Okay, I’m a big ol’ dork when it comes to TRON. When I was a kid, I told one of my teachers I wanted to be called TRON in class. Needless to say, I was sent home that day with a note for my parents, but I digress. I really did like that movie and still do to this day. So it should come as no surprise, if you’ve been watching what’s been coming out of the Comic Con, that a teaser trailer for TRON 2 (or TR2N, for some reason) was shown. I saw the crappy bootleg copy of the trailer before Disney pitched a bitch and made the online folks take it down, but I’m telling you, this is the next I-can’t-wait-for-this-fucking-movie movie to come out.
Of course, it doesn’t help I was talking with a former reporter here who is very attractive, Chinese and into Sci-Fi stuff and when I mentioned to her how excited I was about a new TRON movie, I got, “What’s TRON?” Yep, sometimes it hits you that you’ve become older than those around you. It hits you like a fucking rubber mallet to the nuts.
Yeah, Flynn as a bad guy! I love it! Bring back Bruce Boxleitner as TRON to save the day! Could be/should be kick ass. I’ve also heard rumor that PIXAR did some work on this as well, which, if it’s true, would kick so much ass.
I’d love to see it, but would be super cautious of it’s ability to satisfy. BTW: I loved the first movie when I was a kid, hated it when I got older, and only love to make fun of it now. It was an achievement in it’s time, but come on; it’s slow and often completely senseless.
