Iron Man 3

Mondo

For years — literally since before it was cool and you could call the shop at the S. Lamar Alamo Drafthouse and check to see if they had a particular poster in stock — we’ve been covering the work of the folks at Mondo. We’re cinematic art hipsters like that. And over the years we’ve seen them do some really great things, including series-upon-series of actually licensed posters for Star Wars and Star Trek alongside hundreds of other properties. The diversity of the work is a testament to how hard these folks work behind the scenes to secure the rights to even do the art in the first place. Unlike the Wild West of Etsy, if you want to become a popular art boutique selling posters to fanboys, you need to get your legal documents in order. That’s what makes some of the work they do so impressive. Anyone could doodle a poster and print out a few copies, but securing the rights and curating art from some of the world’s finest working artists is something special. One of the key licenses that Mondo has worked with over the past few years is that of Marvel Studios. In conjunction with a number of great Disney properties and of course, those killer Star Wars prints, their recent success has been built pretty steadily in the past half-decade over their ability to secure the biggest names in characters — Captain America, Thor and even this week’s guest of honor, Iron Man. Speaking of the latter, this […]

Iron Man 3

Harmony Korine and friends already gave us a taste of sand, sun and heavy weaponry, but it doesn’t quite feel like summer yet. Maybe that’s because global warming is making everything so cool or because President Obama keeps delaying all of our vacation planes, but the hugeness of the season still hasn’t fully descended. That’ll change this weekend when Iron Man 3 drops an arc reactor into theaters. Then, the parade of unbelievably massive summer movies commences with buddy cops, mischievous teens, people probably named Khan, bald Matt Damons, super men, and the end of the world itself in tow. It’s a tight race this year. Optimism runs high, and the next few months are packed full with studios and indie outfits hoping to entertain and score big, so the task of naming the 13 most-anticipated summer movies was a tough one. So instead of hurting our brains over it, we let math do the work by putting the question to the whole staff and tallying up the results. It’s a slightly eclectic mix, displaying the powerful potential of cinematic storytelling to bring us into the cool, dark room with a single light source. As luck would have it, we found a fittingly seasonal place to start:

Why does HBO get indie bands to do music for Game of Thrones? Where can you go if you want to smell Tony Stark inside his Iron Man suit? What kind of a world would we live in if Wolverine vs. Velociraptors existed? All this an more in tonight’s Movie News After Dark.

Not sure if you’re going to hit a midnight screening of Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3? On the fence about doling out the cash for an IMAX screening of the latest adventures of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)? Feel like your walls need some help looking their absolute coolest? We can fix all of those things for you. IMAX has long given out special posters for select midnight screenings, and while that tradition is (sadly) ending with next month’s Iron Man 3, they’re going out with one hell of a one-sheet. Designed by renowned comic book artist Jock, the very cool final poster will only be available to attendees of 12:01 IMAX shows of the film on May 3rd (and, you know, to people who are quick on the Ebay draw). Is your local theater participating? Find out by clicking here. [Press Release, via ComingSoon]

Oblivion Trailer Screenshot

What with Iron Man 3, Oblivion, Elysium, Pacific Rim and the myriad other blockbusting sci-fi movies coming out, 2013 is shaping up to be a great year for the genre. If by “genre” you mean “these four ideas repeated over and over again.”

Ant-Man

If you haven’t had your coffee yet, now’s a good time to take it ocularly. For the most part, this Phase Two featurette from Marvel (via Superhero Hype) is a keen look into the world of Iron Man 3 with an eye to how they’re deepening the well while returning to it in order to make Tony Stark a richer character post-Avengers. The cast and crew, alongside Marvel head Kevin Feige, weigh in on how this trilogy entry is also a piece of a much larger puzzle. Then, they show some of the other pieces. The briefest of footage from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Thor: The Dark World is joined by test footage from Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man, concept footage from Guardians of the Galaxy and a few comments from the filmmakers. At any rate, let’s stop pretending that you’re reading this and get to the video:

Iron Man Extended Look

On May 3rd, Tony Stark gets a fourth chance at a first impression. Despite three films where Robert Downey Jr. has brought Marvel’s Iron Man to life in a way that owns his shoot-from-the-hip personality, there have also been three very different Starsk so far. The first was a surprise. A serious take on what could have been a cartoonish character, pushing personal limits and regaining his stature. The second was a boozing failure who captured redemption at the cost of a messy story. The third came in The Avengers where the Stark we always knew existed finally broke through his sarcastic shell to prove selfless in the face of daunting impossibilities. And now Shane Black has entered the picture. The stellar writer/director will undoubtedly have yet another avenue for Stark to head down in Iron Man 3. To get a glimpse of that avenue, here’s the brand new trailer:

Iron Man 3

It goes without saying these days that one of the highlights of the Super Bowl every year are the big budget, balls to the wall commercials that come out, pimping everything from Doritos to cars to farmers and, of course, the big, upcoming summer movies. It’s a launching pad as big as San Diego Comic-Con – actually, much bigger, since millions are watching, so when you make a Super Bowl commercial, you make it big. The spots cost millions of dollars for just a few seconds – you really have to impress to get your money’s worth. Perhaps the most anticipated movie trailer set to debut during the Super Bowl was from this May’s Iron Man 3. With a release date so close, the film undoubtedly has a lot of film in the can (or digital files in the computer), and while there is no doubt tons of work still to be done, they could probably create a masterful and crazy exciting trailer. So why didn’t they?

