Hi, I Feel Like Mr. Moviephone!

Hrrm. I’m beginning to detect a trend here. Yet another movie related post. This is the fourth or fifth in as many days. There are times when I’m too enamoured by pop culture. I guess this is one of those times.

This time around my infatuation revolves around the trailer for the new Iron Man movie starring Robert Downey Jr.. It looks suitably spiffy and I’m looking forward to this one. While I don’t expect it to be along the same calibre as the first Spiderman movie, here’s hoping that at the very least it’ll be better than the Inedible Bulk. The less said about that one the better.

So without further ado, here’s a link to the trailer @ Apple because Youtube doesn’t seem to have a version up yet.

Iron Man

So is anyone else surprised they used Sabbath’s Iron Man in the trailer? I’m certainly not.

  1. I was all set to rant against the cheesiness of the Sabbath song in the trailer, then I watched it, and I liked it.

    Downey seems like he’ll be perfect in the role.

  2. Yeah, I was a little concerned when I first thought about whether they’d include the Sabbath song myself, but it works. It’s not overdone or out of place. Downey does seem right for the role. He’s got the smarmy, arrogance that Stark is known for down pat, plus he’s already got the inside track on the whole addiction thing to be honest he’s pretty much “the guy” for this role. The fact that he can act is just gravy if you ask me.
