TRON - Daft Punk gets cinematic

Happy TRON day! Yes, today is the official nationwide US release of the long-aniticiapted Disney film, Tron: Legacy.

There are a few reasons why we CAN'T WAIT to see this film:

1. It's in 3D! Anything in 3D automatically makes it a mandatory trip to the theaters.
2. It's futuristic sci-fi. One of the best genres for fiction films by far.
3. It stars Jeff Bridges. You know - the Dude! He rocks!

And of course, last but not least - Daft Punk has composed the score for the film.

This is not Daft Punk's first time working in the movies. We love their film Interstella 5555, where the French electronic duo paired up with Japanese animators to release a feature length anime film set to Daft Punk music. After that came Electroma, a story about 2 robots on the quest to become human, which the duo starred in and directed, but did not compose music for.

And that brings us to Tron:Legacy. There has been so much buzz about this film and about this score...will it live up to the hype? We think so. Want a sneak preview? Check out this music video from the movie for the Daft Punk song Derezzed.
