Tron Night Video Reactions + Quick Steve Lisberger Interview

October 28, 2010
With only two months left until Joe Kosinski's Tron Legacy hits theaters, Disney is kicking off their final marketing push, so they held their own fan-oriented promo event tonight in the form of Tron Night 2010. Similar to Avatar Day last year (see those reactions), they showed roughly 23 minutes of IMAX 3D footage at theaters in 50 countries around the world and all 50 states in the US. It was an extended look at some select scenes from the first half of the film, the same stuff that I saw at a Disney Showcase event a few weeks ago. I think it looks absolutely amazing, but I decided to turn to the fans in the theater to get their reaction as well.
I shot a quick video asking fans leaving what they thought of the footage. Almost all of them had something good to say. I also got to chat briefly with Tron director Steve Lisberger at the ending for a few minutes.
My apologies to those that felt like I was dive bombing them with my camera at the movie theater. I always like getting reactions and opinions straight from the fans at events like this, and it's obvious that almost all of them are as excited as I am for this movie. All of the footage really does look amazing, visually this movie is like nothing we've ever seen, I truly mean that, and I still expect to be blown away when it hits theaters. If you also were at Tron Night tonight, let us know what you thought! We'd love to hear more reactions!
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?
