Popcorn Pick 5-7-10

Popcorn Pick

This week's pick is easy- a certain superhero movie starring one of the kookiest actors currently in Hollywood. Two years ago, Iron Man started off the summer with a bang, wowing audiences and leaving them panting for more. No one expected it to be as big as it was, but this time around, expectations are very high. Iron Man 2 finds Tony Stark dealing with the newfound celebrity he has with the whole world knowing his double life and facing down the badass Russian villain Whiplash. Robert Downey, Jr. is back as the iron-clad stud with a performance that's sure to impress. Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) looks like he puts everything he has into Whiplash to create a complex and real-seeming villain. The glittery cast is rounded out by Gwyneth Paltrow, once again playing Stark's tireless babysitter Pepper Potts (a comic book name if ever I heard one); Don Cheadle, sadly replacing Terrence Howard to play Rhodey and suit up in his own Iron Man uniform; Scarlett Johansson, clad in tight leather as Black Widow (hero or villain? See it to find out!), Samuel L. Jackson as the one-eyed Nick Fury, expanding on his cameo from the first film, and Sam Rockwell as a businessman interested in building more Iron Man suits. Expect lots of slam-bang action, awesome special effects, and witty banter. Sure to be one of the biggest films of the summer.
