The future is now. TRON: Legacy, the reboot of the 1982 cult classic, opened strong on Friday with an $18 million haul, according to early estimates. The Disney sequel, which was made for a whopping $170 million, pulled in an average of $5216 per its 3,400-some theaters. (A dollar number amped by casting a wide 3D net to 70% of those theaters.) And considering its A- score from CinemaScore audiences (A, interestingly, from the female participants), TRON: Legacy seems to have shed the mostly beloved stench of the original.
