A washed-up child star, a dinosaur, and a fro-yo shop make-up Forever City: A post-dramatic, real-life fantasy world where we asked a bunch of teenagers if they were worried about the end of the world and they said nah, it’s not gonna happen for like a thousand years. But now there's been another mysterious plane crash and no-one knows what it means. Maybe it's the beginning of the end.
Then again, maybe that's just a line from the movie.
