Tron Legacy effects test officially online

The video effects test footage — not a proper teaser trailer — for Tron Legacy that screened at SDCC last year is now officially online, and you can watch it below, or in high definition at FlynnLives.com, and it looks terrific. (Sure, the people — save for old Jeff Bridges — are obviously computer generated, but in a world inside a computer, that works for me.)

Tron Legacy (which was previously known as TR2N or Tron 2.0 or… about a million other names) is targeting a winter 2010 release. Joseph Kosinski is directing the film, which stars Garrett Hedlund, Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett. Here’s the logline (via Coming Soon):

Tron Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Bridges), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

    So I haven't watched the original movie in a long time, but this looks brilliant. I'll have to pop in the DVD tonight and see if I can figure out whats going on here. Tentatively excited, I guess I'd say.

    Intrigued as all get-out!

    I haven't seen the original in about a decade, but doesn't Bridges character actually get out of the virtual world into the real world at the end of the film? I remember that the joke was that he wasn't in for but a few seconds in real-time but in for days in run-time.
