It should be good if they don't make it into Robert Downey Jr. the movie like they did Iron Man 2. Since all of the advertising is focused on him, I'm not getting my hopes up.

Yeah, I the first one was much better and to me, this one looks more like the 1st than the 2nd in terms of storyline.

Was he dual wielding a gun and a repulsor near the end of the trailer?

That was pretty awesome

I thought they made Iron Man 3 already, didn't they call it "The Avengers"?

“These findings are just the latest evidence of the economic benefit that film and television production has meant for North Carolina,” said Senator Chris Dodd, Chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America. “Thanks to a reliable and refundable production incentive, North Carolinians have been able to reap the benefits of direct spending and job creation across the state. Marvel’s Iron Man 3, like so many productions that choose to shoot in North Carolina, generated hundreds of millions of dollars in spending for local businesses in dozens of communities and thousands of jobs for North Carolina workers.”

Iron Man 3 received $20 million in support through state tax incentives. This investment by the state resulted in the following economic benefits:

· $8.99 in economic output for every dollar of tax credit received by the production.

· $6.50 in Gross State Product for every dollar of tax credit received by the production.

· 102 full-time equivalent positions for every $1 million in tax credit received by the production.

· $5.20 in labor income for every dollar of tax credit received by the production.

In addition, several of the businesses hired directly by the production have reported the film to have had a significant effect during the filming period. For example, Master Craftsmen Services, a furniture restoration company, reported to WRAL that Iron Man 3 represented ten to fifteen percent of the company’s business the year in which filming occurred, and Tidewater Storage Trailers reported that roughly ten percent of its business was generated by the production of Iron Man 3 in the first six months of 2012.

Don't let that trailer fool you, the movie isn't nearly as good as the trailer is. 

 

 

Ben Kingsley isn't really even playing the Mandarin. The entire first half of the movie is so awesome with Kingsley playing this badass chilling terrorist, and then half way through the movie it's revealed that Mandarin is really just an actor and decoy that Guy Pearce's character created because he needed a distraction.  That twist completely ruined the movie for me.

 

 

There's more reasons than that why it's bad too. There's a ton of plot holes, Tony Stark is probably only in the Iron Man suit for about 5 minutes in the entire movie, the final fight had a really WTF moment, and I'm willing to bet that most people are going to think that the extremis soldiers are silly.

According to Rottentomatoes.com, out of 74 reviews from professional film critics, 89% were positive which is pretty damn high for any film let alone a comic book movie.

 

But I'll be sure to keep my expectations tamed.

    • I like the use of props like in that old MTV allstar game where there was like 2 additional baskets above the main hoop. Could be interesting.

    • It seems like every year around draft time, huddle math kicks into full effect.  Somehow by puck 8 the top 20 prospects will magically be gone. Always amazes me.  Unless you are trading up to 1 draft a Peppers or Cam franchise can't miss prospect I don't see why this team would trade up with a pick in the top 10.  Use last years slump to your advantage and build your core.  Get 2-3 starting caliber (not necessary starters on this team but starting caliber) NFL players and some depth guys.  I like Fournette but there are other guys that can fill a role on this team who will be available.  No need to throw the draft away. Just my opinion. 
    • Oh hell, make it 28 points. Boy, the failcons could have used that.
