Jace Lacob reports: Tron: Legacy's Jeff Bridges took to his soapbox during the Comic-Con panel for the visually inventive sequel to the 1982 original film to speak about the evils of plastic water bottles, which he said weren't really biodegradable. Bridges called the film, which opens December 17, "a modern myth" about "the dark side of technology," much like plastic, as well. One plus of advances in technology: Bridges will appear alongside his 35-year-old self in Joe Kosinski's film, an astonishing and well-crafted digital likeness of the young Bridges, who reprises his role as Kevin Flynn. Attendees, meanwhile, got to participate in the crowd recording for the film's arena scenes... and caught eight minutes of footage from the sequel 27 years after the original. The reaction was anything but lackluster for the Daft Punk-scored IMAX 3D flick. "It blew Avatar away," said one fan.
