Several owners of (movie related) websites received a package from Disney with a couple of Arcade Coins and a memory stick. Together these were the "keys" to a special arcade that Disney recreated to start up interest in the new Tron movie.



"Flynn's Arcade" it was called of course.

Not only was there a good number of working classic machines, but they even made a "REAL" Space Paranoids cab !!! (Regretfully with an LCD but hey.....)

Behind a (guarded !) Tron machine, there was a big secret ! Notice the music by Daft Punk...

I sure hope the movie will live up to the excellent marketing strategies by disney:

some video's of the arcade, be sure to check them ALL out !!!

I bet the BYOAC coin community will make repro's soon, although they are always very afraid of copyright in the US Wink

Where's the hi-res trailer ?

They have been selling on EBay US for anywhere between $25 to $80 (with ticket).

That HD trailer looks absolutely awesome, this is now my most officially anticipated film! I LOVED the original!

Look at the poster for Space Paranoids !

http://forums.arcade-museum.com/showthread.php?t=97534&highlight=wtb+rally

They obviously even hacked up the well known "house rules" sign !


I guess the US people will get the fun stuff only but I PRAY that they will do Europe as well......
