March 8, 2010

Tron Legacy Trailer

Disney has finally debuted the teaser trailer for Tron Legacy online. This is one of those drop everything, watch now kind of trailers. As excited as I am for Iron Man 2, I am even more excited for Tron Legacy. We didn't expect this trailer to be online this early, but the viral game from earlier was already solved, and here it is for your viewing pleasure in glorious high definiton at the viral site: This is only a teaser and it's our very first look at any real footage from the movie, so don't be let down if you wanted to see more action. The song used in this is a Daft Punk song specifically made for the trailer as well. Enjoy!

Watch the teaser trailer for Joe Kosinski's Tron Legacy:

[flv: 598 250]

You can also watch the Tron Legacy teaser in high def on this site:

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.

    Ill!!!! Now if tv shows and movies would follow suit and do sequels instead of remakes/reboots, we might have a chance...
  • Ajax
    Oh... My... God...

    ?? Waiting to be impressed.

  • movie mike
    good trailer but waaaaay overhyped
  • arjones
    I'm so excited to see this. Loved the original and with boxleitner and bridges in this too, makes me happy. I hope it's amazing. FX look killer and I hope I'm not coming in pants too soon.
  • Spider Man
    Decent trailer. B The tech trailer released at Comic Con 2 years ago or so was the best representation of the reboot. Only time will tell. Tech trailer ruled A++ this one was just ok. Anyone agree?
  • nelson
    #7 NOPE
  • dUPE
    Amazing!!!! Looks fucking sick!
  • whomever
    Looks cool, but I'm not about to mark out over it just yet.
  • Sean
    Alex, this looks amazing and all, but you are the one who has hyped this movie up for me. i liked tron, but you are the one really getting me into this... so if it sucks. i blame u
  • REAL6
    This is way way way more polished than the Comic-Con teaser...
  • sean
    okay i do not know what just happened with comment 11. i only put 10 and then it duplicaed... sorry
  • Ian Kuah
    I can't believe this is actually happening. Every time i watch this trailer i feel like i'm in a dream. December seems like an eternity away.
  • Ian Kuah
    BTW, does anyone know if the music from this trailer is Daft Punk, or just filler trailer hype music?
  • DRM
    Yeah...I dunno. I'm excited for the movie of course. i have high hopes. But all this trailer promises is a visual spectacular. And you know what else was a visual spectacular? Transformers 2. Wish they'd show more about the actual plot and characters. But it's still early.
  • DAFT PUNK SCORE! I'm sure it's them in there. Near the end. Ridiculous electro rumble punch.
  • Matthew
    When the girl strummed whatever that was like a guitar, for me the trailer hit the mark cause it gave me a Mad Max vibe. Considering it's been so long in there, who knows how crazy it may have gotten. The visual are spot on, and the choice of Daft Punk doing the music, Hanz Zimmerman move over, lol well just for this title... and Jeff Bridges, enough said. I never "got" into the Tron world, but I do appreciate it, Disney better not screw this one up. I'm not even thinking about this in 3d yet.
  • Cody w
    Its a teaser guys..its meant to tease you and it did just that...that was freaking sweet cant wait.
  • Ian Kuah
    @18 Since Disney did the original, i think it should be alright, but i'm right there with you - it better not get screwed up.
  • livingword
    I have never seen the original Tron, but now I feel as if I have to. That is the best looking trailer I have seen in a long time. I am probably more excited about this movie than any other movie this summer. That is above Iron Man and even The Last Air bender.
  • Imran Hussain
    Looks like it has some potential to beat Avatar. I'm just saying it could happen. Hey Alex when are we gonna see a trailer for Jonah Hex. I mean its coming out this summer and we havent seen one single footage.
  • I was not looking forward to this at all as I thought the original was gimmicky and kiddie-like. But this trailer changed my mind. Very cool.
  • B-Han
    LEGIT! this is gonna be sick.
  • DoomCanoe
    mmm hmmm
  • Daniel Felts
    Yeah. Awesome. Comic Con trailer gave you less information but tWas cooler. But still can't wait.
  • David I.
    I GUESS it looks good. All the hype made me expect more.
  • Sharlto
  • Lazarus from Sparta!!! DEATHKLOK RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a TRON fan!!!
  • eric
    I barely know anything about Tron so this teaser didn't do much for me. Not that exciting. Kind of boring. Jeff Bridges is in it, so that's cool. Yeah...
  • Icarus
    Yep... I'm in.
