The first TV spot for director Joseph Kosinski’s Tron Legacy has been released and while it’s mostly footage we’ve seen in previous trailers, there is an awesome new shot of five lightcycles! As you can see in the image above, it looks very sweet.
The thing the TV spot does very well is play up the father-son angle of the movie. Of course the thirty seconds are loaded with amazing special effects, but without an emotional center, many moviegoers just won’t care. I think focusing on the relationship between Jeff Bridges and Garrett Hedlund is a very smart way to start the mainstream advertising campaign. Hit the jump to check out the TV spot:
