Brad Bird's Tomorrowland Could Breakthrough in Oscar Race

Brad Bird is a hugely talented, Academy-Award winning director, whose animated films including The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille are all masterpieces of the art form. His foray into live-action films, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, I thought was a worthy entry into a great movie franchise. This gives me a lot of hope for his latest, from Disney, Tomorrowland. Starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson, and a whole host of talented actors, Tomorrowland looks ambitious, fun, and if the trailer indication the perfect balance of action, science fiction, and heart, a combination that Bird has nailed down to an art throughout his career. It probably won't be a huge Oscar contender, maybe an outside BP nominee, but will certainly be a hit among the craft guilds. Although films like Gravity give hope for well-qualified, prestigious genre pics to make a huge Oscar impact. As always, we'll have to wait and see...


  1. This movie was actually shot literally five minutes away from where I currently live. That was an exciting couple of months!

  2. That's awesome! The film looks great
