New Year’s resolutions are a time to work towards a transformation of your body and/or your life. To honor these goals, this month we’re going to look at transformative roles in film.

Can studios really expect theater audiences to keep coming back to old franchises decades after their original release? Looking at data over the last couple decades, the answer has become a resounding yes. This is an in-depth look at why that is.
TRON: Legacy was a fairly polarizing movie when it released back in 2010. Some hated it vehemently, while others continue to staunchly defend it. Regardless of where you fell on the spectrum, most agree that it didn't do nearly as well as expected. While Disney had laid out plans for a third movie, the weaker box office returns put that all in doubt. Now, it looks like they're full ahead with TRON 3 once again.
To celebrate the release of TRON Legacy on Blu-ray and DVD on April 5, The Movie Pool recently had the chance to sit in on Q&A sessions with the Oscar-winning minds behind the sensational visual effects in the film. The first Q&A, with Oscar-winning Visual Effects Supervisor Eric Barba, can be viewed right here. Our second Q&A is with Steve Preeg of Digital Domain, the Head of Animation for TRON Legacy. Preeg won an Oscar for his work on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. His other credits include Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Flags of Our Fathers, I, Robot, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and King Kong. Preeg (center in the picture below) is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences
