Honest Trailers: Captain American – The Winter Soldier

https://i1.wp.com/i.vimeocdn.com/video/486194716_640.jpgHere is one of the latest from Screen Junkies’ “Honest Trailers”. And the funny thing is, it really makes me want to see it! But of course, it wouldn’t be HT if they didn’t mock a little bit, and the plot holes they identified are pretty well true. Much like with Iron Man 3, this movie begs the question “Where the hell are the rest of the Avengers?” Come to think of it, why do you even need other superheroes when some are already nigh-invulnerable?

But you know you shouldn’t ask such questions, because then you’d be treading on well-trod Batman vs. Superman territory. Too soon! One thing I will contest from the video though is where they say “your least favorite Avenger”. Everybody knows that’s Hawkeye! Not only is his superpower archery, he spent half the movie as the villain’s pawn, and the other half… well, shooting arrows.

I kid, of course. What else can you do when it comes to blockbusters that make more money than you will ever see in your life? Enjoy the trailer:

How Iron Man 3 Should Have Ended

ironman3I just can’t resist posting the latest from HISHE whenever they come up with a new movie spoof. For those who have yet to see Iron Man 3 (myself included), it may not make much sense, and does come with a warning that it contains some spoilers. So if you haven’t seen it yet, do so this weekend (like me), and then come back and we’ll all have a good laugh together.

Otherwise, enjoy the clip and – for the love of God – don’t tell the rest of us why it’s hilarious! I for one still plan to see it and hope to realize it’s significance for myself. Enjoy!

Tony Stark’s Mansion For Sale!


Guess what folks? The people at Motovo, who like to explore the funnier, satirical side of real-estate, have just put Tony Stark’s mansion up for sale in honor of Iron Man 3 hitting the theaters. And as usual, the listing is a combination a tongue-in-cheek humor and just enough realism to make it to funny. Here’s the detailed listing as it appears in the ad:

This luxurious, modern-designed estate offers a breathtaking view of Dume Cove. The previous home of billionaire Tony Stark, and his not-so-secret identity, Iron Man, this expansive home includes 25,000 square feet of living space that is perfect for hosting lavish gatherings. As one would expect from a technology magnate, the Iron Man House is wired with state-of-the-art gadgets to make modern living as painless as possible. For the gearhead in the family, there is an expansive garage and workshop. Also included are marking from Iron Man’s tumultuous career.

The house is located in Malibu and is listed at a hefty $117,250,000, which breaks down to about $4,690 per square foot. But if you don’t have a 100 million dollars kicking around, Motovo offers a (ahem) reasonable loan payment of $423,225 a month. The house also comes with 8 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and boasts such amenities as a fully-functional AI, a bar, a multi-car garage, and a workshop with some of the coolest crap you’ve ever seen (including a particle accelerator!)

New Iron Man 3 Trailer!

ironman3A new theatrical trailer has been released in honor of the third and final installment in the Iron Man franchise! Suffice it to say, it looks pretty awesome, and seems to be promising a finale that is nothing short of bad-ass. Pay special attention to the final few seconds of it, where Stark and Rhodes get “backup” in the form of a whole bunch of guys in Iron Man suits.

Like I said, promises to be bad-ass! Take a gander:

Iron Man 3 Trailer!

There has been some serious buzz surrounding the upcoming release of the new Iron Man movie. This is to be expected seeing as how the movie is less than a year from release, and the studios are making sure that just enough information leaks out to keep prospective viewers and fans speculating! However, if this new trailer is any indication, the movie promises to be the darkest of the series, with Tony Stark and everything he cares about being put in mortal danger.

As for the details which are clear, the following details are now known. Guy Pierce and Ben Kingsley are the movie’s new villain couple, representing two initially cooperative, but ultimately incompatible, efforts to bring Stark down. This is a familiar theme in the series, with Stark battling both corporate rivals and personal enemies at the same time. Whereas Guy Pierce represents a nanotech scientists who’s no doubt after Stark’s empire, Kingsley plays a Chinese national named the Mandarin who has his own Iron Man suit and wants to kill Stark.

Of course, Don Cheadle and Gwyneth Paltrow are back, reprising their roles as James Rhodes and Pepper Potts – the voices of reason in Stark’s life. And if what I’ve read is true, Rhodes also comes standard with the new “War Machine” variant of the Iron Man suit, which means we can expect some cooperative firing like we got at the end of the last movie! And last, but not least, writer/director Shane Black (of Lethal Weapon and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang fame), is on hand for this one, and some pretty over-the-top visuals are promised.

But don’t take my word for it, watch the trailer. It’s sure to jump start your day!
