LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

Olivia Wilde Returns for #Tron3

She re-joins Garrett Hedlund, but no word on Jeff Bridges. Story by Matt Cummings When Tron: Legacy debuted in 2010, it didn't exactly win everyone over, at least not right away. Chided by critics as missing the spirit of the 1982 trippy computer-generated cult classic, it's gone on to become a rather beloved forerunner to more recent films. From the beautiful imagery by Director Joseph Kosinkski to the huge orchestral score by Daft Punk, Tron: Legacy has stuck around in moviegoer's minds far longer than more recent, established franchises ( Amazing Spider-man , Transformers ). And while a follow-up was only recently guaranteed, it appears that another critical component has re-joined for another adventure. According to The Hollywood Reporter , Actress Olivia Wilde is set to return, along with Garrett Hedlund in the follow-up currently titled Tron 3 . Wilde, who played the computer-generated-butt-kicking Quorra, escaped with Sam Flynn (Hedlund) to the re

Bruce Boxleitner Talks Tron 3

MTV spoke with  Bruce Boxleitner and the question on everyone’s mind: will there be a third “Tron” film? “I think 'Tron: Legacy' left it open-ended,” Boxleitner said in an interview with MTV News. “You see two beautiful people riding off into the sunrise, and Quora seeing sunrise for the first time. That leaves it open to imagination and speculation." Boxleitner has played two characters in the “Tron” series, Alan Bradley and Tron… three if you count the brainwashed Rinzler from “Tron: Legacy” who is revealed to be Tron himself. Although he left it to someone else to suit up for the physical acrobatics shown on screen, it’s Boxleitner who voiced the character "We also saw Cillian Murphy and the boardroom at ENCOM when Sam pulled the stunt in the beginning," he continued. "All these things have been left hanging out there.” “ Rinzler is the attack dog for Clu – and through the movie the character made a journey back to redemption,” the actor points o

TRON 3 Could Be On It's Way Sooner Then Later

Aint it Cool News has confirmed a recent rumour from What’s Playing that a second “Tron” sequel is on it’s way to being greenlit. According to Harry Knowles, “ TRON Legacy ”, released in December to mixed reviews, is “set to cross $300 million worldwide” and “has proved, beyond a doubt that there is an audience that buys this science fiction fantasy.” But it’s not just the film that’s helped the brand biggen – the merchandise (those light cycles; action figures, and so on) and CD soundtrack (by Daft Punk) have also helped Tron’s case. “Disney is beginning to realize, TRON could be a franchise”, wrote Knowles. In December, What’s Playing’s Hollywood Insider column reported that the “creatives and execs involved in the latest film are pushing on under the assumption that the film will make a profit, and for that reason, they’re already brainstorming over the next sequel.” One of the ideas being tossed around for the next sequel includes incorporating the character of Yori, pla

Tron: Legacy Passes100 Million Mark

25% Comes From Imax Theaters Tron: Legacy crossed the $100 million mark at the domestic box office on Tuesday. The movie, budgeted at $170 million, which has been in U.S. theaters for 12 days, has also made around $75 million overseas. The most interesting note about the domestic number is that almost a quarter of the box office receipts -- about $25 million -- are from IMAX theaters . Tron is playing in 3,451 theaters across Canada and the U.S., with only 235 of those being IMAX houses. For that low count to generate 25% of the gross is astonishing. And a record proportion for IMAX. Read more after the Jump.. But while that is good news for IMAX, it’s not necessarily good news for Disney. IMAX filmgoers tend to be in the 15 to 34-year-old demo and are -- how shall I put it? -- geekier than the average person. So the numbers reveal that while the tentpole is performing solidly in its core demo, it’s ability to break out into a broader audience might remain a bit elusive, despit

Tron: Legacy Review By SandwichJohn

Tron: Legacy Movie Review By: SandwichJohn Alright let's start this again. Two hours of writing my review have been lost, but I have to get this done so let's start all over again. This is my life. The original Tron came out back in 1982 and I don't remember going to see it in theater but I do remember wearing out our Beta machine watching the movie over and over again. Going in the back yard while living in Sagamihara,Japan and playing disc wars with a Frisbee, throwing them at my buddies and pretending we were in the arena. This has to be one of the most anticipated films for me in my life time other then the release of Star Wars Episode 1 . I have been hoping and wishing that they would make a sequel for more than 20 years. I attended my first Comic-Con back in 2008 and there was buzz that there was going to be a tron panel during the Disney presentation. We got a teaser trailer TR2N . It depicted a yellow Program engaged in a light cycle battle with a blue Pr

I started working on this shorty after The Apple Tree was released. The title and intro are indeed a tipping hat to Daft Punk’s Video “Derezzed”. They came out with their video right around the time I was finishing mine up, and I still hadnt thought of a title. So I thought it would be fun to keep the name scheme similar as well as the feel of the setup. No ha

Tron: Legacy The Costumes & Merchandise

Tron: Legacy The Costumes & High End Merchandise This article will appear in the first issue of the re-launched Hollywood Reporter , which appears on newsstands Wednesday. Subscribers can read the full version here. In 1982, Tron not only became one of the first movies to make extensive use of computer graphics, but the high-concept film also put those special effects front and center on the film’s costumes. The Dec. 17 release of Tron: Legacy — starring Olivia Wilde, Garrett Hedlund and the return on Jeff Bridges as computer genius Kevin Flynn, who has mysteriously disappeared through a portal into another world — is hoping to accomplish the same thing. But being slavish to the original wasn’t something costume designer Michael Wilkinson and co-costume designer Christine Bieselin Clark (who also worked together on 300 and Watchmen) thought made sense when starting this project more than two years ago. “Tron was this cutting-edge film, and we wanted to be reverent to what
