Yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con Disney showed 8 minutes of footage from Tron: Legacy the sequel to the 1982 classic sci-fi adventure Tron. For those of us not lucky enough to have been their they have appeased our hunger for more information by releasing a new two and a half minute trailer.
The new trailer is heavy on sequences and dialogue that we have not encountered before and really does up the ante on expectations for the film. I mean it just looks great.
The official synopsis for Tron: Legacy is as follows:
Inside the ENCOM computer system, a program called CLU, created by Kevin Flynn during the original fight against the Master Control Program, has been causing chaos and destruction across the grid. Sean Flynn, son of former ENCOM CEO Kevin Flynn, is in search of his missing father, but Sean discovers that his father’s whereabouts are somehow connected to the program making a mess of the ENCOM system. In order to find his father, Sean has to go into the ENCOM system, and fight his way to CLU, but in the neon world of TRON, a lot has changed and new dangers await him at every turn.
Tron Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world thats unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his fathers disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevins loyal confidant (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
