DAFT PUNK IS DOING THE SOUNDTRACK FOR THIS.
Nice, shitty music for a shit movie.
Technically, it's not really Daft Punk per se...Thomas Bangalter is doing the soundtrack on his own and it's being billed as Daft Punk. This thrills me not so much because I really like Daft Punk (I kind of don't) but because it's rare these days to see a movie get an artist whose actually a REAL electronic music artist to do a primarily electronic score.
Thomas Bangalter's previous score for a film called Irreversible was pretty crappy. I'm predicting this score will be better, but probably well within the realm of Hollywood movie music cliche. If they wanted someone more 'real', they should have went with Richard D. James or Wendy Carlos (or both together) - but those names don't sell tickets.
Whatever it sounds like I'll be humming the original theme
I'm assuming somewhere early on, when this was known as Tron 2.0 back in late 90s before the entire project was scrapped and turned into the video game, Carlos was probably approached to work on it but likely turned it down. She has never made an official statement about it (which is rare given her usually candid, open nature about everything she's working on), but I would assume the decades long legal mess she had trying to get back her original Tron masters might have left a bad taste in her mouth with Disney. Also, she hasn't really done a commission in years upon years.

This looks beyond awful.
I will totally pay to see this.
Tron was good because it had Syd Mead in the art department, the writers actually knew something about computers and it had ground breaking visual effects. I'm skeptical that this movie has any of that. Of course it doesn't matter, the studio knows I'll go see it anyway, but maybe only after it hits the dollar theater.
I haven't seen all of it, but it seems kind of entertaining. When it came out, probably in a "Whoa! Cutting edge computer graphics!" way though in retrospect I enjoyed it as a "Whoa! Early computer graphics!" history lesson.
TRON was good because we were like 8 when we saw it
Funny, because there's actually a bunch of people from the original working on this one. Certainly more than you would ever see in most of today's "edgy" updates of old cult classic movies.

>Tron was good
No, Tron was campy trash with bad acting that had the fortune of having a unique visual style and coming out at just the right time. Which is exactly why I'm excited for a sequel.
I'm sure this will be stupid, but five for the babe on the couch. Anyone know her? She's been asking about me, hasn't she?
Okay, I'll go to see this in a 3D theatre. I hope it's not horrible.
Man, fuck all of you.
There are going to be light cycles and bits and lasers and funky virtual games of discus and al jalai.
This is going to be awesome even if it sucks.
Looks like a bad matrix clone.
Probably good in 3D though
Man The Matrix was a bad Tron clone get your facts straight yoyo1
killscreen coming up!
Dupe, but who fucking cares this looks awesome. FUCK THA HATAZ.
