New Tron: Legacy trailer delivers (with video)

Despite it's dated graphics, the original Tron is still one of the more beloved nerd films of all time. When Disney announced they would be making a sequel, there were some people questioning whether they could pull it off. It's pretty obvious by the most recent trailer that they can.

The new trailer for Tron: Legacy breaks down the plot nicely. It looks like Flynn (Jeff Bridges) gets sucked back into the computer world and abandons his son (Garrett Hedlund), only to have his son grow up and follow his father into the virtual landscape. Somehow, this incredibly lucky computer has a digital Olivia Wilde and a cool looking young version of Flynn.

The visuals look incredible, a vast improvement over the innovative but dated original. The soundtrack sounds an awful lot like Inception's, but maybe it's just me.

Overall, this trailer proves why this movie is at the top of my most anticipated list.

Check out the trailer below, and let me know what you think. Tron: Legacy opens December 17.
