Experience the 'Tron Legacy' Trailer Vicariously

Did you miss the super-secret Tron Legacy trailer premier this Saturday? Yeah, me too. But thankfully some other people, like Heat Vision's Borys Kit did see it, and have related their experience to us--which is idea if you're the type of person who will accept "hearing about someone having sex" as a second place to "having sex."

OK, imagine all this being covered in strips of neon:

The trailer starts off on the slow side, building a mystery. Bruce Boxleitner, reprising his role of Alan Gartner, is telling Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund) about his missing dad, Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges). He had discovered something that was going to change the world two days before he went missing. Now Boxleitner gets a phone call from a phone from Flynn's Arcade...a line that should be dead! Soon enough, Hedlund, with an appropriate chip on his shoulder from not having a dad in his life, is at the arcade (he gets there by motorbike, speeding down late night streets and jumping his motorbike from the highway to an off-ramp) and...
...before long, he's in the computer world. Here the trailer's pace jumps up a notch, giving us a series of quick and very teasing images of the world fans have been waiting to come to since 1982: a massive city, a blocky transportation machine, Olivia Wilde lounging sexily in a glowing suit, gladiator games, more gladiator games with sexy sirens, Bridges with a retinue of underlings, a blink-and-you-missed-him Michael Sheen, maybe a meeting of father and son, and the kicker ending, a lightcycle race with an explosion (the last image eliciting whoops and hollers).

Sweet, Tron Legacy has an explosion! I love it when something explodes!
