Big Batch of Brand New Tron Legacy Photos and Concept Art
If you haven't been following our updates on the Space Paranoids Online game today, secret areas with barcodes were discovered in the 15 playable leves that have codes which can be plugged into a special server to unlock a whole bunch of awesome new photos from Tron Legacy. Not only are there some badass new never-before-seen shots of an older generation white lightcycle and a huge new recognizer from the sequel, but there are some awesome disc game promo photos at the bottom that also appeared online earlier today. This stuff is awesome to see, so I wanted to present a full photo gallery for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
The rest of these promo photos come from FilmoFilia. These are the outfits worn by disc game competitors, but I think one of them might become a villain (or henchman) in the movie. Either way, they look awesome.
Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father's disappearance and is pulled into the digital world of Tron where his father has been living for 25 years.
Tron Legacy is directed by first-time filmmaker Joseph Kosinski. The screenplay was co-written by Adam Horowitz ("Lost"), Richard Jefferies (Blood Tide, Living Hell), Edward Kitsis ("Lost"), and the director of the original movie, Steven Lisberger. This first got the greenlight last year because this early teaser played well at Comic-Con. Disney is bringing Tron Legacy to theaters in 3D starting on December 17th, 2010.

The vehicles are awesome. The suits need a bit more light I think, especially the villain (red) one. Other than that it's all good. Can't wait for more photos or whatever. I tried to play the game myself and suck at it LOL. Can't seem to get the tank and gun going the same way or turning around fast enough to shoot.

All the technology in Hollywood can't replace the original Tron score by Wendy Carlos. If that score is not in the film, it will blow.

tHE ARTISTIC DIRECTION IS SOOO FUCKING COOL AND CONSISTENT WITH THE CANON OF TRON. I LOVE IT!@!!

I agree with Jeffrey, the artistic direction sucks you in. This is going to be pretty baddass. I just wish they changed the title back to "TR2N". 🙂

Neat-o. #2: I know what your saying, but I am so very excited to hear the score Daft Punk created. Also, I kinda don't like the smokey/wet feel to this one. I wish they could have figured out a way to keep it "cyber clean" like the first one.

Ugly... They lost the simplicity of the original film. Look at the vehicules: too much details... Look at the outfits, they are like some bad designed marvel super-hero suits. Look the recogniser: too much gizmos, lost all the frightening pointy edges. Dull... Even the old lightcycle. Now, with shinny chrome!!! The artistic direction is good, but i am not impressed. What i'm seeing in all this: Not even a bit (Yess!) of weirdness, and weirdness was the crux of the first opus.

@6: One of the main reasons everything in the original tron were so minimal was purely due to how long it took to render the stuff and how hard it was to make anything more than a simple shape. Everything was basically cubes and spheres thrown together to look like a tank or a bike or whatever. The rest of the art style was made to reflect the way the computer stuff was going to look. The matte paintings had to look like the animated sequences or they wouldn't fit, thus the whole movie had this very nifty angular / slick minimalism to it. As far as the weirdness goes... you have seen this, right? http://www.cinemablend.com/images/news/17450/_1268122053.jpg

@6: ...plus, look at it like this... It's been 15-25yrs since Flynn was sucked into the TRON world. Within that time frame, there has been probably 8-15 version upgrades of the original TRON program, each one improving the graphics and memory of the program. It's logical the TRON virtual world would look a lot more detailed, etc.
