Overnight, the viral countdown at the TRON LEGACY FlynnLives website, has indeed revealed a list of 25 cities around the world, beginning with NEW YORK which FilmEdge deciphered yesterday. Here’s the complete list as decipherable now:
SYDNEY DENVER MADRID PARIS BOSTON WASHINGTON DC ORLANDO ATLANTA RALEIGH SAN DIEGO NEW YORK PHILADELPHIA TORONTO AUSTIN INDIANAPOLIS NASHVILLE CHICAGO SALT LAKE CITY LOS ANGELES SAN FRANCISCO PORTLAND SEATTLE LAS VEGAS PHOENIX LONDON
UPDATE: As of Friday afternoon, the second city name listed now appears to be DENVER. FilmEdge is still guessing, but the letter spacing fits this city which Detroit did not. Also the horizontal bar character where the N would appear in DENVER also matches the bar currently seen in the N space of SAN DIEGO, if there’s any consistency to decoding these letters.
Will these be the cities where a new TRON LEGACY trailer debuts next Tuesday, or will there be some exterior display revealed? Or will some announcement be made at Zero Hour next week involving these cities in some Comic-Con style fan event or stunt? The mystery continues a bit longer even though we’ve solved one piece of this puzzle with four days to go. FilmEdge will continue pursuing clues (Clu’s?) to what this all means — you’ve got to love viral publicity intrigue!
Thanks to FilmEdge blog reader Mescad for commenting with an early draft of the list, which I’ve updated above with one city still indecipherable (it doesn’t appear to be DETROIT as first proposed).
