Tron: Legacy Trailer: The Mainframe's On Fire!


For the first, mostly irrelevant analog minute of the new Tron: Legacy trailer, a familiar-looking man with a voice for luxury car commercials delivers big news to a younger man in his 20s: he was paged the night before by the boy's long-missing father. This is shocking for a number of reasons, not the least of which being the fact that someone in 2010 can still get paged. A motorcycle voyage to Flynn's Arcade, a mysterious portal to the unknown ... do you see where all this is leading? Precisely! Academy Award® winner Jeff Bridges is still being held against his will by an evil, blacklight-abusing microprocessing regime, and only his son can get save him, after 93 minutes of Light Cycle races, Ultimate Identity Disk tournaments, and Michael Sheen showing off his wicked Air Guitar Hero moves in an outfit even gayer than the one he wore in New Moon!

Verdict: My memory stick just involuntarily uploaded.

    That's just too fucking cool. I have to rewatch the first Tron one of these days.

    It's Boxleitnerrific!

    As a long time fan of the original, I watched the first TRON again the other day and found myself marvelling at the CG technology of the day. Amazing stuff. I saw the hidden Mickey for the first time too.
    This teaser is very nice. It's good to see Bruce Boxleitner and Jeff Bridges back, but I hope to see more of their mature characters than just cameos - as well as Cindy Morgan!

    My long hard capacitor just blew its dielectric fluid.

    I have to admit, I remain skeptical that they're making a sequel to a movie that's over 20 years old, as good as the original Tron was.
    I actually just watched Tron again recently last month, so it's been fresh on my mind, so it's only led me to *drool* once I saw the trailer.
    And while I'm at work, I didn't hear any of the sound from the trailer, I've immediately been led to ask a few questions
    1) What's up with Tron having a video game in his name? He wasn't remotely built to be an arcade game, but to keep the MCP in check.
    2) Why in the world would Flynn, after owning the company, move the digitizer laser to a secret location in his old arcade?
    But still, I'm anxious for the movie!

    This looks like the greatest Rave party of of the Century!
