Not long after we got a look at a new Iron Man 3 trailer, an international version was released featuring new footage from the Shane Black-directed Marvel sequel. While the two are nearly identical for the first minute and 40 seconds, they diverge a bit in the remaining moments, offering snippets of Chinese actors Wang Xueqi and Fan Bingbing, and footage clearly shot in China.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Iron Man 3 also stars Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton. The film opens May 3.
