    I loved the first one. I thought this was good, but not quite as good as the first.

    It could have done with more Iron Man though.

    Thought it was garbage. Last 15 minutes was good.

    Nearly left half way through I was so bored.

    It kinda seemed like "a sequel just for the sake of making a sequel", rather than actually having some decent ideas and giving us something fresh and new

    i loved it. i was slightly surprised by Whiplash's armour suit at the end since Fav was quoted saying you 'couldn't have just another Rock'em Sock'em Robots final fight.

    laughed a fucking lot though.

    loved how Happy was so please he beat that ONE guy and then sees Natasha's smacked down a dozen. loved WM and IM fighting the drones.

    loved the fact Tony said to Rhodey about being a 'war machine' after he put the mkII suit on and how Hammer referred to the gunned-up suit as the 'Variable Threat Response battle-suit' - the original name for the WM armour.

    and of course, the end scene was awesome.

    What do you mean encourage :lol:

    Anyway the piracy isn't going to affect the US release since all foreign versions are dubbed and Americans hate reading subtitles .

    No, not all of them are dubbed. Plus there's the UK & Australia where it's already out.
    Anyway, as of yesterday there is one version out with Russian sound. I'm sure it won't take longer than a day or two for English sound copies.

    Imo the best reason that IM2 won't be affected by piracy this early is that nobody wants to see such a movie (effects, battles and all that) in a crappy cam version, on a small screen. Maybe they would have a problem if a dvd/blu-ray quality copy was out there.
    Plus the fact that it has become one of those must see, exciting, fun events.

    Just to put an example, Iron Man 2 was released here both dubbed in spanish and in subtitled versions. I saw it subtitled, of course.

    ^^ Even here in Taiwan it's in English with Mandarin subtitles.

    Salvor Hardin: since this is a place with a lot of piracy, the fact that it was sold out last night shows that you're onto something with people wanting to see this in quality.

    Not all of them, you forget the UK ;) Besides, original versions are also available in certain cities, especially Brussels.

    What I want to know is what happened to the scene which features in the trailers where Tony and Pepper are chatting in the back of a cargo plane, Pepper kisses his Iron Man helmet, throws it out of the cargo plane forcing Tony to dive after it and put it on in flight. In the film thats changed to fade out from black with the pilots of the cargo plane talking to Iron Man over the radio and Tony (helmet in place) diving out of the plane. Fireworks are exploding all around and the impression is being given that Iron Man is entering a warzone, when in fact its the Stark Expo. WTF

    But, see, you have to wait to see our movies. Do your movies get released here before there?

    Trailers are often made before the final cut of the film, and by different people. The "practice" of deleted, removed, or altered scenes has been part of the movie/trailer relationship forever. This is nothing new.

    Mr. Favreau, there was a snippet in the trailer where Pepper was in the plane with Tony. Was that meant to be a part of the Stark Expo scene where he's flying down from the plane?

    Favreau: Yes. We had different versions of things that we tried. That was something that we tried, that was something that was a great image and a scene that's gonna be on the DVD. But we had two different versions of it, and because of the pacing and the way we reveal Tony Stark, it felt really good to flow into the drop down and reveal him for the first time on the stage. For those of you who haven't seen the movie, this doesn't make any sense. But oftentimes, in the editing room, we figure out what combinations of scenes ...

    Downey: Gwyneth is just finding out that that scene was cut, Jon. You might be a little more sensitive.

    Cheadle: You're in for a big surprise.

    Paltrow: Nothing would surprise me.

    I refuse to believe this ranks anywhere near TF:2.
    I had iffy vibes about Revenge of Fallen just with the trailer I don't get that with IM:2.

    they also didn't include the scene from the trailer where Stark lets Natasha use the repulsor.
