New Tron: Legacy trailer has the most plot and action yet

11.09.2010

I'm getting a wee bit exhausted with the sheer volume of TRON promotional stuff I see (and post) on the internet practically every day, but I'll take a brand new full length trailer over a new character poster any day.

I'm not sure if this is the best trailer to date, but it certainly is the most informative and action oriented. It opens with the story of how poor Sam Flynn was orphaned by his disppearing dad, and ends with a sky battle of Tron planes. That's right, TRON PLANES. They are as awesome as you'd imagine.

We also get a little more info on the actual plot, how Flynn is fighting a battle against his own creation, a CGI-faced younger version of himself. It's the first character with a completely computer generated face in a live action movie. Can you tell? In the one second you see him yelling below, you can judge for yourself.

Check it out below or head over to Apple for HD.

I hate when trailers rip off other successful trailers. Like when we got all those trailers that ripped off the original Transformers trailer. Only here it is ripping off the Inception trailer.

Still looks awesome, although there's a little more story than I think I wanted to see in that trailer. As for the tidbit, I'm sure Inception will be there. I would even suspect Scott Pilgrim. Besides that, not sure.

Looks pretty amazing. But the Young Jeff does look a bit "Robert Zemeckis" at the beginning of the trailer.

This is fucking AWESOME. And that's the best I could describe it because they haven't invented a more awesomer phrase yet.

Really good trailer, better than the last one. Fucking Tron planes!

But you are crazy if you say Clu/young Jeff Bridges looks "terrible" - that is some damn impressive CG work if you ask me.

The other trailers didn't really impress me, but this one looks awesome! Sure, the CG Flynn doesn't look perfect, but the rest of the film looks amazing. I hope it lives up to the hype.

Doesn't deserve an Oscar...

...if that's how CG Flynn is going to look. It looks terrible and is only accentuated by the fact that the rest of the movie looks so pretty. I'm excited for this, but the CG Flynn takes points off for bad decision making...just too fake.

After the events of the first film. Kevin Flynn creates a best seller video game based on the events he experienced in the first film.

I actually think CLU looks pretty good. Better in this trailer than the last one, anyway. Wonder what TRON looks like now. It's pretty amazing how far they seem to have stretched the world of TRON from its origins.

The memories -- how time flies!!! I think Tron is one of those rare movies that really benefited from a long remake!!! Now, some do the Last Starfighter, with today's techs!!!

I just hope...

I just hope those "Young Flynn" effects were rushed for the trailer. It's looks reaaaalllly CG. I mean, unless that's what they were going for, but my guess is they just wanted a young Jeff Bridges. Why not just do the deaging thing they did on "Benjamin Button" or the last "X-Men"? It wasn't perfect, but it looks better than what they have here.

That said, the rest of the movie looks bitchin.

Do the Inception visual effects count? Because if they do then I see it and Tron battling it out for the Oscar
