TRON Legacy

For those who haven't caught on yet, Disney is reviving Tron for a new generation with a sequel! A synopsis for the film's story along with the above poster and the new image below were revealed recently:

"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), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (JEFF BRIDGES), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the digital world of Tron where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant Quorra (OLIVIA WILDE), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey of escape across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous."

The film will feature many environments and characters that are completely computer generated and of course be in stereoscopic 3-D. Live action shots were also filmed with cameras that record at 1000 frames per second to produce some amazing slow-motion sequences! The entire score for the film will be going for highly appropriate electronica tunes composed by none other than Daft Punk!

A conceptual trailer was made to help establish the film's style and visuals and it was revealed at this years Comicon. You can view it here:
