TRONNNNNNN!!!! Yes, this weekend marks the release of the highly anticipated sequel Tron Legacy. So the Tomatometer is a bit rotten at the moment, but the stunning visuals (and eye candy) should be enough to convince us all to see it on the big screen! Since this is the big movie opening this weekend, it would also be appropriate to kick off the ELO with Olivia Wilde.
After the jump some Tron related links, movie trailer dump, Ken Jennings takes on a computer, a Super Mario Bros. mashup with Grand Theft Auto, an awesome alternate ending to Yogi Bear and go banana!
