This is a set of posters from Mondo Posters created by Eric Tan. One is a for the 25-year old original and one is for the new Tron Legacy.
“When creating posters for each of the ‘Tron’ films, what immediately came to mind were the parallels between the two worlds and how it had progressed over the years. Since similar elements such as disks, light cycles, and recognizers exist in both, I thought showing the contrast between new and old was a visually interesting angle to play up. Linking the two main characters was something I thought would add to the storytelling and the father/son dynamic between Kevin and Sam Flynn. To me, those films are amazing examples of visual ‘candy,’ and I hope I was able to capture that in my posters.”
When placed side-by-side, this is the result. Pretty damned awesome if you ask me. I’ve always been a huge Tron fan and awaited the day someone would come along and do a remake. With this Friday’s release of Tron Legcy, I guess we’ll see if anything can live up to the radicalness that was the original.
