Here's a new poster for Iron Man 3 that was spotted in a move theater recently featuring Tony Stark (Robert Downy Jr.) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) looking like they've been through hell. There's also a leaked version of the trailer out there that's supposed to be officially released tomorrow, but I didn't want to post it because it's just an incredibly bad, low resolution version that's not in English, so you might as well just wait until tomorrow for the real thing.
Yahoo! Movies also recently talked to Downey Jr. about the movie where he talked about the challenges of working in the Heads-Up Display (HUD), which is used for scenes when you can't see Downey's face behind his mask. Apparently it's the toughest part of playing Iron Man for him. Even though he loves the job he says, "you wouldn't know from my disposition every time I have to go in and work, because it's like irritation therapy."
He then goes into more details about the process of shooting those scenes involving the HUD. Those scenes are actually shot after he's finished filming the action scenes, so he's got to act really intense when he's recording them alone in a studio, like he's really in the heat of battle. "When you do the HUD work, usually it's kind of the last thing in the schedule. And you're going back and essentially leaving the movie again in close-up, tired." He went on to tease a possible sequence from Iron Man 3 involving Pepper Potts saying,
I don't like, [as himself] 'All right. What's happening now?' [as the director] 'Oh, the most important woman in your life is falling off crane into a fiery pit. Okay? So, let's just rehearse once and then we'll do it about 10 or 12 times until the camera is right and you've given enough.' They're just screaming direction at you... I like the scenes. I like the action.
Downey Jr. then goes on to talk about wearing the actual Iron Man armor on set, saying that the new costume is lighter and more flexible. But he also says, "There is no comfortable version of it, so it's kind of like, 'Hey, don't you think these bamboo chutes are actually a little less rough on the cuticle until they get down to the nerve?'"
Stay tuned for the new Iron Man 3 trailer tomorrow! It will hit at 9am Pacific Time, and we'll have it up on the site as soon as it hits!
