2010: Tron 2

Coolness. I haven't seen a quality trailer for it yet, just a bootleg from Comicon, but it looks good. Jeff Bridges stars.

From the looks of the trailer, as poor quality as it is (the one I saw, anyway) it appears they caught the original style quite well, almost a "retro-cyber", compaired to what they could have done. The graphix look better, but the designs are of the original flavor.

So many good movies, so long to wait!

Tron : Legacy is being released on December 17th.

The trailers look promising.

And the plot seems plausible and interesting. Even if it is "let's pair a young actor with the former movie's lead as his son" shtick.

[spoil]Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world's leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the abandoned Flynn's Arcade—that could have only come from his father—he finds himself pulled into a world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a visually-stunning digital universe—created by Kevin himself—which has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, and landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.[/spoil]

It's great to see Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner back as Kevin Flynn and Alan Bradley/TRON, but it's a shame they also didn't bring back Cindy Morgan as Lora Baines/Yori.
