Comic Con 09: Tron Legacy Trailer
This was actually footage released to the Comic Con '08 crowd, but it has just become available for all to see. From what I understand, director Joseph Kosinski put this together to prove that technology has come far enough since the first Tron movie to warrant a second journey into that universe (kind of like Robert Rodriguez pumping out that opening scene for Sin City [you know, with Josh Hartnett] and shopping it around to Frank Miller and the actors to get the rest of the movie made).
I've never seen the original Tron (I hope to remedy this shortly), but this teaser trailer for the sequel looks really badass. I'm very excited about this movie now, whereas before I had little to no interest in it at all. I'd highly recommend checking it out below.
Here's the plot synopsis (thanks to Slashfilm for providing it): TRON Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) [a great up-and-coming actor - Ed.], the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father’s 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 Kevin’s loyal confidant (Olivia 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.
