Happy Trails Hans: Iron Man 2
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.