  • OMG! OMG! OMG!, What an Amazing movie that Tron Legacy is going to be!!!!!. I have way much more hope now for this movie being good now, then i ever did!. Disney, i think you make have another box office hit on your hands, that'll be as good a Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, or maybe even better!. I hope this movie has more sequels coming out in the future!, thaat would be awesome!.
  • Fantastic teaser...looks killer. Looks like it's going to be this year's Avatar, at least relative to how cool much of a benchmark it sets visually. It seems like this is going to have a decent amount of focus on plot and character though, I just get the vibe like there is more to this than killer visuals, although killer visuals will be a huge part of it, I'm sure.
  • ben chacko
    SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOD! why can't it be december!
  • jake the snake
    hmmm...takes the cake
  • Ron
    The graphics looks good and decent trailer but still on the fence about Garrett Hedlund. They would need to have a decent chunk of acting from 2010 Academy Award winner Jeff Bridge besides a cameo to save this movie! Ha ha!
  • People's Champ
    Looks good, They're not going to show every friggin thing in a teaser, the movie isnt coming out for 9 months.
  • Tom Cruise
    Olivia Wilde and Daft Punk, ive become an addict and i need my fix now!
  • Matthew
    oh, and to add to my previous comment, i still sit on Inception being the best trailer for all the new movies coming out. Inception my choice being that I have no idea who is who and what is really taking place. But Tron is so close, so close. My excitement is high, and I tell you, it's a great time to be a movie lover!
  • Ben
    was that david bowie looking character Michael Sheen? if so, i wasn't expecting that, didn't even know he was in this. teaser looks great. daft punk score sounds like a perfect fit. this movie just moved up in my books, and now stands, beside inception and scott pilgrim vs. the world, as must sees this year. Now I'm really only curious to see how scott pilgrim looks in sight and sound. Tron Legacy was undoubtedly cool, but Pilgrim is the trailer I want.
  • Brandon
    Geekgasmic!!!!! Olivia Munn is sexy as all hell! Fantastic in every which way I imagined.
  • zachh
    saw the trailer while i watched alice in wonderland, the trailer was actually halfway in 3-D hahah it got everyone pumped up!
  • Xerxex
    I'm looking foward to Garret Hudlund's perfromance, the trailer was pretty good.
  • Brandon
    I wrote Olivia Munn woops. Ment Wilde. Hurrrduurrrr
  • Angry Chief
    Okay, okay. I give. I am interested.
  • IKE
    HELL YEAH!!! I am going to this opening night!
  • Zac
    This looks amazing. looks like they are adding a ton of new characters, which could be a good thing. I'll be there opening night, also.
  • Fred Schepsi
    Just spent $15 to see Alice in Wonderland in IMAX 3D (which was good, not great, but good - and to all the people who said the third act was fairly vanilla, how else was it going to go?) and damn it, there was no Tron trailer! NO TRAILER! Fred Schepsi is frickin' angry, and you wouldn't like Fred Schepsi when he's angry. What is the deal? I thought it was playing in IMAX. So disappointed. Also some stupid kid kept kicking the back of my seat the whole movie and there was a crying baby in the theater too (and no it wasn't me).
    😀 YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that is what i saw when I watched Jonny deep in woderland, which was the only thing worth watching :) cant wait, they should re-equip all the Imax theaters with louder speakers, concert style especially if DAFT PUNK is scoring the music 😀 ................... just a thought :) dang Fred you paid $15 , shoulda gone during matnee deal you woulda seen it for $9
  • OMG holy FUCK what was that!? Daft Punk - amazing, the visuals - at least interesting, outcome - *_* I want music from the trailer NAO.
  • deltavoyage
    The trailer was overhyped, but it was still great. Loved the original Daft Punk score, and the teaser definitely left me wanting more. I will be looking forward to December 17.
  • Bjoernd
    I loved the trailer - it was in front of Alice in 3D here in Germany. The score is what i´m really excited about, but i don´t really know if the movie will be that great, cause Disney´s involved and i was hugely disappointed by Alice... Still i´m pretty excited about this. Greetings from Nürnberg, Germany
  • adrian
    ...the music it's out of this world. visuals awesome, i expect this movie to really entertain me.
  • beavis
    the movie is looking good...........and that music is sweet!
  • User
    As a long-time fan of the original (which I watched again the other day) I never expected to ever see a sequel, but the seed was definitely sown with the 2003 game 2.0. It was kind of sad seeing the dusty Flynn's arcade... But wasn't the game Flynn played Space Paranoids? I guess he replaced it with the Tron machine after the events in the first film. Those touch surface keyboards and screens sure were ahead of their time too... Nice to see Bruce Boxleitner and Jeff Bridges back, but I hope to see more of their mature characters than just cameos - as well as Cindy Morgan!
