It’s every Hamlet’s worst nightmare. In the hush just before “To be, or not to be,” a cellphone rings. People tut and roll their eyes. The dramatic tension drains away like dishwater through a plughole.
“Tron: Legacy,” a sequel to the 1982 Walt Disney Co . release about a man trapped in a video game, opened as the top-grossing weekend movie, with $44 million in ticket sales at U.S. and Canadian theaters.
The Tribeca Film Festival today announced the first half of its lineup for the 10th annual event, including a drama starring Dennis Farina as a Chicago hustler and a documentary about a man wrongly convicted of killing two sisters in the Philippines.
“ Tron: Legacy ” takes place in a futuristic world where glowing gladiators fight to the death before roaring stadium crowds, and humanoid robots race sleek motorcycles that zoom through the air like spaceships.
