Instead of being released on December 25 when 'Sherlock Holmes' hits theaters, the teaser for the upcoming superhero film may be debuted a week earlier.
Words on the street are, teaser for highly anticipated movie "Iron Man 2" will be debuted when James Cameron's "Avatar" is released next week. According to a user on the IMDB forums who claims himself a projectionist in a New Zealand theater, they have received a notice from Paramount Pictures that they are going to get the first trailer for the "Iron Man" sequel as well as "Shrek Forever After" to be played alongside the Sam Worthington-starring movie.
"Hey, i work as a projectionist for a theater complex, Berkley Cinemas, in Auckland, New Zealand," the source writes. "And we just got an email from Paramount today to say that they will be sending out the first trailers for 'Iron Man 2' and 'Shrek Forever After' next week to be played before Avatar beginning Dec. 17. :) just thought i'd pass along the good news."
This means the sneak peek at the upcoming superhero movie will be unleashed one week earlier than it was expected on December 25, based on director Jon Favreau's hint. On November 19, the filmmaker retweeted a fan's question about the first trailer for "Iron Man 2" by writing that it may be released when another Robert Downey Jr.-starring film, "Sherlock Holmes", hits U.S. theaters.
Beside having Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow who reprise their roles as Tony Stark/Iron Man and Pepper Potts, this follow up to 2008 "Iron Man" will introduce Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow. Joining them in the star-studded cast ensemble are Mickey Rourke as Ivan Vanko/Whiplash and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Penned by Justin Theroux, "Iron Man 2" is set to invade theaters across the U.S. on May 7, 2010.
