Whether you love or hate TRON: Legacy, few would argue it’s a beautiful movie. Every penny of the Disney sequel’s reported $170 million budget is undeniably on screen in the form of all kinds of different special effects.

Bradley Munkowitz, aka GMUNK, was the lead animated graphics artist on the film and led a team that created about 10 minutes of those special effects. But not some big action set piece like one usually thinks of when talking about special effects. He created the user interfaces and holograms found in various scenes. In the world of Tron, those visuals are some of the most important things on the Grid. GMunk has uploaded six videos highlighting his work from the film, in context. They play like etherial, effects heavy movie/music videos. Check them out below.

At first glance, Martin Ansin is an unlikely choice to make Mondo posters for TRON. His work, such as the recent poster for Dracula, a sought after Star Trek Space Seed piece or his wholey unique take on Star Wars, are all extremely realistic and defined, two traits that certainly don’t describe Disney’s sci-fi franchise. Then you look about the wide-ranging scope of Ansin’s subjects and it’s obvious that his clean style can breath life into just about anything. It’s part of the reason why his art, much like Olly Moss and Tyler Stout before him, is becoming more and more sought after on a daily basis.

/Film is proud to exclusively debut the latest collaboration between Disney, Mondo and Sideshow Collectibles: a limited edition posters set (yes, it’s a paired set) of posters for TRON and TRON:Legacy by Martin Ansin. Check them both out and find out when you can buy them after the jump.
