According to Slashfilm.com, Disney’s TR2N or updated TRON will be produced in stereoscopic 3D. The original TRON from 1982 was about a programmer who gets sucked into the insides of a computer, and has to find a way out as part of the programming code. A young Jeff Bridges had to survive disk throwing video games, 90 degree turning race tracks, and a lot of digital wheeling and dealing to make it to the end of the movie.
I saw it as a kid, and it still sounds a bit far fetched, but hey! If someone out there can make it through the trappings of Microsoft Windows in S-3D, I’ll buy a movie ticket for sure.
A few days ago, MTBS reported about a Dolby podcast talking about their stereoscopic 3D cinema solution (Dolby 3D). However, we failed to include the URL to the actual MP3 file!

There is a major initiative cooking featuring the involvement of multiple companies and game developers – and it’s all based on MTBS member ideas and feedback. We will keep you posted.
