28 of (R)oc(k)tober, the day of the long waited TRON night. I must say first that I did not see the ’82 TRON by Steven Lisberger (director and writer), but I will see it before the full TRON: Legacy.
For the introduction I must say that the name of the director is Joseph Kosinski, and that this is his first movie. Steven Lisberger is still in the picture, as a writer, executive producer, and even actor (apparently nobody knows the name of the character (if he has one)…yet!). And you will also get to see both Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, from Daft Punk, the elecTRONic french band, also unspecified but credited characters.
So, after this short 23 minutes preview, consisting of a number of really intriguing scenes, I can shoot you with these bullets:
- cyber/futuristic (and dystopian) world (cyber clothes, cyber chicks, cyber motorcycles, cyber cars, cyber dropships, probably cyber planes and who knows, maybe some cyber sex 😀 )
- disc fights, much cooler than the old-fashioned laser sabre fights
- epic OST
- quite predictible story (I can already feel a happy ending, and the fact that there will be sequels)
- probably will be considered to be “the second Matrix”.
All in all a must see, if you are a fan of cyberpunk and dystopies.
See you at IMAX! 😛
