Who’s lookin’ forward to the “Tron” remake a/k/a “Tron: Legacy” (in 3D)? I am. I usually oppose remakes, but this is an exception. I recently watched the 1982 “Tron” original, starring Jeff Bridges and the very hot Bruce Boxleitner, and it definitely didn’t deserve the near-universal panning it got from critics. I thought it was a cool movie and ahead of its time in terms of graphics and technology for that time. It stands the test of time for me and was one of the most underrated movies of the ’80s.
Disney brings out the new version, “Tron: Legacy,” for the holiday box office, debuting it on December 17th. Not only is it in 3D, but the soundtrack features cool techno songs from groups like Daft Punk. Below are the trailer and a cool extended scene, and you’ll note that Boxleitner–who has aged well and still looking good in his 60s–and Bridges re-appear. Looks cool, and I predict it will be a hit.
