Tron Legacy Photos Series & Trailer News: Only in Theaters!
Although we originally predicted that the first trailer we got to see last weekend for Tron Legacy would be online this week, MTV has confirmed that Disney is holding it until next week. Why? Because director Joe Kosinski wants you to see it in theaters in front of Alice in Wonderland in glorious 3D. "My suggestion is to see it in 3-D in surround sound this weekend and download it next week and feel free to freeze-frame and analyze," Kosinski said. "It was important to me that when people see it for the first time, they have the opportunity to see it in 3-D on a big screen." Disney has also been unveiling a series of photos on Facebook.
For those of you that may be a little upset that Disney has been teasing us with the viral and all the buzz last week, we've got a little message for you from Kosinski. Apparently a few people flew in to some cities for the "special event" last weekend and were a little upset that it was just a two-minute trailer (before anyone else).
"I was surprised at the lengths people went to," Kosinski said. "I heard about people getting on planes and flying from Chicago to New York and crazy stuff that I would have never anticipated. We were playing to the 'Tron' base, so if it doesn't play well to those guys and girls, we're in trouble. But it played great. It was fun to hear them cheer for little details that only a die-hard would know, like a glimpse of a laser or a shot of Flynn's Arcade from the outside. That's satisfying, because I've put a lot of those little Easter eggs throughout the film."
Don't worry, those of you that haven't seen it will get a chance soon, but if I were you I'd go find a showing of Alice in Wonderland in 3D and watch that. Kosinski is right, you want to see this in 3D on a huge screen for your first time. "I've had my head down plowing forward for almost two years now," he says. "It's great to be able to step back and show the fans a glimpse of the world we're creating and see their reactions." And if it's anything like last weekend, fans are going to absolute nuts after seeing this. But that's exactly why I'm so anxious to watch it online already - it's so awesome I just want to watch it over and over (not kidding)!
Over on Facebook Fan Page for Tron Legacy, Disney has been unveiling one photo at a time leading up to the trailer debut in theaters. The photos are a small series that show Sam Flynn going into Flynn's Arcade and finding the old Tron arcade machine. This is the intro you'll see in the beginning of the trailer anyway. Check out the photo series below and stay tuned for the Tron Legacy trailer arriving sometime next week!
