Posted by LiveFor on March 8, 2010

Yes it is very poor quality and it is best seen in 3D, but here is your first look at the new Tron Legacy trailer. The official release is some time this week.

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K – Bill and Ted sequel? Keanu thinks so.

Posted by LiveFor on March 8, 2010

Ted “Theodore” Logan aka Keanu Reeves was at the Acadamy Awards last night. MTV got chatting to him and uncovered some interesting news.

They asked him if there could ever be a sequel to Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey with Alex Winter. His response was, “I’m trying, I’m trying.”

MTV then asked Keanu if he was joking.

“I’m not,” Reeves said. “We’ll see.”

At this point MTV wisely left Keanu alone as he does know Kung-Fu.

Bill & Ted – great films. I love them and I’d love to see a third one. However, I’m taking this with a pinch of salt, but wouldn’t it be great to see Wyld Stallyns one more.

Is Keanu taking the piss? If they did make a third film what would you want to see happen? What historical or mythical figures should be in it and wouldn’t it be great to get Jeff Bridges involved as a Dude like character?

Tron Legacy – New photo. Flynn’s Arcade is a mess

Posted by LiveFor on March 2, 2010

Yesterday was the first photo of 5 to be released on the Tron Legacy Facebook page before the new trailer debuts.

Today we have the second and it shows Flynn’s son (Garrett Hedlund) outside his Father’s old arcade. This was the one in the original that was full of kids playing Space Paranoid’s and Flynn (Jeff Bridges) was king.

Tron Legacy – Description of the new trailer

Posted by LiveFor on March 1, 2010

A few days ago there was a surprise screening of the trailer for the new Tron Legacy film. Unfortunatley I didn’t get to see it but Sci-Fi Wire had this description of what many of us missed. The trailer will debut in front of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland when it opens on Friday.

The 3-D trailer opens with Sam (Garrett Hedlund) speaking with an older Alan Bradley (Bruce Boxleitner – you can see what he looks like in the film here) atop the Encom Building. Alan says he received a text from Sam’s missing father, Kevin Flynn, from a number that was disconnected 20 years ago. Bradley says Kevin was on the cusp of a technological breakthrough when he went missing and that he would never have left that behind or left Sam behind. Bradley then gives Sam keys to Flynn’s Arcade. Sam speeds off on his motorcycle and arrives at the arcade, which we see has been closed for years.

Sam opens up the arcade, discovers a secret door behind a “Tron” game machine and discovers Kevin’s lab. He wipes dust from a black-and-white screen, which is still active. The shot cuts to the glowing laser we remember from the first movie—the one that digitized Kevin Flynn the first time he entered the virtual world—and the screen goes black.

We are then in a fully realized- 3-D black-and-neon Tron world, with a giant lighted new-generation Recognizer, before which stand three tiny figures in lighted black suits.

We see Sam in a light suit ascending in some kind of round illuminated platform, then quick cuts of

♦Olivia Wilde’s Quorra in a black light suit, reclining on a divan;
♦a light cycle speeding toward the horizon, with a massive lit-up Tron city in the distance;
♦a young-looking black-clad Jeff Bridges as Clu emerging onto a platform, accompanied by Jarvis and other programs;
♦combatants, including Sam, in light suits, flinging white-lighted discs at each other;
♦a skidding light vehicle (did it have four wheels??);
♦Michael Sheen as Castor in a white jumpsuit with a shock of white hair, playing air guitar on an illuminated white cane, standing atop a platform – Sheen talks more about his character and the club here;
♦a white-suited combatant with two illuminated discs;
♦a blond woman in a tight white light suit (a siren?);
♦Sam walking up a ramp toward a bright light (a new Tron arena? Click on the image below for a larger version).

We hear Sam’s voice:


Kevin/Bridges’ voice: “Sam.”

“Long time.”

“You have no idea.”

At the end, we see two light cycles smashing into each other at high speed, ending with a closeup of Sam’s face as he speeds directly toward the camera.

The trailer was backed by electronic music composed by Daft Punk just for the 3-D teaser trailer

Tron Legacy – Encom news and first look at Bruce Boxleitner

Posted by LiveFor on February 25, 2010

Things are shaping up in the world of Tron Legacy. There was a world wide race to find clues to open a site which brought us the photo from earlier today and now which has lots of things on it including links to other Tron related sites.

One such site is for Encom, which as you’ll all know, is the company from the first Tron movie. Bruce Boxleitner’s character Alan Bradley worked there and it was he who developed the Tron program.

The Encom site has this photo of Bruce as Alan Bradley who is now Executive Consultant for the company. He’s looking well.

The Encom catalogue shows a number of games they have been working on. Tron and Space Paranoids were in the original film and that gave us the flying tank things, so the names of the other games may have give us a clue as to what we can expect in the sequel – Laser Maximus, Arc Wars, Vice Squad, Astro Gunner, Code Wars, Kras Bot, Matrix Blaster and more.

Encom also say that Verbisware 7.1 OS is almost ready for the market and it will soon become the new gold standard in computing.

There is some mention of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) in the timeline of the company becoming CEO of Encom. It says he disappeared on 26th July 1989. Alan Bradley then took over as CEO.

It is a great site and I love it when they spend time on these viral sites. Looks like Encom is doing well and has spread all over the World. What that means for the world in Tron Legacy I have no idea.

The future is Encom.

Lots to see on that site and many others from the FlynnLives forum – let me know what you find.

Tron Legacy – Michael Sheen talks about his virtual nightclub

Posted by LiveFor on February 23, 2010

While chatting about his time in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland with Sci-Fi Wire, Michael Sheen got onto the subject of Tron Legacy “Similar in a way, isn’t it? Certainly in the first Tron film, Jeff’s [Bridges] character gets kind of sucked into this Wonderland-type place. So there’s a similarity to it. We go back to the world of Tron 28 years later, and technology has moved on. All the same things that we saw in the first Tron film will be there, but it’s just, again, in a new light and with 28 years of technology.”

I thought Sheen was playing the big bad of the piece but now I am not so sure. It looks as if he runs some kind of nightclub in the computer world. “I run the nightclub,” Sheen said. “I am the host of the nightclub and a showman, this sort of very over-the-top character.”

As to whether Daft Punk, who are providing the soundtrack to the sequel, will be performing on screen in his club Sheen didn’t commit either way. “I’m not sure,” he said. “I’m not sure.”

As for filming itself it sounds as if Sheen got lucky in that his nightclub was a physical set. “It was fantastic,” Sheen said. “It was this amazing set and all these amazing people there. For a film that has a lot of green screen, I got the most fun bits to do.”

Now all I want to see is some more photos and footage from the film.
