tron light cycles Tron 2 Will Be 3D

After the news of Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett being cast in Tron 2, we get the exciting news that the film will be shot entirely in 3D! AICN reports:

…a previously tested source had to say:

I think the masses would love this tidbit of info. Tron 2.0 is going to be shot ENTIRELY in 3-D. They are really excited about what they are going to be doing with the Tron world in 3-D.

With new technology, they can actually wear the glasses at the monitors as they shoot & it will show them exactly how the 3-D will look so that they can get exactly what they are looking for.

If there has ever been a world that 3-D would totally embrace, I think it would be the world of Tron. Specifically, we are going to get a first person view from inside of a light cycle in the film. That should be a lot of fun.

I think this is fantastic news, I can’t think of a movie on the horizon that would benefit more from the 3D technology available. Just imagine one of those Light Cycle battles coming out at you from the big screen; the mind boggles at what they could potentially do with this thing. As I have said before I think this is a film that lends itself extremely well to a sequel but this news of the 3D factor has really piqued my interest.

What do you make of this news? Is 3D a good or bad idea for Tron 2, Tr2n, TRZ or whatever they’re calling it this week?

  1. I’m a fan of 3D, but not when they do the gimmicky “leap at the audience” junk. I like the enhance depth of field and putting the viewer in the movie aspect.

    This does seem to be a great fit… better at putting us inside the virtual world.


  2. I have to agree wholeheartedly on this. As long as it isn’t done in a gimmicky manner and done more along the lines of just trying to draw us into the world portrayed on screen I think it could be fun.

  3. I’m a big proponent of 3D technology, so this is obviously a good thing in my mind for movies in general.

    As for Tron 2, I remember that Tron 2.0 video game being a laugh riot, and some of the conceptual stuff they had shown for a Tron 2 in the past seemed a bit far-fetched for the casual movie goer.

  4. Ah yes, that’s akin to the “up-close and personal” fight scenes, or the shaky-cam gimmicks that annoy me so much with modern movies.

    I hear ya.

  5. That does worry me that they will think the 3D aspect is enough to pull the punters in and will not bother so much on story and the rest.

    A 3D movie which is a really good movie is what we want.

  6. This sucks as now I won’t see this.

    The war against 3-D rages on!!!

  7. Now the war against 3d has been lost. So sweet. 120 3d movies now coming out for 2010, 2011, and 2012.