  • Looks pretty decent. Dunno what the complaining folks are jibbering aboot. Totally web 2.0 Now the cgi has finally caught up from the original being so far out, they can have rounded corners!
  • NathanEG
    'Tough guy' swagger at 2:20.
  • m4st4
    ''TRON LEGACY'' is, besides ''Inception'', my No.1 movie this year! So slick! ''2001.: A Space Odissey'' ('68.) + ''Tron'' ('82.) + ''MAtrix ('99.) + Odissey ('68.) = THIS! Simply amazing...
  • Zak
    michael sheen with the cane! this looks amazing! i was thinking they were going to turn down the style compared to the the SFX Test. Thank you Tron Legacy
  • m4st4
    ...sorry about double posted ''Odissey'' LOL, but look at that couch! It's so Kubrick! XD
  • Clover
    No....same trailer shown before Alice, and it was in 3-D. Still not impressed and it has been over 20 years since the number was disconnected. 28 years to be exact if the film takes place in 2010. If you were not "in" the orginal....28 years ago and saw it on the big screen, you won't get it and you will not be that impressed. What Disney did 28 years ago was very cool. This just seems more of the same in 2010..............28 years later.
  • Cracky
    Everything about this trailer and movie--right now--seems incredibly fresh. The vibe is excellent. That trailer leaves so much to be seen, but I'll be damned if I said I wasn't excited. Daft Punk fit the bill perfect. Is it me, or does anyone else think this movie will be diabolical? Good step forward.
  • shadow
    I have a feeling Daft Punk will be getting more movie work after this film is released.
  • Dreckent
    Everyone who did not think this trailer was absolutely awesome is an asshole and deserves to die.
  • Robbie
    AWESOME! This is, along with The Road and The Last Airbender (and Iron Man 2), my most anticipated movie of 2010!
  • Jo
    "this was just ok" "Waiting to be impressed" "waaaaaay overhyped" To all the haters, I just feel sorry for you. Really, to not be excited or impressed by this?! Cra-zy!!! And stop moaning about lack of story line - what does TEASER mean, huh?! Sheesh! 😉 Sean: "OMG, OMG, OMG!" Ha, those were my exact words in an email to my husband, I couldn't get more coherant than that. "never seen the original Tron" To livingword and any others young-uns, Tron (the original) is an amazing film. It may fall a little flat on younger people but I heartily suggest you give it a go, if only to get the backstory before this new film comes out. I'm 30 and must have first seen it in the late 80s, at around 10 years old, and even then it was a good few years old, but the concept just blew me away and hasn't diminished (for me) over the years. I remember before the PC game, Tron 2.0, came out the rumour mill went crazy about the possibility of a follow up film but, from the looks of it, I am heartily glad it hasn't happened until now. 3D?!! Happy as a pig in you-know-what. Tron 2.0 was great too, BTW, if you can get hold of it... shame they can't port it to the iPhone to add to the hype.
  • malax
    HOLY COW!! That is one slick update..
  • Gex
    Looks promising, but that's all. Still unsure of how it will turn out. The bike driving at the beginning made me think "Oh great, another teenage dropout movie." Then the rest of it lifted my spirits. The music, the atmosphere, it's all there. Just hoping everything else is there to go along with it. The teenage cast might ruin it, but after seeing Star Trek, I'm willing to give this a chance. Try not to mess this sequel up Disney. As for the original, cheesy, but very entertaining. I still like the graphic style they used to this day.
  • jeffrey
    I'm thinking with a Dec 17th release Kosinski is looking for a best pic,best efx,best soundtrack nomination. Thoughts?
  • David Banner
    Same release date Avatar had? :) Looks really cool, cudos!
  • Brandon
    Im sorry, this looks nothing like Tron. That dude playing Flynn's son already looks terrible. I just cringed at his fake facial expression. And the rest? More real world effects meets Tron. I suppose they "michael bay'd" the movie in a way. meh
  • RYan
    Now that was a badass teaser trailer! I didn't give two shits about that movie until now...
  • Rick
    Would I need to see the original to really be impressed by this?
  • zero credibility
    ^ I agree.. how come there's smoke inside the digital world ? I liked the digitised style of the original.
    the original is a cult classic,this is gonna be massive hit,i'm gonna explode with all this trailer goodness this week iron man 2,tron legacy what is gonna be next.
  • K-yle
