Duck Tron

Anytime there is a film reference that is blatantly apparent and nerdy in advertising I am all ears and eyesballs. Ryactive, a creative agency from San Fransisco, have created a great ad selling Duck Tape which pays tribute to the 1982 film Tron.

Now I have no idea how this has slipped past any other creatives minds, but I believe this is an amazing concept. It also helps when there is a surprise cameo at the end (you don’t have to think about it too hard to guess who it is). Check out the full ad after the jump to behold the awesomeness!

The First Spectacular Tron: Legacy Trailer

The first official trailer for Tron Legacy decided to pop up during this crazy viral marketing campaign. The campaign is much like 42 Entertainment’s marketing for The Dark Knight. This trailer looks amazing and if you weren’t excited for this film before than this will definitely reinforce your opinion towards a positive manner. The cinematography and visual effects are just eye candy. This for sure looks like a great sequel and could even get people out who don’t even know what Tron is, just like what The Dark Knight did for Batman or J.J. Abrams did for Star Trek and make it a little more mainstream. yeh? Maybe. I think people will definitely check it out.

Tron Guy is definitely going to have to rethink his costume.

Check out the trailer and screen caps after the jump:

tronlegacysmall

The Tron Legacy concept footage shown at the San Diego Comic Con has now been added to Flynn Lives and can be viewed RIGHT HERE . You can view it below while it’s still on YouTube until taken down most likely, but the site is reliable. On the site is Hi-Def.

Tron Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Bridges), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

Crappy Tron: Legacy Footage from SDCC

Check this out before it gets torn down from the Interweb. This was shown during San Diego Comic Con ’09. It shows some good action bike scene from the new Tron Sequel, possibly called Tron Legacy. This scene also includes Jeff Bridges from what I can tell.

Flynn’s Arcade – TRON 2 Viral Marketing Begins

Picture 2

So if you went to Comic Con you might have gotten some Flynn’s Arcade tokens. This is just the first step to the viral marketin campaign that is Tron 2. Wellllll this series of events have led people to FlynnLives.com and HomeOfTron.com. If you click on the bouncing spider on the bottom of FL you’ll get a countdown to something unknown obviously. There is also a message that read:

“Meet us at the cul de sac near the corner
of 1st and J when the numbers run out.
You’ll know who we are.”

If my math is correct tomorrow at 11:30 PM you should go to that cul de sac on 1st and J wherever that is and meet some people. Could this be another Dark Knight like campaign? Could be? I love viral marketing thought, but not too sure if I am excited for this movie………

Thanks to Disney, they have revealed a somewhat of a plot synopsis of what TRON will be about when it is remade into whatever it will be. Maybe TRON guy will get a special guest cameo. We could only hope…..
