The 1st ‘Iron Man 3’ full trailer hits the web

23 Oct

After the leaked photos from the set, the officially-released photos, the teaser trailer and the teaser trailers for the trailer … the first full 2-minute trailer for Iron Man 3 is finally out.

As the image shows, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) isn’t exactly in a happy place. The trailer reveals that an all-powerful enemy (The Mandarin played by Ben Kingsley) destroys everything Tony has — his mansion in Malibu, his armory of Iron Man suits, etc — and even threatens the love of his life, Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow).

Longtime Marvel fans should notice a number of not-so-subtle reveals: the Mandarin and his Makluan Ten Rings of Power, the Iron Patriot armor (whose pilot is unknown at present) and a hint of the self-assembling armor from Warren Ellis’s award-winning Extremis story arc.

The trailer is big, loud and ends on a cliffhanger with Tony at his lowest, dragging his deactivated and useless armor through the snow. It’s textbook Hollywood movie magic that leaves you wanting more. Iron Man 3 is the first instalment of Marvel Entertainment’s latest series of movies leading up to Avengers 2 in 2015.

Iron Man 3 opens in Singapore on 25 April 2013.

Why the next Batman movie should be in CG animation

5 Nov

The time has come to make a full-CGI / motion capture Batman movie. To make it work, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill have to be in it. Batman: Arkham City proves that it would be all kinds of awesome. Who’s with me?

With the Christopher Nolan series of Batman movies coming to an end, the opportunity will arise again to reboot the Bat franchise on film. But does it really have to be live action?

My vote is for an CGI / Motion-capture Batman movie in the tradition of films like Beowulf and Final Fantasy: the Spirits Within. But to make this work, the film must feature the voice talents of two men who have brought these classic characters to life for almost two decades: Kevin Conroy as the Batman and Mark Hamill as the Joker.

What? A “cartoon” Batman feature film? Here’s why the idea isn’t all that crazy:

First, Batman the Animated Series is regarded by many Batman fans as the best incarnation of the Dark Knight in any medium. Conroy and Hamill have been fan favorites ever since they first starred in the series in 1992. Since then, they have been brought back in a number of animation projects featuring Batman and the Joker, including Superman, Justice League, Batman Beyond and two direct-to-DVD feature films. They are also both marvelous actors, as this scene from one of the animated series shows.

Most recently Conroy and Hamill reprised their roles in the hit video games Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. The latter has already sold over 4.6 million units since its release on 18 October. (That’s about US$230 million in gross revenue after only two weeks, which puts it in the same league as any Hollywood blockbuster film.)

Finally, technology is now able to give us the dramatic performances we need to make this an excellent film. Both actors will not only be able to voice but to fully perform these characters. With CG, whether or not the actors resemble the characters in real life is no longer an issue, as the following clip from the making of Beowulf shows.

We’ve all seen how full CG characters — from Yoda to Gollum — can command emotional performances onscreen. I am very excited at the prospect of both Conroy and Hamill fully performing these iconic characters. Plus, the action should be spectacular. Take a look at this trailer for Arkham City.

OK they obviously cranked up the action and merged some storylines. (Tintin first met Captain Haddock in Crab With The Golden Claws, not Unicorn.) But it still looks like a mostly faithful adaptation. It’s certainly on my list of must-see films this year!

 

 

The Adventures of Tintin: the Secret of the Unicorn opens in Singapore on 10 November 2011.
