If you aren’t excited for the sequel to “Tron”, you need to watch this concept trailer. About half way through you’re going to be very excited to see the further adventures of Kevin Flynn in late 2010. So to help you make it to the release date, at this year’s Comic-Con I was able to speak with the three leads in “Tron Legacy” – Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde – and the video interview is after the jump. I’ve also provided the synopsis since most of you probably haven’t seen it.
“Tron Legacy” 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 (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.
