I suppose I should clarify — I’m still highly skeptical of the Tron sequel. I have a bit of a soft spot for the first one… it’s a one of a kind movie, a perfect example of time and place. The acting is decent, the story is pretty intriguing and the effects are wholly unique — both then and now. The director, Joseph Kosinski, has exactly zero films under his belt — though he certainly has the right kind of visual flair, as evidenced by some of the commercial work he’s done.

This is outstanding news, and I confess I’ll see it just to hear their music and see how it’s incorporated. In many ways, a movie like this is the perfect vehicle for them, since as we mentioned earlier in the week, most of their videos are animated anyway. Speaking of which:
