At New York Comic-Con’s TRON: Evolution panel held yesterday, the standing room only crowd was treated to what has to be some of the most incredible screenshots and video clips to ever grace the video screen. In short, the video game for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 is every bit as beautiful eye candy as the film itself is and there’s small wonder for that as you’ll soon see why.
Walt Disney Studios announced today, October 10, 2010 (“10-10-10”), the kickoff of the official 10-week countdown to the release of “TRON: Legacy,” which opens in theaters December 17, 2010. Every week for the next 10 weeks marks a major milestone in the countdown as The Walt Disney Company rolls out exciting new TRON events, film content, products and announcements in preparation for the worldwide film launch, including:
TRON Night: An IMAX 3D Experience, a special event on October 28, 2010, that will give audiences worldwide the first opportunity to step onto the Grid and into the cutting-edge, 3D world of Walt Disney Pictures’ high-tech adventure “TRON: Legacy,” during an exciting 20-plus-minute sneak peek of the highly anticipated film, sponsored by ASUS Computer International.
I was invited to a press event late this afternoon in New York City at which Walt Disney Studios screened Tangled in its semi-current unfinished format as well as a 20+ minute compilation of various scenes from TRON: Legacy, not unlike those recently held in Burbank. The event was hosted by Studios production head Sean Bailey who opened the presentation by presenting a 30 second tv spot for Secretariat, reminding us all that the movie opens on Friday.
Threadless has announced a new collaboration with Disney Consumer Products, in its popular “Threadless Loves…” design challenge series. As Threadless celebrates its tenth anniversary as the crowdsourcing poster child, it’s evolving from a t-shirt design shop and giving its online community of artists more platforms to show off their talent. From t-shirts and hoodies, to flip flops, iPhone cases and even Dell laptop designs, Threadless is growing up and other companies are taking note — including one of the most well-known brands in the universe — Disney.
Walt Disney Studios has provided us with this gallery of concept art for TRON: Legacy which features costumes for several characters including Sam Flynn, Quorra and Rinzler, as well as a Siren and Lead Guard from the Game Grid. Also included are some images from the environment as well as designs of multiple iterations/generations of the Light Cycle plus an additional vehicle.
