Rate-a-Trailer: Tron Legacy


Following last year’s teaser, the second trailer for Tron Legacy is more plot-oriented, with the father-son narrative fleshed out. Though the introduction into the computer-generated Tron world and the lead channeling Chris Pine in Star Trek are a little preposterous, the awesome light cycle trails and a taste of the Daft Punk score are anything but. In fact, it plays a lot like the Watchmen trailer did, with slowly crescendoing dystopian music that leads into slow-mo action sequences, new character quick pans, and a zoom in on the pivotal character (Oscar winner Jeff Bridges).

Official Synopsis: Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

What do you think of Hedlund’s turn as the younger Flynn? Or Bridges shot at next year’s Oscars? Tron Legacy 3D hits theaters December 17, 2010.
