 Post subject: Tron Legacy
PostPosted: Mon Jun 21, '10, 2:09 am 
I saw a trailer in 3D last night for the upcoming movie "Tron Legacy." I am so excited! It looked great in 3D, too. I'm a bit worried that the designs of the tanks, light cycles, recognizers (the recognizers were my favorite from the original), etc. stray a bit from the originals, though I understand that 30 years of advances in computer animation will do that.

And, of course, a tie-in game is being released, too.

The original movie made a huge impression on me as a kid. I wore my "Tron" video cassette to death watching it so much! Also, Disney used pieces of "Tron" in their "Magical World of Disney" sequences for years, which shows just how important and groundbreaking the movie was to their own franchise for promotion, even though the movie was only moderately successful at best. It was one of the first films to use CGI, and especially have it be such a major part of the movie.

Interestingly, the video game released as a tie-in to the original movie barely escaped the video game crash of 1983.

Anyone else looking forward to this movie?

I've been looking forward to seeing this one too, though I can't remember when I last saw the original one. Anyone know when it's due out?

It's due out in December, just in time for the holiday movie season. Kind of disappointed it won't be a summer movie. :(

And last but not least, a better quality upload of some original scenes, fashioned into a fake trailer:

December huh? It's been on the go for a while, I was thinking it would be coming out sooner too. Well I'm sure I'll get around to seeing it at some point anyway. Thanks Tanith.
