The film that is a closely guarded secret at Disney has an official title: Tomorrowland. Formerly known as 1952, this is the big-scale tentpole that Brad Bird is directing and co-wrote with Damon Lindelof from a concept by Lindelof and Jeff Jensen. George Clooney is starring in a story that supposedly is about a man who encounters alien life on Earth. It recently was set for a December 19, 2014 release.
Disney Release Date Moves: Slots For ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean 5′, ‘Muppets 2′, ’1952′; 3D for ‘Captain America’ And ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’
The studio announced a slew of release schedule additions and alterations today. Among the films getting new wide dates are Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, which is set for July 10, 2015; The Muppets 2, which will bow March 21, 2014; and the shrouded-in-secrecy Damon Lindelof-Brad Bird film 1952, starring George Clooney, now set for December 19, 2014 in 3D.
In addition, Disney has moved its Angelina Jolie-starrer Maleficent to July 2, 2014, shifting the 3D revisionist fairy tale from March 14, 2014 and squarely into the summer fray. Two other pics that already had dates are now getting the 3D treatment: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 4, 2014) and Guardians Of The Galaxy (August 1, 2014).
The Little Mermaid, which was to be the latest from the Disney vaults to get a 3D rerelease (like The Lion King, Finding Nemo and the recent Monsters, Inc.), has been taken off the schedule. It had been slated for September 13, 2013.
