The funniest website on the Internet, The Onion, they’ve posted a video clip with the headline “Wildly Popular ‘Iron Man’ Trailer To Be Adapted Into Full-Length Film.” A hilarious take on the endless marketing blitz for the movie that is just 2 and a half weeks away.
The video is very funny, including describing Tony Stark as a “cock sure billionaire.”
Even the ticker on the bottom had made cracking up. “Yahoo! Tries to Find Ways to Compete with Google by Googling ‘Ways to Compete with Google.’”
The movie was recently screened for exhibitors and the first early review is incredibly positive:
I can report the movie is terrific. It is a thinking person’s superhero film with more character development than special effects and action scenes (though there are plenty of those which are nicely balanced so we get involved in the story rather than bored by non-stop effects.). Downey is terrific…funny, smart and charming…and very buff. Paltrow seems right out of 60’s superhero comics or Money Penny from early Bond: proper and subservient assistant who is smart below the surface and more than a little enamored of her boss.
