Tron-Induced Flashback: The Black Hole (1979)

After seeing The Black Hole artwork in the Tron Comic-Con trailer I couldn’t help but pull this up …

I remember watching this as a kid in the Boulder City Theater (just outside Vegas), the same theater my great-grandfather helped build and later died in. No, not drawing any Flynn / Arcade connections. Just random backstory.

Anyway, the cameo’s no coincidence. Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is signed on to remake The Black Hole. Why, I don’t know.
