Comic Con: Flynn's Arcade Opens A New Door Into The Computer World
Flynnís Arcade is back at Comic Con this year and while last year it contained amazing secrets beyond anything anyone who showed up might have imagined, somehow theyíve managed to make the whole thing even bigger.
First a little background. If youíve seen the latest Tron: Legacy trailer then you know the arcade, which was first seen in the 1982 movie, figures prominently in the sequel. Kevin Flynnís son Sam shows up there one night, and finds a doorway into the computer world hidden behind one of the games. At Comic Con, theyíve recreated that, exactly. When you walk into the arcade, it looks as though it has been shut down for decades, the games all covered in plastic tarps. After a minute, Bruce Boxleitner, who plays Alan Bradley in the film, comes over the loudspeaker to tell Sam, played by Garrett Hedlund, that he has heard from his father. The lights flash and...you'll have to check out the rest below. Last year when that doorway opened it led to a lightcycle, while this year it leads directly into the brightly lit, amazing computer world. Take a look at whatís inside Flynnís Arcade this time, with the video walkthrough below and pictures from inside:
Pretty amazing right? For comparison, hereís what was behind the secret Flynnís Arcade door at Comic Con last year, in 2009:
