intrigued. Bird and screenwriter Damon Lindelof have implied that their goal with this film is create a scientific version of Harry Potter, which sounds right up our alley. We can’t help but wish that the trailer could have told us just a little more about the actual plot of this thing, but this is the Super Bowl we’re talking about. Every second is a small fortune.

‘Tomorrowland’ is set to open on May 22, 2015.
