July 23, 2010, 1:21 a.m. CST
She's my new fave now. Love the Alice Glass hairstyle, too. Wanna touch, wanna know!
July 23, 2010, 1:22 a.m. CST
It hangs over everything now.
July 23, 2010, 1:52 a.m. CST
Seeing their cameo will bring a tear to my eye.
July 23, 2010, 1:52 a.m. CST
I noticed it way back last year.
July 23, 2010, 2:19 a.m. CST
But I'll probably check this one out.
July 23, 2010, 2:27 a.m. CST
Because the movie must suck if the computer program in the computer world doesn't look completely human amirite?
July 23, 2010, 2:28 a.m. CST
I'll be there..and hopefully Tron Blu-Ray will be under my Christmas Tree.
July 23, 2010, 2:32 a.m. CST
To create sequels to the Big Lebowski until the end of time. And Tron sequels, of course.

Was more into Star Wars and Indy at the time. Tried giving Tron another go, and still couldn't get into it. Despite that, I'm looking forward to this new one.

Okay we all knew Edgar Wright and Scott Pilgrim would kill shit, but the Expendables panel had great chemistry and was super fun. The footage was awesome.
July 23, 2010, 2:57 a.m. CST
who had a minor role in the first movie, telling a very sweet tale about the first movies premiere. And how Steve Lisberger couldn't go in, and stayed in his car outside the venue for the duration of the movie. Knowing that little anecdote gives me a good appreciation of what a movie like this could mean to him.

I agree Glass, Glass, Glass!!!!! Coke did it why cant water? I'd say aluminium as well, but I hear lots of bad things about it. Bridges was cool to bitch about that! We need a glass alternative that can be recycled for water bottles.

had finished fucking up it's home drinking water supply. Suddenly the municipal water from your tap wasn't good enough.<br /><br />Check out the documentary Gasland, if you ever wanted to see an American home owner set his own water (from the tap) on fire. It's both freaky, and sad.

IMAX format. Definately taking mushrooms for this. Can't wait to see all the classic,antique arcade machines come to life. Still no word on if the machines themselves come to life or the characters from the marquee art. I'm definately torn between mushrooms and exstacy. Hopefully it'll be good enough for repeat viewings
July 23, 2010, 4:10 a.m. CST
was hearing the track from the trailer. sounds epic http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gV5jCnkkS9c and oh? the visuals? the younf Fylnn looks, ahem, well whadoisay? young? any day better than the cg de-aging in X3! and Kosinksi looks like he might become a micheal bay who can think and has good aesthetic sense :)
July 23, 2010, 4:52 a.m. CST

I wish I did love it as much as some of you guys do but I just don't get the appeal. <p> Not to be a total negative Nancy; I do think the Tron sequel trailers have looked pretty awesome so far.
July 23, 2010, 6:25 a.m. CST
The music on the new trailer had better not be Daft Punk; it's so generic and lifeless. Slightly dodgy cgi heads are one thing but making Daft Punk sound like a third rate Hans Zimmer knock off is unforgivable!
July 23, 2010, 6:34 a.m. CST
I noticed something else. The lower jaws deformation is off as well. There inner mouths flesh rests against the inner teeth and gums. The lower part of the jaw bone keeps it's form/shape when the jaw moves. The lower jaw bones shape is actually enhanced more as the jaw is lowered. Maybe a CT scan of Jeff Bridges lower jaw is in order. <P> You guys can use the same shape deformation trick that Weta used in Kong to force the eyelids to deform over the cornea of the eye. Instead you apply this deformation routine to the teeth gums and jaw, and the various muscles that should be represented in this area of the mouth and jaw. You still use the captured IR 3d data taken from Jeffs acting, but you give it a little push with this custom program. <P> His jowls and adams apple area should have more movement as well. The jowls area should drop a little when the mouth opens as well as being tugged up and down by the adams apple area when it moves to makes words. You might have to put Jeff back in the 3d IR helmet or chair or whatever system you used to capture this data and focus that camera on his ears and Adams apple area this time when he recites those lines. This is what I see that seems to be throwing the performance off. No true muscle and bone deformation play in and around the edges of the lower jaw, including the edges of the lower jaws bone shape enhancing deformations that would exact itself on the lower chins skin as the jaw opens wider. Little to no action in the adams apple area, low earlobes motion responses to the moving jaw, and the lip movement is not in full motion to the dialog, it seems slowed down. Not as bad as Dr Manhattan though- damn that was bad.... <P> Do the lips stick together sometimes? Like our real lips do? Does the IR camera capture the sticky lip phenom when that happens? Or would those represented control point be located way too deep inside the IR 3d captured mouth animation?

Cause I'm not hating. I want and wish nothing but sucess for this movie.

