About "TRON: Legacy"
"TRON: Legacy" is a 3D action-packed adventure set in a digital world unlike anything captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Oscar(r) and Golden Globe(r) winner Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world's leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the abandoned Flynn's Arcade-that could have only come from his father-he finds himself pulled into a world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-or-death journey across a visually stunning universe-created by Kevin Himself-which has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons and landscapes, and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape. Presented in Disney Digital 3D(tm) and scored by Grammy Award(r)-winning electronic music duo Daft Punk, "TRON: Legacy" hits theaters on December 17, 2010.
