September is going to be very expensive with Transformers, Iron Man, Kill Bill 1 & 2 just to name a few.

i know you guys want proof and i've taken a screenshot of the files i got my hands on that were from USB drives loaded with promo material.

i dont have any picture hosting services so if someone would host the pic pls send me a pm. other files found in the drive include intros to the extras material in the movie.


EDIT: Thanks to msgohan for hosting the pic.

Looks like someone was doing a little espionage.

It fits in with the rumors from http://www.thedigitalbits.com/rumormill.html#061708

The movie is a bit over rated. But Favreau and Downey Jr. are the shiz.
It's solid and a good starting off point, nothing really unique...yet. They need to give the sequel time to breath(give them the $$$ for more suit time).

But, to be honest. This release is useless without some sort of metal case(you know the colors).

Ridiculous codec tier sig gone. Still AVC/24bit lossless fanboy.

Studio quality tier
Most Major studios>Small Studios>dogs>cats>Warner(the guys that do new movies)

I thought it was just me. I didn't get much out of it, although I like Downey Jr's work a lot. I actually enjoyed Norton's Hulk more (ducks!).

i thought Hulk was okay, but i didnt read the comics. it seems the comic readers liked it more. i also didnt get to catch it on dlp as i did with iron man and that might have made a diff.

It wouldn't have. At this point I think the character just isn't right for live action series. That or get a director with the balls to show him ripping limbs and crushing skulls. It would work better as a big budget anime in my opinion(turn it into a horror movie, not an action movie. he's a scary dude).

Back on topic. Who's posting the pics??? I'm interested now.

I'll blind buy this one based on the mostly positive reviews and word of mouth. Sounds fun.

I'll blind buy this as well if I don't end up seeing it at theaters. The local $3 theater says it's coming soon so I may just catch it there.

Speaking as a die-hard Marvel Comics buff, this movie is the best representation of a comic book hero brought to life!
I can't wait to see it in 1080P HD.
I loved it, and it a a definite buy.

Of course, opinions vary, but I endured going to the theater to see IM twice. This is at the top of the list for a BD purchase for me.

Loved the movie, right up there with Spidey 2 and Batman Begins for me, if not better! I loved the snappy dialog and pacing, only wish they'd have made you dislike the villain a tad more ala Spidey 2, but still, it rocked overall! A no brainer purchase, hope it turns out to be demo material! =)

Sept already looks like the single greatest release month thus far IMO.

Cool, it's going to have the HUD like Transformers HD DVD had. Looks like a stellar release.

Sweet, can't wait! This will likely change when I go watch Wall-E and Dark Knight, but so far this has been my favorite movie of the year.

Its a blind buy for me.

I have to have the bluray to match the ironman statue I ordered for the theater. It is going right next to the Spidy bust and the Sonny (iRobot) bust.

Robert Downey Jr. was pretty much born to play Tony Stark. Why would they consider anyone else?

I agree, but Batman Begins and the two Burton Batmans are close behind.

For those that haven't watched this in the theaters, it's worth a Blind Buy.

The Dark Knight is #1 because of Ledger's Joker performance.

You haven't even seen it yet...

What if he turns out to be no better than he was in 10 things i hate about you?

I'm not saying I think he's going to be. I'm sure he is gonna be fine in it. But I don't think there would be near this assumption that this is going to be a "legendary" performance had he not passed away. Him passing away definitely tripled the hype factor on his performance of joker, IMO.

How is Dark Knight #1 if you haven't even seen it yet?

Well, if Dark knight is #1 on that list, then I'm putting the upcoming Avengers as #1 on my list.

That's just proof that it's number 1. Since you can call without seeing it.

It can't be. Because the Hulk would need to be in it somewhere. And he hasn't faired well on the big screen at all.
