Happy Trails Hans: Iron Man 2

Time to get down to business again. This time with Tony Stark. For a weapons manufacturer who doesn’t like manufacturing weapons any more, he has manufactured a pretty impressive weapon…

If only all trailers began like this. A crowd shouting. A superhero making a superheroic entrance. And most important of all, AC/DC blaring. Welcome back Iron Man. This looks great… oh dear – now Scarlett Johansensensensen has turned up. Luckily, the trailer editor has decided not to let her speak. Instead we get Robert Downey Jr making quips.

Oooo, the music has changed now and we’re somewhere cold. Russia maybe. There’s some guy with a lot of newspaper clippings in front of him. Why is it that only psychos keep newspaper clippings? Hey, it’s Mickey Rourke, babbling about sharks and blood and water or something. Bottom line: he’s gonna kick Iron Man’s ass.

And he does that. At the Monaco race track. Good a place as any, I suppose. Mickey Rourke has big electrical wires coming out of his arms. That’s pretty lame. Like Doc Ock, but with a bad accent. Now he’s telling Tony Stark how he’s gonna be in trouble in an interrogation room. This is very Dark Knight. Now Mickey is talking with Sam Rockwell. Sam Rockwell is cool. He was even cool in Charlie’s Angels. He looks pretty cool here too. He too wants to kick Iron Man’s ass. Is his ass made of iron?

Anyway, Tony clearly decides he can’t go it alone with so many bad guys teaming up against him, so he calls in Don Cheadle. They put on their stupid looking suits and… AC/DC kicks in again! Now we’re getting somewhere. War Machine is almost as cool as Sam Rockwell. Samuel L Jackson was cool about 15 years ago.

I am excited. This is the best trailer I’ve seen in a long time.

VERDICT: Now I have a machine gun. Ho ho ho.five stars

  1. It looks good albeit it seems like they really piled in the excesses. We will see in a couple months I guess 🙂

  2. Still looks awesome, Hans. And now we get Sam Rockwell and a portable Iron Man suit. Can’t freakin’ wait.

  3. I love the suitcase.

    And the Sam Rockwell eating lunch in a ridiculous extravagant suit in an aircraft hanger bit. If I ever own a ridiculous extravagant suit, an aircraft hanger and a lunch, I am so doing that.

  4. yeah, looks freaking sweet Hans. have to say though, all I have seen are the trailers and I can already tell that Scarlet Johansen’s character is gonna be completely needless in this movie

  5. Agree with McG on ScarJo.

  6. Was anyone else shocked by how much Terrence Howard is starting to look like Don Cheadle… GEEZ!
    Howard is a dumbass… this is the best thing Marvel Studios had going now and it’s going to be a hit. I actually heard he got paid more than Downey, Jr. for the first one… and he walks away like a whiny punk. Makes me regret loving Hustle & Flow!
    I, personally, can’t wait. Will be hard to live up to the first one but I’ll give Favreau the benefit of the doubt. And, yes, McG is right… ScarJo is completely unnecessary. Her work in The Spirit alone should have her banned from all future comic book adaptations!!!

  7. when did people start calling her ScarJo?
    what was your one from a while back Aiden R…
    for Scorsese and DiCaprio….

  8. Scorpio is, BY FAR, the best I have ever heard. I just wrote ScarJo because her name has like 50 letters in it!

  9. ScarJo should stick to Woody Allen movies where she is needed more.

  10. mcarteratthemovies Says:

    I’m still hoping for the best with the Terrence Howard/Don Cheadle switch. Like both these guys, so who knows how this could play out?

    However, I am plain NOT HAPPY about Scarlett Johansson. I just don’t think she has any range. Of course, she looks hot in leather, so that settles that.
