Messy New International Theatrical Iron Man 2 Poster Arrives
Paramount has debuted a brand new international "theatrical" poster for Iron Man 2 today on Yahoo. I'm not actually that impressed with the posters for this movie so far. The first two teaser posters were awesome, but the follow-up two character posters were pretty bland, and now this one arrives. It's the same design as the final posters from the first Iron Man movie, with a bunch of people thrown all over it, but I just think it's too messy. There's that distracting explosion and a semi-circle curve of actors Photoshopped together, plus other odd-sized elements pieced together. It's exciting, sure, but I don't think it's a great poster. Thoughts?
Iron Man 2 takes place only six months after Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) revealed his identity as Iron Man at the end of the first movie. Mickey Rourke stars as a powerful new Russian villain named Whiplash.
Iron Man 2 is directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Jon Favreau, who previously directed Made, Elf, Zathura, and the first Iron Man. The screenplay for this was also written by an actor, Justin Theroux, who became a screenwriter a few years ago and co-wrote the Tropic Thunder script. Paramount will be bringing Iron Man 2 to theaters everywhere starting on May 7th, 2010 this summer. See everyone in theaters in May for this!
