At Comic-Con last summer, Walt Disney Pictures kicked-off a viral campaign for Tron Legacy that led fans to discover FlynnLives.com, HomeofTron.com, and Flynn’s Arcade in San Diego where fans got to see the Light Cycle up close. Then at the Con, the studio also showed director Joseph Kosinski’s Grid VFX Concept Test.
This morning, we received word from scooper ‘Angel Bidot’ that he received a new package in the mail from “Flynn Lives.” The packaging included the text “/zerohour” and if you put that after FlynnLives.com, up comes FlynnLives.com/ZeroHour! Can you figure out what’s next?
Opening in 3D theaters and IMAX 3D on December 17, the film stars Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Bruce Boxleitner, James Frain, Beau Garrett and Michael Sheen.
UPDATE 1: As pointed out the comments below, FlynnLives.com/ZeroHour is a countdown, counting down in binary. At the time of this posting, it has about 8 days and 21 hours left.
UPDATE 2: Something new is slowly appearing below the countdown clock at FlynnLives.com/ZeroHour. It appears to be some kind of text and it looks like we’ll be able to read it before the clock ends on the 24th.
UPDATE 3: The text that is appearing at FlynnLives.com/ZeroHour is cities throughout the world. Much like the “Dark Knight” campaign, we suspect 42 Entertainment (the creators of these viral campaigns) will be asking fans in those cities to do something that might lead to another thing. Stay tuned…
UPDATE 4: The following was just sent out to registered users of FlynnLives.com:
To all those who passionately believe that Kevin Flynn, digital pioneer and legendary game designer, is still alive LISTEN UP!
Our last event at Flynns Arcade was a call-to-arms for those of us who wont buy into Encom-driven public propaganda about what happened. Were not crazy – theres more to this story than they are letting out.
