The ink has barely even dried, but it’s already the oldest trick in the book: Teaser trailers for teaser trailers. Unlocked by a couple of thousand Facebook fans bashing that “Like” button, this little snippet is a prelude to Wednesday’s “full” teaser trailer.
It’s only 17 seconds long, so if I were you, I wouldn’t blink. Especially, if you want that first glimpse of Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin.
Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
You missed it, didn’t ya? Here, let me help you out a bit. Freeze it at 0:08 and you get this lovely shot of Sir Kingsley’s top knot.
Yes, that is all you get, but this is a teaser for a teaser so I’m not sure what else you were expecting. I will say this though, judging by the fact that I am not currently picking out yesterday’s half digested rice and beans my keyboard tells me that I am starting to warm to the new design of the suit though.
