Disney opted to limit the Thursday showings of the George Clooney sci-fier to what it dubbed “movie palaces” in order to highlight director Brad Bird’s vision. It noted that “Tomorrowland” scored a $1,077 theatre average, which would have given it $2.7 million had it played on 2,500 screens and $3.2 million if it had been launched at 3,000 theaters — placing it in the same range as “World War Z” and “Tron: Legacy” with $3.6 million, “X-Men: First Class” at $3.3 million, “Inception” at $3 million, and “Interstellar at $2.7 million.
“Tomorrowland,” which carries a $180 million price tag, opens Friday at 3,972 U.S. locations. It’s on track to debut to $40 million for the three-day weekend and around $50 million for the four-day period. “Tomorrowland” also opens in 65 foreign markets.

We now all live in a world where one lucky individual not only owns a Tron: Legacy motorcycle, but is also able to ride around on it and make people that they drive past burn with envy as it lights up. And while that.s truly a spectacular and uplifting tale that proves we live a wonderful age, the only truly negative aspect of this story is that I.m not the one who owns it. which is mostly due to the fact that I don.t have a spare $77,000 lying around to spend on movie memorabilia. According to Rm Auctions the rather spiffing Tron: Legacy-inspired motorcycle - which rivals Terminator 2: Judgement Day.s 1990 Harley Davidson, The Great Escape.s 1961 Triumph Trophy Bird, and Easy Rider.s Harley as the greatest movie bike ever - sold on Saturday May 2nd for the impressive amount. This of course means »
If you've always wanted to get your hands on a piece of Tron's legacy, a fully-functional Lightcycle could be yours for around £50,000.
A working model of the futuristic vehicle was just sold at auction by Rm Sotheby for $77,000 (£49,927) to an unnamed bidder.
The movie replica collectable was included in the Andrews Collection, which also featured a 1962 Ferrari 400 that raised a whopping $7,645,000.
The Lightcycle features a direct drive electric motor with lithium batteries and a computer-controlled digital electronic transmission, but sadly doesn't leave light ribbons behind in its wake.
If you don't have a spare £50,000, Neca's Lightcycle toy is also pretty nifty: »
Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' dancing, with Garrett Hedlund on the right Down memory lane: Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' images At the time best known as The Twilight Saga's conflicted human Bella Swan, Kristen Stewart was cast as the exuberant Marylou in Walter Salles' film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's iconic 1950s novel On the Road. Salles had been impressed with Stewart's pre-Twilight work in Sean Penn's Into the Wild. Based on LuAnne Henderson, Kerouac's close buddy Neal Cassady's first wife, Marylou is described as a "beautiful little sharp chick." Apparently, one who also likes to move seductively to the sound of music – as can be attested by the Kristen Stewart picture above, which first came out online in early 2011. Besides Stewart, On the Road also features Garrett Hedlund – at the time best known for Tron: Legacy – as Dean Moriarty, »

Gwyneth Paltrow silver dress on the Oscars' Red Carpet Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards Donning a shining silver dress, Gwyneth Paltrow arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Paltrow's latest movie, Country Strong, was up for a Best Song Oscar. It lost to the Toy Story 3 ditty "We Belong Together," by Randy Newman. More than a decade ago, Gwyneth Paltrow took home the Best Actress Oscar for John Madden's Shakespeare in Love (1998), a romantic comedy-drama also featuring Joseph Fiennes (as William Shakespeare), Judi Dench, Geoffrey Rush, and this year's Best Actor Oscar winner, Colin Firth (The King's Speech). Paltrow's (moderately) gender-bending Shakespeare in Love heroine remains her only Oscar-nominated performance to date. Directed by Shana Feste, Country Strong fared decently at the U.S. box office, but not as well as some had expected. Besides Gwyneth Paltrow, the cast includes »

Tron is a 1980’s classic movie. The film, which starred Jeff Bridges, captured the imagination of a generation of film goers. In 2010 came follow-up film Tron: Legacy, and starred Garret Hedlund as Sam Flynn, the son of Jeff Bridges’ character from the first film, Jeff Bridges and Olivia Wilde as warrior algorithm Quorra. Rumours have been circulating for a while that a third film is underway and recently it has seemed like this is much more of a possibility.
Whilst at Tribeca Film Festival Wilde gave an update on the status of the project and revealed that we will see more of her character, though this time in the real world…
“The delay has only ever been story, finding the right story. It hasn’t been anything else. There’s never been a time where we wanted to go and then schedules got in the way. It’s only been like, »

