Starring George Clooney, Britt Robertson and Hugh Laurie, the feature follows a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor who embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.
The new trailer not only explores that world, but several action sequences aim to prove that the Disney pic is as big a production as any summer film.
“Lost” and “Prometheus” scribe Damon Lindelof penned the script with Jeff Jensen, and early footage is giving off a “Harry Potter” feel. Disney hopes the project can add to the studio’s ever-growing list of franchises that includes the Marvel and “Star Wars” universes.
The film bows on May 22 and will go up against the Fox and MGM reboot of “Poltergeist.”
