Iron Man 3

The moment that many of you have been waiting for is finally upon us… The Iron Man 3 trailer has been released!!!

Check it out:

It would appear since The Avengers Captain America and Iron Man have managed to put there differences behind them. Long enough at least to make this mechanical love child that seems to be the villain in this latest flick.

Also, I’m assuming this is an international trailer as it seems to contain at least 2 seconds from every scene in the film. Why must they insist on doing this? I was looking forward to watching the entire film but now I feel like I’ve already seen it.

Just in case you were interested, here’s the equally exhaustive blurb:

Watch the first official trailer for Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” coming to UK cinemas April 26th 2013, starring Robert Downey Jr.

In Marvel’s “Iron Man 3”, brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man played by Robert Downey Jr., is pitted 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?

Iron Man 3 continues the epic adventures of “Iron Man” and “Iron Man 2”, starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, “Iron Man 3” is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of “Tales of Suspense” (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with “The Invincible Iron Man” (#1) in May of 1968. “Iron Man 3” arrives in UK cinemas on April 26th 2013.

Sizzling Daredevil Trailer

Don’t mistake what you are about to see for another waste of space fan-made trailer. This is Joe Carnahan’s (Director of The Grey and Smokin’ Aces) recent pitch to  Twentieth Century Fox, for his reimagining of the super sensitive, claret clad, Marvel hero… Daredevil.

Unfortunately Fox had a finite time to get a film into production before the Daredevil rights reverted back to Disney/Marvel. Last night Carnahan tweeted “DD pitch was tremendous and everyone flipped for it. The clock ticked down at Fox, that’s why it went tits up”.

 

Man of Steel

The Man of Steel trailer has rocketed to earth and hit YouTube. Our first glimpse of director Zack Snyder’s reboot of the Superman story is here:

Release Date: June 14, 2013
Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures

Helping produce this super heroic origins story is the Dark Knight legend Christopher Nolan, keeping an eye on the DC legacy.

Here’s the poster, released for all the superfans after last weekend’s Comic Con:

A New Trailer Rises (plus Prometheus)

What an epic way to start the week.

Not only did Sunday night take us to the far ends of the Earth… nay, universe with the latest trailer in Ridley Scott‘s eagerly anticipated Aliens prequel Prometheus but yesterday Christopher Nolan blessed us with tension building teaser for the last instalment of the Dark Knight trilogy, TheDark Knight Rises.

And here they both are:

Prometheus – International launch trailer

This was probably one of the most effectively publicised trailer releases I have ever witnessed, mainly thanks to Zeebox (your TV sidekick). To rally support for both the upcoming film and TV’s  rapidly growing social partner, Zeebox, they ran a ticket giveaway awarding a lucky few Tweeters that hashtagged #AreYouWatchingThis and #Zeebox during the initial airing of the trailer on Channel4. By the looks of things on Twitter it would appear hundreds tuned in not to watch Showtime’s new hit TV series Homeland but instead to sit through the ads (WIN!).

The Dark Knight Rises – Trailer #3

And if you thought it couldn’t get any better, Nolan releases more footage of the legendary Dark Knight, featuring more explosion, more characters, more plot and more atmosphere than a basketball match against real Bears and Raptors.
If you were to ask me, which you didn’t but you’re getting it anyway. I think he gave away a little too much, especially that last little snippet (if you haven’t got there yet, don’t ruin it for yourself). It also helped reassure me that despite Bane having only a fraction of his titan based body, Tom Hardy is still going to make him an enemy to remember AND that Anne Hathaway will indeed make a shit Catwoman.

Virals Worth Spreading

We’ve just had Deborah Kornfilt from TED come in and talk to us about the Ted ecosystem, conferences and the future. Unfortunately the talk about TED talks was not nearly as inspiring as any TED talk of the past. However… this is not a blog post about the latest future facing inspirational invention…  This is about Aliens.

A couple of days ago Ridley Scott released a viral video for his upcoming Alien prequel Prometheus. I don’t think there was an ad agency involved, I think he conceived and expertly executed the viral himself. He did, after all, use to be one of the best in the business (Apparently, Ridley gave his son Luke Scott a shot at directing this viral short, this has not been confirmed). This viral short sees Guy Pearce as Peter Weyand, CEO of Weyland Industries (That is an actual website, I’d keep an eye on that if I were you), presenting a TED talk in the year 2023, announcing the future and claiming, “We are the Gods now”:

TED not only endorsed Scott’s return to roots by allowing him to use the official TED branding, but they’ve also been so kind as to post this Q&A with screenwriter and producer Damon Lindelof, in which he talks about the blurry lines between science and fiction and his surprise at getting Ted onboard (well worth a read).

A lovely script is compliment with some excellent touches, especially the Parrott style Drone that leads Weyland out or  the text tweet that appears in the background at around the 53seconds mark.

The copy seems to read:

“Where’s Weyland going with this? Thought fire was for all mankind. He’s probably franchised using it now. #TED http://bit.ly/tgwQvj

The link leads to an Apple trailer for the upcoming film.

As a viral I think it really works, I for one am now EVEN MORE excited about it’s early June release date. And I will be watching the Weyland Corps website, I’ll let you know if anything happens.
