I’m a sucker for depressing movie trailers, especially when you know the good guys are eventually going to prevail in the end. In the upcoming Iron Man 3, Tony Stark looks like he’s in for a sh*t show. A mysterious terrorist named The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) wages war on Stark and his alter ego Iron Man by obliterating his mansion and apparently stealing his suits, and that’s just the beginning.
The teaser trailer contains depressing moment after depressing moment, signifying a darker and grittier picture than what we’ve seen previously. While the movie sees the return of Robert Downey Jr., Gwenyth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and other regulars, it does feature a new director: Shane Black, whose only other film is the criminally underrated Robert Downey Jr. thriller Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
