Rumor: Tron 3 to star production in the Fall

When TRON: Legacy was released it was announced that it was the launch of a new franchise, and usually when a film is highly successful and is part of a franchise the rest of the movies come out pretty quick (disregardin...

It looks like whatever work David DiGilio accomplished is now being handed off to a new scribe for another go around. Jesse Wigutow has been hired as the new writer for the sequel to Tron: Legacy and will conti...

Do people still care about this movie? I guess so. I mean, they are planning a sequel, supposedly, right? Though, not for a few years off, probably. Well, if you were that enamored with the admittedly cool and cyberpunk-flavored light cycles from Tron: Legacy, you can, like, totally buy your own now. Except it'll cost $55,000... but I know you're good for it. You can drive it off the lot, take it cruising around the Caribbean. I'll just sit here holding... Well, enough of that.

The replica is modeled by a one Hammacher Schlemmer. Yeah. You can just tell he was that geek everyone picked on in high school. Now he's making Tron light cycles. And what? The bike itself is fitted with a Suzuki 996cc, 4-stroke engine and electroluminescent strips built into the tire cowlings, wheel rims, and body of the bike to give it that Tron glow. Whatever all that means. I went to school for graphic design, I don't know these terms. Gimme a break, man... GAHHH. I'm gonna make a light cycle 3D model now. And after modeling that pterodactyl for the awards thingy, you know I can do it.

Tron 3 a go? Bruce Boxleitner says so

When was the last time an actor dropped news that a sequel to a popular franchise would be happening, and it actually happened? Not too often, really. But here we are with Bruce Boxleitner saying Tron 3 is a done deal, a...

Tron, The Birds, and Wizard of Oz minimal movie posters
by Liz Rugg

These really pretty minimalist posters were created by illustration artist Crystal White, who also happens to write for Flixist's sister site for all-things-Japanese: Japanator. Crystal is graduating with a BFA in Illustration from Syracuse University in only a few days, and these lovely posters are proof of her talent.

I particularly like the Tron ones, their color schemes are so indicative of the movies. And the screen-print style of the Wizard of Oz poster is very intriguing too! Click below to see Crystal's posters of The Birds, Tron, and The Wizard of Oz.

More Tron Easter eggs, more Tron 3 hints photo
More Tron Easter eggs, more Tron 3 hints
by Matthew Razak

Look, we can beat around the bush and call things we hear on the internet rumors and speculation, but the chances of Disney not making another Tron film in the very near future are about as high as binary code featuring the number 2 in it (bad computer humor FTW!). It's going to happen and if the Tron: The Next Day Easter egg didn't convince you maybe this one blatantly setting Dillinger up as the bad guy in some future film will. Most likely both clips will be part of something bigger on the Legacy DVD.

This clip comes from the same guy who leaked The Next Day, so it's pretty safe to bet that this is a viral account of some sort. And now we have a shining example of how to do viral right. If Disney starts building Tron rep from the release of the Legacy's DVD and keeps it going strong they could have an even bigger phenomenon on their hands than Tron already is.

Also, this trailer gives me a lot of hope for where they're going with the franchise.

The Next Day bridges Tron, Tron: Legacy, and Tron 3? photo
The Next Day bridges Tron, Tron: Legacy, and Tron 3?
by Alex Katz

We reported back in January that Tron 3 was nearing a greenlight from Disney after a fairly wonderful showing at the box office. Now, First Showing has a leaked Easter Egg from the upcoming Tron: Legacy Blu-Ray that offers a few hints as to the future of the franchise. We’ve heard of these before, as Bob Muir reported earlier, but now we have actual evidence that such scenes exist. The video above basically recaps the events of the original Tron and serves as a bridge for everything that came between Tron and Tron: Legacy. It ends very soon after the events of Legacy, though I don’t want to spoil that here. You animals can watch the video for that action.

We still haven’t seen the other two rumored scenes, which supposedly feature Olivia Wilde’s Quorra speaking to the press and an IM conversation between Cillian Murphy’s Ed Dillinger and his father, the human antaognist from Tron. With the Blu-Ray releasing in April, who knows if we’ll see the other two scenes before that?

Tron Legacy DVD/Blu-ray may have a teaser for Tron 3 photo
Tron Legacy DVD/Blu-ray may have a teaser for Tron 3
by Bob Muir

It's clear that Disney wanted Tron Legacy to set up a new franchise, and for the most part I think it worked. The film was a fun excursion filled with lots of eye candy. And while it may have "only" pulled in $330 million worldwide, that's not bad at all from where I'm standing. So I won't be surprised if Tron 3 gets greenlit.

A recent rumor lends credence to the idea of a third film. According to AICN, there may be a teaser for Tron 3 on the Tron Legacy DVD and Blu-ray. There are at least three scenes, the first of which is a confrontation between Alan (Bruce Boxleitner) and a real-life Ram (Dan Shor) about Ram's "Flynn Lives" campaign. The second is a scene in which Quorra (Olivia Wilde) is hassled by press at ENCOM about having just spoken to Kevin Flynn. The final scene is vague, something about test shots for some plan discussion between Ed Dillinger (David Warner) and his son (Cillian Murphy), apparently only through text messages.

What's interesting about these possible teasers is that Cillian Murphy's character was barely present in Tron Legacy, simply named as a reference to his father's involvement in the original Tron. He's too big an actor and that is too interesting of a reference to chalk it up to just a cameo appearance. If feels like they're setting him up to become a major part of the plot in the next film, hopefully with the return of David Warner.

It's noted that these teaser scenes were actually shot before Tron Legacy's release, so it's not entirely new material made after the film came out. Still, it's interesting stuff, and the header image shows off the set of the first scene between Alan and Ram, with another image in the gallery. Hopefully this stuff does make the final DVD and Blu-ray, which is coming out on April 11 in the UK but still doesn't have a US date. Would you be as excited for a Tron 3?

Review: Tron: Legacy
by Tom Fronczak

Tron: Legacy is a hard movie to review overall. If I could review it in pieces then it would be easy to say the first third is amazing, the middle is okay, and the last third is bad. The characters that are actually used are good, but their interactions rarely fit the current mood.

It's like the movie mapped out all its concepts well but the sum of its parts is actually less impressive than its foundation's static shards. Kind of like a jigsaw puzzle with spectacular looking pieces, but none of them ever fit together with any other pieces so it's hard to appreciate it in the end. The result is enjoying the ride it takes you on, but after leaving the theater the truth starts to sink in: the movie actually wasn't that great.
