We’ve all seen, or know something about “Gravity,” starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, right? We appreciate that getting lost in space is not a very good idea. Imagine if you’re a goofy teenager thrown in with a bunch of other teens in some space station that has apparently lost its way and is just drifting out in space. That’s what we first see in this new comic, “Pariah,” story by Aron Warner and Philip Gelatt, art and lettering by Brett Weldele, published by Dark Horse Comics. There’s not even a hint of the glamour of Bullock and Clooney, not by a long shot. This is gritty, sweaty, stuff, more like “Lord of the Flies.”

Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland’, starring George Clooney & Hugh Laurie, begins filming in Vancouver
“Tomorrowland” begins shooting today in Vancouver, BC. The details about this movie began to be teased out this January, going under the code name, “1952.” As this synopsis indicates, there’s an interesting story here with a lot of potential for an excellent stand-alone or maybe another franchise:
Tomorrowland is a place where science has surpassed the world we live in now, where it has become the future. Frank Walker (George Clooney) has seen this Promised Land once, as an 11-year-old. But he was thrown out of it by the great inventor Frank Nix (Hugh Laurie). Before his removal, however, the young Frank was able to learn that the girl he had fallen in love with was actually a robot.
Now, as a broken man, Frank has to team up with a young girl named Casey to understand what happened at Tomorrowland in order to save the world.
And then there’s this other synopsis that is considered the official synopsis. Whether it’s a continuation of previous ideas or a whole different turn, who knows. It remains intriguing:
Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as “Tomorrowland.”
