Iron Man 3 has yet another killer clip with which to bombard us before we start the weekend. Indeed, it seems the cycle of movie news has temporarily stood still while the Iron Avenger's solo sequel dominates box-offices in just about every place around the world except here in 'Murica. -- Thankfully, we 'Muricans are being somewhat satiated with these sneak peak free sample clips until the film hits next week.
While we just got a dramatic piece with Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark bearing his soul, this gravity-grilling clip thankfully ups the adrenaline into overdrive. (Although sneakier fans checking foreign video sites may have already seen it.) That dastardly clandestine d**k, The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) has somehow arranged for Air Force One to get popped open right at 30,000 feet like a Coke can that was just in a paint mixer. As (presumably) William Sadler's President Ellis, the crew, and various other bureaucratic personnel plummet to their impending deaths, in comes Iron Man ready to turn saving lives into a massive mini-game of gallantry.
The action is certainly an exciting contrast to the last clip and we even learn that the latest Iron Man armor, the Mark XLII has the outrageous contingency feature of electrifying nerves in the human hand to prevent it from opening. Bruce Wayne, it looks like someone just walked right up and stole your title for outrageously-absurd plot-driven gadgets so hard that you dropped your Shark Repellent Bat-Spray.
Iron Man 3 puts together a mid-air group hug when it hits theaters on May 3. The new clip is available for viewing and download on iTunes Trailers, but check out an embedded version below via ComicBookMovie.
