OK! Have you seen the trailer for this movie. It has George Clooney as a former boy genius inventor and teen that comes across a pin that leads to a world somewhere in time and space. It comes out May 22 2015. The teen, Britt Robertson, become caught up in a mysterious drama created by the smartest men in history. Should be interesting! Well it is from Disney. http://video.disney.com/watch/disney-s- ... ss_cache=3

The city's outline looks like the Disney's castle on its logo. It seems interesting, but smells at the same time. I thought the people living in "Dreamland" would have some psionic powers etc., but it seems everything is based on technology and fashion suits. :)

Actually, it looks like Dubai ... based on the trailers, the film director (or sth. like that) worked also on Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, which was partially filmed in Dubai.

Looks like tomorrow is not a whole lot different than today... as Q commented on Voyager, "all you do spend the day pushing buttons. Look! More people pushing buttons!" The push-button future has been around for a while (aka The Jetsons), but I don't think that anyone realized the price humanity would have to pay for that future... the machines become conscious, and the people don't.

DU.BAI or as I know it, ERI.DU, is an interesting choice of location "for the future." (DU = home; ERI = remote,away; BAI = given,granted).

Saw this movie like yesterday. Interesting play with alternate dimension and how Tachyons can effect human behaviour/mind.
