When it was released in 1982, Disney’s cyber-fi movie Tron was definitely ahead of its time. Predating the Internet by several years, the movie grossed only $33 million. But as technology advanced and high-definition gaming became commonplace in American culture, the movie’s cult following kept expanding — to the point where it inspired a sequel, Tron: Legacy. Passing the original movie’s box office numbers in just three days, Tron: Legacy went on to gross $172 million, enough to spur plenty of talk about a potential third Tron film. Bruce Boxleitner, who starred in the original Tron 35 years ago, says it’s still one of his most enjoyable experiences — not only was it a jump from TV to movies for him, but he loved getting to work with Jeff Bridges. (Oh, and it was a pretty cool consolation prize after losing out on the role of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars.)
