Looking at the new Tron: Legacy is like a real-life version of Back the Future.
You have a vision conceived in 1982, but a hot starlet, Olivia Wilde, who wasn't conceived until one year later. You have funky, blacklight-ready costumes but awesome 3-D technology. You've got a virtual Hollywood newbie in Garrett Hedlund and a Hollywood legacy and newly-crowned Oscar winner in Jeff Bridges.
For the most part, the contradictions should end there.
This Tron still appears to be a fan-geek free-for-all, packed with action and even disc battles. And, of course, Wilde's costume is nice and form-fitting. Schwing!
We'll be able to see the whole thing in theaters on Dec. 17, 2010.
