Tron To Tide You Over

You know there’s going to be a Tron 3, right?  Sure, there’s been no official announcement (yet), but the signs are there, the tea leaves have been read, and the entrails have been interpreted.

Correctly, I assume.

Until that news comes, here’s a little news on “Tron: Uprising,” the new Grid-based series from Disney XD, courtesy of Hero Complex.

And for all the doubters out there, look at the casting of the series:  Elijah Wood, Bruce Boxleitner, music by Daft Punk…production design by Daniel Simon, written by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.

Yeah, Disney’s clearly investing some serious resources (read: lots of money) IN A CARTOON for there to be no chance whatsoever to make the leap back to feature films.

Think of “Tron: Uprising” as the beginning of a campaign, a puzzle piece,  filling in the space right before “Tron: Legacy.”

When we have the a more complete picture of what’s been going on on The Grid, THAT’S when we will start to hear about the sequel.

Then again, that’s just me, reading the bones as I see ‘um

‘Resident Evil 5: Retribution’ Teaser Trailer

Here’s the trailer for the latest film in the Resident Evil Saga, (sorta) based on the Capcom videogame.  This is not something that I would pay to see, because I have seen the prior entry, and don’t quite see the point of these films any longer.

While parts on an ongoing series, they don’t feel like it, despite having the continuity of casting.  By way of example, “Star Wars,” “The Empire Strikes Back,” and “Return of the Jedi” feel like individual entries of a greater whole.

Then there’s the music that accompanies the teaser midway, Daft Punk’s “The Game Has Changed,” from “Tron: Legacy,” which bothers me for entirely different reasons.
