Where are our jetpacks? Disney’s Tomorrowland tells the story of how the technological promise of the 1964 New York World”s Fair developed in an alternate world but not in our own. Young boy-genius inventor (Thomas Robinson) visits this enigmatic place at the fair and meets its mayor (Hugh Laurie). Years later, the now jaded former boy-genius inventor (George Clooney) goes in search of it again, along with an optimistic teen (Britt Robertson).
Tomorrowland director Brad Bird is also expected to recreate an Apollo launch at Cape Canaveral in Florida over the next few weeks and then return to Vancouver where this alternate world has been crossing over into our own and causing havoc since August.
This past Monday, November 4th, Tomorrowland turned the south end of Robson Square into a café near the Tsukijishijo subway station in Tokyo, Japan. Rumour is a car from this particular Tokyo subway line was built in studio and flipped over with George Clooney in it.
Below is what could be a George Clooney double about to walk up the Robson Square steps in the direction of the subway.
