Film Poster Friday #20: Iron Man 3

Robert Downey Jr Falls from the sky in Iron Man 3

So far only 4 posters have been released for Iron Man 3 but they’re looking pretty good.

Whilst not strictly a character poster, the shot of Iron Man falling from the sky is certainly dynamic and suggests that things will be going far from smoothly for Robert Downey Jr’s character this time out (nothing new there then!).

The more traditional posters of Pearce, Cheadle and Kingsley’s characters are all fine, but I’d question whether The Mandarin’s laid-back pose does a good job of communicating any level of threat or menace. And a couple of thing’s about the shot of Guy Pearce trouble me – it seems a little dark / underexposed around the face to me, his lips look slightly pink (?) and I hope to god that isn’t a glimpse of a pony tail we can see at the back there…

Anyway – looking forward to seeing the film in May.
