Anticipation of the new Tron film is growing. The viral marketing for Legacy has been building over the past few months in a big way: http://www.flynnlives.com/ is one of the main viral sites. You can signup to help ‘track down all leads related to the mysterious disappearance of Kevin Flynn, digital pioneer and former CEO of ENCOM’. There’s some really retro files to discover including lots of ASCII art animations and other weird crypitc messages.
A follow up to the sci-fi film Tron seems like a very good idea. Almost 30 years have past but hopefully this classic film will be done justice. Both in terms of narrative and recreating the aesthetic of the original film that was streets ahead of it’s time in terms of special effects. It’s definetely a film I’m looking forward to this Christmas.
