TRON Double Feature

Did you realize this year marks the 35th anniversary of Disney’s cult classic TRON? It’s not exactly the most exciting milestone anniversary, but Disney wanted to do something special for the sci-fi adventure that was a breakthrough film in the realm of special effects and in many ways a predecessor to movies like The Matrix. But you’ll have to be in Los Angeles next week to partake.

Disney has announced a special TRON double feature will be taking place at their trademark El Capitan Theatre in the heart of Hollywood as part of their ongoing Throwback Thursday screening series. The event includes a screening of both TRON and the less celebrated but visually stunning TRON Legacy. Find out details about the TRON double feature below. Read More »

Star Trek with TRON Legacy Score

Star Trek: The Motion Picture was quite the disappointment when it hit theaters in 1979, even for the most hardcore Trekkies out there. It’s a sci-fi slog that was nowhere near as satisfying of a leap from TV to film as many had hoped. Thankfully, it was followed by Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, and that rescued the film franchise and got fans back on board. But there is one thing that makes Star Trek: The Motion Picture a bit more interesting, and that’s a change in the film’s score.

Filmmaker Patrick Collins took the time to edit about 22 minutes of footage from Star Trek: The Motion Picture and enhanced it with Daft Punk’s outstanding, electric score from TRON Legacy. With all of the trippy visuals from the first Star Trek movie, Daft Punk’s score makes the perfect accompaniment.

SUICIDE SQUAD - Jared Leto as Joker

Disney hit ctrl-alt-del on Tron 3 a few years ago, citing the mixed reaction and not-good-enough box office of Tron: Legacy as key factors. Like the 1982 original, the 2010 sequel had passionate fans…there just didn’t seem to be enough of them. While an actual sequel still appears to be on hold, someone at Disney has faith in the Grid – a new Tron movie is in the works and it’s being built as a vehicle (a lightcycle?) for Jared Leto.

TRON 3

Last summer, fans of TRON and the follow-up TRON Legacy were dealt a tough blow when the developing TRON 3 was declared dead at Walt Disney Pictures. The sequel was said to be called TRON: Ascension with director Joseph Kosinski back behind the camera and Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde reprising their roles as Sam Flynn and Quora. Thousands of fans signed a petition in an attempt to get Disney to reconsider, but it doesn’t appear to have done any good. However, that doesn’t mean TRON 3 is out of the realm of possibility, at least according to one of the film’s producers.
