I fight for the Blu-Ray and DVD Users...
I want this SteelBook...
And I may even purchase that Ultimate Tron Experience. Maybe that's what the Mouse has been wanting all along?
Now if I could just build me an IMAX theater in my back yard to show it in...
I'll be happy to go in on a backyard imax-at-home set up. That is if you can share the wealth of it all.
Seriously though I'm probably going to get the Ultimate Tron Experience. I have no intention of buying any 3D equipment, but I may just seek out some rental equipment to properly enjoy TRON: Legacy.
Honor, any word if TR3N does go forward what are the chances Joseph Kosinski gets replaced? Also do you think Disney will keep him attached to The Black Hole remake and Oblivion?? Is Disney measuring the success of TRON: Legacy on his future at with the studio?
They had better NOT replace Joe Kosinski! He's the best thing to happen to the franchise! He clearly has vision and knows how to maintain Steven Lisberger's world. I cannot wait to see his vision for The Black Hole. Go Joe!
For Cinema Experience, usually a good Sony 4K Setup is actually the best as image quality, usually this can beat IMAX that uses 2 Christie 2K projector stacked. For the home experience, go with a Panasonic Plasma and you're at the edge, for even better you need to switch to a Home Projector :)
Tron was #3 in foreign box office this past week, and is expected to go over $400 million world wide in two weeks. Tangled was #1 in foreign box office an has an outside shot at $500 million.
Looking foward to seeing the next Tron and I wished I had seen Tron in 3D.
Man I feel like such a loser....I still haven't seen the new Tron. (Don't shoot me!)
"Tron was #3 in foreign box office this past week, and is expected to go over $400 million world wide in two weeks."
Good luck with that. Domestic box office this past week was $3 million, while international box office was $7 million. Domestic ticket sales continue to decline, and international sales have stalled.
The film will probably reach $400 million worldwide by the end of February, when its domestic run ends. The international market will continue to limp along, earning less than $10 million per week during March.
Even if TRON ends up with $450 million total, which is highly unlikely at this point, it still needs to earn at least $500 million to break even. So the only way this franchise will continue is if Disney can make its coin through related markets.
If you want to see TR3N, I'd suggest pre-ordering multiple Blu-Rays and DVDs right now.

I don't know where you pull your facts and figures from but it already broke even when it made $300 million. Tron Legacy has already become profitable for the studio and that's not including the DVD/Blu-ray sales and merchandising. There will be another sequel to Tron.
Hate to break it to you anonymous 8:09am. But movies usually see a dip in attendance after being in theatres for umpteen weeks. What they don't see however is a steady gross week after week. The numbers are there people are still going to see it. And most movies would find it impossible to still in the top 15 grossing films after this much time. But at this point actual box office take is almost irrelevant. Majority of the take is going to the theatres, merchandise and home video sales are now going to decide the fate of a sequel.
I don't know if there will be one or not. The film has made a profit albeit a small one at the box office. But you need to have a better argument then declining box office take and attendance.
Btw. Tron legacy toys have been flying off the shelfs and the BluRay is in the top ten on amazon. I'm pretty confident this film is doing just fine for Disney.