    ...i loved this trailer the score daft punks i got a boner, but alos you people are just to....whats the word retarded you expect so much outta tralers, damn its a teaser...TEASER lol ok it teased the senses lol im excited to see this very excitede boner x2
  • SkaOreo
    #71 Yeah, how dare they make the new Tron movie look better than the original? So doesn't look like Tron, man.
  • Geoff
    Amazed at the people who aren't salivating over this...I damn near had tears in my eyes watching this. Freaken awesome stuff!
  • m4st4're using the M.B., that's just wrong. Daft Punk is in my head all will continue to be all night long, outstanding.
  • m4st4
    Tron world is not the same as the one from the original! Actually, it's totally different server and, obviously, something called virtual evolution happened. It's expanded universe now, without rules, they're racing of the grid, world has much more colors (Tron ending, remember?) etc. So, stop whining, this is just a TEASER and we have to wait 10 months to see this... Also, continued from my previous, half-eaten post: ''Daft Punk is in my head all day and will continue to be all night long, outstanding.
  • El
    Just back from watching the new Alice at IMAX and this trailer was shown before it, 3d bikes ftw!
  • DarkRaven18599
    Bring on the Tron!
  • should be a great flick :)
  • Darren
  • Flynn Lives
    Pure Excellence!! I have seen it twice in 3D (once IMAX 3D (Limited Exclusive Event)) Joseph Kosinski is the perfect director, his vision is incredible the original is classic but this is an INCREDIBLE improvement, i cannot wait THE GAME HAS EVOLVED EVERYONE MUST BE READY!!! DEC. 17 2010 - End of Line.
  • Trey
    Who is the guy in the orange?
  • Cody w
    #71 Dont you dare compare this to a Michael bay flick...You crossed the line....crossed the..line.
  • dUPE
    Nothing wrong with Bay - he does his thing well, even if it is for 14 year old boys. BUT COME ON, MAN - THIS IS NOTHING LIKE A BAY MOVIE! How could you compare? I think this has some legs and will do well at the box office.
  • Moviegimp
    Saw this with Alice in 3D. It seemed to missing some 3D unless it only went 3D in the computer world. That would make sense I guess. It's better now because it goes pretty fast and you have to watch it more than once to catch everything. I have a question, probably to early to know the answer, who is the bad guy? Is Flynn crazy now? In the original it was captured banking programs that were sent to the grid to fight. This is why they all lost. The MPC and Stark were trying to take over all the computers. Unless Flynn is now trying to do that I don't see a reason for the games. I don't want them to be gone it just seems that they aren't being used the same this time, maybe. P.S. LOVE TRON!
  • First Tron than a while later Hackers those were great sci-fi+soft cyber-punkish movies of my teen years.(hey i am aware that Blade Runners is the holy Book, i know :D) the sequel to the Hackers was not a success but Legacy looks so sweet it makes my teeth ache 😀 the visuals really are up to the original ones intent and also Bridges is also in it so it really is a sequel imo, i hate when sequels dont have the core characters / faces from the original.
  • kitano0
    Tron was fantastic. All you young-us as a previous poster said, can't really remember what a buzz Tron caused back in the 80's. Wasn't a great big hit, but obviously a fun, coool movie. Disney was gutsy to do it, and they did a great job! I just hope they aren't afraid to give us a killer light show...A good story would be great, but with this type movie...I mean, it is a video game! Let it rock!!!!
  • Lando
    I dont know about you guys but I saw Tron in the theaters and it rocked, this looks AMAZING and it totally falls in line with the previous movie! cant wait... does anyone know if Syd Mead is in on this?
  • DiR3cT
    Well even though the trailer could have done without that last part at the end (the collision), It looks ok lets just hope it isn't trash. I suppose I better see the first now.
  • Dan
    Why are all the characters in the computer wearing cotton suits with a few parts of their bodies have lit up parts lit up and all of their hair is showing? This is just real people in a CG city, no where do the characters in the computer look like they are from the computer, people wearing cotton pjs?
  • Dan
    Ok I take back what I said, in the original Tron everyone was wearing cotton pajamas. There was a sexy female character in the original who was red, who had hair exposed. But I still think the characters here are not lit up enough with colors all over their bodies.
  • mC iVAN
    AWESOME! cant wait for this one. for sure this will be the highest grossing film of 2010.
  • Nuika
    This video is looking superb, I'm sold 110%...i'm actually going to go see this in theaters. I was already planning to just because it's tron but now it's official, even if I have to go alone.
