Yesterday, some lucky group of people got to see an Iron Man 2 trailer at the Butt-Numb-A-Thon (BNAT) film festival. One of those lucky people happens to be a reporter from Ain't It Cool News. Today he gave a great description of what was seen in the trailer.

"Most of the first theatrical Iron Man 2 trailer contains footage that screened in the Comic-Con sizzle reel (you can read my description of that trailer here) which was bootlegged a bit if I remember correctly, so theres a good chance some of you fine folks saw that already.

This trailer starts with Tony Stark sitting in front of a Congressional board press and public behind him and Gary Shandling leading the board in front. They want the Iron Man technology and Stark refuses. From the flashes we see that its relative peacetime and Iron Man/Tony Stark spends more time flying to special engagements, awards shows (where hes backed up by cheerleaders or dancers wearing red and gold bikinis with a glowing orb in the middle) and the like.

But while Stark is busy trying to get his Stark Expo up and running we leave him and go to Mickey Rourkes prison cell, littered with articles on Stark and his tech. Theres a voiceover from Rourke about how much he wants to emulate Starks work and then we see him out and whipping up the racetrack where Stark is competing.

What wasnt in the Comic-Con reel was an effects shot of Rourke literally whipping a racecar in two (I assume its Starks) as it speeds by. In slow motion you see the front end separate in much the manner youd expect kinda like a lightsaber strike but the back end starts flipping up and over the front as Rourke is still finishing his strike.

Another new bit has Stark and Pepper standing near the open end of a flying airplane. He asks for a kiss before he leaves and she takes his helmet, kisses it and throws it out of the plane. He smiles and jumps after it, the camera following him down and into some war-ish hell where hes pursued by missiles, etc.

The big money shot is the last scene of the trailer which starts on Don Cheadles face as the War Machine mask slides into place and he starts fighting back to back with Iron Man. They showed this segment at Comic-Con, but the difference on the effects is night and day. Now instead of just the two fighting against black theyre in a war-torn, fiery environment War Machines shoulder mini-guns are whirring taking out men with guns as Iron Mans repulsor rays do their thing.

And we also get a glimpse of Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, but not much more than a brief bit of a beat down she employs to some poor schmuck in a hallway somewhere and a quick shot of Sam Jackson as Nick Fury.

Its a lot of frenetic energy and I suppose does its job, especially for a teaser, but you dont get too much of an idea of the story or a real set up to where Rourke is coming from as a new addition to the universe. But all in good time, right? The flicks still a half-year away-ish, yeah?"

This sound freaking awesome. I hope this will be the same trailer shown in theaters Christmas day.
