This is one movie that looks very tempting to watch over the weekends…

From Fast Company:-
When Tron Legacy comes out in theaters, it’ll be one of the most expensive movies ever made. But it isn’t being directed by James Cameron or Michael Bay or Peter Jackson. It’ll actually be a first-time feature for Joseph Kosinski–who didn’t train as a film-maker. Instead, he went to grad-school for architecture at Columbia; after that, he founded a Web-design firm, of all things.
I saw the original Tron movie a couple of times and the central point of the movie would be duel in the Light Cycle arena.
In fact the whole Tron movie was ahead of it’s time – it was made in the late 1970s and one of the few that toyed with virtual world way before internet was something that most of us cannot live without. It is also one that talked about hackers and how computer defenses acts to stop the intrusion to the system.
Tron: Legacy opens tomorrow….