Iron Man Extended Look

For many of us, the Super Bowl isn’t about the game so much as the party and the food and the commercials, especially the movie previews. As usual, this year gave us a mix of ads for films opening fairly soon and blockbusters arriving this summer. And as usual, some studios spent their dollars wisely while others didn’t, so there was also a mix of good and bad that will lead the buzz on these titles for at least the next couple days. After the jump we’ve listed all the movies advertised during Super Bowl  XLVII and categorized each as one of the winner or one of the losers of this annual Hollywood marketing game.

Reject Recap: The Best of Film School Rejects

As we get closer and closer to Halloween, the industry is doing its part to help with great holiday-themed content. We got a trailer for Iron Man 3 to either remind the kids of that superhero as a costume idea or to provide fresh suggestions. Who wants to be so antiquated as to go as something based on this year’s movies when you can leap frog into 2013 ideas? Are Mandarin and Iron Patriot hot last-minute costumes now? And then we got the news about Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to the Conan franchise, which should give many elderly folks encouragement to dress up as a character they’re way too old for. Come on, grandmas, “sexy ___” outfits are for you too. Oh, and Cloud Atlas is out this weekend, which may well inspire some last-minute blackface, whiteface, yellowface and zombie Willy Wonka face costumes. Speaking of the film, before we round up this week’s best features, I need to remind you of the latest reviews of new releases (Cloud Atlas, Pusher, Gut, The Thieves). Also this week, we saw new trailers for Holy Motors, the next Die Hard, the remake of Evil Dead and a seemed remake of Kingdom of the Fairies that would make Melies crap himself called Empires of the Deep. And we continued our new weekly recap reviews of TVs The Walking Dead while also reviewing American Horror Story: Asylum and 666 Park Avenue. Now, check out our biggest and best stories and original content from the past week after the […]

Iron Man 3

The lead-up to something like the Iron Man 3 trailer, which has arrived in the middle of the night like a sweet dream, is always a source of great debate. In this case, it was teasers for trailers piled on top of teasers for trailers. It’s a bit of annoyance, from a fan standpoint, to be consistently teased and toyed with, but it’s part of the game. Now the patience and frustration has paid off, as we have this new and glorious Iron Man 3 trailer to watch. First, lets watch and then we’ll discuss.

This would appear to be the week of Iron Man 3, at least where marketing is concerned. Yesterday we showed you a look at the teaser for the trailer that will debut online tomorrow morning. Today, we get something that will last a bit longer: a number of images from Iron Man 3 that show some of the most buzzed about elements from the film. There’s also a very fancy teaser poster. All of which can be seen right after the jump, alongside first looks at Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin, an official shot of the Iron Patriot armor and a little bit of the new Tony Stark haircut.

Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3 does not drop into theaters until May 3, 2013, but seeing as it’s the next movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s safe to assume that all eyes will be watching. Those eyes will likely by glued to Apple.com/Trailers on Tuesday, when Marvel and Disney will release the first full length trailer for the Shane Black-directed threequel. But first, that trailer must have its own teaser. Why? Because that’s the way of the world, friends. Then again, are we really here to complain about another look at that gorgeous new Iron Man armor, at Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and his new haircut, at Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) in trouble again, at Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin ponytail, or even whatever that massive air battle sequence is going to be? No, we’re not going to complain. Teasers for trailers is a silly practice, but we’ll let this one slide.

Thor and Iron Man

The first two films to be released in Marvel Studios’ post-Avengers, second wave of interconnected films are Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 and Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World. Through various rumor mills and casting reports we’ve already gleamed a lot about what these two sequels are going to be about, but today Marvel finally released official synopses of the two films, and have effectively removed any lingering doubts. First up is Black’s film, which the studio describes by saying, “Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?” While all that stuff about Iron Man having to go on a quest that tests his mettle is pretty vague, that last line of the synopsis about the man making the suit or the suit making the man clearly supports the rumors that have surfaced (due to various casting reports) that Iron Man 3 would largely be taking its inspiration from Warren Ellis’ […]

So, what are you guys doing on, oh, say November 6, 2015? Not booked yet? Your iCal is empty? Your day planner doesn’t go up that far? Well, we’ve got plans for you now. In one of the most innocuous press releases ever crafted, Disney has today sent around a listing of some new and updated release dates for some of their most anticipated features, sandwiching in Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man release date (yup, it’s that November 2015 one listed above) between stuff like like “Disney Animation Untitled” and “Pixar Animation Untitled.” Oh, and also? Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World will both be in 3D. Dimensions and money and stuff! After the break, check out the full listing of new and updated dates for ten new Disney features (including, admittedly, some details we’ve long known). And, never fear, you’ll also soon learn the release date of that Phineas and Ferb feature we’ve all been dying for.

Fantastic Fest

What is Movie News After Dark? After a few days of not posting, who even knows anymore. As many of you have seen, this week began Fantastic Fest. And as I’ve done every year without learning any important lessons or growing as a person, I made the mistake of thinking I could take on the first few days of Fantastic Fest and publish a few entries into the Movie News After Dark series. Several alcoholic beverages, seven films and a half-bottle of ibuprofen later and I’m once again in a position to learn a powerful lesson about overcommitment (I won’t). Fear not though, good friends and beloved readers, as Movie News After Dark has a hero. He just doesn’t start until Monday.

Up to this point, everything has gone pretty smoothly for the folks at Marvel. In all the chaos of building a franchise that churned out the year’s highest grossing film, they are yet to really see any major production problems. Although today brings something new into the fray, an injury to star Robert Downey Jr. that will delay production on Iron Man 3.
