daft punk: tron, phoenix and madison square garden

The release date of Daft Punk‘s Tron: Legacy Soundtrack has been pushed back to December 7, and the film will hit theaters the following week on December 17. Meanwhile, Daft Punk and Tron nerds — like myself — are clinging to every nugget of information parsed out along the way.

Today comes the reveal of the most excellent glow-in-the-dark Daft Punk movie poster, available for pre-order at the Tron soundtrack site.

And if you haven’t heard it yet, there’s this hidden snippet of the soundtrack you can access by typing “derezzed” while on the site’s homescreen:

Daft Punk – “Derezzed” (From The Tron Legacy Score) by Some Kind of Awesome

Thanks to Some Kind of Awesome for that.

But the biggest news of the day is Daft Punk’s guest appearance at the Phoenix Madison Square Garden show last night. They joined their fellow Frenchmen for a mashup of “1901”, “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and “Around The World”.

Check out the homage to Close Encounters, reprise of “1901” and curtain call in this incredible clip:

Quite a confluence of awesome…
