After years of hype and anticipation, Joseph Kosinski’s TRON: Legacy finally arrives in theaters today. The trailers promised dazzling visuals, heart-pounding light cycle sequences, a de-aged Jeff Bridges of questionable quality, and a kick-ass score by Daft Punk. Does the final film ultimately deliver?

On November 19th, I had the opportunity to participate in a day of roundtable interviews with the cast and crew of Tron Legacy. I also conducted a couple of one-on-one discussions with the filmmakers and screenwriters (but that will come later). The plan is to post one of the interviews every day up until release. Yesterday we posted an interview with Olivia Wilde. Today we have the interview with Garrett Hedlund, who plays Kevin Flynn’s son Sam Flynn in the film.
Hedlund was busy on the set of his new film, On the Road, and couldn’t make it to the junket. So we interviewed him via video chat on a macbook pro. After the jump you can read the transcript of that roundtable interview.

Walt Disney Pictures has released a fourth video clip from Tron Legacy.
The first clip featured Quorra (Olivia Wilde) saving Sam (Garrett Hedlund) from possible death, escaping through some off road terrain on a four-wheel Light Runner (one of the new vehicles introduced in the sequel). If you missed that clip, you can watch it here. The second clip, entitled “You’re Here”, showed the reunion between Sam and his father Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), who has been trapped in the computer world of Tron since his childhood. If you missed that clip, you can watch it here. The third clip, entitled “Sirens Dress Sam” (watch it here), showed Sam Flynn being suited up by sexy programs known as Sirens, and given his identity disc in preparation for combat in the light disc game. This sequence happens much earlier than the previous two clips, shortly after Sam’s arrival on the Grid.
The fourth and newest clip is entitled “The Page” is a one minute clip of the scene featuring Bruce Boxleitner, reprising his role as Alan Bradley, who pays Sam Flynn a visit to tell him about a page which was mysteriously phoned from his father’s office. Hit the jump to watch the video.

Walt Disney Pictures has released a second video clip from Tron Legacy.
The first clip which featured Olivia Wilde who plays Quorra saving Sam from possible death and takes him through some off road terrain on a four-wheel Light Runner (one of the new vehicles introduced in the sequel). If you missed that clip, you can watch it here. Where does Quorra take Sam? That question is answered in this new clip.
Entitled “You’re Here”, this new video clip shows the reunion between Sam (Garrett Hedlund) and his father Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), who has been trapped in the computer world of Tron since his childhood. Much is being made of Hedlund’s wooden performance in the Tron Night preview clips, and who knows if that will be a big deal in the big picture. Bridges performance in this sequence also comes off a bit awkward. It seems he is playing the part as a bit eccentric genius or slightly crazy, both of which are understandable considering where he’s been all these years. What do you think? Watch it now embedded after the jump. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Here’s something a little different from Screen Gems, which is far better known for mid-budget genre fare like Resident Evil and Priest than a movie about a country singer trying to get her career back on track.
But looking at this trailer for Country Strong, you might make the argument that this movie is courting a genre audience in exactly the same way that Resident Evil courts its fanbase: by giving people what they want in a stripped-down, not too challenging scenario. See what you think when Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw, Garrett Hedlund, and Leighton Meester take the stage to get crazy (heart), after the break. Read More »
