DVD Review: Tron Legacy

6 April 2011 12:00 AM, PDT | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Upon second viewing of Tron Legacy, Disney's follow-up to the first CG film made 27 years ago, I find myself forgiving some of the movie's flaws in favor of what it provides upon casual viewing: nice eye candy.

My problems with Legacy remain pretty much the same as when I reviewed the movie last December. Much of the film lacks the ability to make the viewer care much for the estrangled father-son relationship between Jeff Bridges' Kevin Flynn and Garret Hedlund's Sam Flynn, and I suspect that may be due to director Joseph Kosinski's shortcomings. He was wrestling with a technologically complex and expensive movie as his first studio film, and I suspect that he focused on getting an adequate performance out of his two leads but would up concentrating on making sure that all the processing power and rendering time was getting put to good use. Again, I »

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment recently provided us with an interview with Steven Lisberger about his experience making Tron: Legacy. Here's what he had to say.

How long did it take to get the green light for Tron: Legacy?

Steven Lisberger: We started discussions at Disney about 11 years ago, but there have been rumors of a sequel for much longer than that. Over the years, I've seen numerous Disney executives go from black hair to grey - and the sequel itself has changed and gone through many different phases. When the »

'Tron Legacy': Dive Into The DVD With Bruce Boxleitner

5 April 2011 7:48 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

by Chris Arrant

Last fall’s “Tron Legacy” was one of the most anticipated movies of all time. From the teaser film released at Comic-Con International in San Diego years before to the elaborate events staged across the country, “Tron Legacy” was one of the most unique films in recent memory — and that’s before you factor in the special effects. But for “Tron” fans, this was something they’ve been waiting for since 1982. And they weren’t alone.

For actor Bruce Boxleitner, the resurgence of the “Tron” franchise 15+ years after the original was a chance to continue the story and give back to the fans who have approached him throughout the years expressing their love for the original film and the desire for more.

Although he starred in two major television hits in “Scarecrow & Mrs. King” and “Babylon 5,” Boxleitner will always be best remembered by the world at »

Review: ‘Tron’ and ‘Tron: Legacy’

29 March 2011 7:03 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Someone had to go first.

As computers were getting faster and significantly more sophisticated, some producer was going to be the first to have computers handle the special effects in a movie. As it turns out, Walt Disney, which pioneered feature-length animation, took the plunge in 1982 with Tron. The film, starring Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, and David Warner, was visually stunning in its day as you felt immersed in the emerging video game world. The mediocre story took a backseat to the imaginative light cycle races and glowing disc battles. Audiences were intrigued, just enough to rake in $33 million at the box office for a $17 million production so it almost made money using the math of the time.

Flashfoward 28 years and as computers have taken control over special effects in all media, the time struck many as right to go back and revisit the world of Tron. Disney moved cautiously, »

Tron 3 Video Uncovers Original Villain Edward Dillinger!

29 March 2011 1:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

At the beginning of the month we revealed a 10-minute video from the bonus features of next week's release of Tron: Legacy on Blu-ray and DVD which was entitled The Next Day: Flynn Lives, the events of which, bridge the original Tron to Tron: Legacy to a supposed Tron: Legacy Sequel.

Today, a new clip has been uncovered as an easter egg from the American Blu-ray release of the film and features David Warner's Edward Dillinger from the original Tron, and his son, Edward Dillinger Jr. played by Cillian Murphy in Tron: Legacy. This short clip features them talking on a chat service about the events of "The Next Day" and Sam taking over Encom.

The question is, will David Warner be back for the next Tron movie? The voice in the video sure sounds like him. You be the judge.

Last month, we brought you the announcement from Walt Disney Pictures about Tron: Legacy becoming available on DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D on April 5th. The original Tron will also be hitting DVD and Blu-ray on the same day, under the title, Tron: The Original Classic. The April 5th release marks the first time the original Tron will be available on disc since the 20th anniversary collector’s edition hit stores in 2002.

Now, a new 10-minute short from the bonus features was either leaked online, or officially leaked by Disney. The short, entitled Tron: The Next Day not only bridges the events of the original Tron to Tron: Legacy and sets us the third installment in the franchise, it also explains the origin of the Flynn Lives viral campaign and acts as a final pay-off to those of us who  worked through the Arg, leading up to the film’s release. »

14 March 2011 2:25 AM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Rumor has started running wild, suggesting there will be another movie after "Tron Legacy". The speculation of "Tron 3" arises after a more-than-ten-minute epilogue clip for the DVD release of the Garrett Hedlund-starring movie hits the web, and gives a lot of hints of the sequel.

Titled "Tron: The Next Day", the footage opens with a flash back of the "Flynn Lives" movement that took place during the years between the original "Tron" movie and the "Legacy" follow-up. It then previews the situation at Encom corporation after Sam's revolt in the second film.

Roy "Ram" Kleinberg who is played by Dan Shor in the 1982 movie will make a return should the third film be made. It turns out that Ram was the mastermind behind the "Flynn Lives" campaign. He's seen frantically destroying all data and files that prove his involvement before Alan (Bruce Boxleitner) comes to confront him.

‘Tron: The Next Day’ – Watch the epilogue to Tron: Legacy

13 March 2011 1:03 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Ok, now this is the definition of Epic. Apparently one of the extras that will appear on the Blu-ray and DVD release of Tron: Legacy, this new short film, titled The Next Day, is the first of two TR3N teasers.

It explains the origins of the Flynn Lives campaign (which ran in the lead up to the release of Tron: Legacy) and who was in charge of it; plus it features the epic pairing of Dan Shor as Ram and Bruce Boxleitner as Alan Bradley! Tron: The Next Day also explains what happens after Sam Flynn takes over Encom at the end of the second Tron movie.

The second Tron 3 teaser is reportedly a hidden Easter Egg in the DVD/Blu-Ray and will reportedly feature Olivia Wilde as Quorra and Cillian Murphy as Ed Dillinger Jr., who is being touted as the villain of the forthcoming third movie. »

Tron: The Next Day: Tron: Legacy Blu-ray Video: Bruce Boxleitner

13 March 2011 9:20 AM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

The Tron: The Next Day video from the Tron: Legacy Blu-ray has been released. Bruce Boxleitner, Dan Shor, and Garret Hedlund star in Tron: The Next Day. The video details what happened after Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) disappeared in the 1980s, Alan Bradley (Bruce Boxleitner) taking over Encom in his absence, and the beginning of the Flynn Lives movement. We are also shown what happened to Encom and shown the corporate environment after the events in Tron: Legacy. It’s very cool video but I can’t imagine that Walt Disney actually wants this video on the Internet as it serves as an inducement to purchase the film on Blu-ray when it is released. I doubt they know about this yet since its the weekend so I would watch it sooner rather than later before it is taken down. Tron: Legacy is directed by Joseph Kosinski and also stars Jeff Bridges, »
