Plan Your May 2nd Accordingly

To the disappointment of, the Fred Thompson Campaign (sorry Sean), the Rudy Giuliani Campaign, and anyone else in politics with something they really felt the American people just had to see on the Internet; they all lost in total downloads to the first trailer for the highly-anticipated Iron Man movie from Paramount.

You can see it here at Apple's site, or just click below since it landed on YouTube by the Monday.

If this film is half as good as its trailer, it's going to be a big hit and Marvel will continue its record of winners at the box office.

It also proves, the film's producers were smart to pick Robert Downey Jr. over Tom Cruise for the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man. He looks perfect for the role of comics first anti-Communist, pro-military hero.

UPDATE: From; the actual quote from the film at the weapons test scene.
Is it better to be feared, or respected? And I say, 'is it too much to ask for both'? With that in mind, I humbly present the crown jewel of Stark Industries' Freedom Line. It's the first missile system to incorporate our proprietary repulsor technology. 'They' say the best weapon is one you never have to fire. I respectfully disagree. I prefer the weapon that you only have to fire once. That's how dad did it, that's how America does it, and it's worked out pretty well so far.
God bless Stan Lee and Jack Kirby for the creation of the walking weapons system that is Shellhead.
