'Iron Man 3' Trailer Calls For Back Up

Plus, The Mandarin speaks! Like a dork!! When Marvel brought 1980's action auteur Shane Black on board to shake up Tony Stark's world, we were curious to see what he'd bring to the table. Now we know. If nothing else, and the film turns out to be a disappointment, at least we have this trailer. My favorite parts: - Stark firing his glove as a gun while also firing an actual gun - Gwyneth Paltrow hanging out around explosions in a sports bra - The Mandarin talking like Toby Radloff from American Splendor - Iron Man's army May 4th!

Robert Downey Jr. Is Acting All Creepy In Extended 'Iron Man 3' Spot

Extended look. Careful what you wish for. We've been hoodwinked. After viewing a portion of the thrilling air rescue in last night's Iron Man 3 Super Bowl spot, we were offered an extended look at the movie's Facebook page. What we got was Robert Downey Jr. staring us down for what felt like 45 minutes. In one sense, we did get an "extended look," just not the one we really hoped for. It's like Marvel is a double-crossing genie all of a sudden.


Honest Trailers: 'Iron Man 3'

Honesty is always the best policy. Especially when it's funny. By the time you get to the third installment of a film, no matter how original the material, or tight the team is, there are going to be some inconsistencies, redundancies, and just general familiarity that piss people of. And that's just in the base case. If it's a superhero film, and you strip the hero away of his superpowers, you're going to feel the wrath. This is our wrath for Iron Man 3 starring Robert Downey Jr., largely as someone other than Iron Man.


'Iron Man 3' Looks Awesome But Suspiciously Like 'Lethal Weapon 2'

Tony Stark is getting to old for this shit. Tony Stark has made his fair share of enemies. At least a hundred in fact and that number doesn't consider his non-human enemies from other dimensions. That kind of hate takes a toll and Iron Man 3 finds the billionaire superhero losing sleep. His most dangerous enemy, The Mandarin, reveals himself and makes things personal by destroying his pussy palace. Just like when those South Africans destroyed Rigg's sweet oceanfront trailer in Lethal Weapon 2. Shane Black, we see what you're doing here.


Iron Man Teaches How To Kill A Helicopter With A Piano

And now you know. We've seen helicopters killed in several different ways. There's the tried and true shoot-it-with-a-missile, or trick it into flying into another helicopter/too close to power lines. We've seen helicopters killed by crashing tail first into hockey rinks. We've even John McClane kill a helicopter by launching a cop car at it. Tony Stark, however, is not one to be outdone. In this clip from Iron Man 3, he displays perhaps the most impressive helicopter slaughter yet -- killing it with a rocket-propelled piano. Here, writer/director Shane Black proves he still knows his way around action. It's like a super-powered version the surfboard scene from Lethal Weapon 2, proving that writer/director Shane Black still knows how to craft a memorable action scene. Your move, The Expendables 3.

Ben Kingsley Wants Ryan Reynolds' Body In 'Selfless' Trailer

Join the club. Mmm-rrrawww!!! Imagine being stuck in the very gross and old body of Sir Ben Kingsley. All of your attempts to throw epic campus ragers would be met with raised eyebrows and skeeved out coeds. To remedy this, Selfless has Kingsley implant his brain into the empty vessel that is Ryan Reynolds' body. Thus, he gets to enjoy all of the motor-boating the healthy young body affords him. And he gets to get out on the lake too. No release date has been announced but I'm already amped for the sequel where Patrick Stewart mind-melds with Kal Penn in Selfless: The Rise of Taj.


'The Three Stooges' Trailer Is Exactly What We Thought It Would Be, Yet Somehow Still Disappointing

*Sigh* What were you expecting? Whatever thin premises guide the Farrelly Brothers' adaptation of The Three Stooges are lost in this 90-second trailer, but there's plenty of physical comedy, true to the original. Not much else can be said about the clip, except that it's got a steady stream of strange cameos, and it is set in modern times. Though I'm not Stooges expert, the lead performances seem to run from good to great in their adherence to the source material. And the Farelly's smartly busted the film up into three 30-minute segments to prevent fatigue from a dragging plot. Despite those steps, the film just looks like a dud. Perhaps if I had a couple kids and wanted to veer away from the standard animated fare, I would take them to see this film, but I think that the whole concept of The Three Stooges just doesn't appeal to the past couple generations. So there goes about 60% of film audiences. Maybe I'm wrong, and people will appreciate the throwback and attention to detail, but it's been my experience that most audiences don't "appreciate" shit. This isn't their type of dumb physical comedy. My hope was that the Farrelly's would bring their irreverent humor of bygone films like Dumb and Dumber to this gig, but they seem hell bent on sticking to the old formula, save for some very bizarre cameos. Anyway. Watch the trailer, and, who knows, if you're also not seeing The Three Stooges on opening night, maybe we'll run into each other.


Robert Downey Jr. Spits On a Dog In New 'Due Date' Trailer

Warner Bros has dropped the new trailer for Todd Phillips's Due Date. We get a ton more footage in this one, as well as Robert Downey Jr. spitting directly in the face of an adorable French Bulldog. The outright gall! In the film, Downey Jr. plays an expectant first time father who's forced to go on a cross-country road trip with an aspiring actor (Zach Galifiankis) to get home to his wife (Michelle Monaghan) before she pops out the kid. It's basically Planes, Trains, and Automobiles with a French Bulldog, but that John Hughes classic rocks and hopefully this road trip flick will too. Check out the trailer after the jump...
