‘Tron: Legacy’ Director Gives Update On Potential Sequel

TRONTron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski has updated fans on the potential continuation of the Tron franchise.

With Kosinski’s latest film Only The Brave hitting theatres, the director was asked by ComingSoon regarding the future of the franchise. The proposed future entry in the franchise was titled Tron: Ascension. It was later revealed that Jared Leto was being eyed to star in a potential reboot that would rework the proposed script:

“Jared and I had actually been talking about Tron since Tron: Legacy back in 2009. We almost put him in that movie, actually in [the End of Line club scene]! So Jared’s a huge fan and we actually batted around ideas and I was talking to him about that role in Ascension, but we only got to the script stage on that. We never really moved beyond that and that’s sort of where it sits for now.”

It’s interesting to see how the project has remained stationary ever since Tron: Legacy’s 2010 debut. The film wasn’t considered to be a huge success, but it received considerable acclaim from both fans and critics. However, it makes sense that Disney doesn’t think of Tron as a priority, considering they have the wildly successful Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe under their belt.

Joseph Kosinski’s latest directorial effort Only The Brave is the director’s first non-sci-fi film.

All men are created equal… then, a few become firefighters. Only the Brave, based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, is the heroic story of one unit of local firefighters that through hope, determination, sacrifice, and the drive to protect families, communities, and our country become one of the most elite firefighting teams in the country. As most of us run from danger, they run toward it–they watch over our lives, our homes, everything we hold dear, as they forge a unique brotherhood that comes into focus with one fateful fire.

Only The Brave stars Miles Teller, Josh Brolin, Taylor Kitsch, Jennifer Connelly, and Jeff Bridges and is currently in theatres.

The 10 Movie Trailers With The Most Views In 24 Hours, Ranked

Transformers Spider-Man It Movie PennywiseNot all trailers are created equal. Some give away too many plot points while some don’t reveal enough. Some only earn a couple thousand views in their lifetime, while others earn up to 197 million views in just 24 hours. At this point, trailers have become an art form in themselves as they sell the movie to audiences who have thousands of different entertainment projects competing for their attention. To win the public’s attention, studios often spend big money on marketing campaigns designed to draw as many eyes onto a franchise as possible.

Heroic Hollywood has gathered the ten trailers that generated the most views in their 24 hours and ranked them from worst to best. Just because a trailer is on the top ten doesn’t mean that it’s good (the same applies for the movies mentioned in this list), it just means it succeeded in capturing the attention of the world for a moment. In the dog-eat-dog world that is the entertainment industry, if you aren’t able to generate buzz around your product months before it’s even released, then you’re doing something wrong.

    I’ve been desperate for another Tron film ever since Legacy. Such an underappreciated franchise.
