I realize that the original Tron was not a smash hit. It’s more of a cult-film with a rapid following than something very many mainstream moviegoers are familiar with these days.
That being said, I’ve seen the first film and am looking forward to December when Tron Legacy appears in theaters. Flynn (Jeff Bridges) is back for the second film, and starring alongside will be Olivia Wilde, Michael Sheen, Garrett Hedlund, and Bruce Boxleitner.
With Comic-Con going in full force right now, Disney just unveiled a brand new full-length trailer for the film. Let me know what you think!
Watch the trailer embedded after the break!
Official Synopsis: Inside the ENCOM computer system, a program called CLU, created by Kevin Flynn during the original fight against the Master Control Program, has been causing chaos and destruction across the grid. Sean Flynn, son of former ENCOM CEO Kevin Flynn, is in search of his missing father, but Sean discovers that his father’s whereabouts are somehow connected to the program making a mess of the ENCOM system. In order to find his father, Sean has to go into the ENCOM system, and fight his way to CLU, but in the neon world of TRON, a lot has changed and new dangers await him at every turn.
Tron Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world thats unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Bridges), looks into his fathers disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevins loyal confidant (Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
Look for Tron Legacy in theaters December 17.
