The full movie trailer for Tron Legacy is out, but rather underwhelming. It doesn’t reveal much more than what you expected from Tron: light cycles and people in glow suits. Even as eye-candy, it doesn’t look like a huge leap from the original Tron, and didn’t drum up much excitement. A peculiar thing happened. Before the 3D presentation of Alice In Wonderland, I was treated to 3D trailers of upcoming 3D releases, one of which was Tron Legacy and now I’m eagerly anticipating the film.
The trailer starts in 2D, which irked me and will probably irk you because full, 3D trailers were shown before it, prepping you to expect it in 3D. But it’s carefully calculated to be purposely in 2D because once the young man steps into the Tron world, the 3D comes into full effect, popping out at you. It’s stunning. Despite the darkness punctuated by glowing lines, the sense of depth was incredible. What looked generic in the 2D trailer, such as the shots of characters posing, and light-cycling, literally took on a whole new dimension. It felt very immersive, like you were stepping into Tron, making it one of the best examples of stereographic 3D.
Tron Legacy comes out in December and I can’t wait!
