It’s not part of some design-of-the-day scheme, but in other Olivia Wilde news (she also costars in the film about to be mentioned), kudos to the folks at Disney, who are smartly piggybacking on Jeff Bridges’ no-brainer Oscar nomination for Crazy Heart by pegging the release of a photo from Tron Legacy to today.
Meditative and blue-hued, it doesn’t rank up there with Comic-Con’s Iron Man photo release from a couple years back in terms of sheer pizazz, that’s for sure. But it works in counterbalancing fashion to the sheer volume of effects-intensive promo shots that no doubt await, further down the line. Tron Legacy centers on Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin
Flynn (Bridges), as he looks into his father’s disappearance and finds
himself pulled into a digital world where his dad has been
living for the past 25 years. Together, they embark on a life-and-death journey
of escape across an exceedingly dangerous cyber
universe. The film releases December 17.
