Review – ‘Tomorrowland’ May Be As Subversive As ‘Fight Club’

Summer months aren’t when you typically see quirky, big-budget original movie properties releasing on major holiday weekends. This year’s original projects serving as real summer tentpole releases are pretty much limited to San Andreas, Inside Out, Ant-Man, and Tomorrowland. Inside Out is an animated Pixar film, and Ant-Man is a superhero film set in the existing Marvel cinematic universe. San Andreas is a disaster film relying mostly on CGI effects and the star wattage of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Which leaves Tomorrowland as the truly unique standout “big idea” production that’s getting the treatment usually reserved for blockbuster pre-branded sequels, adaptations, and remakes. How much it pays off will depend on just how open audiences are to not only the wildly original concept, but to the extremely important themes it delivers with a remarkably frank warning and call to action wrapped in classic Disney “family cinema” style.
