Paramount Pictures has released the 2008 preview with a look at some of their biggest films arriving throughout 2008. They've got quite an incredible line-up and some exciting new pictures to go along with it. Paramount is the one studio (along with Warner Brothers) that seems to know how to do it right, from marketing to choice in films. In 2007 they released Transformers, Disturbia, and Zodiac, just to name a few, and in July they had already passed the $1 billion mark. Read onwards for some new photos from Iron Man, Cloverfield, The Ruins, and Revolutionary Road, all arriving in 2008.
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment's big screen adaptation of Marvel's legendary Super Hero Iron Man will launch into theaters on May 2, 2008. Oscar nominee Robert Downey Jr. stars as Tony Stark/Iron Man in the story of a billionaire industrialist and genius inventor who is kidnapped and forced to build a devastating weapon. Instead, using his intelligence and ingenuity, Tony builds a high-tech suit of armor and escapes captivity. When he uncovers a nefarious plot with global implications, he dons his powerful armor and vows to protect the world as Iron Man. The film also stars Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow and Oscar nominees Terrence Howard and Jeff Bridges and is directed by Jon Favreau.
