Jeff Bridges promises the new “TRON” is just as groundbreaking as the 27-year-old original.
The 59-year-old actor and star of the original film came to Comic Con Thursday to help present early footage from “TRON: Legacy,” due in 2010.
Bridges notes that when “TRON” was released in 1982, the Internet and personal computers didn’t exist. The futuristic tale took viewers to a digitized virtual world, a concept that was decades ahead of its time.
Despite modern moviegoers’ everyday interaction with technology, Bridges says he “can guarantee you’re going to get the same kind of pop with this one. Everything’s going to be super-ized.”
Filmmakers showed some concept sketches and a brief, never-before-seen clip.
