Tron: Legacy and Spy Kids 3D mashup trailer

HollywoodNews.com: A close friend of mine put this up, so thank goodness I actually liked it… It mashes a Tron: Legacy trailer, fashioned off the first terrific teaser and uses Spy Kids 3: Game Over footage. Aside from a bit of awkward George Clooney as Bruce Boxleitner dubbing, it’s pretty successful. More importantly, as someone who really hated Tron: Legacy, this made me laugh my ass off.

Considering that Rodriguez’s 2003 sequel cost just $39 million, it’s almost offensive how much more exciting, colorful and imaginative the film was than the $200 million would-be franchise reboot that was positioned as ‘the next big thing’. Spy Kids 3D has some issues (too little of our adult stars for one), but it’s a stunningly exciting bit of family-friendly action filmmaking and it’s ahead-of-its-time 3D work still holds up, even if it is the last of the old-fashioned red-and-blue technique. The trailer accomplishes two things. It makes me hate Tron: Legacy even more while making me want to watch Spy Kids 3D again. And, as a side benefit, it reminds me to look forward to this month’s Spy Kids 4: Island of the Lost Dreams.
