You'll want this TRON: LEGACY lightcycle image as your computer background...

Published at: May 4, 2010, 4:04 a.m. CST by quint

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. You'll want this. Click to make big so you can stare at it in all its glory:

The orange cyclist is either Clu, the mastermind baddie, or the attack dog of the flick named Rinzler. I can't really tell. I talk about a bit about both of these bad guys in my initial Tron set visit piece (which you can read here!) and from what I saw on that visit Rinzler looks to be the Darth Maul of this world, a badass that dual-wields discs. Is it time to watch TRON: LEGACY yet? No? It's at least soon, right? No? Grumble-grumble-grumble... -Quint quint@aintitcool.com Follow Me On Twitter

    by Box_Bruceleitner

    Look at all these articles being posted, nicely done! Pretty cool image, I dig it quite a bit but... I don't think it'll replace my Kelly Brook background.

    This is last months picture

    by VanGoghX

    Although it truly is badass. There's a newer picture that shows the 4-wheel light-runner vehicle that is pretty damn cool too.

    Oooo.... badly photoshopped sparks

    by Cash907

    yeah, that'll look tons better on desktop then say photos taken from the hubble, or cheesecake shots of Christina Ricci, ScarJo, or whatever Hollywood babe that's looking randy at the moment.

    Strong Year for Disney

    by grievenom

    Alice in Wonderland, that Miley Cyrus movie, Toy Story 3, and Tron2. They'll probably be the top earning Studio of 2010.

    I Can Barely Wait

    by MakNeil

    till Tron: Legacy comes out. That being said, when will Disney create a proper web site for it? No wallpaper, nothing visuallly interesting except for a trailer for the film and video game. They should check out Iron Man 2's web site if they are curious as to how it is done. As cool as Tron: Legacy is, it isn't going to sell itself.

    "make big"?

    by The StarWolf

    Why not "enlarge" which, counting the space, has the same number of characters as is far more pleasant to read that the awful "make big"? And, no, not going to use that as my background. It really isn't that sensational. And then there's the text ...

    TRON monorails at EPCOT center!

    by Keeper Of Chimps

    Yes. If you take the monorail from the transportation and ticket center to Epcot, you get to ride a TRON painted monorail. They are promoting the shit out of this movie!

    JayLeno: What's Gay Is The Fingerless Gloves

    by kevinwillis.net

    I mean, I'm gonna love this movie, no matter what. It's a Tron sequel. It could be Jeff Bridges sitting around looking at a computer going, "Yup." for two hours, and I'd love it.<br><br>That being said, bad ass, light-cycle racing computer programs wear fingerless gloves? WTF?

    Okay, young 'uns out there, does this look cool to you?

    by CreasyBear

    If the only audience is made of geeks who are old enough to have seen the first one in the theater, then this movie is in trouble.

    by awardgiver

    I don't think they are in trouble. young people have nostalgia for the 80s like they had in the 80s for the 60s. And Daft Punk is doing the soundtrack. old people don't really care for Daft Punk.

    Old billboard at Santa Monica & Westwood in L.A.

    by Benovite1

    A couple of months ago when they put up this particular billboard image it was it looks here, then suddenly "Flynn Lives" appeared in the corner as if vandals painted it on. I thought it was great, I love that I live down the street from the revolving Tron 2 billboards. Here's what the vandalized billboard looked like; http://img297.imageshack.us/img297/696/04012010007.jpg http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/7849/04052010065.jpg

    Kind of a dumb image; still want to see the film

    by kevred

    It's kind of a silly image. if you don't already know TRON, they don't even look like they're on cycles; it looks like they're sitting in some kind of boxes, or it's a futuristic bag race. Far from the most dynamic image they could have chosen.<p>But the film still looks great and I'm still very interested in it. Seeing the movie? You bet. Using this as wallpaper? Nope.<p>Give me a great image of the new-look Recognizer; now *that* I'll use as wallpaper.

    Late reply, but this is the wallpaper. I used a higher quality version from god-knows-where but this gives u the jist. Awesome art, it so hard to get the proportions and perspective right. Now should I read the Naruto manga or just skip it and watch the anime to start with? hmm http://tinyurl.com/382zr8e

    Dual dics

    Why would anyone use two? They were the "data" of each individual in the Tron world.
