'Tron Legacy': The Comic-Con footage that made me a believer

Posted on

I’ll admit it right up front: When Tron 2.0 was first announced a couple years ago, I didn’t care that Disney was making a sequel to Tron. I’ve got fondish memories of the original Jeff Bridges-Bruce Boxleitner videogame-gladiators flick, but never once did I wonder to myself, “I wonder what Flynn and Tron are doing today.” And then I saw this footage of the newly moniker’d Tron Legacy at the San Diego Comic-Con:

Smooth, fast, wicked. I know this is just test footage that was shot more than a year ago, but seeing it in 3D — as it was projected at SDCC — I’m officially a convert.

What do you think? Is this a Tron you can get behind, or will all the svelte CG in the world not get you off the couch?
