You might be wondering right about now just what this worldwide event is. Well, unfortunately we're not quite sure but others are guessing at either an advanced showing of the new trailer (which is set to premiere before next week's Alice in Wonderland), or perhaps a full sequence from the movie. Evidence to support the latter comes from the fact that 42 Entertainment (the company running the viral campaign) did something similar when they showed the opening bank robbery sequence from The Dark Knight in IMAX theaters six months before the movie was released. The more I think about it, the more a full sequence seems more likely than just a new trailer, don't you agree?
Moving on from the viral campaign event, here's the aforementioned new image from Tron Legacy. Like the other images we've seen over these last few months it doesn't give any spoilers away but teases us enough to get us excited. Here's the image below (click for much larger version):
Thoughts on the viral marketing campaign worldwide event: Do you think it is a trailer or perhaps more than that (a full sequence from the movie)? What do you make of the latest image?
