    Sweet.

    I like the original design better.

    But this doesn't suck.

    Bastard.

    Thought I might have a first on something decent. Here's hoping for A V A T A R.

    Grr.

    Looks like a mid-90s Subaru logo.

    by Emmett_FitzHume

    Am I right or what?

  • July 23, 2009, 4:11 p.m. CST

    Thanks for the new wallpaper!

    by decypher44

    Though the "Legacy" font reminds me of Melrose Place (Orig series).

    That's Tronarific...

    But is Syd Mead comming back as concept designer? If so, they got me.

    I'm Still Look Forward To This

    The lame title will not dispirit me.

  • July 23, 2009, 4:14 p.m. CST

    Interesting...

    by Ronimus Prime

    In Tron 2.0, one MacGuffin was the Tron LEGACY code... Could this mean, perhaps, 2.0 is indeed canon with the new movie?

  • July 23, 2009, 4:16 p.m. CST

    Why dont they release last year's footage?

    by TheWrathOfSean

    They should put it on iTunes, like what was done for Watchmen.

  • July 23, 2009, 4:16 p.m. CST

    Continuation NOT reimagining.

    by JudasPriestly

    I can't for the life of me understand why these Abrams' writers think they have to completely retool something that is already established. This movie better not be about that script that was released about a month ago or I think I will go completely apeshit! Why go through all the trouble of getting Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner to reprise their roles if this gonna be a rehash? I'm just saying...they better not screw this up!

    All of you haters will be eating your hats when you finally see it. My guess is that it's going to knock everybody's socks off!

    I dig what the background implies....

    and the first look it gives at the new game grid and the evolved world of tron... this looks siiiick

  • July 23, 2009, 4:20 p.m. CST

    ominus they said the samething about the original TRON

    by Orionsangels

    Critics destroyed it. Yet it's Legacy lives on. Like how I did that. Adding the Legacy there. I mean it became a cult classic. Scarface was the same, hated by critics in 83 and not a big box office hit. Yet today its considered one of Al Pacino's best movies. So even if TRON Legacy is bad. They'll always be someone who likes it.

    by lockesbrokenleg

    I am holding judgment.

  • July 23, 2009, 4:25 p.m. CST

    Great title!

    by AlibyebyeEssmob

    It indicates it is a sequel in a way more elegant than 2 or 2.0, and, as has been pointed out above me, it references legacy code (the legacy code of TRON as a program), and the legacy of TRON as a film. Brilliant.

    Also, beautiful title card.

    by AlibyebyeEssmob

    Looks fucking epic.

  • July 23, 2009, 4:35 p.m. CST

    Have the "I'm a Mac" and the "I'm a PC" guys . . .

    by WX1

    <p>. . . receive a nice Anne Rocquelaure treatment on each of the North-pointing edges of the "N" in the logo. Then, have one of the Tron tanks break through the logo and run over the two. That would get people's mind off the recession at least, have a fine laugh [!]</p>

    Good Title, Love the Look. Tron 2.0 Was Already Used

    by GordoSan#1

    Tron 2.0 was a video game sequel. It would be foolish to take that name. This movie is supposed to be a father and son movie, so Tron Legacy works just fine.

  • July 23, 2009, 4:42 p.m. CST

    Daft Punk is gay

    by StarchildAD

    Fuck that band and that music.

  • July 23, 2009, 4:42 p.m. CST

    I also prefer the TR2N design.

    by Royston Lodge

    It was different. The "add some word after the title" method for sequels is getting old.<p>But whatever.

    You're dumb as shit. You can't even spell Ominous right. That's a pretty incredible skill you have - you can tell how good a movie's gonna be based on the logo design. You should probably be employed by all the studios, that could come in handy.

    probably really raping someone right now.

  • July 23, 2009, 4:57 p.m. CST

    Remember my exact words...

    by Fah-Cue

    When this film comes out, it will be a HUGE flop. The vast majority of moviegoers don't care about "Tron". It's as memorable as "Scanners". I'm a geek... and it's on the bottom-end of nostalgia for me. Mark my words -- it will flop BIG TIME.

