Tuesday’s Top Trailer: Iron Man 3

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

Iron Man 3 – Opening May 3, 2013

Audiences are just going to have to get used to many, many Marvel movies in the coming years. With the success of “The Avengers” earlier this year, a sequel is already in the works, and the individual superheroes featured in that film are also slated to have their franchises continued. Out of the many films that feed into that megaspectacular, the first “Iron Man” was probably the best, and its sequel is pretty great too. Most of that is due to Robert Downey Jr.’s exceptionally energetic performance as Tony Stark, the egomaniac who very publicly doubles as superhero-in-a-suit Iron Man. Returning to the fold are Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts and Don Cheadle as James Rhodes, also known as War Machine, as well as Jon Favreau in the role of Happy Hogan, relinquishing directorial duties to Shane Black, whose only feature film experience is 2005’s “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” which just happens to have starred Downey. Mickey Rourke was an excellent villain for the second film, and now we have Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley, two fantastic new additions. Rebecca Hall and James Badge Dale are also on board for this thrill ride, which includes plenty of explosions and even features some superb shots of the suit seemingly operating by itself. This is one blockbuster that’s better the louder it is, and I, along with many fans, I’m sure, can’t wait for May.
