Iron Man Premieres Down Under

Robert Downey, Jr. was joined by his director and friend Jon Favreau along with folks like Naomi Watts and Liev Shrieber for the Sydney premiere of the big screen adaptation of Iron Man which took place today in OZ (which works out to be last night for those of us on this side of the planet) ... here are a few pics from the premiere's red carpet:

Iron Man leading lady Gwyneth Paltrow was otherwise occupied back in London so she wasn't able to attend the premiere but there were enough awesome Aussies in attendance to make for a fun premiere. I am SO excited for the release of this movie. It seems like ages ago that we first heard that Iron Man went into production and now we are less than a month away from its release. While I have to say that Batman: The Dark Knight is my #1 must-see movie of the year, I would prolly put Iron Man at #2. From everything I've seen of the movie thus far, it looks like it's going to be really fun and really over-the-top. The movie opens on May 2 here in the US, I've already made my plans to be in the theater on opening weekend ... and by the time that David reads this post, he'll know he's got opening weekend plans, too. Woot!! [Source]
