Black Sheep Previews: TRON LEGACY

In 1982, a computer hacker was sucked into the world of computers and subjected to participate in dangerous gladiator style games against his will. In 2010, the virtual world will be a simple fact of life and one single virtual world worker will try to take down the master control program. Yes, it does all sound a little too nerd herd for most but the original TRON made two times what it cost to make and went on to earn two Oscar nominations. I must admit that when I heard they were making a sequel / franchise continuation / remake / reimagining of it, I didn't see much of a point. Watching the trailer for it though, which debuted at this year's Comic-Con, it is clear to me that TRON LEGACY has similar goals to the first when it comes to visual style. Even if you are not a techno geek, there is no denying the smooth artistry of this trailer. There is also no denying that whatever you want to call it, this new TRON was indeed well warranted. TRON LEGACY is scheduled for release in 3D in 2010 and was directed by Joseph Kosinski, a first timer, not that you would ever know it.
