'Tron Legacy' Gets Previewed at Secret Screening

The sneak peek sees Sam Flynn getting a clue about his missing dad, shares a glimpse of shots from the computer world and also gives a look at some other characters.
While a new trailer for the long-awaited film "Tron Legacy" will not come out until March 5 prior to "Alice in Wonderland", a number of "Tron" fans were able to see some footage from the film after following some clues to find out where the sneak peek would occur. The Bridge theater in Los Angeles was one of the places where the exclusive screening took place on Saturday, February 27.

Though it said a trailer, the preview seemed to be more like a teaser than a full length trailer. It is opened with a shot of the ENCOM building, the corporation at the center of the first film. Then, Bruce Boxleitner, who reprises his role of Alan Gartner, is telling Garrett Hedlund's Sam Flynn about his missing dad, Jeff Bridges' Kevin Flynn.

Bruce tells Sam that he got a call from the office of Flynn's Arcade, from a phone line that has been disconnected for years. Just before his disappearance in 1989, Flynn came to Alan and told him that he was working on something that would "change everything". Sam then comes to the arcade and, before long, he is in the computer world.

Later, the scene switches to capture a glimpse of light cycles, gladiatorial competitions played with rings instead of discs and Clu which is the upgraded version of the program created by Kevin in the first film. Additionally, the snippet gives a look at some characters including Michael Sheen's Caster as well as Olivia Wilde's Quorra lying seductively on a neon couch. It is then concluded with a shot of a lightcycle race with an explosion.

Serving as the sequel to 1982 "Tron", "Tron Legacy" will follow Sam Flynn as he investigates the disappearance of his father Kevin. Pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years, he manages to find Kevin. Now, he has to join forces with Kevin and Kevin's loyal confidant on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous. This sci-fi is planned to be released in the U.S. on December 17.
