Disney is supposedly very close to firing up the ol’ Sequelomatic 5000 to copy-paste out another mediocre entry in the Tron series.
True Grit, the critically acclaimed Coen brothers’ film, came in second with $24.5 million, and Tron: Legacy snagged third with $18 million. But none of this matters, considering we are living in a cold, meaningless world where Little Fockers reigns supreme.
Christmas arrived last week for Tron Guy (aka Jay Maynard) when Tron: Legacy opened nationwide, but his local theater wouldn’t let him in.
TRON: Legacy actress Elizabeth Mathis has a lot going for her at the moment. She’s a professional model, she’s about to appear in the biggest sci-fi flick of the year, and in the eternal words of Derek Zoolander, she’s really, really, ridiculously good looking.
Ron Jeremy was pretty bummed when he didn’t make the cut for the porn version of TRON: Legacy. Not one to wallow in self pity, Jeremy set out to make his own TRON parody, complete with a healthy serving of Ron-on-Ron action.
With a name like Serinda Swan, it’s as though this TRON: Legacy actress was always destined to inhabit the role of professional sex symbol.
Kosinski answered our questions, inspired by both our interests and others’ complaints about Tron: Legacy and his next film, The Black Hole. He also saw Daft Punk’s faces!
Because you can never have enough Tron-related nudity, Playboy has decided to capitalize on Tron: Legacy’s marketing push with their own Tron-inspired pictorial.
If you want some Tron Legacy spoilers or just to geek out over the original Tron, Boxleitner was happy to entertain the attention in the year 2010.
Director: Joseph Kosinski Cast: Jeff Bridges, Michael Sheen, Olivia Wilde Synopsis: A virtual-world worker looks to take down the Master Control Program.
Time to rock out with our Tron-cocks out! The robots in Daft Punk have released this video for “Derezzed,” the first single from their Tron: Legacy score. If you haven’t heard it yet, it’s a pretty exciting series of beep-boop-bops.
They did it. Tron Legacy is everything you want it to be. It out Matrixes The Matrix with its special physics and gravity, and even more poignant metaphysical themes.
AICN hosted a contest where fans could enter their videos of other movies getting the Tron treatment for a chance to win a seat at the upcoming Butt-Numb-A-Thon. Tronitized Aliens, the champion, certainly earned its title.
Yay, it’s Tron Tuesday again… That means another sneak peak promotion clip thingy. This one looks under the hoods of the vehicles in Tron Legacy. Can we just see the damn movie already?!
When we finally see Kevin Flynn again in Tron: Legacy, he sort of resembles an even more famous Jeff Bridges character. You’ve seen that barefoot, bearded Flynn in the robe, but he even talks like The Dude. He describes digital jazz, man and doesn’t want anyone to “mess with his Zen.”
We don’t always agree on the happenings in the entertainment industry and we like to make our beefs public. There’s a lot of hubbub regarding the release of Disney’s Tron Legacy, but when it comes down to it, do you really care, or could you give a sh*t? Fight!
Tron: Legacy has released its international teaser trailer. It looks a lot like the teaser trailer that was already released, except it’s been cut in a slightly different manner, as not to upset the good people of Finland.
It’s “Tron Tuesday” (Observed) and that means another look at the film. This time, we have a scene that is going to loan so much inspiration to the porn parody.
Since porno and adorable kittens are the Internet’s chief exports, it was only a matter of time before a Tron: Legacy XXX porn parody rezzed into the real world. We’ll keep you posted when an all-kitten parody appears.
It’s Tron Tuesday again! That means more Tron Legacy stuff. If for some reason you weren’t itching to see Tron Legacy before, this third trailer should spark your interest. Unless you’re vehemently opposed to awesomeness.
Things just got really dangerous for Col. Hans’s wallet. Disney is opening a Tron: Legacy Pop-Up Shop in Culver City, CA for six weeks beginning November 19th. At the store you’ll be able to buy all kinds of neon-trimmed crap.
It's "Tron Tuesday" again everyone, and you know what that means! A new Tron Legacy clip that doesn't show the really good parts that you don't want spoiled anyway! Last week we saw Olivia Wilde, who plays Quorra, taking Sam on a Light Runner ride to unknown territory. Now that territory becomes not unknown, or rather, known.
In this new clip entitled "You're Here," Sam is reunited with his father Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), who's been going batty in a computer program for the past several decades. You know he's losing his mind because he stares off into the abyss and is dressed in all white. Only mad men and Boyz II Men dress in all white.

Disney released this clip of Tron Legacy that shows off Tron's car. Seems like a good car! It's got new 7-speed automatic transmission for improved fuel economy and performance, standard 22-inch wheels and tires, LCD instrument display, Standard Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control, an Advanced Blind Spot Warning (BSW) system, a 12-disc CD changer, and it kinda looks like the 1960's Batmobile humped a Skechers sneaker.
In the clip, Olivia Wilde's Quorra saves Sam Flynn from some kind of danger and the two escape by cyber-off-roading. Quick note: if you want to escape into darkness, a car traced with light may not be the ideal getaway vehicle.

