Our man Macross is on holiday somewhere in the United States and is a big fan of Disney’s 1982 attempt at the sci-fi computer animation. I don’t want to put words in his mouth, but I’m think he would have jizzed in his pants upon seeing the official teaser trailer for Tron Legacy. It looks awesome to say the very least – check it out below.
You can watch the high definition trailer at program-glitch-esc.net.
Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidante (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
It’ll be the first feature film from director Joseph Kosinski and electro-pop duo Daft Punk will do the score. Tron Legacy will be shown in 3D starting on December 17th, 2010 in U.S. theatres. Word has it that it’ll reach South African shores on December 31st.
