Iron Man 3, “Empires” First Trailers

Two trailers have launched in the past twelve hours and the difference in quality couldn’t be more stark.

On the one hand there’s the stellar teaser trailer for “Iron Man 3”, showcasing a darker tone but still the big-scale spectacle we’ve come to expect from a Marvel film. It’s an excellent preview and shows this franchise still has a ton of life left to it.

On the other is “Empires of the Deep 3D”, a $100+ million debacle of an underwater fantasy epic funded by a Chinese real estate mogul, starring former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko and helmed by Michael French.
