the diffraction spikes are coming from the brighter part of the accretion disk instead of the center ... how?

it could be a binary pair that has a black hole and a star that are in that position at the moment. it almost looks like a solar eclipse!  :)

Well, alright. The post above this reply has half the answer correct. The diffraction spikes coming from the disk is indeed a star superimposed onto the disk with very high brightness values. However, there is also a second star right above the shot (literally less than 1 degree) above the top of the image that illuminates the planet to replicate the unrealistic illumination shown in the movie. If the light was coming solely from the black hole disk, we would see a "sunset" very close to the visible edge of the planet, and about 3/4 of the rest of the planet towards the bottom of the screenshot would be entirely dark. Setting up this shot was an absolute pain in the arse as both stars had to be perfectly lined up while orbiting in differing directions, at different SMA, at different angles and at different speeds.

tl;dr the system is complicated and unrealistic.

I recreated this Kepler-22 b conception, yes I am fully aware about the background.
I basically just edited the original planet with the atmosphere, clouds and rings.
The size is also wrong.

With the amount of bizarre creatures on Earth, I doubt aliens would look like humans with skull deformations or skin conditions.

I found this sweet looking cliff on Google so I decided to go look for a similar looking one in SpaceEngine

I hope to see Space Engine looking like Google's Image, so beautiful,
