Original TRON Trailer Recut for 2010

It's easy to lose sight of how ridiculous our world has become when you're living in it. But when you see the original TRON's reimagined trailer for 2010, all our motifs become shamefully obvious.


Of course, in the interest of fairness, I can't say that the authentic, original TRON trailer was all that much better (beyond its title reveal finish). Note the strangely detailed focus on the first act's setup of the plot—not so much in time as specificity:

And, just for good measure, let's just toss in the TRON Legacy trailer. It's wonderful, but probably makes even less sense than the original TRON trailer if you haven't seen the movie.

Then again, I'm not sure TRON ever made so much sense to begin with. [CrunchGear]

It doesn't NEED to make sense...think about it:

Computers, check

Cool motorcycles that leave huge beamy/walls of light behind them? check

Game of frisbee to the death? Check

Do you actually need anything more than that? Quite frankly, this movie could have no script, words, or anything else - as long as those few special effects scenes are left in...not only will all the geeks of the world go to see it, but we'll also buy the video game, action figures, graphic novel, and breakfast cereal.
