129w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared a video clip today of the Tron: Legacy PlayStation 3 premiere in London.
To quote: Few films evoked the spirit of arcade gaming like the original Tron movie back in the 80s and its sequel, Tron: Legacy, is looking to capture the imaginations of 21st Century gamers with lavish special effects, fast-paced action and some of the best use of stereoscopic 3D I've seen.
Last night I attended the UK premiere in London and managed to grab a couple of pictures on my mobile phone (sorry about the quality). The first is outside the cinema and the second is inside, as the director and the cast spoke to the audience.
I enjoyed it, especially how the 3D effect ramped up when you're in the 'Tron' world; a stellar soundtrack from Daft Punk; a surprise appearance from on of my favourite actors, Michael Sheen; and the 'digital de-aging' of Jeff Bridges, showing how spookily real CG face animation has become.
The film goes out to cinemas on general release on 17 December and the game, Tron: Evolution, was released on PlayStation 3 last week.
