What the World needs is a bit of optimism. Director Brad Bird takes us away to fantastical action-packed journey to a place of infinite possibilities. We meet bright, scientifically-gifted Teen Casey Newton (Britt Robertson), who stumbles one day upon a pin, which upon contact takes her away to a strange new place which co-exists in tandem with reality. The pin stops working and her world unravels. She is driven to find the one Person who can help her get back to Tomorrowland. And that one Person happens to be jaded former Child Genus, Frank Walker (George Clooney). Despite their differences – she an Optimist, he a Pessimist – they find the more they want to uncover about Tomorrowland, the more they find their lives are threatened.
Canadian Actor Matthew MacCaull was in Toronto for a two-day Press Tour in support of what should easily be much the best at the Box Office this weekend. The multi-talented Montreal-born Actor cut his teeth at Dalhousie University out east before entering Show Business fully in the late ’90s. The Killing, Bates Motel, iZombie, Once Upon a Time – the Résumé steadily has been building and just now he received the opportunity of a lifetime, starring as Secret Spy, Dave Clark in Tomorrowland.
We had the pleasure of joining MacCaull on his final Press Day. He tells me that his rise in Hollywood continues to be an “uphill battle” and lets us in on the secretive casting process involved with a project of Tomorrowland‘s magnitude. And like us, he completely was floored by the performance from his young English Co-Star Raffey Cassidy, whom we agree “was impossible to look away from” when she is on-screen. Also, find out what’s next in-store for the striking Star.
