'Iron Man 2' Moves World Premiere Venue, Releases New Featurette and Images
A volcano eruption in southern Iceland has brought its impact to Hollywood. Paramount Pictures which was set to hold the world premiere of "Iron Man 2" in London, England has to scrap their plan because most flights in Europe have been banned since Mount Eyjafjallajokull began erupting on Wednesday, April 14. The studio now moves the April 26 event to Los Angeles.
Still about "Iron Man 2" promotional efforts, ET Online has got its hand on a brand new featurette from the film. Aimed to highlight the villains, the video mostly shares fresh scenes which include Mickey Rourke's Ivan Vanko/Whiplash and Sam Rockwell's Justin Hammer.
"We did whip training; we used bullwhips," Mickey says in the featurette about his character's signature weapons. Meanwhile, Sam explains his character as "a rival arms dealer to Tony Stark." He then adds, "Our characters are so much the opposite that it works pretty well."
Paramount Pictures has additionally released some new pictures which still capture major characters such as Tony Stark, Pepper Potts, Nick Fury and Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow among others.
"Iron Man 2" will follow billionaire inventor Tony who is asked to share his technology after the world knows that he is the man behind the armored superhero Iron Man. Unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces with Pepper and Rhodey at his side. This superhero flick will be dropped in U.S. theaters on May 7.
