Britt Robertson in TomorrowlandTOMORROWLAND

To the credit of Disney’s marketing team, the intriguingly vague previews for Tomorrowland provided just enough (a grizzled George Clooney, “directed by Brad Bird” in the credits, no number at the title’s end or colon in its middle) to make the film appear promising without explicitly stating what it was about, or whom it was meant for. Having now seen Bird’s futuristic adventure, I know what it’s about – mainly because, from its first seconds, Disney’s latest live-action endeavor keeps spelling out its themes in big block letters.

MONSTERS VS. ALIENS

After a quick, manic prelude that effectively sets the tone for this quick, manic movie, Dreamworks' animated Monsters Vs. Aliens offers what is doubtless the most promising opening credit of the year, wrapping up its recognition of voice-over actors with: " ... and Stephen Colbert as the President." All right!, you think. Success at last!
