By Unkiedev The nineties comic book boom (and subsequent crash) was based on two factors that are still cavorting through the forest of comics today. One is the Unicorn of variant covers, the other is the lion of investor speculation. See how nimbly they prance! The resale of comic books was viewed as a big [...]
I’ll cool it with the TRON posts soon. Promise. These gorgeous prints from Mondo went on sale today, but were sold out in mere minutes. FP still has some stock left on what’s sure to be a hot-ticket item this weekend- Deluxe Identity Discs. Make your own TRON paraphernalia on the cheap with these papercraft [...]
By Christopher Troy Allow, for a minute, a small rant. I’m a fairly big Scott Pilgrim fan. Like read all the books, own the blu-ray and game, big fan. I was really excited to hear we were getting some merch for the series, but man, Mezco certainly dropped the ball on the license. Example: This [...]
It’s no secret that not since The Fellowship of the Ring have I looked forward to a movie as much as I do TRON Legacy. Just seven days to go! If you find yourself needing a fix in that time I suggest you pick up a copy of the TRON The Betrayal TP. Yes, I’m [...]
Unca Grant as one angry, frilly-shirted badass vs. My Chemical Romance Redemption: The sequel to one of the most ambitious SF cinema flops of all time is expected to become one of the biggest films of all time. What’s happening to my special purpose? Action Flick Chick as The Baroness NYCC Vanity: Jeff Ayers on [...]
Olivia Wilde’s character, Quorra… traversing the Grid in heels. In other TRON Legacy news I picked up a neat-o Identity Disc slash frisbee at the shop yesterday. Looks great, flies like poop… but who cares about functionality when you’ve got something so badass (and relatively cheap!) in your eager paws. END OF LINE.
Been a helluva day but I’m dogged and relentless (LET ME AT ‘EM!). END OF LINE.
…In which we catch up with one of our favorite subjects. Actor Peter Jurasik, who played a compound interest program named Crom in the original film, showed up in an article in the Star News (North Carolina) over the weekend chatting about his experience while shooting the original classic film. “Steve Lisberger who created it, [...]
New TRON Legacy footage premiered at Comic-Con this morning!!! Pretty rad, huh? More footage was reportedly shown at the panel, but this represents what’s officially been released to the web. It’s enough, though, as there’s plenty for any fan’s tongue to wag at. Recognizers, Identity Disc battles, a rather nifty de-res shot, a de-aged Bridges [...]
It’s been a bit since The Daily Planet presented any news bytes on its most anticipated movie of 2010, so let’s check in and see what’s shaking! Empire Magazine’s new issue features, among other geeky pursuits, a TRON piece and two covers featuring Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedland) on a Light Cycle… The cover story has [...]
South Park, a program which I ashamedly admit I’ve only had a modest interest in since its debut despite a circle of friends who swear by its perpetual gut-busting charms, recently aired a spot-on episode titled “You Have 0 Friends” equating the ubiquitous behemoth Facebook to Tron’s Master Control Program. Stan is digitized a la [...]
Coming soon: Battlestar Galactica MMO. Slated to be a browser-based space strategy game, offered exclusively on syfy.com for its first 30 days, this is being developed by obscure (and relatively unproven) Norwegian developer Artplant- which leads one to assume their app (or bid) wowed the Bigs behind such a high-profile and expensive license. Comic Book [...]
Well, sir, there’s nothing on Earth Like a genuine, Bonafide, Electrified, Six-car Tronorail! Greetings, Programs! Personally, it’s been a tough week, so please forgive me my second Tron Legacy related post in four days. Gotta go with what brought a smile to my face today. First, the new teaser trailer for the film released earlier [...]
Jeff Bridges, El Duderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing, has finally won an Oscar, man. Between you and me The Dude should have been given a lifetime achievment award years ago, and presented multiple statues for “The Fabulous Baker Boys,” “Fearless,” and one of the great fantasy films of all time, “The [...]
Could this be an official track from the French duo’s Tron Legacy score? Internet scuttlebutt says so. Very much in line with Wendy Carlos’ iconic music for the first film, with some signature Daft Punk touches, sprinkled with a hint of Vangelis. What a recipe!!! I had to change my pants around 03:50.
