Mar 9 2010'Tron Legacy' Trailer: Tron Has a Nice Couch

tron-legacy-trailer.jpg

It's the Tron you've been asking for ever since you decided it was socially acceptable to start asking for a Tron: sleeker designs, motorcycles that can swerve, sexier Tronettes, nicer furniture... an albino Tron David Bowie/Jim Carrey's Riddler? YES:


(or in high definition here)

Thank god Bruce Boxleitner has consistently refused to upgrade his pager to a mobile phone so that this movie can exist.

(Thanks: Huntley, Simon, Tom, Anthony, and the Lord above.)

Niiiiice.

HAHA, I just sent a link to this! I need it to be December, like NOW. I can not wait!

This is my most anticipated movie so far.
I've always called Tron the original Matrix.

Still hoping that Metal Gear movie is going to be released too.

Come on Hideo Kojima! Hook it up!

December? DECEMBER? WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL DECEMBER?!?

It looks beautiful. Perhaps the movie will stink, but the previews are more encouraging than most (except for the albino David Bowie/Riddler the IWS guy mentioned). It was great to see the recognizers are around and still look pretty menacing. I've noticed that the new 2010 Tron world has differences: the shapes are rounder, cycles turn in curves, the sky actually has weather, even the recognizer wobbles about when it lands, and as it's landing, there appears to be atmosphere. I know CGI has improved greatly since the original Tron, but why does that mean cyberspace needs to be more like the real world?

Um... Why did that not suck? Isn't it supposed to suck?

so this is a sequal not a reboot?

I've been following this for a while and after seeing this teaser....it looks absolutely MASSIVE!! Not to mention the music in the teaser is done by Daft Punk....a track they made specifically for the teaser.

@5...the question to your answer is easy my friend....this isnt the 1980's anymore...technology/computers have advanced 10 fold since then. Im not talking about the CGI for the film...Im talking about the technology the story is based around. The world of Tron has changed and grown with it. Plain and simple. Oh and the light cycles turned in curves in the first film....lots of people forget that. Go watch it again and tell me what they did when they escaped from the game grid.

@7....yes its a sequel!

Jesus Christ, and I thought I was excited about this before.

Excited and I never even saw the first one. Gonna have to remedy that

@3

They already made a few Metal Gear movies. I think they called them Metal Gear 2-4.

IT LOOKS LIKE THEY WENT FULL RETARD! WAY OVERDONE.... I wish them luck... not the TRON I wanted, but like I had a say.

I really really hope this movie will be as good as the previews make it look. If it sucks I'm going to be so bummed. Also, that is a very nice couch.

well they can pretty much make a movie about anything these days, but olivias in it so i guess they got my money already.

You weren't even born when Tron came out but I'll bet this somehow cramps the style of your childhood.

I was like 12. It was awesome. This looks awesomer. The dude won an Oscar. December is the new July 4 thanks to Avatar.

"I've always called Tron the original Matrix."

I'm pretty sure Plato's allegory of the cave is the original Matrix.

"Not to mention the music in the teaser is done by Daft Punk....a track they made specifically for the teaser. "

Wait... THAT was the Daft Punk music? That sounds like Dark Knight on an electric keyboard.

olivia is fiiine...

eep your comments relevant to the post

F#ck your couch ni&&a!

Bad actor. Bad 3D Tron world. Bad looking fem-bot. Bad David Bowie-riddler albino. Disappointing trailer.

Christian Dior shoes come in a wide range of styles, from casual flats to formal heels. The brand is known for its high-quality and attractive look. When you invest in a pair of Christian Dior shoes, you are certainly choosing an upscale, durable brand. Here are some tips on how to find Christian Dior shoes. www.christiandiorshoes.org

This pumped me up as much as seeing the Watchmen trailer for the first time.

fucking sweet!

If only this movie will deliver what that trailer hints at... December? Damn!

Tron has a nice crotch too.

@16 - No doubt about it. As far as philosophy; that goes directly to Plato's allegory of the cave. You are correct.

I meant more toward the actual film concept. People inside a computer was a concept brought to everyone's attention by Tron.

Either way, I'm stoked on This Tron Legacy idea. Especially since it's in 3D.

Have to wait and see I guess.

i;d watch that for a dollar!!

@16....you're a dork dude. It doesnt sound anything LIKE the music from the Dark Knight trailer. Go put you ears on tool. You're obviously one of those Dark Knight fan-boys who think its like the greatest movie ever made, when in reality, it really wasnt THAT good.

Also Daft Punk has written about 25 tracks for the film (not including the one in the teaser) so no need to judge and speculate about music from a trailer. Get a life bro....sounds like you need one BAD.

Christian Dior an*s' come in a wide range of styles, from casual rounds to formal oblongs. The brand is known for its high-quality and attractive look.

Multiple nergasm...down to the touch screen DOS 1.0.1 circa 1982. The trailer alone is cult status and seeing "Flynn's" again brought back some memories. No one, absolutely no one without exception, under the age of 25 (and this still might be too young) will truly appreciate this film. This (including the original) is the epitome of a snapshot in time of pure science fiction and electronic noir.

Lol at #8 (Matt) lecturing someone on how computers have evolved 10-fold since the 1980s.
Yep you got us there. We're speeding along with our 10x 32KB = 320 KB of RAM computers! Phwoar! 32 ***KILO*** BYTES WOW!... Who will ever need more than one mega bye!

for the record...i came.

that was sheer badassery!!

re: furniture

kubrick, anyone?

music does sound like the Dark Knight music, and like Inception. not knocking the trailer though, it's badass

There was a couch?

So when a bike jumps... does the headlight always turn off? Then back on later? Just saying.... hopefully the editing of the movie improves.

I'm excited to see this movie, I must go watch the original - again!

@31....you know what I mean tool.

fuck you all. trailer sucked except for the music

i really can't tell if this looks like shit or not...

woah!!! this is my number 1 most anticipated movie now. theres alot of cgi, i have hope in them they wont fuck up like gay ass speed racer did. ive never really watched tron before, i just discovered it from playing kingdom hearts 2. and better nobody bitch at me for that, im sorry i wasn't born in your generation.