As you probably know, Mel Gibson's cameo in The Hangover 2 fell through, and the role was given to Liam Neeson. While that is sad news, there's no reason for Mel to sweat it. There are pleanty of blockbusters in production, any one of which could help jump-start his scandal plagued career. We went ahead and did some research, and narrowed it down to nine upcoming films that Mel should focus on.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
While they have many adult fans, the Harry Potter films are for children. Children don't watch TMZ, so what better way for Mel to slip under the radar than with a cameo in the Deathly Hallows. It's a great plan, unless Mel's private church considers it witchcraft.
Bit by bit, Disney is revealing more of the Daft Punk-composed soundtrack for the upcoming Tron Legacy. The unofficial campaign name is Operation: Tron Legacy Blue Balls, as I can only take so much teasing before it starts to get painful.
In this new music-centered trailer, footage you've already seen is backed with the new Daft Punk track, "Derezzed." We've heard "The Game Has Changed," which is more of a "getting pumped to enter an arena" track. "Derezzed" is a more of a "cut his f*cking head off with that light disc!" track. It bumps, yo.
Check out the trailer after the jump…
Take a look quickly before it derezzes.

Nerd worlds have officially collided. In anticipation of the release of Disney's Tron Legacy, Marvel Comics has created variant covers to celebrate just how nerdy nerd things can get. Beginning in November, superheroes Captain America, Spider-man, Iron Man, and others will get rave-friendly neon lights added to their attire. If you speak fluent nerd, the issues featuring Tron variants, and spotlighted characters, are as follows:
• AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #651 TRON Variant, featuring Spider-Man
• AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant. featuring Spider-Woman
• AVENGERS ACADEMY #7 TRON Variant, featuring Quicksilver
• CAPTAIN AMERICA #612 TRON Variant, featuring Captain America
• INCREDIBLE HULKS #618 TRON Variant, featuring Ghost Rider
• INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #33 TRON Variant, featuring Iron Man
• NEW AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant, featuring Ms. Marvel
• SECRET AVENGERS #7 TRON Variant, featuring Moon Knight
• THOR #617 TRON Variant, featuring Thor
• WOLVERINE #4 TRON Variant, featuring Wolverine
In all honesty though, these re-interpretations look pretty sweet. I just wish it didn't feel so whorey. It's as if each of the above comics should come with a BK Broiler with a cutesy name like the BK Tronoiler. It doesn't sound the least bit appetizing, but you'd eat it because the pickles glow. Hot damn, I'm a marketing genius. Now to the lab to make pickles glow…

In this official pic from Tron Legacy, Daft Punk looks like Daft Punk, but cooler! Look at the blue. I want to go to there. This sneak peak at the French duo is the kickoff of what Disney is calling Tron Tuesdays, which will see the release of new materials for the film every Tuesday for the next ten weeks as the film’s release date approaches. I would be happy if they just released a new Daft Punk track from the film's score every week.
Oh, look what else we have. A new Daft Punk track from the film's score. The first 90 seconds of "The Game Has Changed" gets me so amped for the film that I want to cram a Cat 9 cable into the gapping hole at the base of my skull. I've always assumed that's the reason it's there anyway.
Check out the killer track after the jump…
Hey, everybody! James Cameron has something important to say about the dangers of using 3D technology in an inappropriate manner, so listen up!
I tend almost never to throw other films under the bus, but (Piranha 3D) is exactly an example of what we should not be doing in 3-D. Because it just cheapens the medium and reminds you of the bad 3-D horror films from the 70s and 80s, like Friday the 13th 3-D. When movies got to the bottom of the barrel of their creativity and at the last gasp of their financial lifespan, they did a 3-D version to get the last few drops of blood out of the turnip.
First of all, comparing Piranha 3D to Friday the 13th Part III is like comparing Kim Kardashian to the cast of "The View." Both are incredibly stupid, but one is still fun to watch if you're in the mood (for porn). Piranha 3D knew what it was supposed to be, and it hit the mark. Critics agree, and its Rotten Tomatoes ranking rivals that of Avatar (not that the two movies should be compared). Why should a film that is meant to be nothing more than a fun, summer gore-fest be excluded from using 3D technology? Not every 3D film needs to be a smug, ham-fisted retread of Dances with Wolves.
Second, if you want to talk about squeezing blood from a turnip, how about Avatar Special Edition, which is charging fans roughly $15 dollars to see a movie that was still in theaters less than a year ago. Oh, let's not forget the eight minutes of extra footage, which comes out to about $2 per new minute. At the end of the day, if people want to pay $15 to see Avatar again, good for Cameron. But if those same people want to pay to see fish dismembering topless girls, who is he to judge? (Vanity Fair via Movie Line)
The first event I caught at this year's Comic-Con was the Tron Legacy panel, moderated by Patton Oswalt, a favorite comedian of mine and yours. I'm not allowed to show you the footage that was screened, although you can read my brief description in my Thursday's adventures recap, but I have video of the panel discussion. You can also check out the awesome new trailer here.
All of the actors were in attendence (for a third year in a row), including Garret Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Michael Sheen, and Jeff Bridges, as well as director Joseph Kosinski. They enlighten us on the process of making the film, the flashy difference between Tron Legacy and Tron proper, and how Olivia kicked-ass in high heels. You really shouldn't need much more convincing to see the film when it opens on December 17, 2010.
