TRON comes full circle with TRON Legacy

Updated on July 16, 2011

The Original TRON

If you reading this on the net then your already inclined to be more computer savvy and thus interested in computers and there artificial intelligence capabilities. The movie Tron, released in 1982 (the greatest year to be born in) and was a quite a hit. Tron premiered on July 9, in roughly 1100 theaters and grossed $4.8 million on its premier weekend. Later it went on to gross $33 million, reasonably successful considering it cost $17 million to make the movie.

TRON 1982 Trailer

Tron is an action/science fiction film that was produced by Walt Disney Pictures. It starred Jeff Bridges as the likeable hacker Kevin Flynn, Bruce Boxleitner as Alan Bradley. David Warner plays all three of the main adversaries: the program Sark, his "user", Ed Dillinger, and the voice of the Master Control Program or MCP. the 1982 classic that follows hacker Kevin Flynn’s journey into the virtual world of the ENCOM mainframe





The New TRON: Legacy

TRON: Legacy is the highly-anticipated sequel to the above mentioned Tron, Jeff Bridges will be reviving his role as Kevin Flynn in the sequel, which is currently scheduled to be released on December 17 later this year.

I think any Tron fan new or old are very excited for the new release. Not only does it show off cutting edge special effects that are the core of the Tron World but it appears to advance the storyline and the relationships between Bridges’ character and his “follow in dad’s footsteps” son Sam Flynn who is played by Garrett Hedlund.

The movie has already won the hearts of children from the eighties, and it compliments that the technology and computer geeks alike. After seeing this recent Tron legacy trailer, I have a great deal of patience to practice.

      Tron was great and I like the direction they are going with the new one. It is good to see the original star return in what promises to be a sci-fi hit.

      I am a big SciFi fan. I missed the movie Tron (probably busy with babies. I will be adding Tron to my Netflix queue and the sequel to my list of movies to watch for.

      Hi, McConnells,

      Not being a sci-fi fan, I wouldn't have had any interest whatsoever in Tron if it weren't for your hub and the trailer you posted, but I watched it and it's awesome! You've opened my mind. Thanks,
