As some of you maybe aware there is a sequel on it’s way to the 1982 movie “Tron”. Well it looks like the marketing for the film has now begun with these really neat arcade tokens for Flynn’s arcade (featured in the original Tron).
Just realised how long it’s been since I’ve watched the original, must change that!
UPDATE: Here are a couple of new viral sites promoting Tron:Legacy (which is supposedly the final name for the film, after they have changed it a bunch of times): Flynn Lives and Home of Tron. From Home of Tron they are showing a Space Paranoids arcade cabinet – which was never shown very well in the movie and it didn’t look quite like this. This leads me to wonder now – is there a chance that we could actually see Disney make a real Space Paranoids game and cabinet where you could find this at certain arcades out there? If so, I wonder how you could possibly sign up for that, I’d love to have a Space Paranoids cabinet at my arcade and do my little part to hype the Tron movie. 😉 – Shaggy
And for an extra blurb, AICN has some shots of the concept art shown at Comic-Con. It looks really good so far.
Wow – this gives me some hope that there will be some arcade stuff int he new film. I have heard that parts of it happen in the 80’s still so I guess it would fit there but man these tokens are pretty cool.
