Few comic books in recent years have engendered as loyal of a fanbase or had such a unique impact as writer Matt Fraction and artist David Aja’s 2012 Marvel series Hawkeye. Its quirky storytelling, deeply flawed protagonists, and one-of-a-kind art make it a comic book like no other and a major influence on modern superhero stories.
Director Joseph Kosinski’s 2010 science fiction film Tron: Legacy has become a cult favorite in the years since its release, much like the original Tron from 1982. Both films underperformed at the box office upon release, squashing hopes for a sequel, but steadily grew dedicated followings thanks to the worlds imagined on screen. Thanks to their state-of-the-art technology and commitment to bringing something new and unique to life, they have captured the imaginations of millions who chose to venture into their dangerous digital worlds.
Like the original Tron, Tron: Legacy follows the story of a man trapped inside a digital world known as The Grid where the forces of order and rebellion clash. Here in Tron: Legacy, its Sam Flynn, who is sucked into the world of The Grid in his search for his long missing father, Kevin, who once traveled to The Grid in the original film. Once in this digital world, Sam is quickly forced to fight for his life in gladiatorial combat and against the digital overlords who have come to oppress all others. It’s a simple story, but, much like the first film, is meant as more of a simple skeleton upon which is built a vibrant and unforgettable world.
