Tron 2

Recommended Posts

It seems a rarity for film directors and writers in this day and age to come up with a quality, ORIGINAL story that is not blatantly based on something else.

Wall-E is the only recent exception I can think of.

I think it's great. Tron 2.0 (the PC game) was vastly under-appreciated and I think any effort to revitalize Tron is fine by me.

Come on, Tron is awesome and cheesy and 80s and great and it has Jeff Bridges. How can you go wrong?

Tron was a cheesy and mindless 80s movie, but it was a fun watch (like a lot of 80s movies). Bringing Jeff Bridges back for the sequel is cool, and hopefully it'll be as enjoyable as the first.

Yeah... not enough original movies.

But at least it's a movie WORTH getting a sequel, instead of yet another Alien Vs. Predator or something.

Coop pretty much summed it up here.

This, along with the original Star Wars series, was a movie from my childhood. I really don't want to see it messed up (again, like Star Wars).

I loved TRON. When I was little I would rent it all the time.

I can't believe the sequel finally escaped Production Hell, and am more excited than ever.

Yeah I dunno about that. I mean, it's cool they're doing a film score and all, but I can't see their style fitting the movie unless they're changing the style a lot from the original, or unless the score they make is very different from their popular music.

They can do it.

A music artist can do anything.

I'm pretty sorta sure the score won't sound anything like their music.

Sure it may be electronic but a different style for a Disney movie.

BT has done movie scores and they don't sound anything like his music.

Everybody confuses the new Tron movie with the Tron game they made a while back, and I don't blame them. The game is Tron 2.0 and since that name was already taken they had to name the new movie TR2N. Despite the stupid name I am glad theres going to be a sequel Tron, as it was an obscure part of my childhood.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Pixar handling this movie? I had heard that the live action bits in Wall-E were in preparation for TR2N.

From what I've heard, Tron 2.0 was to coincide with the movie. Unfortunately, the movie fell into production hell, but Disney and the Company making the game, was more than determined to bring the game out.

As for Pixar handling the cg? That's really a good thing, if that's true.

The first TRON's music is stuck in my mind for some odd reason...

I can't believe they're resurrecting that monster. So are they going to make it entirely in CG?

I can't see their style fitting the movie

I think two guys who dress like robots and wrote an entire album based around the idea of technology vs humanity are probably able to write a film score about a computer world

I've seen the trailer they had at Comic Con for Tron: Legacy. So far, it doesn't look too bad... kinda good, actually. :-P

Also, for those who have seen it, does anyone else think Jeff Bridges looks a bit ominous? Like he's not a good guy anymore? :shock:

Almost corrupted or lost his mind.

Or just simply doesn't give damn anymore.
