Tonight was always going to end up in a London hotspot, decked out in blue neon with Felix B, one of the duo who form Basement Jaxx pounding our ears at the Tate Modern which played host for the after-show party.
The arrival of Disney’s Tron: Legacy was always going to turn heads, its design is brilliantly futuristic and the production design and original soundtrack from Daft Punk have teased the fans long enough, and the UK premiere held in Leicester Square was a fantastic event with cast and crew on hand to give the legion of Tron fans (who haven’t got a collective term so far) something to talk about.
Upon entering the Tate, we were thrust into a space full to the brim with models dressed as characters from the movie and surrounded by multiple lasers (which I’ve just found out created the largest ever laser display in the UK!) which filled the gigantic space while the heavy bass created by The Official Soundtrack (which is out today too by the way) filled the huge space to create an electrifying atmosphere!
The room had Flynn’s Arcade set up where you could play the new Tron: Evolution on Xbox or go and have eye-lashes done like a Siren! I decided just to try the former and skip the eyelash extensions – I’ll save that for next time!
Jeff Bridges, Olivia Wilde, vehicle designer Daniel Simon and director, Joseph Kosinski were all at the party for a short while before heading back off to their hotel for a full day of junkets today. Some of the official photos from this evening are placed below too.
I’d never been to and aftershow party before and Disney have set the bench very high if ever I go to another! I’ve placed a video and some photos from the evening below which you can click to enlarge as well as a couple of links to our premiere coverage and to my review of the film itself which hits UK cinemas on December 17th.
My Premiere report can be found here, and my review of the film is available here.
