Tron Legacy – Comparison of Jeff Bridges then and CGI now

Posted by LiveFor on March 10, 2010

The Tron Legacy trailer hit yesterday (check it out). You briefly see a de-aged Jeff Bridges as Clu.

Dark Horizons did a side by side comparison of the de-aged Dude with a shot of him from 1982’s Tron. Not too shabby although a little bit symmetrical, but then an evil copy can look however he wants.

What do you think of the comparison?

Tron Legacy – Trailer and screenshots

Posted by LiveFor on March 9, 2010


Finally, the trailer is out for one of my most anticipated movies this year. A great trailer, full of mystery and cool imagery. Jeff Bridges as the younger, evil Clu (above). Olivia Wilde as the woman of the piece. Michael Sheen is the nightclub owner clad in white and we see Bruce Boxleitner as Alan Bradley – his counterpart, Tron is meant to be in the film so I am assuming he will have been youngified for the role as Bridges was.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The penultimate photo from the Tron Legacy Facebook page before the trailer hits.

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 could be the beginning of a trilogy & original Tron on Blu-Ray news

Posted by LiveFor on March 2, 2010

The push for Tron Legacy has been gathering speed with various photos and websites cropping up all over the place…well okay, by place I mean the internet. Anyhoo, word on the street is that Disney are hoping this could be the beginning of a trilogy – that doesn’t include the original Tron.

Blue Sky Disney had the details:

2010 will be a huge year for the sequel to Tron. Huge. And should the box office returns provide what Disney Suits with smiling faces then you can expect a whole lot more over the coming years. On the theatrical front, this could be the beginning of a new trilogy. And I’m not talking about including the original Tron. If all goes according to plan you could see this as the first in a trilogy of films that start with the word “Tron” and end somewhere else… Legacy is only the beginning. There are preliminary plans to milk this into a franchise of “Pirate” proportions. And the buzz from it so far is very good.

And that’s not the only Tron project they’re planning on having for us in the possible future. The plans have been put into motion for a computer animated television series that could conceivably be up by late 2011/early 2012. This would be something of a placeholder to keep the fans interest still peaked in between this first film and the next one. No word yet on where it will wind up being broadcast. It’s not known if it’ll be staged for the Mouse’s fledgling boy channel Disney XD or the more mainstream ABC network, but as of now the concept has been greenlit. We’ll see how this project evolves down the development line as the film’s release gets closer.

Then there is the merchandise that you’re going to see flood the parks come this October/November. Expect Tomorrowland to be filled with all things Tron. And some of the areas are being talked about getting “thematic” makeovers. If you’re into Retro-Eighties with the Captain Eo attraction back for a limited run, then prepare for more, albeit fictional nostalgia. Should it get approved, you might get to see the arcade next to Space Mountain turned into a variation of “Flynn’s Arcade.” We’ll cross our fingers and see if the Suits make the call on this one.

Naturally, there’s the talk of a Tron attraction at Disneyland and various other theme parks. WDI is working on concepts for a Tron experience, but don’t expect a fully immersive Tron Legacy attraction by the time the film opens. Any attraction wouldn’t be seen in Tomorrowland until 2012 at the earliest… but that doesn’t mean there won’t be surprises between now and then.

Meanwhile, AICN have some news on the original Tron’s transition to Blu-Ray. Their source said:

It turns out my buddy and I were sitting right in front of Lisberger (Steve Lisberger – writer and director of Tron) and we overheard him talking about how he just finished over-seeing complete color-correction and major enhancements to the original TRON for BLU RAY! It sounded like he basically kept the movie the same (no CGI inserted) but corrected the colors throughout the entire film and enhanced everything. He said it was a dream to go back to something he made thirty years ago and correct it to look exactly how he would want it for the Blu Ray release (which he made no mention of when that would happen).

How do you like them apples?
