Tuesday Tease: IRON MAN 3 Trailer Debuts on Internet, Marvel Geeks Won’t Get Anything Done Today

Official Synopsis: Unknown at the moment. We did see The Mandarin wearing his 10 stylish rings so we’re guessing that plot is on.

What We Learned: A bad, bad thing happened in Marvel Cinematic Universe New York City and Iron Man feels he’s to blame. You know, Marvel Cinematic Universe is a lot to type when talking about this new shared universe Marvel studios has managed to assemble. The Marvel comics multiverse is vast and ever expanding. The primary comics universe is considered to be Earth-616. We’re taking it upon ourselves to name this new shared Marvel Cinematic Universe ‘Earth-Awesome.’ Now that that’s settled, back to the trailer review. We’re guessing this bad, bad thing has nothing to do with the never ending horde of aliens riding leviathans that tried to take over Earth-Awesome(it’s growing on you) in the spring of 2012.

Tony Stark has insomnia/night terrors. This is understandable since his spare suits get “BLOWED UP!”, his house attacked from the sky and, of course, that mysterious thing that happens in NYC.

Ben Kingsley is The Mandarin and is doing his best to not sound Chinese at all. Which is odd since Earth-616 Mandarin takes a certain pride in his culture.

Why hello there Iron Patriot who could not possibly be Norman Osborne since movie SPIDER-MAN, and his characters, are still owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Why We’ll Watch: The trailer alone looks 5 times better than IRON MAN 2 turned out to be. Shane Black makes his directorial debut into the Earth-Awesome universe. Mr Black, if you don’t know, directed KISS KISS BANG BANG. And if you haven’t seen this film you stop reading this article right now. Rent it. Put it in your brain. Then try to tell us Black wasn’t a damn fine choice to do the third Iron Man. BTW Black’s screenwriting credits include the original LETHAL WEAPON, THE MONSTER SQUAD and THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT.

When’s it coming? Despite what the above trailer says, every other place we found says IRON MAN 3 will drop on May 2013.

Tuesday Tease: The New MAD MEN Season 5 Promo Poster is In, Don Draper Ogles a Naked Mannequin

The Mad Men minimalist teaser poster made the rounds mid January 2012.

Now we have this “nonverbal representation” to whet our appetites until Mad Men returns to our collective TVs. Series creator Matthew Weiner had this to say about the image in the New York Times.

“This is a dreamlike image,” Mr. Weiner said, likening it to work of the Italian artist Giorgio de Chirico, who specialized in surreal, mannequin-like figures.

The image is “a nonverbal representation of where my head is at and where the show will be,” Mr. Weiner said.

“By the end of the season,” he said, “I guarantee you’ll know what it is about.”

A “nonverbal representation” eh? We see the glorious previous 4 seasons of Mad Men, a show about high-powered, fast tallking advertising executives in 1960s New York City, was not a fluke.

A Damn Fine Short SciFi-Film: Aaron Sims’ ARCHETYPE , ‘Your Memories are Just a Glitch’

Official Synopsis

RL7 is an eight-foot tall combat robot that goes on the run after malfunctioning with vivid memories of once being human. As its creators and the military close in, RL7 battles its way to uncovering the shocking truth behind its mysterious visions and past.
Directed by: Aaron Sims
starring: Robert Joy (Land of the Dead, CSI:NY) and David Anders (Heroes, 24).

What We Learned: Special effects and animation veteran Aaron Sims released his $0 budget and completely unfunded labor of love, ARCHETYPE, on the Internets January 20, 2012. After watching it the first time we decided on the spot that ARCHETYPE is pretty fucking cool!

Like most Hollywood movies, all the usual tropes are covered. Unlike most Hollywood big action fare Aaron Sims made those tropes engaging and worth watching. We’ve already viewed this short more times than we care to mention.

Seven minutes is just not enough.

We hope this taste of the ARCHETYPE world generates enough buzz and gains financial backers so that he can fully visualize his labor of love. Note: we’re almost certain the concept art of Sims complete vision is featured in the credits. Stick around and watch those for once.

Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone! This has been a labor of love on a budget of $0 and it makes it all worth while when we see other poeple responding to it. Thank you! – Aaron Sims

IRON SKY Finally Gets a Trailer, Sets Premiere Date at Berlin International Film Festival

Iron Sky Teaser Poster

Official Synopsis

As World War II comes to an end in 1945, Hans Kammler and other German scientists make a breakthrough in anti-gravity research. From a secret base in the Antarctic, Nazi spaceships are sent to the “dark side” of the Moon to establish the military base “Schwarze Sonne”.[3] Their plan is to build a powerful fleet and return to conquer Earth. The film is set in the year 2018 when their descendants finally return.

What We Learned: The Nazis weren’t wiped off the face of the planet in 1945 they went TO THE MOON! And holy crap the calendar day they’ve set to return to this great Earth is 2018. Wait, did that Space Nazi scientist just poo-poo Steve Jobs technology?

Why We’ll Watch: The gears for IRON SKY began turning in 2006. It took six years to put this absurd, fantastic idea onto film and deliver it to the unsuspecting masses. We’ve had an eye on it ever since the first teaser was shared in 2008 via Internet Demigod, Warren Ellis. Blind Spot Pictures, the production company responsible for this admirable determination, has another science fiction, comedy film called STAR WRECK:THE PIRKINING(2005) under its belt. We have not seen the Star Wreck film nor have we heard much about it. Thus we can’t make a judgment from their previous work. We can say the trailer has piqued our interest and we’re determined to know how these motherhumping Space Nazis get their butts kicked back to the dark side of the moon or beyond.

When’s it coming? It debuts at the Berlin International Film Festival or Berlinale on February 11, 2012. We gotta say that BLind Spot Productions has great brass ones releasing a film about Nazis in Berlin.

The second teaser announces a movie launch date of April 4, 2012.

That Extended Cut of the AVENGERS Trailer Most of You Have Already Seen is Here, Worth Talking About Again

Official Synopsis

Nick Fury and the international agency S.H.I.E.L.D. bring together a team of super humans to form The Avengers to help save the Earth from Loki & his various membered army.

What We Learned: Nick Fury believes in Harvey Dent heroes. Loki doesn’t seem to be bound to a scientists mortal form anymore. Tony Stark has iron balls to talk smack to, what for all intents and purposes, is a god. Of course, he’s probably drunk during that meeting. HULK SMASH PUNY FUTURE JET!

Why We’ll Watch: We’ll watch because of all the snark we mentioned above and then some. Seeing Marvel finally step into the light of making entertaining movies from their characters has been a joy for this Marvel zombie. Sure there have been a few mis-steps but with the House of Ideas running their own movie studio it became easier for them to keep their continuity in line. Although, it did get in their way a few other times. The loss of Jon Favreau and Ed Norton will be felt. But the machine, as always, lurches on.

Now if only Marvel studios could get back the rights to Spider-Man, The X-Men and the Fantastic Four. We could get a good sized mega-movie by throwing them back into movie continuity.

Watch the trailer below the cut.

When’s it coming? May 4, 2012
