Disney Cancels Tron 3

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:20794:]]

In a surprising move, Disney has decided not to move forward with Tron 3.

Garett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and director Joseph Kosinski were all set to return for the third installment, said to be titled “Tron: Ascension,” which was to begin filming this Fall in Vancouver.

According to THR, Tron 3 was not officially greenlit (which seems odd as Olivia Wilde recently spoke about the movie offering her character was going to be put in the real world).

The report mentions no specific reason why Tron 3 was cancelled, but the report and various Hollywood trade sites are suggesting Tron 3 may not be moving forward because of the underperformance of Tomorrowland in addition to Tron: Legacy not being a big merchandise seller. Instead, Disney appears to want to concentrate on their animated movies and big tentpole films.

It’s also said Jared Leto and Olivia Munn were wanted for roles at one point, though no official offer or negotiations took place.

2010’s Tron: Legacy grossed over $400 million at the box office at a budget of $170 million.

Olivia Wilde Talks Tron 3 & Quorra In The Real World (Video)

Watch video above of Olivia Wilde talking about her return to Tron 3.

Wilde obviously can’t offer much, but she does let it be known story elements of Tron 3 will follow her character, Quorra, in the real world.

Here is the blurb:

“I love this character of Quorra so much and I’ve built her with Joe Kosinski and we took her such a long way from what was written to what we made. I mean, I fought for her to be this kind of androgynous child and that’s so not what you typically see in these movies, so I’m so grateful that the producers let me play with her and make her this strange little being. And I’m really excited to see what happens to that character when put into the real world. I think it’s an interesting concept. I’m fascinated by all discussions of AI, and especially now today and now with virtual reality becoming something that’s like a personal device, I think it’s the time to tell this story.”

Tron 3 is said to be filming this Fall in Vancouver (though unconfirmed by Wilde above) and has been rumored to be titled “Tron: Ascension.”

Rush (2013): New International Trailer Online With Chris Hemsworth

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6683:]]Chris Hemsworth of Thor 2: The Dark World has a new movie coming out this September with Rush, which also stars Olivia Wilde, and Natalie Dormer of Game of Thrones.

It’s directed by Ron Howard as well.

A new international trailer has been released and be sure to check out the synopsis for more details.

Synopsis:

Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda. In UK cinemas on Sept 13th. The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives. Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed—handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, Rush follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die.

Rush has a September 20, 2013 release directed by Ron Howard and also starring Daniel Brühl, Alexandra Maria Lara, Stephen Mangan, Christian McKay, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Jamie de Courcey, and Pierfrancesco Favino.

SDCC 2011: ‘In Time’ (2011): Trailer and Movie Posters

Fan of Justin Timberlake?

Well, you might be after seeing this clip of the sci-fi futuristic thriller, In Time, that was released at the San Diego Comic Con.

The premise is actually pretty cool.

There is no more money, instead, “time” has replaced forms of currency.

When you hit the age of 25, you stop aging and begin to acquire “time” credits. You can trade the credits for food and such (women!), or work a job to acquire more, etc.
