Re: Tron Legacy teaser trailer now available

It comes out Dec 17, 2010, I think...

BTW, Here is a MTV article where the director describes the background of some of the scenes in the trailer:

Amongst other info: Apparently 1000 years in game-time have elapsed (20 yr real time) since Flynn disappeared.

^ Wow, thanks for the link.

I'm thrilled that Clu is going to be a major character in the film. I can't wait to see them pull that off.

Just so we remember our roots:

1982 Tron Trailer

I always liked the pre-"In a World..." trailer voice.

Trailers have really changed since these days, they are so quiet and flat back then, I think they put a lot more into the production of them nowadays.

It doesn't help that the shots aren't even finished.

This might be a stupid question, but is Tron in this movie?
Good question, I say he'll make some appearance. He'd about have too. Though I'd bet a redesigned look-- for obvious reasons.
I think that Tron is de-rezzed (by Flynn) and that Flynn's son (the young man in the second trailer) is in cyberspace to find his dad and also possibly stop his dad from being bad (somewhat like the plot of the PC game Tron 2, in which Jet Bradley-son of Alan-must either meet up with Tron and stop the corruption of the system, or must become Tron and stop it himself.) That's what I gathered from the first trailer.

Oh, by the way, here's my video of the new Lightcycle from the new movie:

Re: Tron Legacy teaser trailer now available

This is easily my most anticipated 2010 film and this trailer (as did the previous one) has got me super excited. December CANNOT come soon enough.

I have to say Bruce Boxleitner looks awfully good for his age. I hope he has a bigger role than what the trailer suggests.

I'm interested in the David Bowie looking guy. What's his story?
Got this from the comment link, in case you haven't read it:

"That's Castor. He owns a nightclub at the top of the tallest tower in the city. He has a checkered past. If you need anything, he can probably get it for you. He plays a pivotal role in the movie. You get a glimpse that he has a flair for the dramatic."

I loved this trailer, can't wait for the film.

Well, didn't that look cool. The fact that Daft Punk is doing the score has me pumped.

Re: Tron Legacy teaser trailer now available

I may sound weird, but the stuff inside the computer world looked too real.

I mean this is one movie that has free license to use a lot of CG and they didn't.

Still looks OK, but I only end up seeing about 5 movies a year in the theater. Probably will mis this one till DVD, I mean I haven't seen the first movie in 20 years.

Considering the movie is named after his (digital) character, I'd imagine he does.

Y'know I was thinking the same thing. Vehicles throwing up water spray, smoking tires, and realistic clouds kinda detract from the 'digital' feel. Makes it feel more like a fuuristic Earth. I loved details in the original film like the blank backgrounds, and the 2D grids floating in the sky representing clouds.

Hope I'm proved wrong though.

Re: Tron Legacy teaser trailer now available

But it only makes sense such a virtual world would evolve and be improved upon.

It is worthwhile to remember that the look of the original TRON was as much (if not more) affected by the budget and technical capability as it was a design choice. It is always a compromise.

I think the new stuff looks great.
