Iron Man hits theaters on May 3, 2013. The trailer for Iron Man 3 hits the Internet late tonight. The trailer for the trailer is online right now.
You read that right. The video above is a trailer for a trailer. The Hollywood hype machine has degraded to that point.
The trailer for the trailer is just 15 seconds long and includes just eight distinct shots and a lot of text on black screen. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is in five of the shots. To say that the trailer for the trailer gives nothing about the movie away would be a ridiculous understatement. Pretty much all we can ascertain is that Iron Man will, indeed, make an appearance in Iron Man 3. Who’s pumped for that?
I just had an idea.
Quick, someone edit the video into an even shorter trailer for the trailer for the Iron Man 3 trailer. Then do it again, except do it so it’s a trailer for the trailer for the trailer for the Iron Man 3 trailer. If we do this enough times, I have a theory that we’ll somehow discover how the universe began. Suck on that, large hadron collider!
