03.06.2010 - Tron: Legacy is going to be bigger and has been a much awaited film since the original came in the 80s. This sci-fi cult phenomenon is going to make you want to see more than just a teaser trailer.

The newest trailer of Disney’s eagerly awaited “Tron: Legacy” makes its Philippine theatrical premiere as an added attraction to “Alice in Wonderland” which is now showing across the country in regular format, Digital 3D and Digital IMAX...

“Tron: Legacy” is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. In the film, Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the digital world of Tron where his father has been living for 25 years.

Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant Qora (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey of escape across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

Here’s a blow-by-blow description of the trailer:

Opening with a surprisingly effective 3-D version of the green MPAA rating, the teaser follows with Disney's 3-D Magic Castle logo which fades into a computerized counterpart.

We hear voiceover from Bruce Boxleitner as Alan Bradley, explaining to Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) that, last night, he traced a call from Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) back to Flynn's Arcade, closed for 20 years and Flynn missing as long. Sam is suspicious, telling Alan that it's not as though he's going to find his dad sitting there working.

We see the arcade as Sam enters, making his way to the TRON machine against the back wall. A familiar sight to those who attended the arcade viral event at Comic-Con, Sam kneels down and notices that the console is on an axis and, spinning it open, reveals a hidden passage behind the arcade wall.

In a back room, we're shown an over-the-device shot of the digitizing laser pointed at Sam and suddenly we cut to the inside of the computer world and an extreme long shot of a Recognizer landing and exteriors of the computer city, far more detailed and "real world" than anything from the first film,; imagine Fritz Lang directing Blade Runner with an extra dose of colored neon.

There are a number of flashes of locations and people; Olivia Wilde's Quorra lying in a lounge chair, her battling with Sam using neon blue discs (very different looking than the discs in the original), a White-haired most-likely villain (who may very well have been Michael Sheen; Kosinksi said that he was in the trailer and that his character is barely recognizable) and a shot of young Jeff Bridges.

We hear a brief bit of dialogue between father and son as Sam asks, "Dad?" and Flynn responds,"Son?"

"Long time," says Sam.

"You have no idea," says Flynn.

The logo comes up and is followed by a quick shot of two battling light cycles.

Opening across the Philippines later this year, “Tron: Legacy” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International.
