Check out the new billboard poster for the much-anticipated Tron: Legacy and featuring it’s sexy star and House actress, Olivia Wilde.
In the sequel to the 80’s classic, Tron, Wilde will be playing a character called Quorra, described as “a warrior computer program who helps Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) and his son Sam (Garrett Hedlund) escape from Tron’s shiny digital real”.
The movie is due to debut in the UK on 26 December 2010, which is a bit of a wait, but since it’s been almost 30 years since the first movie, what’s a few months between friends?
Here’s the official movie synopsis for more information:
“TRON: Legacy” is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-winner Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn’s Arcade—a signal that could only come from his father—he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe—a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape. Presented in Disney Digital 3D™ and scored by Grammy Award®-winning electronic music duo Daft Punk, “TRON: Legacy” hits U.S. theaters on Dec. 17, 2010 in Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D.
I’ve got to say, since Tron was ever so slightly before my time, it’d be nice if the original film got spruced up for theatres before Legacy came out. I wouldn’t mind getting up to speed on the original film before going to see the sequel, and after 30 years, I’d imagine many people are just as rusty on the plot!
Maybe someone can kick an internet campaign off…
