Here’s the central irony of Comic Con: because of the absurd Hall H admittance policies and the vagaries of scheduling, I didn’t get to see the new TRON Legacy footage. But I did interview the director, Joseph Kosinski. The full transcript of that interview will be posted shortly, but I did want to share a quick tidbit that fans of Steven Lisberger’s original 1982 film might like.
The film will feature a sequence set in the ’80s — not in the 1982 time period of the original film, but sometime later in the decade — with slightly retro stylings, and there will be a second ‘new’ light cycle design seen in that sequence, upping the new ‘cylce designs in Legacy to two.

The /Filmcast: After Dark is a recording of what happens right after The /Filmcast is over, when the kids have gone to bed and the guys feel free to speak whatever is on their minds. In other words, it’s the leftover and disorganized ramblings, mindfarts, and brain diarrhea from The /Filmcast, all in one convenient audio file. In this episode, David, Devindra, Adam, along with guests Mike Sonders from Great White Snark and Dave3 from Geeks of Doom, share some more remembrances of Comic Con, discuss the breakdown of Roger Ebert, and debate whether older directors have lost their groove. Please note: The viewpoints of Great White Snark do not reflect those of Slashfilm, its affiliates, or subsidiaries.
