Back in July, the teaser trailer for Tron: Legacy premiered, and I have to admit -- it was pretty damn cool. The original 1982 release of Tron was steeped in cheese, but it was also an impressive as hell flick, a techno-jargon heavy, pseudo-science-y action/think piece about the blurred lines between man and machine. The effects were downright groundbreaking, and actually hold up relatively well today. One couldn't help but wonder what they could do in the Tron universe using modern special effects.

Now we know.

The trailer still gives away little about the plot, other than to tell us that Flynn (Jeff Bridges) lives, is back inside the digital universe and has been for years, and appears to be some sort of leader/messiah/renegade. It involves his son (played by Garrett Hedlund), as well as Olivia Wilde, Beau Garrett, John Hurt, Michael Sheen and, niftily enough, Bruce Boxleitner returning as Alan Bradley and possibly Tron himself. It's directed by first-timer Joseph Kosinski and I have to admit... it looks pretty badass. I'm not usually one for resurrecting old films for sequels, but they seem to have gotten the look and feel just right. Plus, Daft Punk is doing the music, and that's just a match made in heaven. It'll be released in 3-D, and you know what? It should be. I'm totally fine with that.

Tron: Legacy will be released in theaters on December 17th, 2010.


End of line.
