Second Opinion - Tron: Legacy (2010)

26 December 2010 2:12 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tron: Legacy, 2010.

Directed by Joseph Kosinski.

Starring Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Bruce Boxleitner, Olivia Wilde, Michael Sheen and James Frain.

Synopsis:

Investigating the disappearance of his father Kevin (Jeff Bridges), Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) is drawn into the digital world of 'The Grid'.

Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) is looking for his father, Kevin (Jeff Bridges), missing since 1989. Drawn into a dark and dusty arcade, Sam stumbles across his father’s old computer, still in sleep mode from 20 years ago (who’s paying that electricity bill?). He activates a laser, the laser zaps him into Flynn’s computer.

So we’ve stepped through the wardrobe, fallen down the rabbit-hole, followed the yellow brick road. So? What’s the twist? Why is this different? Backtrack a moment and re-consider that tagline. Sam Flynn gets zapped into Kevin Flynn’s dusty old computer, locked away beneath an abandoned arcade. His father’s computer. »

Movie Review: ‘Tron: Legacy’

17 December 2010 6:31 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Editor's Note: Germain's review, which originally appeared earlier this month, has been republished for opening weekend... I almost don't want to say how much I liked Tron: Legacy. Going into a film cold is always the best way to see it and before seeing this heavily marketed, long gestating sequel, I'd unfortunately heard several well-known critics shower the film with negative adjectives, suitably lowering my expectations. With that mindset, I enjoyed the film immensely. So, I apologize if I rebuild any of those lowered expectations when I say that Tron: Legacy is the epic, thrilling adventure you were hoping for, complete with all of the flaws so commonly made in a Hollywood blockbuster. Mere seconds into Tron: Legacy, the film sucks its audience in. We hear the voice of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) explaining The Grid, a digital space he created years ago in the first Tron film, and the »

Who’S It For? Those who loved the first one. Plus, anyone who wants to see something visually spectacular. You also have to be willing to sit through some slow parts.

Review: Tron Legacy

17 December 2010 1:10 AM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

27 years have passed since the summer of 1982 and the arrival of Tron. Much has been written about the film's most important historical point, that being the first true use of computer generated (CG) imagery for special effects. Today, CG has become commonplace in movies and even television shows. Tron's digital 1982 world may look as dated as an original Apple II computer does to an iPhone but its core idea -- a world existing inside the computer where beings lived and died fighting in gladiatorial video game arenas -- still has a strong attraction to a lot of us.

Director Joseph Kosinski and his creative team hold homage to the original Tron to the extent that they have reassembled all of what's fondly remembered from that imperfect '82 Disney movie. But don't think of Tron Legacy so much as a direct sequel. Instead, this is very much a reboot of »

'Legacy' of the Future

13 December 2010 1:03 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Meet Joseph Kosinski, the maestro behind "Tron: Legacy," the highly anticipated sequel to 1982's "Tron." This 36-year-old first-time feature filmmaker studied mechanical engineering at Stanford and received his master's degree in architecture at Columbia. Kosinski worked less than a year as a commercial director, yet his campaigns for the Xbox 360 games Gears of War and Halo 3 earned him awards from the Association of Independent Commercial Producers. He was already well versed in all the latest special effects techniques—he got to use the 3-D fusion camera system James Cameron developed—and he assembled people from the automotive industry and the world of architecture to collaborate on this groundbreaking film opening Dec. 17."Tron: Legacy" marks a lot of firsts in cinematic history. It's the first film to integrate a fully digital head and body based upon an existing actor, creating the younger version of Kevin Flynn, Jeff Bridges' character; the »

Updated: Ok, so I’ve had way to many emails from you guys pointing out that the Oscar form isn’t working for some of you this time around. I’ve put my best team of problem solvers on the issue and they can’t work it out, but 7 or 8 of you have told me it’s not working for you… so I presume there’s many more out there. To date we’ve had a little less entries than last time, so this problem is too much for me to ignore.

My only solution for now is for you to email your picks to editor@obsessedwithfilm.com. I will be collating results on Monday or Tuesday, so you’ve got a bit of time left to enter.

Now you’ve read our 1999 Academy Awards retrospective, here’s your chance to re-write history without the hassle of going back in »

Interview: Olivia Wilde Talks ‘Tron: Legacy’

10 December 2010 8:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] On November 19th, I had the opportunity to participate in a day of roundtable interviews with the cast and crew of Tron Legacy. I also conducted a couple of one-on-one discussions with the filmmakers and screenwriters (but that will come later). The plan is to post one of the interviews every day up until release. The first interview is with Olivia Wilde, who plays Quorra in the movie. Leading up to the release of the movie, I really wasn't expecting much from Olivia in the film, as the trailers and clips have played her off as not much more than the sexy attractive lady of the Tron world. I'm surprised to report that Wilde was one of my favorite parts of the movie. I actually wish that we got more time with her character. Another equal surprise was that Olivia Wilde is not just your usual good looking actress. She's »

Tron: Legacy review

3 December 2010 1:44 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

At last, Tron: Legacy’s here - but does the film live up to the fabulous imagery we’ve seen so far? Here’s James’ review...

