A new trailer for Disney’s mysterious ‘Tomorrowland: A World Beyond’ debuted during the Super Bowl 2015 giving us our first proper glimpse of Hugh Laurie’s scientist character David Nix.

Little is known of the role the British star of ‘House’ plays in the film, but the trailer suggests his character resides in ‘Tomorrowland’. The fantasy world was inspired by the futuristic Disneyland area, but it’s not clear where or what this magical world is. Regardless though, it’s starting to look pretty spectacular.


Plot details for Brad Bird’s live action fantasy epic have been scarce to date, but a new synopsis gives a better idea of what to expect from ‘The Incredibles’ director’s second live action film.
