Tomorrowland has been a film I have been eagerly awaiting for some time now. I have avoided all trailers and clips other than the very first teaser and know little to nothing about the story. Brad Bird is a great director, The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol are all fantastic films and Bird proved with MI4 that he's great with action. The mixed reviews for the film are worrying but a lot of the complaints are of the finale, I'm hearing great things about the rest of the film.
Tomorrowland releases in cinemas Friday 22nd May.
Starring: Sam Rockwell (Moon), Rosemarie Dewitt (The Watch) and Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows).
Directed By: Gil Kenan (Monster House).

The Poltergiest remake really caught my attention when the first teaser dropped, I thought it looked visually quite interesting and I'm a huge fan of Sam Rockwell, and he usually picks good projects. But the word is from the reviews already out that the film doesn't do anything new from its 1982 predecessor, and that it's not very scary.
Poltergeist opens in cinemas Friday 22nd May.
