    Wasn't Tron a bomb? If so, I'm surprised they're throwing more money into the project.

    Well, it made $33m in the USA alone, at 1983 prices...and it had two Oscar nominations (costume and sound) and a Bafta nomination (special visual effects) and won the Saturn for costumes, so it didn't exactly bomb...but it could have done a lot better.

    Presumably they're hoping that the remake, with the latest CGI, will take more at the box office...

    My memory was the film was very well recieved. Spawned an arcade video game and everything. I will admit it looks almost quaint today, and it amussing that no effort was made to cover up genitalia in those extremely tight outfits lol

    I concur, with up-to-date effects and a well-written plot, it will do really well. There are so many people who remember the first one who will go just to see what its like, as well as the legions of unwashed masses who are attracted to shiny special effects and groin-grabbing outfits :p

    Why can't Hollywood leave well enough alone. You know this is going to be too cheesy to take.

    Seems Jeff Bridges is back - somehow maybe too optimistics to expect to see Bruce Boxleitner and Peter Jurasik also return. :)

    Re: Tron 2.0

    So, not a re-imagination or updating, but an out and out sequel?? :confused:

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this was about a young teenager going to a video game arcade. So, now will it will be about a 50 year old, near to retirement, who spends 24 hours a day playing World of Warcraft? :rolleyes:

    I don't know man. All I remember are the light-cycles. Just give me 90 minutes of light-cycles and I'll be okay.

    Seriously...all I remember are the light-cycles. And the coin-op video-game. Played it to death (mostly for the light cycles).

    Light Cycles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3ODe9mqoDE
    TR2N Trailer (surprise! Light Cycles!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPGWYAUF3v4&feature=related

    (shouldn't I be able to embed these YouTube videos? Maybe that's another forum...)

    Here's a better version of the trailer in HD, if anyone's interested: Tron Legacy Comic Con Trailer - Trailer Addict

    I quite like the direction this Tron is taking. I particularly like the sets - the smoked glass effect is fantastic!
