Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

As previously reported, Daft Punk, the French electronica duo known for their robot personas, have been tapped by Walt Disney Pictures to compose the score for TR2N, an update of the studio’s 1982 science fiction classic Tron.

    Well I’m not sure about that. Daft Punk could very well release another studio album any time before then. So far, their official records have been released in the years 1997, 2001 and 2005. So this year (2009) should see the arrival of their fourth album, if they continue their pattern.
