Britt Robertson

Tomorrowland Upodcast Review

The latest smash from Disney studios hits screens in the UK this Friday 22nd May.  But what can we expect from such a potentially stunning combination of actors, writers and directors?  George Clooney is the main lead on stage, with directing contributions from Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille and MI:3 – aka the best one of the series so far, with Philip Seymour Hoffman) and writing credits from Damon BahBlahLof, courtesy of Lost and numerous others.

This might well be a one-off in terms of UPOD, but we do delve deeply into the land of make-believe and Disney’s latest sci-fi / futuristic imaginarium.  The spoilers kick-in at around the 19 minute mark, but other than that, no need to worry!

The_Longest_Ride_posterComing to UK cinemas from 19th June, THE LONGEST RIDE centres on the star-crossed love affair between Luke, a former champion bull rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophia, a college student who is about to embark upon her dream job in New York City’s art world. As conflicting paths and ideals test their relationship, Sophia and Luke make an unexpected and life altering connection with Ira, whose memories of his own decades-long romance with his beloved wife deeply inspire the young couple.
