Trailer For Tron 2 Reboots Bad 80s Flashbacks With New Lightcycles

A few nuggets of automotive goodness have already seeped out of the nerdry that is this week's Comic-Con, but nothing is getting us excited more than this quick peek at some in-movie footage of the trailer from the new Tron 2 movie (alternately called Tr2n or Tron 2.0). While it's a grainy and distant bootleg movie — the footage still looks simply stunning. The lightcycles? They look epic. Jeff Bridges? We'll agree with our gadget-obsessed brother site when they say he looks like some badass version of "The Dude." We're totally sold on this one. Let the lightcyclegasm begin.

ALRIGHT! Trons back. Now we're talking. This is my world.

I remember back in the early 80's, we got our first VCR. It was a top loading VHS with mechanical controls.. i.e. The play pause stop rew ff etc. worked just like an old cassette tape recorder. To press play, I had to grab the play lever with both hands and pull down with all the strength a six year old could muster. No master control program to do it for you, just kinetic energy. Tron was the very first movie we played on that VCR.
