The first official trailer for Tron Legacy has finally been released online courtesy of program-glitch-esc.net, a part of the online marketing alternate reality game (ARG) that loyal Tron fans have been participating in for some time.

This same ARG is what led to the premiere of this trailer in five cities around the world last Saturday where each of those five cities had one location hosting an “event” which we found out upon screening, was the premiere of this trailer. While many who attended came out incredibly disappointed that the event and their travels were for a single viewing of a 2-minute trailer soon to be released a week later, no one could deny that the trailer itself was all kinds of awesome.

The teaser trailer runs a length of 2:20 and the first 1:20 exactly are in the “real world” before Sam Flynn, the sequel’s protagonist, makes his way to the infamous arcade which will lead him into the Tron universe. Take note of his biking abilities as they no doubt will come in handy when he gets to ride some lightcycles.

Check it out and see what Disney and director Joseph Kosinski have been working on for quite some time:

While visuals are the selling point of Tron Legacy as you can tell from the trailer, I can confirm myself that it does truely look cool in 3D as well. This is one of the few upcoming 3D releases that I find worthy of the technology and glasses. Actually, I’ll go as far as saying it looks ridiculously phenomenal in 3D in IMAX and that’s how I saw this trailer the first time. If you think this is awesome looking, you will be blown away when you see it on the big screen.

On top of it looking totally awesome, the sound and music of Tron Legacy are big selling points too as you can tell by the Daft Punk work in the background of this trailer. Much like Avatar being the 3D visual-effects-heavy epic of the last holiday season, debuting on December 18th, Tron Legacy is following suit in the same fashion, releasing this December 17th, 2010 – the exact same weekend opening date for this year’s holiday season

If you saw Alice in Wonderland over the weekend, you my have been fortunate enough to see this teaser (remember, it’s just a teaser). It did not however, debut online over the weekend as moviegoers were instead treated to the release of the brand new Iron Man 2 trailer last night. However, after Jeff Bridges took home his well-deserved and long-awaited Oscar win last night as well, it’s a good time to show off this upcoming project of his.

Here’s a bonus for our readers: 20 images from the trailer:

I now can’t wait until we get to see the next trailer which will no doubt be loaded with action shots and more of the Tron universe and the new characters the movie introduces. The Dude abides.

What do you think of the trailer?

Tron Legacy stars Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Michael Sheen, Olivia wilde, Serinda Sawn, Bruce Boxleitner and John Hurt. It opens in theaters on December 17th, 2010 and we’ll be there.

  1. He's the one narrating in the beginning. The one flynn jr. called Allen.

  2. “Just sit right there, Flynn..”

    I can't wait! The Light-cycle wallpaper will have to do until then. :O(

  3. I suppose this story builds on the first one where Flynn was digitized into the computer world of the first movie. This time it looks like he goes back to explore. He was a super high level programmer and hacker in the first one. Treated like a god in Tron's world. It's an interesting question. If you found a new world where you were far more powerful than here would you go back to stay? Really it was “The Matrix” of its day. Nice to see B. Boxleitner reprise his character. I was hoping he would. Just wonder if he'll play Tron or does his program ego even exist??

  4. Hey Jerseycajun do you think he looks a little like Redford with his hair bleached?

  5. But seriously, I'm betting that it's going to be Krasinski. If he is cast, It shall be a glorious display of destruction and mayhem. Glorious, I tell you! Then there's the Avengers.I'd imagine they would have to start very early next year, and since it will be a huge movie, who knows how long filming will last.

  6. Like Redford channelling Rutger Hauer! I'm hoping for something of a Bruce boost after this comes out.

  7. Nice one, Ross – I missed that. Good to see him in full “mad Nero” mode again.

  8. For a movie that's 28 years old the original still looks unique, although CGI technology didn't exist at the time to produce much of what director Steven Lisberger wanted, and a lot of the film actually uses traditional hand-painted cel animation for the computer environments. The costume and set designs were by the French comic artist Moebius, who also did the crew outfits and spacesuits for Alien, and some for Blade Runner (I was disappointed they've not brought him back for this). The vehicles and “Tron” logo were all by Syd Mead, who designed the police spinners for Blade Runner, the Leonov spacecraft for 2010, and the Sulaco for Aliens. The music was by “gender-reassigned” musician Wendy Carlos, who worked for Stanley Kubrick on the scores for A Clockwork Orange and The Shining. I'm glad they've got some experienced electronic musicians to do the Legacy soundtrack and not some hack with a sequencer.

  9. Tron Legacy looks friking awesome!

    Is the short haired brunette lying on the chair the girl from House?

  10. The Original Tron was awesome. Looking at the previews, I hope the story is good. The visuals effects look great, especially the light cycles……..

  11. One of the unearthly visual aspects of the original is the helmet that encloses the human entirely with ghostly light. Just having the lights on the costumes does not seem other-worldly enough imo. Interestingly, the Tron-cycles fail to provide the distinct vertigo and momentum the originals did. When they zoomed to a wall then performed an instantaneous 90-degree turn, one's stomach lurched. Here, it looks just like all the rest of the reved-up cycle flick FX. It really just looks like a Tron-version of The Dark Knight's BatCycle.

    I'm glad they included Bridges but visually there's nothing compelling in this preview.

  12. I admit, as much as I like Daft Punk I wasn't sold on them doing the score when it was first announced. But now… holy crap, that's good stuff in the trailer, musically as well as visually. Can't wait for the score to be released.

  13. Yup.

  14. I kinda thought he wasn't doing anything since the Strazinski sci-fi series he was on.

  15. I know what you mean: the high-contrast eeriness is gone. Weirdly, the computer world doesn't look artificial enough. I thought the cycles not being able to do right-angle turns was a mistake, but you could say they only got away with that in the original because the graphics were so rudimentary. It's like in some ways they've literally painted themselves into a corner. The Recogniser vehicle in the still above, for example – it's almost too realistic. And what's with the sky? Good point about the Batpod.

  16. LOL. On a second viewing I see what you mean. :)
    Takes real talent to do that and it get recognized… ;)

  17. wow, i got chill-bumbs when i saw the Recognizer , my mind was blown. ive been saying “greetings programs” for so many years and people just give me a confuzed look. maybe now a less confuzed look. lol . cannont wait for this film 1st the IM2 trailer and now this. kevin flynn is back !

  18. Love it !!! I do the same thing “Greetings Programs” !

  19. Go find yourself a copy of the first one and watch it. Now imagine watching it in the early 80's as a kid. Even to this day it holds up pretty well.

    This has been a long time coming for me. December is still too far away.

  20. Think about the evolution of computer technology since the 1st movie though. The first was very linear and obviously restricted, much like the computer systems of the day. Today we have full streaming audio, video, simulations, so on and so forth. The end result of todays computer technology are far more “realistic” and it obviously has it's effect on the TRON world. At least that's my take. :P