Interesting. I was actually kind of surprised how poor the mouth movement was, after seeing what Cameron did in Avatar. I think this Jeff Bridges head looks great. The textures, tones and all. But the mouth reminds me of that fake-ass "Forrest Gump" style CGI mouth. If they could just get some of Cameron's mouth-people in there, I think they'd have it.
July 23, 2010, 7:09 a.m. CST
news !!!! someone confirm this pleeseeeeee!!
July 23, 2010, 7:10 a.m. CST
Theres just a little bit of polsih left to bring it home. If you drew a straight horizontal line over the cheeks from the edges of the lips corners (think jokers smile) you'll notice that this area remains puffy and it doesnt cave in and out or move like it seems like it should. I think one of the issues is that Jeff's 3d IR capture is basically coming from a much older face that is not the same shape obviously. So the talents involved have to dial things in and out to make it work for that CGI younger face. I'm sure this team used lots of his older films with him in them study ref. I've seen the cameron Avatar helmets, they didnt cover the entire face, the ears were blocked by the helmet, They ignored the hairline. These areas still respond to the motions of the mouth. The temples flex and move alot when you talk. This IR camera 3d real time capture is still early technology. Everyones still figuring it out. Jeff role is new ground as well, and older face is being used to animate a younger face. There's going to be sync issues.

that mouth is really bad. Nothing, they can't sort out before the release date though. And what's this news about Norton still being in the Avengers? I hope so, I'd hate to see them re-cast The Hulk yet again.

i even recently rented Tron to see if my opinion might be different since i hadnt seen it since the late 80s or early 90s. but it turns out i still find it very boring and crap but the sequel actually looks pretty damn cool. might be the first time i buy a sequel without getting the original...assuming it doesnt also suck. lol

There is no predicate in this sentence: <p><p>Sean Bailey, Joe Kosinski, Steve Lisberger (“Smartest Hobbit in the shire” – Patton), Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde (“So many happy nerdboys out there right now”), Michael Sheen (“who flew in on a magic teacup”), Bruce Boxleitner, Jeff Bridges (“the man who really ties the film together”). <p><p>Also, is "deressed" an actual word? <p><p>I'm not trying to be the Grammar Nazi, but it would be nice to see this stuff go through some sort of spell check. <p><p>-Cheers

I don't have any problems with the "creepy dead-eyed Jeff Bridges version of CLU", as from what I can tell, it looks like CLU is the villain of the story...like Khan in Trek II, maybe he blames Flynn for abandoning him, just as his flesh-and-blood son does. That's the vibe I'm getting from the trailers. CLU is the bad guy, shares the same issues as Flynn's son, both are on a quest to find and reunite with Flynn.
July 23, 2010, 8:51 a.m. CST
people where bitching about the first film's effects too when it came out. As long as the story is solid I don't fucking care!

So fucking excited. Loved it as a kid, one of the first really mind-blowing film experiences I had. I think TRON sits that way for a lot of folk. I love its vision. The art direction holds up extremely well. I love that it's an artifact of a very different time, before the last twenty-seven years of unprecedented technological growth. I can't wait for this. December is forever away.

Did anyone ask why Wendy Carlos wasn't doing the music this time around? The Daft Punk stuff that I have heard for the movie seems OK, though I would have liked to hear how Wendy Carlos would have taken it beyond her brilliant work in the original film. Btw, the CGI Flynn head is not nearly as bad as some commenters here are making it out to to be.
July 23, 2010, 10:45 a.m. CST
But there had better be some Wendy Carlos music cues here and there. The CGI Flynn head is one of those effects I can live with, but I think 10 years from now will look a lot like the bad Yoda puppet they used in Phantom Menace.
July 23, 2010, 11:13 a.m. CST
<p>As a child of the 80s that saw TRON in the theater, and a young adult of the 90s that loved all things eletronica:</p> <p>I love Daft Punk, but all the bits I've heard from TRON: Legacy are pretty underwhelming. Meanwhile the Carlos score from TRON is full of memorable themes and colors that I remember to this day. Vintage quality.</p> <p>I love Daft Punk and would love for them to surprise me, but I think having them score this film is like putting a brilliant square peg in a round hole.</p>

"Love" may be too strong of a word, but you get the idea.

Just deal with the obvious. Sure they did a great job in Avatar, but those were humanoid aliens, not humans.
July 23, 2010, 1:15 p.m. CST
I totally dig that movie, but it was mostly fully animated. When the CG creatures interacted with live action, it was far from totally believable or seamless. There were a couple of short sequences that worked, but more that didn't. And that film took like 5 years to make.

It has happened in benjamin button. The prblem with Clu is an oversight that they can fix. Your talking shit. It's already happened, and I have no doubts they will fix Clu. I'm sure he doesnt talk that much in the film. they have lots of time to bring it home. Digital humans have happened and they have fooled. Your out of your element man.

I'm beyond ready for this. I also noticed how many times Bruce Boxleitner referred to himself as Tron, and not Alan Bradley. I also notice that Rinzler has the same "T" formation of dots on his chest that Tron did. There's a lot of badass stuff in here, so far. I just wish they'd have hired the Weta Digital guys to do some facial animation capture for Clu.
