I’m excited about Disney’s Tomorrowland movie! Though we’ve only seen the tiniest snippets, and it seems absurd to make a film around a theme park attraction (Ahem, Pirates of the Caribbean) I’ll go see it if only to support the first optimistic view of the future we’ve seen on film in a loooong time.
Even Star Trek, the last holdout of do-gooder diplomacy in space, in recent iterations seems to have gone fairly dystopian to compete with the endless stream of bleak grey post-apocalyptic visions we’re subjected to in theatres now. Don’t get me wrong – I fully support arena-based death-sports for teenagers, I’d just like to mix it up a little bit with some blue skies and happy little trees now and then. 🙂 Tomorrowland looks (possibly!) like a breath of fresh air, and something to look forward to.
