fb share tweet share

TRONAt the end of Joseph Kosinski’s 2010 TRON: Legacy you walk away with the definite feeling that we’re in for more. Most people think of the movie as a total bomb, though it made decent money ($400 million globally, $172 million domestically, against a $170 million budget), so it was only a matter of time before we got more, and after years of rumblings, now this definitely appears to be happening.

A report from VanCity Buzz, a local, Vancouver, BC-based paper, TRON 3, or TRON: Legacy 2 if you want to think of it like that, is getting ready to shoot in Vancouver this fall. After this news started circulating, a number of other outlets jumped all over their sources, and what they’ve heard corroborates this. Cameras are slated to roll on October 5.

TRON Infographic Explores The Evolution Of The Iconic Lightcycles

Joseph Kosinski’s TRON: Legacy may not have excellent in the script department, but it was a visual stunner with a badass propulsive soundtrack by Daft Punk. For many of us who grew up loving the original TRON, it was, if nothing else, a nostalgic trip that showed off an upgraded game grid and snazzy new versions of iconic vehicles such as the speedy light cycles and the airborne “recognizers.” You can check out the history and evolution of TRON’s vehicles below, courtesy of an infographic put together by — strangely enough — carinsurance.org. I wonder how much it costs to get full coverage on a light cycle, given how flimsy those can be…

TRON: Legacy Concept Art Showcases Lightcycles And Neon Tanks

Tron6Whatever else you can say about Tron: Legacy, there’s no question that it was a spectacular audiovisual experience that deserved to be seen on the biggest damn screen possible. In fact, it might have worked just as well as a silent movie, accompanied only by Daft Punk’s propulsive soundtrack. Whatever your feelings about TRON: Legacy as a movie or a long-awaited sequel, it was just gorgeous as hell, so I imagine I won’t be the only one eager to take a few minutes to slobber all over this gorgeous concept art by artist Daniel Simon.

Lego Predator Won’t Let You Get To The Lego Choppa

PredatorIt’s kind of ridiculous how big a thing Lego has become over the past few years. Don’t get me wrong, I love those crazy blocky yellow bastards, and spent a good portion of my formative years snapping them into assorted pleasing configurations and leaving them around for my parents to step on while barefoot. But I’ll fully admit I couldn’t wrap my brain around the whole concept of making Lego video-game versions of things like Batman or Indiana Jones or Harry Potter. Then I actually played those games and was forced to concede that they’re pretty damn charming. The mega-hit Lego Movie showed us how much fun Lego-fied things can be when combined with a silly sense of humor and a dash of creativity, so I’ve given in, I’ve swapped sides: let’s Lego-fy the entire world! Especially if we can start by having somebody make a real Lego version of Dutch and the ugly dreadlocked MF’er up top.

Walter Cronkite Enters The Game Grid In 1982 Tron Behind-The-Scenes Video

fb share tweet share

If there was any question just how cutting-edge the effects for Disney’s TRON were in 1982, those questions should be put to rest with the short video above wherein the making of the Disney film is explored by Walter freaking Cronkite. He adds a certain gravitas to the subject of a dude getting zapped into a computer that it might not otherwise have. Can’t you just feel the 1980s leaking off that video? Brace yourselves: it was even “recorded and archived in Betamax® format.” Somebody tell Max Headroom to toss me a New Coke, would ya?

TronborghiniLet this be a lesson to all who would drive without proper documentation.

A $550,000 modified Lamborghini Aventador that looks like it belongs in the movie TRON was impounded by London police when the owner was unable to provide a license or proof of insurance. Police pulled the driver over in Knightsbridge just outside of Harrod’s because it was missing its front license plate. At least it wasn’t parked next to this skyscraper.
