On December 17, Walt Disney Pictures will release what could be one of the year’s biggest films: director Joseph Kosinski’s Tron: Legacy.
It’s a sequel that comes nearly thirty years after the original film, Tron, debuted in 1982, and the sequel promises to bring new and old fans alike to theatres to see stars Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner reprising their roles as a new era dawns in the digital world.
Synopsis: Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Oscar- and Golden Globe-winner Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn’s Arcade–a signal that could only come from his father–he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe–a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape.
Tron: Legacy debuts in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D. For more on the film visit the official site at disney.go.com/tron/. Stay tuned to The GATE for lots more on Tron: Legacy, including a huge contest coming next week.
