  • TRON controllers will be available for purchase

    Rejoice user! Devin won’t be keeling over from auto-erotic asphyxiation after all. The TRON controllers that he saw at E3 and threatened to hold his breath over? Well, they are going to be for sale. To be honest, I haven’t considered replacing my stock Xbox 360 controllers until this point, but now I’m afraid I have no choice. Read More

  • The quietest Tron toy video on the Internet

    Our wee friend Peter Ha got to play with some new Tron gear including the slowest, quietest light bike you’ll ever have the chance to see. Here it is in all its poky glory. Read More

  • Make them sell these TRON-themed controllers or I'll hold my breath until I die


    Now, I don’t want to pretend I’m the biggest TRON fan ever. I know that guy, and I’m not jealous. But even if I’d never heard of TRON or TR2N, I’d be leaving dirty finger-marks all over these display-cases just like everybody else. Because these are some sexy-ass controllers. Read More

  • Don't let Tron guy have all the fun – get this glowing Tron shirt

    Do you sleep with a full-sized body pillow shaped like Jeff Bridges? Do you have disc wheels on your bike? Do you dream of electric sheep? You might want this shirt. Read More

  • A TRON trailer for 2010

    Tron Legacy comes out right before Christmas this year, but it’s probably best if you see the first movie before the sequel. This trailer should get you in the mood. It did it for me. Oh, and FYI, Tron is supposed to be released on Blu-ray in November, but there quality high-def digital copies lurking around torrent sites and usernets thanks to HDNet broadcasting the movie in high-def.

  • Disney turns its Monorail into huge Tron light cycles

    Tron Legacy is nerds wet dream come true. The movie will hopefully invoke the same sort of futuristic imagination as the original. You’ve watched the trailer, right? Well, anyway, to gear up for the premiere, Disney has skin a couple of its monorails to look like the light cycles. Kind of meta future meets future moment, eh? Read More

  • Did you know there was a Last Starfighter video game?

    I don’t know how I missed this a few years ago but did you know there was a fully-featured Last Starfighter videogame made for a documentary on the film. With all this talk of Tron I wanted to check out the other major CG-infused release from my childhood and after watching it (Don’t. You will be disappointed. It’s not as good as you remember it.) I found this site from… Read More

  • Tron Legacy trailer hits the web in high quality

    We’ve shown you the new Tron trailer 48 hours ago in bootleg quality, but you can forget that one now and rather watch this high-quality version. Judging from these 2.30 minutes, we’re in for something cool. Read More

  • A new Tron Legacy trailer for your edification

    DWalk sent us in a tip about a new trailer for Tron. It’s been pretty hard to track down but I think we caught it in the wild. It’s nigh on unwatchable, but any artifact from a potentially horrible (but also potentially great (see Transformers v. Dark Knight)) movie that will destroy our childhood memories is a valuable one, right? Read More

  • Tron Legacy trailer: Mmmm, Tron-ny

    Here you are, men: Tron Legacy. In trailer form. Read More

  • Video: Cheech & Chong "Tron for it"

    If you haven’t been watching Mean Mag’s Cinemash series then you’re doing it wrong. Cheech and Chong + Tron = Amazing. Kind of NSFW and don’t watch with the kids. Thanks for reminding me about this, KLash! Read More

  • Disney reveals plot and title for new Tron movie

    A sequel for cult movie Tron was rumored to be in preparation for years now, and today Walt Disney Pictures has finally revealed a few tidbits of information about the reboot of the “virtual reality film”. It will simply be called Tron (and not Tron 2, Tron 2.0 or “Tr2n”) and we’ll be able to see some footage very soon. Disney said they will show a 3D clip from… Read More

  • Looks like Daft Punk will compose the new Tron movie's soundtrack

    So apparently there’s going to be a sequel to Tron, and it’s going to be called TR2N. Good news, right? Sure, okay. But even better news—Daft Punk will compose the soundtrack. Read More

  • Need more Pogue in your life? The Pogue-o-matic should fix that


    If you’ve ever wanted to have a tiny David Pogue on your desktop, advising you on the implications of sensor size or carrier choice, now is your chance. Somewhat less cute than a desktop pet but considerably more knowledgeable, Pogue comes to you in living color and motion via this little tool at the NYT website. If it works for you, that is — I can’t seem to make the… Read More

  • Tron Guy is a PC

    I could have done without the ‘behind the scenes’ type photos of Jay Maynard and his junk, but his impression of everyone’s initial reaction to his costume makes up for it. What a nerd. :) The description from the YouTube page is as follows: Without the networks and communities created by the PC, the world might never have even heard of the “Tron Guy” or… Read More

  • Tron actually happened

    This is a fantastic story. You remember how in Tron, the players force a computer light cycle into a wall, then escape through the hole to get at the rest of the system? Well, this guy recreated that event inadvertently with his own IIGS version of Tron. I don’t know if any of you will find this funny, but I can’t spoil the surprise. This is a seriously good story.

  • Video: Tron's lightcycle game gets sweded, and it's sweet

    I enjoyed Be Kind Rewind for the most part but thought the editing was a little messy, making for a sloppy ending. But by far the best part was the “sweded” films. I could watch a movie of nothing but films sweded by Mos Def and Jack Black and be a happy, happy boy. Take, for example, this amazingly well pulled off sweded version of the lightcycle scene in Tron. The executed one of… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Vintage Tron action figures, on eBay at a steal!

    [photopress:35a1_1.JPG,full,center] Greetings, programs! Tron 2.0 is on the way, this much is fact, and in doing research about a movie she’s never seen (Tron, the original) my friend Kira Yahtzee came across this group of ten Tron action figures from the 80s, complete with zip-powered Tron cycle for auction on eBay, and they’re totally affordable. Happy bidding, and… Read More

  • Discs of Tron gets dated for XBLA

    It’s been about 10 months since we first told you that “Tron” would be coming to XBLA and I completely forgot about it as I’m sure most of you have done. Today, Disney announced that Discs of Tron will be available on the 13th of this month. Details of the game can be found here. The forum is now up and running as well. Don’t forget to hit the former link for a… Read More
