The Legacy of Tron
Science-fiction fans should rejoice. Tron 3 is headed into production and all those who were recently introduced to “the grid” in Tron: Legacy are going to really look forward to the new film.
The original Tron was not exactly a super box office hit when first released stated otempo.com.br . The film was just a little too weird for the average movie goer back in 1982. A $33 million take on a (then massive) $17 million budget was considered a disappointment for Disney. A series of sequels were never made.
Or rather, they weren’t made right away. The science-fiction boon slowed a bit after the release of Return of the Jedi and Tron simply had to contend itself with being a cult film a small number of fans remembered. The arrival of a reboot changed all of that.
Tron was way ahead of its time because the average person was not very familiar with computers in the early 1980’s. Today, the concepts presented in Tron do not seem weird or off the wall. As a result, the franchise can finally reach the audiences it always sought to capture.