    It will probably look like shit considering they are screening it in 3D. I really really want to see it badly though, but if it's just some blurry lines then fuck that. They have to release a trailer for this in the summer though. It's ridiculous how silent they've been about the film. I'm saying expect trailer in front of GI Joe. Since it's the last big film of the summer.

That always makes me a little nervous... Early prediction: the thing that could sink this flick would be a pretentious, too-serious tone' This comment comes from a guy who's just seen 25 mins of it. It's not a particularly negative comment - but it's not exactly euphoric either. If this film was AWESOME then you'd think there would be hyperbole and euphoria in abundance, not downbeat realism.

Yes, the CG's gonna look a little more realistic than the films of last year - but only a 'little'. Don't expect miracles. The Navi will look like the Gungans version 2.0 - you will know they are CG, of that I am sure.

    More Amazing News

    by ThusSpakeSpymunk

    The studio knows what a disaster they've got on their hands with AVATAR, to the point where they're GIVING AWAY 15 MINUTES OF THE MOVIE FOR FREE AT IMAX THEATERS to try -anything- to get people to go see this movie, to talk about it outside the geek circle (there is ZERO buzz about this movie beyond the geek cadre), ANYTHING. They know this is WATCHMEN all over again and that the interest level of the general population is going to be ZERO for the EcoThundercat NonAction Flick.

    "flopp cause no one cares about 1st one"

    by Carl XVI Gustaf

    Love the guys who comes up with that stuff. Same bullshit we get about Tintin: "not known enough in US of A, will flopp" or the Thor movie. It's that thinking that usually comes from money-hungry coke-snorting producers when they hack together a sequel/prequel or worse, a remake-redux-reimaginagion. With that kinda thinking we can never get an original idea movie, cause "no one knew about it before, so it will flopp".

    by godhelpus

    I don't like the look. Too much detail and dimension in the blacks, I like the flatter quality of the original. There's nothing special about this, rather looks like a glowing Terminator 3-esque nightmare. The original had a unique and timeless look, almost mystical. I wish it was better. They can;t get the ligthcycles right. They look too real, too dimensional. What made them cool originally is that they look digital not real.

    So now everything is rendered photorealistically, but has neon tubes stapled to it? Perhaps I'm being naive, but I thought part of the Tron aesthetic was that it was *supposed* to look the way it did. I didn't think "the world inside the computer" was lacking gritty sidewalks and burnished metal because of a problem with EnCom's render farm. Ranting aside, I really want to love this.

    by conspiracy

    That's right..Tron and the Dude are going to make Avatar thier fucking cum slut bitch. After all the fan hype, and Cameron hizz bad self, and his Hollywood pals, fluffing everyone's nuts about Avatar, we find out is it basically as revolutionary as a cut scene in a HALO game.</p><p>Tron WAS revolutionary...if somewhat overlooked...and although I was not looking forward to this...I gotta say I'm growing more interested in this new TRON with every new detail released, while the more I hear about AVATAR the less curious I am.

  • July 24, 2009, 1:37 a.m. CST

    So basically they've screwed the pooch on the hype factor so bad

    by JackLucas

    That they have to resort to renting out theatres to show fifteen minutes in order to get people excited? I know us geeks are all feeling the thing was going to fuck our eyeballs and all of that, but to the general moviegoer... they have NO IDEA what the fuck Avatar is. I asked five people today randomly just to see if the hype that is being felt by fanboys was real and no one that I asked knew a thing about it. Two of them thought I was talking about the Last Airtwister flick.

    by JIMBOCOP

    Someone had to say it. My only worry wity the new Tron (NEWTRON <- THERE'S a puntastic title, see?) is that it's all very black looking. 21st century SF/fantasy seems to be all about bleeding the colour out of things to make it "dark and moody" or something, like what they did to the XMEN costumes. TRON was the ultimate exercise of RED Vs BLUE and, although I'm jizzing my jodphurs just looking at the logo (and I like the name), I do worry this may end up looking like the Matrix. That is all...

    Sometimes i have more trust on first time filmmakers then established hacks. The first time filmmakers want to show what they are made of, and they put their fire in their hearts into the movie. Hacks ALWAYS slouch, specially if they have a fat budget (cough*Terminator4*cough/cough*StarTrek*cough).
