Final ‘Tron: Legacy’ One-Sheet Unveiled
Tron: Legacy hits theaters everywhere in Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D on December 17, 2010 and this afternoon they unveiled their final one-sheet.
The eagerly-anticipated film features Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Bruce Boxleitner, James Frain, Beau Garrett and Michael Sheen. Directed by Joseph Kosinski, from the screenplay by Eddy Kitsis & Adam Horowitz, the movie is the sequel to the Disney cult hit from the early 1980s and one of the first films to use computer-enhancements for the visual effects.
Here’s the official synopsis: Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-winner Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn’s Arcade—a signal that could only come from his father—he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe—a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape. Presented in Disney Digital 3D™ and scored by Grammy® Award-winning electronic music duo Daft Punk.
Producer Steven Lisberger co-wrote and directed the original Tron (1982).
Jeff Bridges, winner of both the Oscar® and Golden Globe® for his role in Crazy Heart, reprises the role of Kevin Flynn, which he originated in Tron (1982).
Bruce Boxleitner reprises the roles of Alan Bradley and Tron, which he originated in Tron (1982).
Tron: Legacy forges a new frontier in filmmaking with its avant-garde, cutting-edge technology—set to blow away today’s audiences. Among the film’s firsts: it is the first 3D movie to integrate a fully digital head and body based upon an existing actor, creating the younger version of Jeff Bridges’ character; it’s the first movie to make extensive use of self-illuminated costumes; it’s the first movie to create molded costumes using digital sculpture exclusively, creating molds directly from computer files using CNC (Computer Numerical Cutting) technology; it’s the first 3D movie shot with 35mm lenses and full-35mm chip cameras; and it’s the first movie to record uncompressed HD Video to Hard Drive.
The world of Tron: Legacy has an exciting, pulsing vibe that sets its lifestyle apart from any other on or off the planet. From electric light suits to state-of-the-art hair and makeup, elements of the trend-setting world of Tron: Legacy are showing up on fashion runways, and companies such as Hurley, adidas, Oakley and Burton are featuring Tron: Legacy-inspired lines targeted for the young male consumer in collaboration with Disney Consumer Products.
