Walt Disney Studios has finally revealed a short plot synopsis for Joseph Kosinski’s sequel to Tron, a film almost 30 years in the making.
TRON is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
"Gates and Jobs' rivalry simply got way out of hand."
I’m still not digging the super confusing title “TRON”. They really need to do something to distinguish it from the first film somehow. I’m still a fan of TRON 2.0 but I know some people think that sounds dated in the web 1.0 world. And still no announced release date, although IMDb lists 2011.
I still wonder about product placement. Disney could charge millions to have Apple and Microsoft products in the film - which also leads me to wonder if the computers used in the film will be PC or Mac. Being sucked into PC would be the equivalent of digital hell for Kevin Flynn. Battling and competing against Trojans, 404 errors, pop-ups and the dreaded Blue Screen of Death.
