Pharrell Williams' "Gust of Wind"

Fan-favorite director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) dropped a preview of one of his next projects via his Twitter feed with a quick preview of the video for Pharrell Williams‘ single “Gust of Wind.”

“Gust of Wind” will be the fourth single of off Williams’ album GIRL. The song features the French electronic duo Daft Punk, who Williams worked with in the past on the hit single “Get Lucky.” Those are Daft Punk’s iconic helmets that Pharrell is approaching in the video.

Wright is a director with a large cult following and it’s good to see him at work after ending his involvement with Marvel’s Ant-Man. I know lots of people are patiently waiting for his next film, and this should serve as something to tide them over. Check out the video below.

Daft Punk album Random Access Memories

Daft Punk‘s album Random Access Memories dropped yesterday. The key word for this album is funk. Disco funk, that is.

There was a lot of teasing for their new album that was 8 years in the making. Pseudo leaks permeated the internet. One leak caused Trace Dominguez from DNews channel to dance in a loop for about a minute. Daft Punk does strange things to people.

Then “Get Lucky” was released unto the radio waves and I swear it was set to play on repeat until the apocalypse came around. But I was okay with it. The jam is *that* good.

Later in the show, we take a look at the announcement that Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot will be helming the third Bill & Ted movie; and also at the rumors surrounding Ben Affleck possibly being groomed by Warner Brothers to be the director for a Justice League movie.

Disney In Depth: Tron: Uprising Review

Disney In Depth banner

Tron: Uprising, an arrestingly-captivating new animated original series on the Disney XD channel, brings viewers back into the grid with the dynamic visuals, electrifying music and gripping storytelling that rekindled audiences with digital dazzle in Tron: Legacy.

Set between the original Tron and Tron: Legacy, Tron: Uprising focuses on mechanic-turned-renegade Beck (voiced by Elijah Wood), a deft programmer living in the stunning Argon City. Beck’s free-thinking society is soon threatened by the menacing General Tesler (Lance Henriksen), one of the evil CLU’s cohorts, who aims to take charge of the metropolis. Once his friend is “derezzed,” or the Tron version of someone being killed, Beck avenges his death by disguising himself as believed-to-be-dead hero Tron and inspiring a revolution. In the intense prologue special, “Beck’s Beginning,” we see this as almost an origins story, provided with heavy exposition to better understand the characters and storyline.

Netflix Review: TRON LegacyTRON Legacy
Netflix Streaming
DVD | Blu-Ray
Directed by Joseph Kosinski
Starring Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Beau Garrett, Michael Sheen, James Frain, Bruce Boxleitner, Daft Punk, Cillian Murphy
Walt Disney Pictures
Originally Released: December 17, 2010

TRON Legacy is a film that, for many of us, was a generation in waiting. Many of us who were children of the Eighties were floored with the richness and uniqueness of the original TRON film, sadly now quite dated (visually, though the story still stands up), as it was a statement of the budding tech generation we were becoming a part of. For decades, we waited for the potential of a sequel, and some of us lost all hope.

Then in 2008, something exciting happened at San Diego Comic-Con. Disney previewed new “test” footage in a trailer that was somewhat of a “proof-of-concept”. Then called TR2N, the sequel news set the internet on fire – as countless fans of the original movie enjoyed the fever of the news that another chapter was coming out. I’m sure even Tron Guy was amused.

Tron Legacy soundtrack

For a huge selection of high quality MP3 albums at low prices there’s no better place to shop online than at Amazon. Every month the website hosts a wide variety of downloadable discs for $5 at their MP3 Store where each month they have 100 titles available, each of which will only set you back a single digital Abe Lincoln. Since individual MP3’s tend to sell for 99 cents at least you’re saving yourself a few bucks as well. Among the sweet deals Amazon is offering in November you’ll find titles from artists such as Lauren Hill, Bob Dylan, the Black Keys, George Thorogood and the Destroyers, John Coltrane, Kings of Leon, and Norah Jones.

There’s not a single dud in this bunch, but there’s one particular selection that has caught my attention so I’ve decided to write about it in greater detail: Tron: Legacy – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.

Geek Discussion: Is The ‘Mass Effect’ Movie Doomed Already?

Mass Effect

A movie adaptation of the mega–hit BioWare video game franchise, Mass Effect, is still in the very early stages of development, but already basic details are being shared that are pretty interesting and potentially unsettling.

Last we had heard, the project would be making an appearance at this past San Diego Comic–Con with BioWare’s Casey Hudson and screenwriter Mark Protosevich, but because it was so early, not much was shared. Not that it appeared, anyway. As it turns out, Legendary Pictures, the studio behind the planned movie, actually answered a few questions that fans were asking via the Twitter on their website. And a couple of their answers could have fans unsure of what’s to come.

Continue reading to see the Q&A and to chime in below with your thoughts on the Mass Effect movie!

Tron: LegacyThe Internet public radio station 89.9 KCRW has posted an interview on their website from the show Morning Becomes Eclectic in which host Jason Bentley talked with Joseph Kosinski, the director of the upcoming Tron: Legacy, about his collaboration with the French dance music duo Daft Punk and their work on the Tron Legacy Soundtrack.

Bentley, who has previously served as the music supervisor for the Matrix trilogy, played a big hand in getting the boys in Daft Punk to score the big-budget sequel. In the interview Kosinski and Bentley talk in great detail about the director’s musical influences, how they figured into his vision for the Tron: Legacy score, and his experiences working with Daft Punk.

Kosinski also spoke about having the final mix of the score done at Skywalker Ranch, where the mix engineers described it as “the loudest film they had ever mixed music for.”

SDCC 2010: Could ‘Tron Legacy’ Be The First Good 3D Film Post Avatar?

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

Tron: Legacy may be the first exception to the slew of recent big budget films released in 3D to yield a larger profit margin for studios.

The Disney feature was filmed using a newer generation of the Fusion Camera System developed by James Cameron for Avatar — meaning the 3D elements were done during the filming and not in post-production like Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland, Clash of the Titans, and several others.

“The look of Tron is unique. That’s one of the strongest things about it,” said producer and director of the original Tron Steven Lisberger during a press conference at 2010 San Diego Comic-Con.
