Iron Man 3 Will Get An Early International IMAX 3D Release

Iron Man 3 will following in the footsteps of some of the previously released Marvel films to be given the IMAX treatment as part of its anticipated theatrical release. What's more, the international IMAX 3D release is scheduled for April 25, which is just over a week ahead of the film's planned U.S. release in early May. And in other Iron Man news, some explosion-filled set videos have made their way online.

On the subject of the IMAX release, Collider posted the press release from IMAX Corporation and Marvel Entertainment today, which states that Iron Man 3 will join Iron Man 2, Thor and The Avengers among the franchise's IMAX releases. The new Iron Man sequel will be digitally re-mastered into the immersive IMAX 3D format and released into IMAX theaters internationally beginning April 25 and domestically May 3.

Here's part of the plot synopsis for Iron Man 3, which hints at what sounds like some major devastation in Tony Stark's life and another test of his character.

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?

At this point, there are still months to wait to see what's next for Tony Stark, but now we know fans who want to see him in IMAX 3D will eventually have the opportunity to do so. In the meantime, based on the recent production videos, it looks like we can expect (spoiler alert?)... explosions.

The above video is one of three posted at The site reports that they were shot at the TLC Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. As you'll note, there's explosions, people running and screaming en masse, and some Christmas decorations in sight. It looks like the making of what could be some very exciting moments in the film, which arrives in theaters May 3.
