2010 VFX Preview
The original Tron was a trailblazer in digital effects. Digital Domain has the challenge of capturing the spirit of the original, while pushing the visual effects to a new realm. The alternative world of the computer gives them ample opportunity to show off their chops. But should we have any doubt? We're seen the visual effects test and were wowed by that.
This time around Team Edward and Team Jacob must align forces to combat vamp Victoria and her bloodsucking brood in order to protect Bella from harm. Expect more vampire on werewolf violence, as well as a health dose of melodrama. Tippett Studio is back handling the werewolves and Image Engine signs on for the bulk of the other vfx.
