Tron Legacy Tron Legacy Music Video with Daft Punk Score Derezzed

It’s Tron Tuesday and that means Walt Disney Pictures has released new material promoting their upcoming tentpole pic, Tron Legacy. This week, it comes in the form of a snazzy music video/trailer.

Electronic musical duo Daft Punk’s original score for the Tron sequel enhances the exciting mood of this action-packed preview, which includes brief snippets of not-yet-seen film footage.

Props to Disney far excellent job of adding fuel to the fan-anticipation fire for Tron Legacy. The throwback Tron Legacy poster is both stylish and pays homage to the one-sheet for the original Tron, which has a solid cult following of its own. Marvel’s Tron-inspired makeover of its cherished superheroes is both creative and cool looking – and Disney still has its Tron Legacy preview screenings to help spread the word about the big-budget, 3D cyber world adventure.

The new Tron Legacy music vid – which is set to a sample of Daft Punk’s “Derezzed” theme from the film’s soundtrack – contains several familiar bits of lightcycle races and cyberdisc duels that appeared in previous Tron Legacy trailers. It also features new footage of Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) just after he arrives in Tron and offers a look at Michael Sheen (doing his best David Bowie impersonation) as Castor – along with Daft Punk’s cameo in the movie.

Check out the Tron Legacy “Derezzed” preview below:

Daft Punk’s techno score for Tron Legacy is pretty catchy and seems to fit the look and pace of the film like a glove so far. The visual FX look by and large very impressive and the Tron landscape should be pretty awesome on the big screen – especially in 3D IMAX.

Clu 2.0 (a.k.a. young CGI Jeff Bridges) doesn’t look as good (i.e. fake), but we get the feeling that, like the Na’vi from Avatar, as a digital creation he’ll benefit from being seen on, well, a screen that’s larger than a computer laptop.

No one is expecting Tron Legacy to do Avatar-sized business at the box office, but Disney is clearly banking on the film being a hit when it arrives this upcoming holiday season. Moviegoers’ interest in 3D has waned a bit, especially now that there have been a handful of films released that were given the subpar post-production conversion treatment, but the new Tron adventure was designed for, and clearly will look stellar in, the third dimension. It should be one cinematic venture that’s actually worth the more expensive price of a ticket.

Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy soundtrack will be released on December 7th, 2010. Tron Legacy arrives in theaters a week later and will be shown in the 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D format.

  1. absolutely love Daft Punk. hmm..was that Michael Sheen i saw in this trailer??

    • Yes that i Michael Sheen.

      This movie is going to be win all over.
      Daft Punk playing MP3 Programs = win.
      The plot seems simple but the visuals and daft punk’s eargasms will make the admission ticket worth it.

      Oh yeah, Olivia Wilde too.

      • i’ll bee seeing it. just not too high on all the slow-mo crap i saw. the cgi Bridges didnt look too good either.

  2. New Tron movie. Daft Punk for Tron’s soundtrack. Daft Punk in Tron.

    Somebody pinch me.

  3. Tron + Daft Punk = marriage made in heaven.
    Can’t think of any two things that go together better than these two.

    Hands down the most anticipated movie of the year.

  4. Yeah I can watch this trailer over and over again.

  5. This soundtrack alone will haunt my memories even more than Inception’s. Is it clear whether Daft Punk being featured in the world of Tron is just for the music video, or actually in the movie?

    • They have a cameo in the film during the End of Line club scene. That is an actual clip from the film.

  6. It matches the images and I can imagine this working really well on a big screen where you can physically FEEL some form of bass, but it doesn’t do a lot for me as a stand-alone track – the drum sound is lightweight and “snappy”. I’m not just being negative for the sake of it, as it’s unusual to hear this kind of soundtrack on a film at all, and I’m looking forward to seeing what it gives the movie as a whole.

  7. Just ordered the Tron Legacy soundtrack from Amazon.com.

  8. Has………just………made……….my……..year.

  9. Since Daft Punk was pretty much inspired by Tron this is fitting. And they totally have an absolutely perfect sound for this film.

    Sounds similar to that old anime Armitage III imo but I really like it. But like everyone else here, I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS:)
