appears to have been released. 2 minutes and 30 seconds. I found it on good ol' RT. Here is a link, it's Trailer #2, the one at the top.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/iron_man/trailers.php

For those who haven't seen anything about this movie, it's starring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, an alcoholic billionaire playboy. More specifically, it would appear that he is an arms manufacturer in this movie. Gwyneth Paltrow appears as his secretary/girlfriend Virginia Potts.

So yeah, this movie looks like it'll be a good action flick. However, the dialog in the trailer was a bit on the cheesy side, which worries me a bit. However, I counted at least two scenes where Tony was imbibing so we know they've got the character of Tony Stark downpat.

Who's excited for this movie, and what do you lot think about it?

    Personally I absolutely love the what they've done effects wise for the armour. It looks fantastic, the airbrakes were an especially nice touch.

    Hehe. The trailers for this just keep getting better. I can't wait for it to come out.

    I myself am personally very excited for this movie. I've been a fan of Iron Man for many year's, and I believe that Favreu can pull off a good job at Directing this film. Robert Downy Jr is the perfect cast for Stark seeing as his past pretty much mimics what Stark did in his.

    Besides Batman, Spiderman, X-Men, and Superman (For those like me who did enjoy the film), this might rank up there as being a great Movie, and I personally hope it does. I'm also very excited for the video game, it can be horrible, but I will still buy it, just to play as Iron Man.

    Looks like a fun action movie. I have no real previous experience reading Iron Man outside of a few Civil War comics and the Avengers movies, so it'll pretty much be a fresh experience to me. I'm hoping it's not too serious, and the cheesy dialogue so far looks good to me.

    Seriously. Look at the scene where he's out with the two women at the restaurant, or acting drunk to get people out of his party. He's not charismatic because Batman's a fucking single-minded psychopath that watched his parents killed in front of him. Bale played the role perfectly.

    And the suit just doesn't seem as natural as it should, if that makes sense.
    I dunno, we'll see. The game looks to be fun, atleast. I just don't want another "THE HULK".

    I hope you're talking about the Director's Cut, as that's the only watchable version of the film, and all in all was pretty good. But for me it wouldn't rank even in my top 3 superhero movies. The theatrical version just gave me a migrane.

    As for Iron Man, I was sold on the first trailer. But after watching the 2nd and learning that Sam Jackson is Nick Fury (certainly not who I was expecting) this is easily a first day viewer for me. Here's hoping there's a midnight showing in my area come May.

    I'd say Sam as Nick is pretty expectable. They obviously modeled Nick Fury after Samuel L. in the Ultimate marvel line, and it's not like Sam wouldn't dig it.

    I'll give you that and raise you the scene in the Ultimates where they were all talking about who would play them in a movie. Tony Stark picked Robert Downey, Jr.!

    I think RDJr is my main selling point on this film. I have a love for comic book movies, but more often then not they are pretty bad. RDJr is the perfect Tony Stark and I think that puts this one over the tipping point to "Must See". The trailers are a mixed bag, though.

    "Sam, listen, we'd like you to play a handsome, likeable army officer/spy. Oh, also, it'd be a plus if you could somehow come off as a badass."

    I'm looking forward to the movie. They seem to be keeping to mostly the cannon from the different Marvel universes and the list of actors is encouraging so hopefully there'll be interesting bits besides Iron Man blowing things up.

    I am SO freaking psyched for this movie, have been since it's announcement. Iron Man was another of my fav Marvel heroes, so I was really expecting quite a bit out of this, and they haven't let me down from the Trailers so far. Hell Iron Monger Vs Iron Man will be worth it alone! Downey as we all know fits the character perfectly, this could easily be a franchise if it does well. Probably the next best to Spidey, although I did enjoy Daredevil and the FF despite their flaws. Only one that fell flat for me was the Punisher. Hell I even liked The Hulk, but the remake is hopefully more amped up.

    Looks awesome! Just needs a little more of the iron man song instead of just the snippet at the end. Although I suppose I'm biased, since I'd go to a movie that was nothing but things blowing up with that song in the background.

    I don't really read comics so I wouldn't know, but just because a movie is based on a comic doesn't mean the writing has to be cheesetastic. For example, Spider-Man 2, which was pretty much universally acclaimed by critics as being a really great movie, not just a really great comic book movie. It had great writing.

    I also like Ang Lee's Hulk. It had a lot of stupid stuff in it, and it was far too long for its own good, but I definitely think it's better than Daredevil or Spider-Man 3.

    Yeah...I've watched all 3 of them and even Spider-Man 3, lame as it was, was passable. Hulk was just abysmal in every possible sense. Bad CGI, bad/boring script and just terribly not good.

    Oh hell yeah it was. But it was pretty highly regarded by a lot of critics, and it had the occasional little gem like this:
    Everybody loves a hero. People line up for them, cheer them, scream their names. And years later, they'll tell how they stood in the rain for hours just to get a glimpse of the one who taught them how to hold on a second longer. I believe there's a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams.

    I may have gotten slightly misty-eyed while she was delivering that speech. So it is possible for a comic book movie to mix cheesiness and sincerity.

    The only line that struck me as cheesy was the "This is not the worst thing you've caught me doing" one. Everything else was just your average popcorn action flix variety.

    I'm excited for this. Normally I'd rather they keep the Stark scenes to a minimum and focus more on the actual Iron Man, since Hollywood is mask-a-phobic and all, but Downey is frigging awesome in this. If the plot and script end up sucking ass, he'll still carry it. This movie cannot suck ass.

    Oh, and am I the only one who laughed out loud at that ending scene with the tiny rocket? Amazing.
