SDCC10: Tron Legacy Trailer


I was 9 when the original Tron hit theaters, and I haven't seen it since. At the time the special effects were ground breaking, the story although cheesey was actually quite innovative and a bit ahead of it's time considering the technology at that time.
If you read a plot synopsis of 1982's Tron you can see strong similarities to movie's today like Gamer, The Matrix, Surogates, Avatar and others.
Basically Jeff Bridges is the first person to play an online game! He became an avatar of his RL persona!
I don't expect Tron Legacy to be as revolutionary as the original but the recently released trailer does look exciting.
