TRON: Legacy

Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Five Great Gifts For the Kids

TRON: LEGACY - Light Cycle toy

It smells like the holidays again, from the earthy aroma of fresh cut Christmas Trees to the sweaty scent of desperation the hard times have brought on to many hard-working people. However, one thing you can’t escape (whether you’re rich or poor), is the gift of, well, giving. And every year, there’s usually some kind of big-ticket item that has parents clamoring to the toy aisles in order to please their kids with and usually they end up empty-handed (or paying through the nose to some disputable third-party seller). Anyone remember last year’s Zhu Zhu Pets. Couldn’t find them at […]Read On »

While the world of TRON was first envisioned by Syd Mead in 1982, Daniel Simon was given the task of updating and taking that world’s vehicles (light cycles and all) and updating them for 2010 in TRON: LEGACY (due out Friday). The end result is a stunning universe filled with an array of different designs from from off-road racers to the re-envisioned light cycles. It was a challenge Simon was more than up for as the story finds Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) sucked into a computer grid searching for his long lost dad Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) who has been […]Read On »

How do you pick up the pieces of a cult classic like 1982’s TRON and turn it into the next big mega-budget, must-see high-tech 3-D blockbuster? It all starts with the script and the right take on the material which screenwriters Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (who are former LOST scribes) figured out early on. They were fans of the original and wanted to take elements of the original film and the character of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) and progress the story to the present. The end result is TRON: LEGACY which focuses on Flynn’s grown-up son Sam (Garrett Hedlund) […]Read On »

If any movie can be viewed as this year’s AVATAR, TRON: LEGACY certainly has a shot. Not only was it shot in 3-D (instead of being converted in post), it also features one of the  most visually arresting and immersive science-fiction worlds this side of the STAR WARS franchise. TRON: LEGACY (which opens Friday) picks up the pieces from the under-appreciated 1982 cult classic TRON which put Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) into a computer world where users and programs are pitted against each other He survived, but Flynn went back into that world (after the events in the first film) […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: TRON: LEGACY producer (and original creator/director) Steven Lisberger gets back on the grid

It’s rare for a film to spawn a sequel (with some of the main cast) 28 years after the release of the original, but TRON has managed that feat and exceeded all expectations. The original TRON, co-written and directed by Steven Lisberger was a ground-breaking film that took computer programmer Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) inside a computer where he fought against nefarious programs inside the “grid.” It was unlike anything out there, but its concept was perhaps way ahead of its time, which is why the film wasn’t the mega-success it should have been. Now, audiences are ready and totally […]Read On »
