I have no idea if Tomorrowland is going to be a hit this summer. That I am excited to see it is not a bellwether indicator for any movie’s success. I was excited to see Green Lantern a few years back, like opening night excited. My judgment is not to be trusted.
But I want a movie like this to succeed.
Though I love superhero movies and Star Wars movies and am hopeful and anticipating next summer’s Star Trek sequel, I worry about the significant lack of originality the movie going public is willing to sample.

Will the equally original and fun looking Tomorrowland be this summer’s Edge of Tomorrow? I don’t know, but I think it looks great.
