Movies

TRON: Legacy

This is a super-buzzy sequel, although I just haven’t gotten psyched about it.  I think it helps if you never saw the original or don’t remember it…Disney may have been wise not to put the original out again on video before this release.  That’s not to say that people don’t like the original, or that it wasn’t worthwhile.  However, it didn’t do that well at the box office, and I think it’s more attractive as an idea (“the first videogame movie”) than a reality.  I do think it will have a huge opening…I could see it hitting 75m dogro (domestic gross).   Maintaining it, though?
