plot synopsis

But where is the damn trailer?

I know. I know. Stay cool.

As previously reported, and is now confirmed by this official synopsis, Shane Black will be taking Iron Man into some tumultuous waters next summer in Iron Man 3, seemingly tearing down Tony Stark and his armored alterego and putting them through the ringer to build them back up again. Let’s go to the synopsis:

Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben KingsleyIron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of Tales of Suspense (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with The Invincible Iron Man (#1) in May of 1968.

Iron Man 3 is presented by Marvel Studios in association with Paramount Pictures and DMG Entertainment. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing and Jon Favreau, Louis D’Esposito, Stephen Broussard, Victoria Alonso, Alan Fine, Charles Newirth, Stan Lee and Dan Mintz are executive producers. The film releases May 3, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

So fairly straightforward hardly any spoilers. Now when do we get the damn trailer, Marvel?!?!

Made under one of those secrecy cloaks, we’ve had no idea what Neill Blomkamp‘s District 9 follow-up Elysium has been about… Until now.

Well, I guess the film hasn’t been developed in a cave. For instance, we know that it’s sci-fi, and we know that it stars Jodie Foster and the shaven-head of Matt Damon, but plot details? Forget about it!

But Collider got some scoop this morning, and it came from, of all things, a party invitation. There’s a special preview screening of Elysium happening somewhere tonight, and the invite includes the first, let’s say, official plot description. First the plot synopsis, and then the ticket image:

In the year 2159 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

No word on who all’s invited to the screening, but maybe we’ll be getting some advanced reviews/insight into the film sometime in the immediate future. Stay tuned.

Elysium, starring Damon and Foster along with Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Sonia Braga, and Diego Luna will hit theaters on March 1, 2013.
