Tron: Legacy Trailer - IGN Rewind Theater
Eric Moro: Hey guys! Eric and Chris Carle here and we’re providing a rewind theater trailer commentary for the new Tron Legacy teaser trailer.
Chris Carle: Yup, the original was made by Walt Disney and they returned to make the sequel here and I couldn’t be more excited.
Eric Moro: Yeah, I’m psyched. I was a huge fan of the original movie in ’82. So, this has been 28 years in the making for me.
Chris Carle: You’re starting to see all the throwbacks here, Bruce Boxleitner at the ENCOM building and then some foreshadowing here possibly going to be riding some other kind of psycho later.
Eric Moro: Possibly. Yeah, I’m going to go back real quick. Obviously, this is Flynn’s arcade, an exact replica of the original in the first film but check out that billboard above it.
Chris Carle: Yes, Space Paranoids is the game that Jeff Bridges character Flynn was working on in the first film.
Eric Moro: Yeah, ENCOM stole it from him, hence, the conflict that was setup there.
Chris Carle: And they did something interesting in San Diego Comic-Con with Flynn’s arcade.
Eric Moro: Yeah, they literally replicated this arcade in downtown San Diego right down to this Tron machine and the secret lab that’s hiding behind it.
Chris Carle: Yeah, so this Tron machine, there’s a version of this that came out after the original movie that come out in the real world and it looked like this. It didn’t have the ENCOM logo because it was released by Bally/Midway, probably old school video game fans will remember it but they’re using the same cabinet here and everything.
Eric Moro: Yeah and of course you already mentioned Bruce Boxleitner but he played Allen Bradley in the Human World of Tron and his computer self was the program Tron.
Chris Carle: Exactly. And we’re going to start getting some glimpses at other throwbacks in this scene, this computer.
Eric Moro: Yeah, this was the desk that actually belonged to Ed Dillinger, the evil CEO of ENCOM. He was also Sark in the computer world. I just remember the thing, it was really cool because the computer was built into it and it was all touch screen.
Chris Carle: Like an iPhone.
Eric Moro: Exactly.
Chris Carle: And here are the same rays, what transported them back in the original film to take some to the computer world.
Eric Moro: Right, so clearly Sam Flynn is sucked into the world.
Chris Carle: And you see here, we go back, that’s a throwback to. This is a recognizer and you can also see some digital weather in the clouds. You got a sense that this is a much bigger world inside the computer world this time around.
Eric Moro: Yeah. From what I understand, this world leaves on a different server than the world that lived in the first film, hence, things looking similar yet more evolved.
Chris Carle: Inside a city level. That’s Olivia Wilde who everybody knows.
Eric Moro: Yeah. She’s in-house right now, big hottie. Look at this guy.
Chris Carle: And that’s young Jeff Bridges who was put inside the computer world 20 years ago.
Eric Moro: But you know what? I don’t think that this is his user self. I think this is his computer program self who was CLU in the first movie. And I think he goes on to become the MCP, the Master Control Program in this film. That’s just my theory.
Chris Carle: And if you back up, this guy in white here, that’s Michael Sheen. He played Lucian in Underworld. He was also in Frost/Nixon. And you can see some of the elements of this world, this expanded world. You can see a mass of crowd on the background, so obviously a lot of people in the world. And then different vehicles than were used to seeing. This is more of a roadster feel in the light cycles we’ve come accustomed to.
Eric Moro: Yeah. The producers keep telling me lots of gladiatorial combats, so expect lots of disc throwing games and Light Cycle racing, etcetera.
Chris Carle: Which we’re excited about. And there obviously that’s Oscar winner Jeff Bridges waking up as Flynn. And then here, the credit sequence is happening the whole time but you really hear the music from Daft Punk who’s doing the score for the film. So, that’s exciting as well.
Eric Moro: And here’s the foreshadowing. Here’s the payoff, the Light Cycle race. That’s Sam Flynn.
