Sure, it’s no TRON x Michael Jackson remix, but this re-edit/remix by NTEIBINT does a nice job of giving us one more reason to watch this same, awesome footage. December’s oh-so-close.

TR2N: New Tron Legacy Comic-Con Trailer and Daft Punk Soundtrack Release Date

The Tron Legacy soundtrack is getting released a month before the flick itself: November 23.

Hear snippets of six of the Daft Punk songs at this radio station’s site. They’re dark, dramatic, and bass-y in all the right ways. Though not as immediately rocking as the incredible Tron Shiryu Remix (love it!!).


More backstory. More arcade. More blue lines and lightbike-y awesomeness. More reasons to screw patience and cryogenically freeze yourself until December 17. [via Electronic Rumors]
