TRON: Legacy

Directed by Joseph Kosinski

With Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde

Opens 12.17

A 3-D sequel to the 1982 film beloved by techno-nerds everywhere. Jeff Bridges returns as computer genius Kevin Flynn, who slipped inside a computer in the original; he kept visiting that world, we find out, and eventually got stuck there. Now his grown son (Garrett Hedlund) wanders in to find his long-missing father, only to be confronted by two Jeff Bridgeses (one a digital re-creation of the actor in his '80s youth). Keeping with TRON tradition, it's visually arresting despite being fairly ridiculous.
