The Iron Man trailer is now up online and, suffice to say, it's pretty frickin' awesome.
For the most part, this is the same footage attendees of Comic-Con witnessed, aside from a quick shot or two. Still, despite viewing it three times at Comic-Con myself, I still got a little tingly watching it this time around.
There is a surprising amount of footage for a movie that doesn't come out until summer 2008. Best of all, the Black Sabbath song "Iron Man" is used to perfection. The song hasn't been cleared yet for the actual movie, but it will likely find it's way in at some point, a perfect fit indeed.
Now let's just hope they don't end up using some crappy remix of the song with P. Diddy rapping over it or something. Posted 09.10.07 by reelz

Who could possibly be left for tomorrow?! Posted 09.10.07 by reelz
Our friend Greg Ellwood at MSN has done it again, compiling a nice list previewing the hot ticket films at the Toronto Film Festival.
This week will be full of coverage on Dailies, who is there interviewing all the celebs. But in the meantime, check out Greg's list of ones to watch here. Posted 09.10.07 by reelz
Last night Shia LaBeouf dropped a bomb at the VMA's - he revealed the name of the new Indiana Jones movie. Indiana Jones IV will be called (drumroll please)...Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
We don't know what that means, but as the dutiful Gen Xers that we are, we sure are fired up about it! Posted 09.10.07 by reelz
Variety reports that IFC Films, the theatrical distribution arm of the Independent Film Channel, has made the first official purchase of the Toronto Film Festival, snatching up the North American rights to the Icelandic thriller Jar City.
Directed by Baltasar Kormákur and based on a novel by Arnaldur Indriðason, Jar City stars Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Atli Rafn Sigurðsson and a bunch of other people whose names I couldn't possibly hope to pronounce.
Last weekend, millions of Americans celebrated their final weekend of freedom, knowing that over the next several months they'll be sacrificing most of their Saturdays and Sundays (and Mondays and Thursdays) to the football gods, watching their favorite teams duke it out on the gridiron.
Though I presume most of you will be too immersed in a nachos-and-beer-induced food coma (or, if you're a Raiders fan, probably stranded in prison) to get off the couch today and head to the Cineplex, you should at least have enough energy to check out Reelz.com's look at some of the best (and worst) marriages of movies and football.

Just because Lionsgate might not know what they're doing with a September 7th release date doesn't mean you should miss this classic western.
Not a western fan? Forget about that, because even non-fans of the cowboy genre will find something to like about this exceptional movie. There's nice action and gunfights, great visuals, great acting and macho men for you ladies who are tired of all those metrosexual men at the clubs.
I can't gush any more than I already did in my review, so I'm just telling you to do something novel and see a good movie for once. I'm talking to you, American theater-goer who spent $10 bucks on Norbit, Evan Almighty, Wild Hogs, Ghost Rider, Halloween, Daddy Day Camp or all of the above.
We've also got an entertaining interview up with the stars of 3:10 to Yuma, Russell Crowe and Christian Bale.
Check this movie out or I will hunt you down with my sixgun before having to sit through Norbit 2! Posted 09.07.07 by reelz
It's NRA week at the Cineplex, with this weekend's two major releases, 3:10 to Yuma and Shoot 'Em Up, both featuring ample amounts of gunplay. Turns out they're both pretty good movies, too -- Yuma is even being touted as the year's first bona fide Oscar contender.
A rundown of our reviews of this weekend's new releases:
3:10 to Yuma
"A modern classic of the genre. From start to end, a breathtakingly captivating piece of cinema in every aspect." [Full Review]
Shoot 'Em Up
"Firmly rooted in the tradition of film noir, with tough guys, deadly bombshells and Raymond Chandler-esque language. Ridiculous, over-the-top, stupid...and still pretty fun."
