Iron Man 3 could have been just like Iron Man 2, a $200-million mediocrity with characters as flimsy as Ivan Vanko was. The previous two movies, starring Robert Downey Jr. and directed by Jon Favreau, were full of sound and fury, signifying…well, $585 million and $623 million at the box office, respectively. But I have every faith that this movie will outearn them by the fact that it’s actually good.
EuropaCorp has released the first five minutes of Lockout, and boy, they’re good ones…if you like the idea of watching actor Guy Pearce eating several servings of knuckle sandwich. And after more than 30 seconds with the overly cocky character, Snow, you’ll enjoy every single punch.