Almost three decades ago, the original Tron movie caused a generation of budding computer geeks to break out their Commodore 64s and wonder what might be inside. Can the sequel take what made the original so inspiring and bring it up to date?

It certainly seems that way. While the world of Tron: Legacy is replete with references to the original movie, it treats itself as a mostly fresh take on the franchise. The familiar elements are in place, but if you’ve never seen the original, you won’t be excluded. True, you might not feel the tingle of familiarity when the Recognizers approach – but their monolithic threat looms even larger today than it did the first time round. All the references in »

30 Greatest Gay Actors #14: Stephen Fry

1 December 2010 11:21 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Actor, writer, journalist, comedian, television presenter and film director Stephen Fry began making a name for himself back in in various university drama clubs and performances where he became friends with fellow students Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, and Hugh Laurie, all of whom would be his future professional collaborators. His career kicked off immediately thereafter, beginning with the television comedy Al Fresco. His hit Broadway revival Me and My Girl made him a millionaire and won  him a Tony Award (1987). The 80s also saw Fry do a large amount of work for television, including the comedy shows A Bit of Fry & Laurie and Blackadder.

During the late 1980s, Fry began a film career as well, appearing in supporting roles in such films as A Fish Called Wanda (1988) and A Handful of Dust (1988). His first major role was that of the eponymous Peter in Peter’s Friends (1992) and later played »

Olivia Wilde is On Her Way Up

Olivia Wilde in Tron: Legacy

Photo: Walt Disney Pictures I recently attended the Tron: Legacy junket here in Beverly Hills. It was my first junket for RopeofSilicon and quite an eye-opener if I may say. I did a couple of one on ones that I will be delivering soon, but it was one of the round table sessions that floored me the most.

Olivia Wilde walked into a room filled with ten film journalists last Friday and, as my pals Curt and Cris Kirkwood of the Meat Puppets used to say, "charmed the pants right off of us". And it wasn't the first time. We had all watched the film the night before. Believe me she did the same thing in the film as well. There's a three-week moratorium on me giving a review of Tron: Legacy but I don't think Disney minds me saying that Olivia has big screen talent. »

Olivia Wilde, Wet and Wonderful in Vanity Fair (photos)

10 November 2010 8:08 PM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Olivia Wilde has a intellectual pedigree. Her father and uncle, both named Alexander Cockburn are fiery Irish journalists and her mother, Leslie Cockburn, is a producer for CBS’s “60 Minutes.” So how did she arrive at the name Wilde? She picked it in honor of author Oscar Wilde the Irish writer, poet and aesthete who captivated Victorian London society, but died penniless in Paris. Needless to say, Olivia, 26, shares the same free spirit, which is on display in the latest issue of Vanity Fair. »

Sheen Steals The Show With Bawdy Britannia Awards Speech

5 November 2010 12:01 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Betty White, Jeff Bridges and directors Ridley and Tony Scott were big winners at the Britannia Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday night but Frost/Nixon star Michael Sheen stole the show with a bawdy acceptance speech honouring his Wilde co-star Stephen Fry, the event's host.

The British comedian was left red-faced with laughter as Sheen recalled their love scenes together on the set of the 1997 Oscar Wilde biopic, while collecting his British Artist of the Year award at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts/Los Angeles prizegiving.

Sheen started his speech by suggesting he was only being honoured "so I won't keep showing up" (at the awards), and added that The Twilight Saga: New Dawn co-star Dakota Fanning and fellow Brit Carey Mulligan had only shown up to present the award to him because "they thought they were here to talk about Martin Sheen".

He then ripped into host Fry, calling the comic, "The man I had my first screen kiss with," and adding, "You never cease to engorge me."

He then had Fry and the audience in fits of laughter, stating the host was "the first man to give me a swift b**gering," and then recalled he still has "acid flashbacks", adding "I walk down the street and get an odd quiver."

Other winners at the star-studded tribute to Brits in Hollywood were the Scott Brothers, who received Britannia Award for Contributions to Worldwide Entertainment from Rosario Dawson and movie mogul Jerry Bruckheimer; Bridges, who took home the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film and White, who was honoured with the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy.

Inception star Marion Cotillard was also on hand to present her director Christopher Nolan with the John Schlesinger Britannia Award for Directing. »

First "Spy Pics" of Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law on the Set of Sherlock Holmes 2

22 October 2010 1:20 PM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The boys are back. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law, who effortlessly breathed new life into Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous creations, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, in director Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes, have been captured on the set of Sherlock Holmes 2 in a trio of "spy pics."

The sequel, also directed by Ritchie, was written by Kieran and Michele Mulroney (Paper Man) and will feature Holmes' nemesis, the master criminal Professor Moriarty, who was briefly glimpsed in the first movie, as the primary antogonist. Moriarty has yet to be cast, though a recent rumor has linked Jared Harris (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) to the role. Stephen Fry (Wilde) has joined the cast as Sherlock's older brother, Mycroft Holmes, and Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Swedish adaptation) will play an unspecified leading role, possibly a French Gypsy who may or »
