‘Iron Man 3′: Iron Patriot Armor Spotted on Set


Iron Patriot in Iron Man 3

I literally just finished writing a story detailing all the recent villain rumors for Iron Man 3, and another big rumor has dropped. While we are still waiting to see if Ben Kingsley is in fact playing iconic Iron Man villain The Mandarin (and all the debate that has already created), we now get word that Iron Man’s star-spangled counterpart, The Iron Patriot, will also be part of Iron Man 3.

If you hear the name “Iron Patriot” and find yourself scratching your head in confusion, simply scroll down to get details on who the character is.

In my last post I wrote how Iron Man 3 - which sees Tony Stark battling terrorists who unleash a nanotechnology virus known (in the comics) as “Extremis” – could be sowing ...

‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’: The Real Reason for the Delay


The real reason for GI Joes delay

Last week Paramount Pictures announced that it was delaying the release of G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The action sequel was shifted from its June 29, 2012 launch to March 29, 2013 because the studio wanted to ‘spend extra time converting the film into 3D’. The reason given for the 3D conversion was that the lucrative ticket price could maximise foreign box office revenue and make the film more profitable.

It seemed odd that a studio would pull such a big film just five weeks before it was set to open, and then wait another nine months before it hit screens. Well, not surprisingly the 3D conversion isn’t the real reason for G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘s delay. Not by a long shot. Scroll down for the real story.

Tom Cruise piqued the curiosity of those who attended the 2012 CinemaCon panel for his upcoming film, One Shot – when he referred to the project as Reacher.

Paramount has since revealed that the movie is actually going to be titled Jack Reacher. While the studio has yet to offer an official explanation for the change-up in title, it was (most likely) motivated by a desire to appeal directly to fans of the Reacher character – similar to how this fall’s rebooting installment in the Alex Cross movie franchise is simply going by the title… well, Alex Cross.

Confirmation of the One Shot adaptation’s title change comes courtesy of Risky Business. The film remains set for a Winter 2012 theatrical release, where it will fill the spot previously occupied by Paramount’s World War Z ...
