I have to admit when I first heard about a sequel to Tron I was lukewarm about the idea at best. I've always been leery of sequels, or remakes for that matter, to cult classics, because I feel like they usually get ruined when the people behind the project try to open up the film to a “broader audience” thus losing most of the aspects that made it cult in the first place. That being said, after hearing all about Tron: Legacy and watching clips over the past few months, I’m pretty excited to check this one out now.
Cinemablend recently posted a gallery featuring a bunch of new photos Disney released to promote the film. And I've got to say they’re pretty phenomenal. I’ve posted a few of my favorites below, but you can check out the rest of the gallery by clicking here.
The effects look really, really slick. By the way, I also absolutely love Daft Punk. Check out the 20-minute preview for the score they did here. The songs previously leaked online were all fakes, except for the one attached to the music video. Throw in Jeff Bridges and the fact that I’ve had a crush on Olivia Wilde since her OC days and you know why I’ll be seeing this one opening night in 3D.
