23 Minutes Of Tron Legacy

I was lucky enough to get tickets to catch a twenty three minute glimpse of Disney’s (very) long awaited sequel to Steve Lisberger’s 1982 Tron.

The sequel is called Tron: Legacy.

Now, I love the original so I sat in the cinema really excited and a bit nervous, but as soon as the disclaimer lit up the massive 3D IMAX screen I felt at ease.

The footage began with Sean Flynn, played by Garrett Hedlund, getting to his dad’s games arcade, Flynn’s.  The place looked the same.  The arcade sound effects and the 1980’s music playing added a nice nostalgic feel.

Then we are zapped in the Grid…

We are returned to the immense neon city, which felt familiar yet completely freshened, as we have advanced massively CGI wise.  It’s unbelievable. Yet looks and feels real.

There is come incredible 3D work (and some iffy bits too, actually the first scene was in 2D for some reason…) the best 3D I’ve so far.

We get to see Jeff Bridges near the end of the glimpse. . which was amazing.

Daft Punk’s film score fits perfectly.  I cant think of anyone else who could have the OST for this film.  That retro futuristic sound fits Tron to a tee.

When the clip ended the cinema was silent…  That can only be a good sign.

17th December is the day we the full film.  Ages away.

    Ah wrong word used there, the bit about the first scene being in 2D.

    It’d be nice if all the real world stuff was in 2D to give it ‘Wizard of Oz’ leap to colour feel when you enter the 3D game grid…
