Lots of 'Tron' Updates: Daft Punk Remixes + 'Tron: Uprising' Trailer
Can you believe it's been exactly... 76 days since Tron Legacy first hit theaters? Well to keep your spirits up, we've got some exciting Tron-related news to feature this morning, as quite a bit of it has been hitting the web recently. First up, SlashFilm has details on the Tron Legacy R3CONFIGUR3D album full of remixed versions of Daft Punk's songs from the original soundtrack. Artists include Moby, M83, Crystal Method, Oakenfold, Sander Kleinenberg, and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Release is April 5th, not too long of a wait. Hit the official site to pre-order. There's also a teaser for the new animated Tron TV series!
This teaser just hit the web and it's pretty badass, so I thought I'd throw this up as well. It's basically same kind of CGI from the movie with animated characters, but it looks cool, I'm definitely going to check it out. Tron: Uprising will begin airing on the Disney XD Channel during the Summer of 2012 - showcasing an impressive voice cast, including: Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry, Lance Henriksen and Bruce Boxleitner - reprising his role as TRON! There's also a 10-part micro animated series in the works that will premiere in the Fall. Check out the first teaser here:
Also, I've got to give thanks to Tron-Sector for the tip on the video. In other Tron news, there's a screening in LA coming up this weekend of the original Tron with "special guests" - get tickets from Fandango now. And don't forget to pre-order the DVD/Blu-Ray if you haven't, it's hitting shelves on April 5th next month.
Tron Legacy was released in theaters on December 17th late last year after two years in production and has gone on to make over $395 million worldwide. Did you enjoy the movie? Comment on the Sound Off article.
Tron Legacy was 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 was first greenlit because the test teaser played so well at Comic-Con. Disney finally opened Tron Legacy in theaters on December 17th last year in IMAX 3D, the truly optimal viewing experience. The movie will arrive on DVD & Blu-Ray starting April 5th - I've got mine pre-ordered!
