I’m usually part of the chorus railing against Hollywood for dusting off old ideas for movies rather than inventing new ones. Still, my inner (and outer) geek is pretty jazzed about this teaser trailer for the upcoming Tron movie (which is currently called Tron Legacy but was previously known as Tron 2.0 and the much cheesier TR2N), slated for a 2010 release.
I’m not even all that concerned over how the “legacy” of Tron is handled. Let’s face it, the original was lots of fun but wasn’t exactly rich in character development or plot complexities. It survives because of the initial wow factor (and maybe the Journey soundtrack). I just don’t know if the new one will be able to pack the same punch in a post-Matrix world. Still, it’s got Jeff Bridges so how bad can it be?
