New Tron Trailer Enters the Game Grid

A new trailer for Tron: Legacy has been released, offering a glimpse at the wondrous bounty the movie has to offer.

The original Tron movie was ahead of its time, and had ideas that the technology of the early 80s couldn’t quite realize. More than 25 years later, its sequel, Tron: Legacy, doesn’t have that problem, and the latest trailer shows off just how amazing that world can look.

The new trailer starts with Flynn telling his son Sam a bedtime story, a story that sounds awfully like the events of the first movie, just days before his disappearance in 1989. From there we get to see Sam’s confusion as he arrives in the sprawling metropolis the digital world has become, as well as a taste of the movie’s action sequences.

The movie has a really striking aesthetic and it’s encouraging that Disney seems to be taking it so seriously. There’s a lot of elements that long time Tron fans will find very familiar indeed, but there’s a lot in there that’s new as well. I especially like the upside down, hand-to-hand disc combat.

Tron: Legacy stars Jeff Bridges, Garret Hedlund and Olivia Wilde and opens in theatres in December.
