Three new hi-res images from Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 were made available by Disney today. While the pics show off the decidedly underpowered actors portraying their human roles, we do get to see Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Guy Pearce as Adrian Killian, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes and, of course, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. Also starring Ben Kingsley, Jon Favreau and Rebecca Hall, Iron Man 3 opens May 3rd. Hit the jump to see the new images.
We’ve got a round-up of Iron Man 3 stuff for you this morning. First up, a new character poster has been released, and this time the focus is on a very solemn Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow).

We also get a clear shot of Don Cheadle tucked safely away within his Iron Patriot/War Machine armor.
Also starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, Guy Pearce, Jon Favreau and James Badge Dale, Iron Man 3 opens internationally in IMAX 3D theaters starting April 25th with a wide domestic release on May 3.

Since production details regarding director Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 first started to trickle out back before filming began, we’ve known that Marvel has been planning to shoot some scenes in China. This decision made perfect sense as the film’s villain, played by Ben Kingsley, was rumored to be the half-Chinese half-English comics character The Mandarin, and China’s DMG Entertainment was mulling a co-production deal with Marvel on the film. Filming on the superhero sequel started up this past June in North Carolina, but throughout the long shoot filming never moved over to China.
Now it appears that, just five months out from release, Black and Co. are gearing up to do some additional filming in Beijing as Chinese actor Wang Xuequi has joined the cast. Hit the jump for more details, including a couple of new images.
A Japanese trailer for director Shane Black’s upcoming sequel Iron Man 3 has landed online. There doesn’t appear to be any substantial amount of new footage, but instead looks to be a different edit of the teaser trailer that debuted a few weeks ago. This one plays up the post-Avengers aspect a bit more, and puts the action/destruction front and center.

China is already a huge market for American-made films, but looks to increase its purchasing power by expanding the number of American-Chinese co-productions in the coming year. Chief among them is the Marvel movie Iron Man 3, which is currently filming. However, a snafu occurred recently when questions were raised as to what exactly comprised a “co-production.” The two sides hashed it out at a joint film summit held at UCLA on Monday and things look prosperous for the future.
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Sir Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall and Jon Favreau, Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 is slated to open May 3rd, 2013. Hit the jump for more on the American-Chinese co-production of Iron Man 3.
By now you’ve surely seen the first trailer for director Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Sir Ben Kingsley. You might have even glanced at the collection of images we pulled from said trailer to get a closer look at the images hidden within. Now, we’re going to take those images and speculate as to what they might mean for the plot. What’s up with War Machine’s paint job? Why is Iron Man all up in people’s faces and being a sleep creep? Why does an over-sized bunny appear to have an arc-reactor? What’s the deal with the Mandarin’s rings? Marvel’s Kevin Feige has some insight to share on that last question. Hit the jump to see the answers.

The first trailer for Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 dropped earlier today, and it’s pretty great. The big take away is that this looks to be a surprisingly dark entry into the series, especially for the wise-cracking Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). But there are also some cool details in the trailer you may have missed. What’s with the tattoo on the back of the Mandarin’s neck? What happened to poor Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau)? Who is Iron Patriot beating up on? There are also plenty of cool images that prove Black, even though he only directed one movie before this one (albeit an excellent one), knows how to shoot action.

The first trailer for director Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 has been released and it’s looking a lot darker for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) this time around. Following the events of The Avengers, Stark is a bit more shaken up than one would have expected. His nightmares plague him with sleepless nights and constant fear that harm will befall the people he cares about. And it’s looking like his greatest technological achievement will become his biggest threat. At least until the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) makes his appearance in grand fashion (though I’m not 100% sold on his accent).

Six new images have been released plus comments from Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about the upcoming sequel. Speaking about the involvement of Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), Feige tells USA Today, “That’s one of the things we love about (Tony) It is not a new girl in every film. Pepper Potts is an incredibly important part of his life and his evolution as a hero. She plays a very big part in this film.”

Last week, an arc reactor popped up on the official Facebook page for Iron Man 3 that promised to unveil a sneak preview of the film’s official trailer once the page hit enough “likes.” It appears that the threshold has been cleared, as a very brief teaser for the trailer has now been unveiled. We get flashes of Tony talking to the press, the Mark XLVII armor in action, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts in a precarious position, and even a tease of Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin. Again, it’s very brief, but fans clamoring for even the tiniest of looks at the first film in Marvel’s Phase Two slate should be sufficiently enticed by this teaser.

We were recently treated to an official synopsis for Marvel’s upcoming sequel Thor: The Dark World that shed a light on the story of the godly follow-up, and now the studio has released a full synopsis for Iron Man 3. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige previously noted that the third entry in the Iron Man franchise would metaphorically get Tony Stark “back to the cave,” in a place where he’s stripped of everything and left with only his intelligence to fight his way back. This synopsis teases just that, as Stark finds himself on a sort of revenge mission after his “personal world is destroyed” by his enemy (Ben Kingsley’s The Mandarin). The synopsis also promises an answer to a question that’s central to Stark’s character: does the suit make the man or does the man make the suit?
Hit the jump to read the full synopsis. Directed by Shane Black, the film also stars Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau, and Guy Pearce. Iron Man 3 opens in 3D on May 3rd, 2013.

Writer/director Wes Anderson has a close relationship with the wonderful folks at the Criterion Collection, and now one of his films that previously got the Criterion DVD treatment has finally gotten the Blu-ray upgrade. When The Royal Tenenbaums opened in 2001, it marked Anderson’s first major film as a “known” director. He burst onto the scene with 1996’s Bottle Rocket, but it was Rushmore that really launched his career. As such, The Royal Tenenbaums came with some pretty lofty expectations. Anderson honed the script with his partner Owen Wilson and went about assembling a truly remarkable ensemble cast. The results are kind of a mixed bag of humor, drama, and wit, but the film works more often than it doesn’t.

Two pieces of casting tonight:
- Gwyneth Paltrow is in negotiations to star the adaptation of the foodie memoir Blood, Bones & Butter.
- Marton Csokas has joined the cast of Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah and will star in the DirecTV series Rogue.
