In what may be a first, we’ve got an item about a commercial for a trailer to a movie that won’t be coming out until next May.
It sounds ridiculous — and it surely is — but the movie in question is Iron Man, the superhero epic with the spectacular cast, so we’ll cut the studio and director Jon Favreau a little slack here. If you click through to the link below, you can get a look at an ad MTV’s been running to promote the fact that they’ll be premiering the Iron Man trailer tonight at 9:30 (8:30 central). Lots of quick cuts, naturally, but you can catch brief glimpses of Robert Downey Jr., Jeff Bridges, Terrence Howard, and Gwyneth Paltrow in character — and, most importantly, get a look at Iron Man in action.
And if you miss the trailer’s television premiere tonight, don’t worry — it’ll be available for online viewing (for 24 hours only) at MTV Movies beginning at 10 o’clock EST tonight.
UPDATE: Then again, if you don’t feel like watching the commercial or waiting until tonight, you can just head over to Apple and watch the trailer right now. Thanks to MMacKK for pointing this out!