  • RachaelReplicant
    I actually enjoy watching movies by can sit anywhere and I get to develop my own feedback before sharing it with others. Peoples opinions and energy and excitement can easily influence you into thinking you watched an awesome movie only to get home and realize otherwise...
  • User
    @98 - I think there are many of us who enjoy watching movies alone. But I will definitely grab a friend or go on a date to see this movie :)
  • N M Singh
  • max s.
    I'm one of those people who have never had anything to do with Tron so this trailer doesn't do much for me. It looks like it will be good but i'm more excited for Iron Man 2
  • Matt
    Daft Punk is what gets me excited!!!!
  • tearheaven
    I am so excited I shit myself.
  • Jeff to GEOFF
    FINALLY! I'm with GEOFF below me (maybe it's our names) but I am literally teary eyed watching this. Brings back childhood memories of watching TRON as a kid and being amazed and infatuated with computers, video games, the light cycles, the discs, everthing about this movie. It's so worth the wait to finally see them bring this back to the big screen with the original cast. AND CLU PLAYS A HUGE ROLE! I can't believe it. I can cry about this I'm so damned happy. Thank you DISNEY. If even this movie sucks, the trailer alone is worth the excitement to see ALAN and FLYNN back on the big screen, together, back in the machine. I love it. The recognizer looks utterly amazing. Not thrilled about the light cycles but who cares. TRON II - nearly 30 years in the making!
  • NY til I die
    @104 i 100% agree...finally a remake i dont need to make fun of. i havent been this excited since Ironman
  • case
    I'm ...ready... now.
  • jasonmd2020
    About the smoke in the machine world and the characters looking like people in a CG city, it's been 28 years in the video game world. Go back and look at the Atari 2600 you were playing in 1982, and look at the PS3's & XBOX 360's out now. The computer world looks different because the graphics engines are better! And speaking of graphics, they either cloned Bridges, found an incredible look-a-like, or did some insane CGI magic for the CLU character. My girlfriend & I did a "HSWTF!?!?!" When we saw him!
  • Jacob Crim
    "And speaking of graphics, they either cloned Bridges, found an incredible look-a-like, or did some insane CGI magic for the CLU character. My girlfriend & I did a "HSWTF!?!?!" When we saw him!" I heard they used the Benji Button technology to make his avatar, I am just so glad he is in it.
  • Koe
    We have waited but we always new their would of been a sequel We knew and we waited. Thank you! Mr. Steven Lisberger Its been a long time at 40 its good to feel like a teenager again its always in us. This shows us that there is still persons out there with that special timeless talent of youth and imagination. Its about time we step back to the "Classics" of Sci Fi They will never die! NEVER!
  • cindy morgan is hot
    @108 - That would be incredible if they've done that. I really hope this movie is a memorable one. If the script is solid as that CG looks slick, this has the potential to be a genre classic.
  • Fisherr
    Oh boy! Looks pretty wicked.
  • They spent 64 days shooting the film, Post-production required 68 weeks because of all the special effects!.
  • "They spent 64 days shooting the film, Post-production required 68 weeks because of all the special effects!." LOL I hope that the movie shouldn't be a crap. a little few can beat Avatar :-) HEHE But, those who dare wins :-)
  • joSEF
    ok is DAFT PUNK doing the soundtrack yes or no?
  • porno i
    The fantastic teaser…looks killer. Looks like it's going to be this year's Avatar, at least relative to how cool much of a benchmark it sets visually.
  • Great trailer. Looks really good
  • jassenfeffer
    Holy buckets of glue Batman, did someone say, "TRON"?
  • Big smiles across the board; i'm dizzy with anticipation! you'z guys who weren't impressed probably didn't grow up with the original like some of us did, and you're also gonna miss out on something really great: the sequel to the progenitor of CyberPunk; at least that's how i feel about the original. The classics have come back to make us dream once again.
  • The first tron was pretty good and really adventurous. this tron is gonna be pretty good.
  • i love to watch movies that made it to the box office, they are usually great movies with good story -`-
  • cheap bras
    Amazing write-up! This could aid plenty of people find out more about this particular issue. Are you keen to integrate video clips coupled with these? It would absolutely help out. Your conclusion was spot on and thanks to you; I probably won’t have to describe everything to my pals. I can simply direct them here!
