Earlier tonight, the viral ad campaign that has been going on for Iron Man 2 for the past week culminated in a ticking timer on www.starksecretconfessionrevealed.com. And what was waiting on the other side of the clock? The new trailer for Iron Man 2.
The trailer’s now up at Apple in full HD glory, but you can also check it out below the jump. The trailer teases a lot of what we can expect from the new film — namely, plenty of high tech battlin’. Mickey Rourke’s Whiplash makes a significant and splashy debut, while Don Cheadle’s War Machine also squeezes in his hero shot. All in all, a fairly epic trailer. But it’s no fun listening to me talk about it, hit the jump to see it for yourself!Read»
Come to think of it, the Sherlock Holmes trailers that we’ve seen have been a bit of a mess plot-wise; that is, I still don’t have a very clear idea of just what the plot is. Mark Strong’s some sort of nefarious, perhaps supernatural villain, and Holmes and Watson are on the case? Anyway, they’re definitely selling chemistry and style more than anything else, especially between Robert Downey, Jr.’s Holmes and Jude Law’s Watson. And you know what? It’s enough. It totally works, and I’m ready to get to the theater just to see the two play off of each other.
The trailer finally gives Rachel McAdams something to do, though I still feel like her presence in the movie is being undersold here. Her dry delivery towards the end is one of the best moments in the trailer, and I think she’ll be just as integral a piece to Sherlock Holmes‘ entertainment and success as all the bare-knuckle brawls and one-liners.

Well, turns out France’s CanalPlus did a set visit too, and they actually go a little more in depth to the going-ons of the sequel. They sit down with star Robert Downey, Jr, and director Jon Favreau, and both have some interesting things to say. We get a clear idea of their approach in returning to Tony Stark’s world, and their hopes and anxieties about following up the critical and commercial success of the first film with a worthy sequel. Plus we see a lot of new behind-the-scenes footage, though (sadly) no actual new scenes from the movie.
