Daft Punk

Stitch informs us that Amazon is now accepting preorders for the Tron: Legacy soundtrack, which is being scored by electronic music pioneers Daft Punk. The album now has a release date: November 23rd 2010, about a month before the film hits theaters on December 17th 2010. No further information is available at this time.

As San Diego Comic-Con International nears, speculation begins around what we might see at the event. Many people would probably agree that Tron holds the biggest most shocking moment in Comic-Con history, when Disney surprised an audience in Hall H two years ago with a fully rendered CG test/teaser for the film. Last year they arguably had the best marketing at the Con with a real-life Flynn’s Arcade and life-size Lightcycle. Disney has already announced that this year Tron: Legacy will invade Comic-Con in full force, even to go as far as renaming the convention Comic-TRON in press releases. What can we expect from Tron at this year’s Con? Nobody knows… But I can tell you one thing…

To promote the Adidas Star Wars Originals Collection, LucasFilm created a special two minute commercial which inserts David Beckham, Daft Punk, Snoop Dogg, Franz Beckenbauer, Noel Gallagher, Ian Brown, Ciara, Jay Baruchel, and DJ Neil Armstrong into the famous Cantina Scene from Star Wars . I guess the revisionist explanation is that it is an “intergalactic 2010 FIFA World Cup™ viewing party.” Watch the two minute video, embedded after the jump.

Last week we reported that Daft Punk would be providing the musical score for Tron 2.0. /Film reader Andrew sent over this fan made trailer for the original Tron that incorporates the music of Daft Punk. It take a little while to get going, but I think its worth watching, if only for its popculture flashback value. Plus, there is an extreme lack of interesting news tonight… Video after the jump.

Daft Punk Scoring the New Tron

The confirmation comes from Upcoming Film Scores and the Disney folk they checked it out with: Daft Punk have signed on to write the score to Joseph Kosinski’s new Tron movie – Tron, Tron 2.0, Tr2n, 2ron or whatever the heck it ends up being called. May I suggest Trons? Jeez. It’s gonna get a bad name no matter what.

Officially, this is Daft Punk’s first full score. This strikes my skeptical side as a little odd seeing as they starred in, directed, edited, wrote and shot Electroma. The score for that film is credited to one Stephen Baker though I’m more than a little doubtful about his existence. I wouldn’t be too surprised if Baker turns out to be a Roderick Jaynes style fabrication. Should you be reading this, Mr. Baker, please do get in touch. I’d hate to be denying credit where it’s actually due.
