Tron 2 leaked trailer

Tron 2 test footage still

Update: You’ll find the new high definition test footage from Comic-Con 2009 here

The new teaser trailer/test footage for the forthcoming TR2N movie starring Jeff Bridges was shown at the San Diego Comic Con the other day.

The Rock-afire Explosion were an animatronic band comprised of anthropomorphic animals that played in Showbiz Pizza Place restaurants in the USA through the 1980s. After closing down many of these setups found their way to enthusiasts. Here’s one such setup, performing MGMT’s Electric Feel.

Perhaps even more obscurely, a documentary is currently being produced about car-salesman Chris Thrash, a guy who recently purchased the rights to Rock-afire Explosion with an aim to resurrect them and the Showbiz Pizza Place. (via Penny Arcade)

“There aren’t enough Youtube video re-posts around here,” you say? Here’s another one.
