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. AWESOME. The music is going to be great. I reminds me of how Fight Club combined the visual splendor of Fincher with that perfect soundtrack by The Chemical Bros. The results were pretty epic :-) .

    Can't wait for this.

  2. kick ass!

  3. Pardon me for my ignorance, but was this film actually filmed in 3D, or was that added in postproduction? The trailer is great.

  5. I have been waiting for a very long time for another Tron movie…and now it's finally here. I cannot wait. —-End of Line—-

  7. Man i just Nerdgasmd all over!!!!! This is gonna be EPIC!!!

  8. I believe it was SHOT in 3D. Back in December 2008 that's what we reported:

  9. Oh, of course. Thanks, Vic. Whew! Yesterday, Iron Man 2 trailer, tonight Tron Legacy. This is better than Christmas!!! :D

  10. I'm not a fan of the original, but this looks to be bad-ass.

  11. awesome
    so is this
    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2227414/

  12. I thought the soundtrack for Fight Club was made by the Dust Brothers

    Anyway, December can't come soon enough.

  13. Tron is one of my all-time favorite movies and Legacy looks sweet.

  14. You're right – the Chemical Brothers called themselves that originally and had to change their name for legal reasons.

  15. Oh man… first Iron Man 2 and then this.
    I could just be viewing it through rose-tinted lenses of nostalgia, but THIS is my must see film of 2010. I loved the original, and still love the original, the game, hell, even had the comics that came out a few years ago.

  17. What does that link have to do with Tron?

  18. Should be pretty damned cool, here's hoping for the best.

  19. It's not flashy like most trailers. Very understated which is nice. Creates a sense of mystery about the story and characters. They didn't give away to much. I'm excited.

  20. what is this about? some kid finding a new world or? sorry but i've not heard of this before:p looks cool tho:)

  21. IDK….saw this in 3-D before Alice and I know so many are sooooooo excited…but if you saw the orginal….28 years ago btw, on a big screen it was a big deal. I just am not impressed, ( with the exception of Olivia) I will see this, but for me in 2010, it is not a “must see”, such as like IM2 for instance. With a myrid of lack-luster films coming in 2010, maybe in December I will change my mind.

  22. Yeah, I've noticed that Disqus seems to have its own version of spammers.

  23. They showed the original Tron some days ago on HDnet. New one seems to keep the same vibe as the original. I'm just hoping it can still grab folks who don't remember it when it was first released.

    Side note, I partly wish Bruce Boxleitner was in more quality films lately. It was nice seeing him reprising his role in Tron, which you'd think he'd appear in the digital world since he WAS Tron. He has a good screen presence, but seems relegated to direct-to-video movies.

  24. Is the main actor the kid from Four Brothers?

  25. Wow! I have goose pimples from this. Where was Bruce Boxleitner though?

  26. Wow! I have goose pimples from this. Where was Bruce Boxleitner though?

  27. Holy crap, did anyone pause throughout the trailer to see who Michel Sheen is? It's the guy in white acting as if he's playing a guitar, just after you see them throwing the discs at one another. WTF?!

  28. What's the story? I don't know anything about this movie, or the movie before it except it was around 20 years ago and that Jeff Bridges was in both of them.

  29. I am officially pumped! o/
