George Clooney surprised fans when he showed up at the New York Comic-Con panel on Thursday, Oct. 9, 2014. The actor, 53, was there to debut the trailer for his latest movie “Tomorrowland.” The Disney film is currently in post-production and is set for release in 2015. Clooney stars alongside Britt Robertson and Tom McGraw.
“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,” said Clooney to fans at Comic-Con, as published on Deadline.
The actor also talked about his much-ridiculed turn as Batman in the 1997 movie “Batman and Robin.”
“Yes this is my first Comic-Con. Since my Batman I’d been dis-invited from Comic-Con for about 15 years…I met Adam West back there [backstage] just now and in my head I was like, ‘Hey, I’m really sorry.’ He goes, ‘Give me a fist bump’ and I was like, ‘Just hit me. Just hit me,’” added Clooney.
Clooney, who was one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors for years, finally settled down in September this year with lawyer Amal Alamuddin. The couple tied the knot in Venice, Italy.
The film has been under tight wraps since production began in 2013. To give viewers a clue about the film’s mystery plot, film director Brad Bird and screenwriter Damon Lindelof released a photo of a blue banker’s box with the label “1952,” which was the film’s working title. Jim Hill speculated that the film’s plot had to do with a UFO special that Air Force One wanted Walt Disney Studios to produce for television.
Lindelof talked about the plot details in Inside Movies. He mentioned that the movie features Walt Disney’s involvement in a place called Tomorrowland. Would you catch Tomorrowland in theaters? Tell us in the comments.
