Iron Man to appear on the big screen

Guest Author - Lorna London Sloukji

The countdown continues until Jon Favreau’s Iron Man comes out in theatres tomorrow, on May 2, 2008.
Adapted from Stan Lee’s first “Tales of Suspense” story in “The Avengers” comic book series in the 1960s, Iron Man tells the story of a tycoon, Tony Stark, living inside the Iron Man’s shell. Conforming to the traditional concept of the flawed and troubled character, Stark lives his days as an alcoholic and womanizer.
Starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, the adapted movie reveals Stark’s kidnapping and forced task to produce a destructive weapon. Using ingenuity, Stark creates a suit of armour and escapes, but is later haunted by his past, urging him to protect the world when it is in danger.
The Iron Man movie promises sophisticated cinematography and special effects, with more of a focus into turning the protagonist into a figure who fights for American freedom.
Reviewers have been praising Iron Man for its real visual effects rather than computer generated ones, enabling the character to seem more life-like, and therefore, more relatable.
As the story lines progress, so does Tony Stark. He evolves from a self-absorbed jerk into a more compassionate person, allowing both readers and viewers to establish a stronger connection with him.
Historically, when Iron Man appeared in comic books by himself, sales revenue did not do that well until he would make his debuts in more distinctive comics like Spider Man. Although Iron Man’s comic sales have risen, more widely-recognized comic heroes like Super Man and Spider Man dominate cash registers.
The premiere of the film boasted the graces of Paltrow, Howard, Downey Jr., and director Favreau, as they all praised each other and the production process. The premiere was held at the Tribeca Grand screening room. Other celebs who attended the event include Liv Tyler, Helena Christensen, and Diana Ross.
It’s quite apparent that mommy-friendly sets are on the rise in Hollywood, as Gwyneth claims director Favreau accommodated her family during the production.
Meanwhile, Gwyneth’s stiletto-wearing appearance in the premiere has certainly increased promotion for Iron Man’s debut, soon to hit theatres.

According to Coming Soon Media, these are the top ten selling DVDs:

1. Juno
2. AVP-R
3. Alvin and the Chipmunks
4. The Water Horse
5. In the Name of the King
6. I Am Legend
7. There Will Be Blood
8. Sweeney Todd
9. Walk Hard
10. Enchanted
