Since we’re all pretty much living Tron these days, chasing computer-generated squirrels and pigeons and shit all over the place, it seemed like it might be a good time to revisit that most iconic of life-in-a-computer pastimes: the Light Cycle battle. Could something like this exist in the real world, somehow? I…
Going to a Disney theme park is all about being transported to the world of your favorite movies. From classic animation to a galaxy far, far away, it’s what Disney does best and at their newest park, Disney is taking attendees to the Grid. And you check it out right now.
Quotes are the currency by which we pay respect to our favorite movies. If you can spout off a one-liner from a movie, odds are it has a special place in your heart, and that belief drives an awesome looking new art show in Los Angeles this weekend.
Science fiction has rocked cinemas for a century, and the genre has produced many undisputed classics during that time. But which movies are essential viewing for anyone interested in the genre? We broke down the 50 must-watch science fiction films.
These days, it seems like Disney owns every major property out there. And while that’s not true, almost all of them will be on display at the company’s newest theme park, Disney Shanghai Resort. Set to open in 2016, it will have new attractions based on Star Wars, Marvel, TronN and Pirates of the Caribbean.
The A.V. Club has unearthed this summer movie preview piece from Entertainment Tonight. In addition to containing some fairly absurd descriptions of classics, it also makes a pretty strong case for 1982 being the best year for science fiction film.
Disney has officially powered down Tron 3. Last night, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that the company has decided to halt preparations for the third film in the cyberpunk franchise. The move comes just a week after Tomorrowland pulled in a disappointing Memorial Day weekend box office.
If you’ve always had your heart set on a TRON Lightcycle — a working one, not a matchbox toy — you’d better start saving. The going rate (as much as there is a going rate for one-off movie-replica collectibles) is $77,000.
We're all still pretty baffled about the existence of Tron 3, but it sounds like they're getting the band back together. Olivia Wilde, Garrett Hedlund will join director Joseph Kosinski yet again to make another Tron movie.
TRON: Legacy was maybe not the best film ever, but ever since it’s 2010 release, it’s spawned an entire genre of TRON-esque design — i.e. dark, glossy objects with light-up highlights. And nothing is more synonymous with TRONIism than the electric motorcycle from the film — which you can now have a chance to own.
Greeting or salutations! You can't have both. You can, however, learn the biggest potential shocker of the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, why Tron is a miracle, and everything you could ever possibly need to know about dead blue Jedi. It's a bargain either way!
What has director Joseph Kosinski been up to since wrapping up Oblivion? Well, it sounds like he's been getting Tron 3, the sequel to Tron: Legacy, ready to film. Yes, folks, it looks like we're getting another trip to the neon-lit Grid.
If this video doesn't get you going, you're dead inside and we can't be friends. Florian Renner made this short animation, Retrowave, as an ode to the style of the 1980's. It basically combines the worlds of Back to the Future and Tron by turning the DeLorean into a Light Cycle on The Grid.
Okay, this is pretty damn amazing. Flickr User Joel Baker built the facade for Flynn's Arcade from Tron in 2012, but recently returned to his lego creation to fully flesh out the interior, turning it into a wonderfully detailed arcade for his Lego minifigures. Even the sign lights up!
Second-year students at the Animation Workshop in Denmark were tasked with creating 30-second CG trailers inspired by classic movies. The group that was assigned Alien decided not to do a straight tribute, but instead mixed a bit of Jules Verne in with their scifi horror.
There was something undeniably awesome about Disney in the early 1980s. The company was expanding its theme parks in Flordia with EPCOT, a shrine to technological innovation. Meanwhile, a bunch of young kids sort of got left unattended at the studio. The result? Movies like Tron.
So apparently some kind of Star Wars trailer dropped last week? I live in the future, so I'm not sure, but since I could do two whole PAs just on The Force Awakens questions, I feel pretty good about making the assumption. But don't worry, we still have time for Marvel movies, DC TV, Evangelion, and, of course,…
Forget about all the company's work on its incredibly durable Gorilla Glass. No one's going to care if their smartphone's screen gets scratched when Corning's other major innovation hits consumers. Because when their device is covered in Fibrance, a fiber-optic thread-like material that glows in any color and looks…
Whether or not you liked Tron: Legacy, you can't deny that it served up some tasty eye candy. So, rejoice, my fellow programs and data junkies — this online version of the awesome Encom boardroom projection screen is configured to visualize live updates from Github and Wikipedia, with more streams to come.
The Oculus Rift hasn't even made it out of beta testing and it's already changing the world for the better—at least for one dedicated developer. He's integrated one into an incredible, full-scale Tron: Legacy light cycle replica. Strap on a headset and hop aboard, we're going racing.
