s we draw closer and closer to the release date of the new Tron sequel, these previews keep revealing more and more details about just how epic this movie promises to be, especially with this new Tron trailer that was recently released at this year’s current Comic-Con. I don’t want to say that I’m not anticipating a masterpiece, because honestly, I am. To be on the safe side though, I’m trying to reserve getting my hopes up before I actually see the movie in its entirety. I will say, however, the level of detail and CG involved in this movie is stunning to say the least. Hopefully I’ll be able to withhold excitement to avoid standing in line for a ticket on the day of the release (December 17th 2010).

    I dunno. The young Flynn/Clu animation looks ridiculous. We’ll see.

      That’s interesting. In comparison to what exactly? If you’re comparing it to the originally young Jeff Bridges, I dunno, I think they did a pretty fantastic job. Especially when you consider this technology is still fairly new, and didn’t exist when the 1st Tron was produced. Additionally, you have to take into consideration the level animosity people tend to develop whenever it involves animation pertaining to the uncanny valley. I definitely believe that over time, it’s going to become more and more difficult to be able to discern between real actors and rendered ones.

    Soo, I didnt even know that the young Jeff Bridges was digitally recreated when I first saw the previews. It didnt cross my mind to even wonder how he had gotten so young all of a sudden. I didnt even notice.

    I think that only actually knowing that the effect is digital would cause the viewer to try to pick it apart and notice any inconsistencies, which are few. The effect is extremely well done, and ironic, as other writers have pointed out, that the original Tron movie dealt with themes of digitizing characters and putting them into the computer. Now, decades later, to create the sequel, the movie makers have actually digitally recreated characters and put them into the computer!!!! WOAH!!!!!!!!

    I’m not going to wax intellectually about this but over analyzing is futile. It’s going to be impressive at the very least.

      Tim,

      Agreed. That’s one thing that tends to bother me regarding the public’s reaction to movies that are CG. Instead of appreciating it for face value, and the storyline, etc… people tend to pick it apart and try and find the flaws. If you look at anything under a microscope, you’re going to find the flaws. Ironically enough, (and golden ratio aside) it’s usually the flaws that make things beautiful, and unique. :)
