Tokyo fest gets 30-minute 'Tron' trailer
TIFF to screen unreleased footage at invite-only eventTOKYO – A special 30-minute screening of “Tron: Legacy" in 3D, including previously unseen footage, will be held at the Tokyo International Film Festival.
Walt Disney Studios Japan, which is organizing the event, is releasing minimal information about the screening, and like last year’s sneak preview of “Avatar” at the fest, will be on invitation-only basis.
Following the huge success in Japan of “Avatar,” and the Disney 3D releases this year of “Alice in Wonderland” and “Toy Story 3," the studio will have high expectations for the sequel to the 1982 cult classic.
The film, which will release in Japan on December 17, the same day it bows Stateside, will be only be shown in 3D here.
TIFF runs October 23-31.
