I dunno', the original and it's popularity were unique by-products to the time in which it was made.

Computers and the mystery of what could be happening inside of them was so new and interesting back then, I don't know if the concept really has as much weight in todays techno-crazed culture. Don't get me wrong, I liked the original too, at the time. But I watched it again about a year ago and was struck at how outdated and 'retro-future' it felt to me now. The world has been speeding along since then, and unless they can update the technological concepts behind the whole plot of it, I think people might find it all humorously simplistic.

The original still makes me smile, but mostly for nostalgia's sake. I hope if they do this film, they figure out a way to make it fit in todays ever evolving techno-landscape. Making it 'not suck' is going to be difficult. I wish them luck, though. And if it is any good I'll be surprised and happy about it.

[align=left]Tron 2 Gets New Life with New Director

Tuesday September 11, 2007

Walt Disney Pictures is in final talks with commercial helmer Joseph Kosinski to develop and direct "the next chapter" of TRON, according to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. Live Planet's Sean Bailey is producing along with original's co-writer and director Steven Lisberger, who will oversee visual and script development.

The new take on the franchise will be penned by LOST writers Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. The 1982 film chronicled the adventures of a computer programmer who is sucked into in computer and forced to participate in the deadly virtual games he helped create. The film was a landmark of visual effects, being the first to use CG.

Brigham Taylor is shepherding for Disney.

Kosinski, who hasn't helmed a film since 1989, earlier in the year, signed on to direct Warner Bros. remake of LOGAN'S RUN.

Wow. Obviously, The Matrix comes to mind with the bullet time sequence but wow :o

The LightCycles and Halo suits - I don't know. :?

The laser disc-throwing is back, here's hoping for the return of laser jai-alai. :chainsaw:

In Tron, the characters are like "inside" the computer kinda. Its hard to describe. The characters are programs in the computer. Oh, and that guy everyone went crazy about is Jeff Bridges, who was in the original Tron movie.

This guy who was played by Bridges in the original is a programmer. He get's sucked in to the computer world somehow, think fat guy stuck in internet.

All of the characters he encounters in the electronic world are look alikes of people he knew in real life, the people in real life are called their "users". So you would be a user and your program you create looks like you if you went into the system.

The big bad corporation is the bad guys in it and Tron and his buddy Flynn have to defeat them by taking a frisbee off their back and throwing it at them.

Tron action figures were the coolest! Light cycles rule, that was my favorite toy.

Whoever authorized that is incredibly stupid. Sure makes sense to give $300 million to a non-franchise that nearly nobody remembers.

I just saw Tron again, and i just noticed that Michael Dudikoff plays a conscript (blink and you miss him.

Don't know if it's old news, but it was a cool trivia - for me anyways. :whateva:

I'm a huge Tron fan, saw it originally at the theater, worked with Steve Lisberger's wife a few years ago and we talked about a Tron sequel back then(Disney wasn't going for it). Some of these designs are really cool, although this one-

looks like the Apple iCycle.

I like it, especially the new recognizer, but I think the people need more electric colors around them. They're kinda plain.

I can't tell you how many frisbees I covered in glow in the dark paint when I was a kid. I never did figure out a way to attach it to my back well, and for some reasonmy friend and I always fought over who was going to be flyn.

Plot synopsis from official site:
[spoil]
[align=left]
All TRON movies and stories take place in a digital world where computer programs - of any type - often take on behavior and characteristics of people. The world is filled with code that drives the actions of programs and defines all the rules of objects, like high-tech vehicles, landscapes, and architecture where programs live and work up to, and sometimes beyond, their programming.

There have been two digital realms. The first was created within Encom's mainframe where, in 1982, Kevin Flynn found himself after being digitized by a lazer when the Master Control Program sensed his intrusion. In this world, programs physically looked like their users, or those who created them. While programs had specific functions, like accounting or security, they had the freedom to do their jobs in their own way. The Master Control Program stifled this system and instead of doing their functions, programs were often sent to the Game Grid. After Flynn and his allies removed the tyranny and corruption of the Master Control Program, the system flourished.

Based on all he'd learned in the first digital world, Kevin Flynn built a second, improved realm he called the "TRON System" that was designed to develop and evolve far beyond the first. By perfecting digitization with a laser, and housing the new Grid on servers in the basement of his arcade, Flynn could enter and leave as often as he liked to foster and research his system. It was a brand new world capable of flourishing in unimaginable and astounding ways. And it did.

With a wife, and then with Sam, his son, Flynn found it harder and harder to make time for work and family - though he made it clear that he was onto something that would change the world. Then, one night in 1989, Flynn left for work and never came home.

While 28 years have passed in the real world, over 1000 years have passed in the TRON one. As one might expect, the passing of so many cycles has allowed for numerous events and historic moments. And now some of those stories will be told.[/align][/spoil]






oh, and you might want to save this to drive: 7 minutes of comic con bootleg footage: Tron Legacy Comic Con 2010 Bootleg.mov

some of Daft Punk's soundtrack can be listened to here: hypetrak.com.

Thanks for the plot synopsis :heavymetal: :heavymetal: . I hadn't actually looked into what exactly this story was about, but the maquettes I saw posted somewhere recently looked great. All digitized faces, really wild lookin. Sounds like an ineresting story too, and not being afraid to show it to other directors and whoevers to get input, well it all sounds like it's going to be a lot better than I had thought. My expectations just went up. Hope that's not a bad thing.

You know I have to say the second trailer didn't thrill me as much as the first with all the CG face shots of Clu.

But this ComicCon footage has got me excited again about the movie. The footage is a good combination of scary and cool, no doubt credit has to go to Daft Punk's score along with the obviously darker visual tone.

Content aside (Tron was way ahead of its time), the original Tron is nearly unwatchable by today's standards. I'm not even sure it's a good movie in 1982 but then I think about how people thought that Superman I and II were good movies when they were released. That aside I've been mightily impressed with everything I've seen from Tron Legacy.

My biggest problem with Tron is that while the visuals are sure to entertain in this instalment I'm not sure the story is all that interesting. They're really going to need to push the father/son angle for it to work as a good movie, otherwise we're looking at pretty pictures glossing the nerdiest story concept ever conceived. Obviously they're going to sex it up in 2010 to attract all sorts of new viewers.

I have high hopes. We'll see.

Superman: The Movie is fantastic. It's dated in all the best ways. I find its general 70sness in the adult scenes contribute to the overall magic of that film. I think it's a nearly perfect portrayal of Superman. It's FUN and with just the right amount of camp that it doesn't come across as the 60s Batman and not nearly as much cheese and general lack of inspiration as most modern comic book inspired films.

Aside from some fun moments, the villains, Reeve in general and that battle sequence in Metropolis, Superman II is a fairly average-mediocre film. I've always disagreed with the postulation that it's supposedly one of the best comic hero movies of all time.

TRON is something that I managed to completely skip over in my lifetime aside from various references. And I was heavily influenced by the culture of its time! It's just a movie that I do not believe will resonate with today's audiences. I may eat my words, but I foresee a very disappointing opening. It'll be average returns at best.

New clip-music video based on Daft Punk’s soundtrack song “Derezzed” Personally, I’m much more excited for the Daft Punk soundtrack than I am for the film. Though, I have to admit that the movie looks to be well conceived.
