On December 17, 2010, "Tron Legacy," the sequel to one of the most beloved cult films of the modern era will jet onto the big screen.
On December 17, 2010, Disney will release "Tron Legacy," the long-awaited sequel to the cult hit 1982 film "Tron," starring Jeff Bridges.
Disney has just put out a few pictures related to the new film, including marketing material like the film's poster image, and this stunning photo of the bike ridden by Bridge's character from the original film, Kevin Flynn.
According to Disney, the new movie "is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that's unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Bridges), looks into his father's disappearance and finds himself pulled into the digital world of Tron, where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin's loyal confidant Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey of escape across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous."