Wilde made a memorable first impression in the franchise in Tron: Legacy as the warrior algorithm Quorra, who was not afraid of kicking a little butt to protect tech prodigy Sam Flynn.
Wilde recently told Collider that she is excited to follow up Quorra leaving the Grid for the real world at the end of Tron: Legacy.
"I love this character of Quorra so much and I've built her with Joe Kosinski and we took her such a long way from what was written to what we made," she said. "I mean, I fought for her to be this kind of androgynous child and that's so not what you typically see in these movies, so I'm so grateful that the producers let me play with her and make her this strange little being. »
It looks as though Disney is finally ready to press ahead again with a new Tron movie. Since the release of Tron: Legacy back in 2010, there's been continual chatter about a Tron 3, reuniting Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde. Yet until recently, there's been precious little sign of progress.
"The delay has only ever been story, finding the right story. It hasn't been anything else", she affirmed. "So, in the past year, the right story kind of came together and we felt 'oh, this actually – this might be the right one to tell’. And, you know, there’s still a lot »
Talk of Tron 3 – which may be titled Tron: Ascension – stirred up recently when a series of Tweets and innocent production notices appeared on the web. Which meant the entire blogosphere blew up over the threequel’s existence. Since then we’ve yet to receive official confirmation from the studio on the follow up to 2010’s Tron: Legacy. However, one of the stars of the franchise, Olivia Wilde, spoke to Collider this week and their chat seemingly provided verification of its own. To start, the actress responded to the supposed October production start date:
“You know, I’ve heard the same. I think there’s a lot of people really excited to make it happen within Disney and in the world, and we’ve been dreaming of making it since we finished Legacy so I would be thrilled.”
Part of that dream has involved what a majority of sequels require: a solid foundation. »

If you’re a first-time film director, and you’re making a dark, female drama, well then it helps to have a marquee actress in your corner. Such was the case for Dp-turned-director Reed Morano and her film Meadowland. While it’s typically the indie director (and producers) who face the uphill battle of getting a script to their wish headliner, Morano had the good fortune of being sought out by Tron: Legacy actress Olivia Wilde. “I was begging (the director),” says Wilde… »
Tron 3 was in the planning stages well before Tron: Legacy hit theaters in 2010, but five years passed before the sequel moved forward. Everything started to come together quite quickly once it was announced, with director Joseph Kosinski set to return along with leads Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde. In a recent interview with Collider, Olivia Wilde claims that the only delay on the movie was breaking the story. They needed to get it right before they prematurely told everyone it was happening. She then confirmed that the sequel will pick up shortly after the events seen in Tron: Legacy, with a story that revolves around her character Quorra existing in the real world alongside Sam Flynn. About the screenplay she says:
"I love this character of Quorra so much and I've built her with Joe Kosinski and we took her such a long way from what was written to what we made. »
We’ve been talking Tron 3 ever since Tron: Legacy hit theaters back in December 2010, but it wasn’t until last month that it started to seem like a third installment would actually happen. First a rumor surfaced claiming that the film might go into production in the fall in Vancouver, then a Production Weekly tweet specified an early October start and then after that we found out that Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde were expected to reprise their roles. All good news, but none of it has been confirmed by Disney or any of the folks involved, until now.

Vin Diesel is no doubt on cloud nine right now. Having only been released for less than a week, Diesel’s Fast & Furious 7 has already grossed over $400 million worldwide, paving the way for more high-speed car high-jinks in the coming years. But for now, the actor is stepping out of the driver’s seat and into something a little more mellow.
Deadline is reporting that Vin Diesel and comedy-actor Chris Tucker (Silver Linings Playbook) are set to join the already stellar cast for director Ang Lee’s (Life of Pi) newest project, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.
The film tells the story of 19-year-old soldier Billy Lynn and his squad, who survive an Iraq battle that is captured by embedded news cameras, causing them to become celebrated as heroes. They are brought home by the Us administration for a promotional tour that culminates at the halftime show of »

After several years of speculation and anticipation, it seems as though Tron 3 is finally moving forward. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Tron: Legacy actors Garrett Hedlund (Sam Flynn) and Olivia Wilde (Quorra), along with director Joseph Kosinski, have been reassembled by Disney to take audiences back to the Grid.
Mercifully, fans now won’t have to wait another 28 years for the franchise to continue (like last time), but years of fan dreaming and the series’ inherent limitless potential have ensured that the next chapter has no choice but to be bigger and bolder. The third film will undoubtedly continue to carry forward certain story threads left dangling by Legacy, such as Quorra’s existence outside the Grid, and retain a number of basic series staples, like disc wars and lightcycles, while offering audiences a fresh experience different from its predecessors.
Though it will have to keep moving the franchise in new directions, »

It's nearly five years since Tron: Legacy massaged our eyeballs, and Disney's still slowly putting together its sequel.
Legacy's director Joseph Kosinksi, who's since made the Tom Cruise sci-fi Oblivion, has been attached to Tron 3 for some time. Joining him, it's been revealed, will be Legacy's leads Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund.
That Wilde and Hedlund are coming back isn't too much of a surprise, given how pivotal they were to the previous film, but it's a sign, at least, that Tron 3's still definitely happening. In fact, The Hollywood Reporter says that Tron 3 is likely to start filming in Vancouver in the autumn.
