A music video filmed by AC/DC to support one of the "Iron Man 2" soundtracks, "Shoot to Thrill", has been premiered. It was shot in Buenos Aires during the band's "Black Ice World Tour" and features footage of the Robert Downey Jr.-starring movie.
"Shoot to Thrill" is included in "AC/DC: Iron Man 2" compilation album which lists the band's 15 classic songs selected from ten of their studio albums, ranging from 1976 to 2008. It will be released in United States on April 19, two weeks before the film hits the theaters across the nation.
"Jon Favreau's vision and passion for AC/DC's music blend seamlessly into this incredible film," said Steve Barnett, Co-Chairman of Columbia Records. "The music really underscores the high energy and excitement of the film."
Tim Connors, Chief Operating Officer of Marvel Studios, added, "Music is an integral part of the Tony Stark and Iron Man experience, and we are pleased that Columbia and AC/DC are taking part in the franchise's phenomenon."
"Through this relationship, the band is delivering fans supercharged Iron Man branded music through all our combined consumer touch points, from the movie to retail outlets and even virally with the debut of the new video."
