Expedition Everest |

Frank Walker (George Clooney) is talking to an unseen audience about the future when a female voice interrupts him, tell him that his wording is a touch ‘bleak.’ When the female asks him to think back to when he thought of the future as an optimistic place, he talks about when he went to the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City as a child. Young Frank (Thomas Robinson) eagerly enters the Hall of Inventions carrying a very large duffle bag containing his invention: a jet pack he made. Though the judge David Nix (Hugh Laurie) does not show much enthusiasm for the device (which Frank admits doesn’t work properly), a little girl named Athena (Raffey Cassidy) seems to think Frank’s invention has potential. Outside the hall, Athena catches up with Frank. Giving him a small pin, she requests that he follow her behind a small group. The group also includes Mr Nix, and some guests of his.
