Kotaku takes us into a sneak peak event of Tron Legacy in 3D. Now before you get all excited it was just a 2 minute trailer in 3D. Here is just an excerpt from the article. If you want to learn more click the link below.
The trailer—well, portions of it anyway—were in IMAX 3D, as immediately evidenced by the Walt Disney Pictures logo, which transformed into a bluish, scanlined version for authentic video game effect. The trailer opens with Sam, the son of Jeff Bridges’ character Kevin Flynn from the first Tron, receiving word from his father’s old friend Alan Bradley (Bruce Boxleitner) that he believes his father may still be alive—offering no theories that Flynn is trapped within a computer program.
His evidence? A phone call from the old Flynn’s Arcade, where son Sam travels—in extreme, reckless youth motorcycling fashion that should translate well to piloting a lightcycle—to seek out his father. After poking around the dusty abandoned arcade, full of still-functioning arcade cabinets, Sam stumbles upon the digitizer that sent the original Flynn into the virtual world where Programs fight for survival in familiar Tron arcade games.
The following sequences were all quick cuts, some of them in dazzling 3D, including a stunning shot of the massive bipedal Recognizers, looking far more detailed, and more than one Program arming himself with a deadly disc, ready to throw at another Program. Along the way, brief looks at actors Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund in form-fitting illuminated outfits flashed across the screen, as did two Matrix-looking potential bad guys, one fierce looking female and one Space Oddity era David Bowie lookalike playing a little digital air guitar.
The trailer fake-ended with a voiced over interaction between father Flynn and son. “Long time,” Sam says. “You have no idea,” says Flynn. Then it kicked into a lightcycle race, the trailer ending with an explosion and a “Woah…” from Sam as a lightcyclist.
The design of the characters, costumes, vehicles—like the trademark lightcycle—all looked fantastic, including the surprisingly believable looking younger version of Jeff Bridges’ Clu decked out in yellow, in contrast to his currently aged Flynn. We’ll be seeing two versions of Bridges, Clu and Flynn, playing off each other, the film’s director said, as teased in previous Tron Legacy trailers.
