This morning we posted pictures from Tomorrowland (opening May 22nd, 2015) along with details about the plot. The short version is, George Clooney — a former boy genius turned reclusive inventor — teams up with a teenaged science nerd (Britt Robertson) to save Earth with help from an alternative universe inside Disney World or whatever; I zoned out when the plot got too advertise-y. Hugh Laurie plays an alternate, evil version of Walt Disney, or just a representative version of Walt Disney, depending on whom you ask.

George Clooney surprised the crowd at New York Comic-Con a little bit ago by making an unannounced appearance at Disney’s Tomorrowland panel. Reports Deadline:

Clooney, less than two weeks after getting married in Venice, walked out before the Main Stage 1-D crowd to a roar. “It’s good to see you all. If you guys need to know anything about the plot just ask me — everybody dies in the end.” He continued his quips, tan and wry and having the audience eating from his plam. [sic] “Yes this is my first Comic-Con,” he said. “Since my Batman I’d been dis-invited from Comic-Con for about 15 years — sorry about the nipples on the suit.” [emphasis ours]

All is forgiven.

Even though Earth is supposed to be a dystopia in this movie (Well, more of one than it already is.), it would still be pretty cool if you could hang out with Clooney there. I mean you could choose the alternate dimension, but then you wouldn’t be hanging out in this clichéd control room.

Which is a counterpoint to Tomorrowland, which looks like this:

Hmm, jetpacks or George Clooney? Tough decision.
