Official Website for Tron Legacy's Daft Punk Score Launched
There's really no need to introduce this, but it's worth checking it out anyway, so here you go. Our friends at Tron Sector recently found a new website located at tronsoundtrack.com (that we've confirmed was created by Disney) for the Tron Legacy soundtrack by Daft Punk. Everyone already knows I'm crazy excited for Tron Legacy, especially Daft Punk's score, which has been teased many times at viral events and on various websites. There's not much on the site yet, but it has a viral feel (though it's not connected) and Tron Sector says more "will soon be appearing." Also, view the source code on the site and you will see something cool.
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. You in?

HELL YES! "The Inception" soundtrack? Come on...let's be serious, it wasn't THAT good, at least, it wasn't a classic score. This sounds like some crazy Brian Eno shit.

I really didn't appreciate the Inception soundtrack until I heard a comparison of Hans Zimmer's theme and Edith Piaf's Non Je Ne Regrette Rien. What exactly are your requirements for a classic score, Linkfx?

I love the music playing at the title screen! I can't wait for this flippin' movie!!!!

It's been far too long for the sequel to the original film to finally be released. Though the 1982 film was way ahead of its' time. I wonder how many of the younger generation plan on seeing this strictly for wanting to see Daft Punk on the silver screen, and listen to the music score?

alex billington responded to one of my comments.....*faints with fangasm*

To be correct...that's Kevin Flynn's face in the ASCII code. And also, if you visit the site with Internet Explorer, you probably won't hear the music (and visual effects when you first access the site). I used both Chrome and FireFox...both played the music and showed the visuals properly. I believe this is going to be tied into the Tron: Legacy ARG within the next few weeks or so.

"Track 3" is the song playing on the Tron Legacy soundtrack site (http://tronsoundtrack.com/), but that same song is "Track 2" on Disney's Tron Legacy site (http://disney.go.com/tron/). "Track 3" is a completely different song on Disney's site. Not sure why. Just found it to be odd.
