Based loosely on Disney’s fantastical theme park of the same name, and headlined by versatile actor George Clooney, the just released “Tomorrowland” has already proved to be an early, unexpected contender for best reviewed movie of Summer 2015. This was never more the case than when 320 lucky winners of the recent E FM “Tomorrowland” promotion attended the Sri Lankan premiere of this soon-to-be classic, technological fantasy from Disney, where event attendees watched, spellbound, as characters were thrown into a world of flying cars, rocket jet packs and gleaming, spiraling metallic high-rises, where everything was possible and an exciting adventure was the only norm.
A potential sleeper hit for Summer 2015, the plot of “Tomorrowland” is being teased internationally as follows: “Bound by a shared destiny, a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.” Unfortunately, if we reveal anything more, we’ll spoil the delight sure to be experienced by audiences of this movie.
And, most impressive of all, the only thing that the 320 E FM promo winners were asked to do, to visit this wonder-full realm, was take part in “Name the Clooney Movie”, where E FM Radio Personalities (RPs) played a clip of a famous George Clooney movie on air, along with reading out multiple answer choices. All that was left for loyal E FM fans to join in the “Tomorrowland” adventure was to send in an SMS with their guesses, with the prize being valuable VIP passes for the premiere, held on May 22 at 7.00 p.m. at Colombo’s landmark Savoy Cinema.
Said E FM Programmes Director Mark Kross, “Tomorrowland is not your typical popcorn flick. It touches the inner child in you, which is why we felt that it would be a fantastical journey for our E FM fans to experience. Being Sri Lanka’s Lifestyle station, we are always keen to go above and beyond ordinary entertainment. And, if the overwhelming response from our loyal E FM fans is anything to go by, we have once again delivered by providing an experience that was both exclusive and unique, yet thought provoking, that will not be soon forgotten.”
