Details Leak on Third ‘TRON’ Movie - Softpedia

Posted: 24 Jan 2011 02:11 AM PST

Though Disney is yet to confirm any of these, buzz is building up that fans of "TRON: Legacy" will get a first look at the third film with the DVD of the film, while more details on the script are leaking online.

As fans must already know "Legacy," marketed by Disney as a stand-alone film, is actually a sequel to the 1982 cult-classic "TRON," which sees the creation of The Grid, where Flynn will remain trapped.
Word of a third film first got out before the release of "Legacy" in December last year, with several well placed sources saying Disney had already commissioned a script and was looking at possibilities to avoid conflicting schedules.

Now, several e-zines claim to have it from very reliable sources not only that the third film will be made but also that fans will be given a first look at it with the release of the "Legacy" DVD this April.

Both Ain't It Cool News and Bleeding Cool say their spies are confirming that a teaser trailer of the third "TRON" film will be included on the DVD, with the latter saying it lasts about 2.51 minutes and will run as "Disc Roars."

Furthermore, details on the plot have also started to emerge online, as IGN Movies sums it up.

The good news here would be that Cillian Murphy, who was seen only briefly in the beginning of "Legacy," will get more screentime in the threequel – as a villain, of course.

At the same time, word has it that the third film would take place more in the outside world and not in The Grid, though how that would tie in with the original is yet to be seen.

"There will be a teaser trailer (of sorts) for the threequel on the forthcoming Blu-ray release of Tron: Legacy 3D. Citing someone who worked on the shoot for the home video extra, AICN says there were at least three different scenes filmed before Thanksgiving 2010," IGN reports.

Info leaked on the trailer is also very accurate like, which could mean the teaser is actually real, the e-zine further argues.

"The first scene involves Bruce Boxleitner (as Alan Bradley) and Dan Shor (as Ram), the second sees Quorra (Olivia Wilde) at ENCOM, while the third and sees Cillian Murphy as Dillinger Jr. opposite his dad, played by the first Tron's villain, David Warner! The two apparently reveal that their schemes are under way," IGN says.

Apparently, Jeff Bridges' Flynn also returns to the third film, though in what manner that will be possible given the ending of "Legacy" still remains to be seen.

Movie Scoreboard: 'Blue Valentine,' 'Country Strong' - Detroit Free Press

Posted: 24 Jan 2011 02:11 AM PST

"Blue Valentine" * * *

This dissection of five years of a relationship and marriage sets out to answer the question once posed by writer Tom Robbins: "Who knows how to make love stay?"

"Blue Valentine" skips back and forth across time as it reveals a woman named Cindy (Michelle Williams) confronting the limits of being married to Dean (Ryan Gosling), a mercurial and unsatisfying spouse who rationalizes his life choices and his drinking in every argument he starts.

The film, made notorious because of a needless ratings dust-up over its not-all-that sex scenes, feels off-the-cuff and improvised. Director Derek Cianfrance doesn't blink when the going gets tough. Rated R; graphic sexual content, language, a scene involving a beating. 2 hours. By Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel.

"Country Strong" * *

This predictable outing about a famous country singer (Gwyneth Paltrow) who's drinking her way to the bottom is at heart a mystery. As in: Who stole the plot?

Alas, that question is never answered by writer and director Shana Feste ("The Greatest"). Several good performances (Paltrow, Tim McGraw, Garrett Hedlund) are left adrift as the script roams from one cliched moment to another. Paltrow, Hedlund and Leighton Meester do their own singing and do quite well.

You won't go wrong if you skip the movie and buy the soundtrack. Rated PG-13; mature themes, alcohol abuse, sexual content. 1 hour, 52 minutes. By Bill Goodykoontz, Gannett News Service.

"The Dilemma" * *

Vince Vaughn (Ronny) and Kevin James (Nick) are partners in a Chicago auto-engineering business. When Ronny stumbles across Nick's wife, Geneva (Winona Ryder), making out with a hunky younger man, he's troubled: Should he tell Nick? How can he tell him so the news won't mess up an impending business deadline?

As usual, James tries too hard. Vaughn picks his moments to turn it up and blow it out. Ryder reminds us in a single funny-poignant scene what she's capable of as an actress. She's so good she left director Ron Howard with a real dilemma: how not to make this movie totally about her. Rated PG-13; mature themes, sexual content. 1 hour, 57 minutes. By Roger Moore.

"The Green Hornet" * *

Because the script comes from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who cowrote "Superbad," the first half of the movie feels as if it's meant to play like a Judd Apatow-style bromance -- one with elaborate gadgetry. But as it wears on, it devolves into a numbing onslaught of automatic weapon fire, shattered glass and explosions.

Rogen plays Britt Reid, a publishing heir who becomes a vigilante crime fighter by night, as a version of the good-natured, wisecracking slacker he plays in everything he does. Having an actor with some depth and range -- like, say, Robert Downey Jr. in the "Iron Man" movies -- can elevate this kind of playful material. Rogen simply doesn't have it the skill to pull it off. Rated PG-13; violence, language, sensuality, drug content. 1 hour, 58 minutes. By Christy Lemire, Associated Press.

"No Strings Attached" * *

A guy and a girl agree to have sex whenever they want without all those pesky emotions getting in the way. What's intriguing about it is that the girl in the equation (Natalie Portman) is the one who suggests this arrangement, and the guy (Ashton Kutcher) is the one who breaks the rules and falls in love. It's a reversal of traditional gender roles and an indication that we might be in for something fresh. Except we're not.

This romantic comedy from veteran director Ivan Reitman falls into all the usual traps and its outcome is never in doubt. Rated R; sexual content, language, drug content. 1 hour, 42 minutes. By Christy Lemire.

"Rabbit Hole" * *

David Lindsay-Abaire's play about a married couple trying to cope with the accidental death of their 4-year-old son finds its focus diluted in this screen adaptation by director John Cameron Mitchell. The questions of how we work through grief are unquestionably valid ones, but an air of genteel familiarity stifles their effect here. Despite everyone's best intentions and an outstanding performance by Nicole Kidman, the devastating tragedy at the heart of the story feels generic. Rated PG-13; mature themes, drug use, language. 1 hour, 32 minutes. By Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.

"Somewhere" * * *

The latest film from writer-director Sofia Coppola is a perceptive look at celebrity culture even if it sometimes feels like a character piece in search of a larger story. Anchored by engaging performances by Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning, it trains a sharp eye on both the rarefied existence of a movie star and the world of an adolescent who is shuttled between divorced parents and yearning to find a home. Rated R; sexual content, nudity, language. 1 hour, 37 minutes. By Claudia Puig, USA Today.

"The Way Back" * * *

Director Peter Weir's film is an entertaining, old-fashioned prison escape movie about soldiers and political prisoners who flee a Soviet gulag during the early days of World War II. Their odyssey south from Siberia takes them across tundra, desert and the Himalayas. Among the runaways are Colin Farrell, who plays a lifelong thief and murderous thug; Ed Harris, an American caught up in a Soviet roundup, and Saoirse Ronan ("Atonement"), an urchin on the run. Jim Sturgess plays Janusz, the young Polish soldier who leads their quest for freedom. Rated PG-13; violence, physical hardship, a nude image, language. 1 hour, 38 minutes. By Roger Moore.
