As we get closer to May 7th, we’re going to see a lot more images, clips, and other news regarding Iron Man 2. This week has seen some viral-ish tidbits, including a viral video that director Jon Favreau really liked, an AC/DC and Iron Man 2 video projected on a castle, and an augmented reality app. Get all the details after the break.
First of all, Favreau tweeted this week that he had seen a “cool IM2 remix”, and that he was passing it on to the guys in marketing at Paramount. Turns out this was the video we featured on the site back in March. Though it’s a tight fit, we may see at least a version of this remix video before the film is released. Take a look at it below.
Also this week, the UK saw the world’s first Architectural Projection Mapping to incorporate live footage. A music video featuring AC/DC and Iron Man 2 imagery were projected onto the famed Rochester Castle. Check it out below.
It’s been a little while since we’ve seen some augmented reality for a film. Now Iron Man 2 is doing it, and it’s one of the coolest ones I’ve seen. When you log onto the UK site, you can actually get inside the Iron Man helmet. The site finds your head and places the helmet of Iron Man or War Machine right on it. You can also go inside the helmet so that it shows you the Heads Up Display like in the film, as well as talk to Jarvis (Paul Bettany) himself. The controls also allow you to share video and images of your time as Iron Man pretty easily. See how it looks below.
