Tron poster by markwelser Tron poster by markwelser
Most folks who know me already know that I consider Tron to be my favorite movie. Let's not take that to mean that I think it's the best movie ever made--it isn't--but golly, do I love the living hell out of it.

While getting these horror movie posters ready for the horror show, I fun design came to me for Tron so I interrupted my schedule to put this together.

Sometimes, what I do for these designs is try to break the movie down into one sentence and then come up with a design that gets that point across. In this case it was "a guy gets stuck in a computer".

I love how it looks like the artwork on an Atari cartridge! Awesome. Tron is one of my all-time favourite movies, too.

Thanks! The whole Atari thing was basically an accident, but it sure worked out in my favor! It's always great to find more folks who dig TRON as much as I do.

Absolutely! I've been excited ever since it was announced they were going to make one. My friends all know how much I love TRON so if it sucks, I'll never hear the end of it. As soon as the teaser trailer was shown at comicon, I was pretty sure it was all going to be okay. So far, everything I've seen looks great. Cannot wait.

My brother is a huge TRON fan (he even has the Arcade game in his living room) and he has a countdown to when it comes out. Me, I'm very much looking forward to it. After almost 30 years, I have very high exceptions for it :)

Your brother sounds awesome. I'm trying not to have my expectations too high. I sure WANT it to be great, but most movies recently haven't been all that impressive so I'm avoiding setting myself up for disappointment. At first, I was sad they didn't have the dorky circuit costumes from the original, but I eventually got over it.

When I first saw the teaser, I missed the old costumes too. I guess with the upgrades "Users" have given computers, the computer world would have changed too.
Are you by any chance a fan of "The Black Hole" too?

I remember really liking the Black Hole when I was younger but couldn't quite remember a whole lot about it other than those robots. A few years ago I picked it up on DVD and really liked it, but I haven't really given it another watch since then.

I watch is a few times a year. The book had a better ending (I can spoiler it if you'd like). The remake is being done by the same team doing Tron Legacy.
