When Tron Legacy hit the big screen, it seemed like Disney was finally ready to give the classic sci-fi franchise a new lease on life. But, one mediocre box office run later, and The Grid hit the skids. So, is there still hope for a revival?
Even if you haven't seen Tron: Legacy, you surely know from the trailers that Kevin Flynn has been trapped in the Grid for years. The upcoming animated TV show, Tron: Uprising, which we reported on earlier, plans to fill in the gaps between the two movies. (Warning: spoiler alert.)
Could movie audiences possibly have known what was in store for them when they went into theaters in the summer of 1982? As this 30-year-old sneak peek clip shows, it was a huge year for sci-fi, and every one of the films mentioned turned out to be a bona fide classic.
