Tokyo International Film Festival to Screen “Nearly 30 Minutes” of TRON: LEGACY

     September 9, 2010

It’s times like these I wish I lived in Tokyo.  Sure, I’d be woefully inept in most things pertaining to culture and language.  On the bright side, though, I’d get to see a large chunk of footage from Tron: Legacy almost two months ahead of its release.  That’s because [per Variety] Disney will be unveiling “nearly 30 minutes” of footage from the film at the upcoming 23rd Tokyo International Film Festival.  For those of you who are a little closer to the action, the festival begins Saturday, October 23rd and runs through Sunday, October 31st.  The Tron: Legacy footage will be unveiled on opening night.

During last year’s festival, Fox provided a similar unveiling of Avatar which reportedly worked out in their favor as the film grossed around $180 million in the Japan box office.  While Disney would undoubtedly welcome that type of international success, unlike Avatar, Tron: Legacy will only be opening to 3D screens in Japan.  Tron: Legacy opens in 3D on December 17th.
