    That sure was. And that was also Michael Sheen rocking out in that David Bowie getup.

    Between this and the "proof of concept" Comic Con trailer, Tron: Legacy is really shaping up to be something spectacular!

    Never saw the first one but the trailer for this looks really good. I assume you guys would recommend watching the first Tron before watching this one? Is it worth a blind buy?

    I would recommend watching the original in any case.

    You can get it for about $10 so I would say it's worth a blind buy.

    Disney has now signalled they are all aboard for a sequel to Tron Legacy, which won't be released until December, and have brought in script writers. They must have some high hopes here.

    Love the music in the trailer. Daft Punk was a great choice

    I haven't been following this much, but I'm a big fan of the original. The trailer visuals were fantastic. I just hope the story is decent.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see Bruce Boxleitner was involved.

    Agreed - the trailer looks beyond impressive, and looks like its shaping up to be something pretty spectacular. Love the visuals (love those Light Cycles), love Daft Punk and love the fact that they brought back Bruce and Jeff Bridges. The story seems pretty intriguing - like that they're picking up with Flynn's son in search of him. Looking forward to seeing/hearing more about this now!

    Sorry for the bump, just wanted to share some ComiCon - or rather, ComicTRON news with you guys. Disney will have a Tron panel at the event (I guess maybe not too surprising since they've been there the last two years). I am envious of anyone that gets to go and see new footage!

    Excellent press conference today. HTF was there in the front row. Will post some incredible pics of the cast shortly (Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxlietner, Olivia Wilde, Michael Sheen, and the director of Legacy and the original, and more)...

    "Young" Jeff Bridges looks amazing. CGI or really good makeup?


    The Black Hole lunchbox in the kid's room is a nice touch. Or else it's savvy marketing with that remake in the works.

    Very obvious CGI, but a good attempt. The work is probably unfinished as well. It looks like they're putting the head on a real body, and don't have the tracking quite right. They could have that fixed by release. The facial movements though have a long ways to go.

    Zack, if you can deduce all of that from a low resolution video, you have better eyes than me! I hope this trailer will be in theaters soon.
