As we draw inexorably closer to the end of the decade, it’s time to take stock of where we’ve been. And while a lot of sites and critics will offer a countdown list of the “best” of the year and best of the decade, it’s also important to remember those films who flew under the […]
Iron Man is getting a convention exclusive release from Hot Toys. Available this summer at CCG 2018 and their flagship store at Shanghai Disney, this version of Tony will feature a design straight out of Tron Legacy with all kinds of LED light-up effects in the armor in using reflective patterns. Plenty of swappable parts and […]
Tron and LEGO go together like peanut butter and chocolate (sorry, I hate jelly). So when the LEGO Ideas Tron: Legacy set was first shown, I got excited — but didn’t get my hopes up that it would actually come to fruition. I loved Tron: Legacy; I thought it succeeded on every level. Well, maybe not […]
Tron: Legacy lightcycles are on their way from LEGO and the LEGO Ideas group. As announced last year, the set met all requirements of the program, and will see release on March 31. We now have official box images, along with a look at the set itself. The cycles look amazing, and I love that […]
LEGO has approved the Tron Legacy Light Cycle set. The set reached the 10,000 supporters plateau required and was approved by the LEGO Ideas in an announcement video earlier in the day today. There were 11 projects that met the 10,000 supporters requirement. Personally, I wish that The Office had won, as that is my […]
TRON was the first modern machine we ever had in my house. I’ve been lucky enough to play a number of variations of the game, and I honestly think this is one of Stern’s finer machines. Created in 2011, there are 4 editions of the machine as well as a limited edition. Each edition comes […]
TRON was very much a movie before its time so it shouldn’t be that surprising that its sequel TRON: Legacy was also before its time. The sequel came out in 2010 a few years before the nostalgia boom that has currently taken over Hollywood. Perhaps if it had waited a year or two to come […]
Progress continues on what seems to be Disney's least successful big-budget franchise.
I'm 100% convinced than Tron 3 will be about virtual people in our real world.
Back to The Grid he goes.
What will be joining David Cronenberg‘s Cosmopolis in the competition for a Palm D’or at Cannes this year? The full list of eligible films has been revealed this morning. Here they are, in alphabetical order by… um… auteur. “Rust and Bone” – dir. Jacques Audiard “Moonrise Kingdom” – dir. Wes Anderson “Holy Motors” – dir. […]
As premiered during the first episode of Ultimate Spider-Man on Disney XD, here’s a new, supershort, teaser for Tron: Uprising. Tron is looking for the next Tron? Sounds a bit “I’m Spartacus and so is my wife.” In a good way. Fight the power, little computer people.
In The Host, human bodies are infiltrated by alien parasites. As a result, we all become squeaky clean and placid. It’s an invasion of The Body Snatchers idea. And as you can see in this first teaser, it all plays out in the eyes. That music has a bit of a Tron: Legacy thing going […]
Walter Salles has cracked out the pin-ups for his feature film adaptation of On The Road. There’s Garret Hedlund, Kristen Stewart and, in the Kerouac-alt role of Sal Paradise, Sam Riley. An awful lot of people have tried to make this film over the years. Salles’ film will not be able to avoid the most […]
I’ve probably been less sceptical about the chances of seeing a third Tron than a second Sin City, but consider me tickled that today brought omens of both of these sometime long-shots being real, in-development films that are coming our way. Here’s a very short video of Bruce Boxleitner, the man who was Tron, fielding fan questions about […]
In what would very easily pass as a hype-churning press release, especially as it was timed to the release of the DVD and Blu-ray, Deadline have revealed that Joseph Kosinski and TRON: Legacy screenwriters Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz really are woking on another TRON. I suppose the reasons why are fairly plain to see. Legacy […]
Ed Dillinger senior and junior are scheming. See some of what they’re up to in this video clip. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgZs4reDohk[/youtube] If there’s ever a Tron 3 (ie. if Tron Legacy sells more DVDs and Blu-rays than is frankly realistic) then its plot roots could likely be traced back through this easter egg, from the upcoming Legacy disc. […]
We were told that the new TRON: Legacy Blu-ray and DVD would include some kind teaser trailer for an upcoming third film. This, as it happens, was not strictly true but there is new content on the disc, in the form of an easter egg epilogue or two. Rocking up on YouTube today is some […]
Oh, rumours, how I love you. Most of the time you amount to nothing, but sometimes, you’re bang on, and you’re always fun while you last. The rumours surrounding the release of Tron, the original and best, on to Blu-ray have been particularly entertaining. Let’s compile them all into one handy, dubious narrative: Tron was […]
A new page at Amazon reveals the existence of a second Tron: Legacy soundtrack album of some kind. According to the listing, Tron: Legacy Reconfigured will feature “various” artists. This may just be placeholder info, though, and my hunch is that this will actually be a remix album of some kind, something that will see […]
