The Super Bowl is almost here, and Disney has unveiled sneak peeks at its three big movie promos that will air in anticipation of game day. If you’re tuning in, you’ll catch new promos for “Iron Man 3,” “Oz: The Great and Powerful” and “The Lone Ranger,” and Disney has given fans a taste of what’s in store a bit early.

Here’s the “Iron Man 3″ tease:

It’s basically a brief snippet of what we have already seen in the trailers, but /Film says we’ll actually get something much different — and hopefully better — during the Super Bowl. This spot will last 60 seconds.

As for “The Lone Ranger” promo, its length is indicative of how long the Super Bowl trailer will run. Disney paid for a 90-second TV spot, which ends up costing millions of dollars.

This teaser, like all the trailers we’ve seen from the movie, plays up the relationship between Armie Hammer’s Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp’s Tonto. Our guess is we’ll likely see some new action-packed footage in the new promo that Disney unveils.

Last but not least, there’s the “Oz: The Great and Powerful” sneak peek:

This 10-second video gets across only the most basic premise of the movie: The wizard heads to Oz. The full promo will be 63 seconds long, and hopefully play up a whole lot of the Wicked Witch of the West.

Disney isn’t the only studio promoting its 2013 film slate during the Super Bowl. Paramount is airing a “Star Trek Into Darkness” 30-second teaser and a 30-second “World War Z” promo, while Universal has paid for a 30-second “Fast 6″ ad. The Super Bowl takes place on February 3.

“Iron Man 3″ to be released early in IMAX

Iron-Man-3

Love “Iron Man”? Love IMAX? Well we’ve got some good news for you. If May 3 seems like way too long to wait until “Iron Man 3″ hits theaters, then you’re in luck, because it’s actually going to be released a week earlier in the IMAX format.

IMAX and Marvel have revealed that “Iron Man 3″ will come out on April 25 in IMAX theaters. The movie is being digitally re-mastered in IMAX 3D, though there likely will be 2D showings as well. “Iron Man 3″ is now the fourth Marvel film to be released in IMAX, following in the footsteps of “Iron Man 2,” “Thor” and “The Avengers.”

“Marvel and IMAX are a perfect one-two punch and the ‘Iron Man’ franchise has become a global phenomenon that resonates with fans around the world,” Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment Greg Foster said in a press release. “We look forward to moviegoers experiencing this highly-anticipated next installment of Tony Stark’s latest adventures in IMAX 3D.”

“Iron Man 3″ is based on Warren Ellis’s “Iron Man” comic book series “Extremis.” The flick is directed by Shane Black and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, Wang Xueqi and Ben Kingsley.

Pearce’s Aldrich Killian looks to be the movie’s big bad as a co-creator of the Extremis serum, which creates a new breed of supersoldier. He and partner Maya Hansen, played by Hall, opt to place the serum in the hands of terrorists and set them up against Iron Man in order to prove the strength of Extremis. It was announced at San Diego Comic-Con that Kingsley will play The Mandarin. “Iron Man 3″ will hit theaters on May 3, 2013.

“Iron Man 3″ releases new, foreboding still

Tony Stark is not looking to great in the newest still from “Iron Man 3.” Badly beaten and with his mask cracked, the genius billionaire playboy philanthropist actually seems like he’s at as low a point as we’ve seen him since he was kidnapped in “Iron Man.”

The image comes courtesy of Stitch Kingdom, and seems to imply that some serious and terrible things are coming Iron Man’s way. But that goes against what we’ve heard about the movie so far. Though the trailer makes it seem like “Iron Man 3″ is a very serious movie, actor James Badge Dale recently admitted that it’s not.

“‘IM3′ is really a dark comedy with a little bit of farce,” he told Glow magazine, via Just Jared. “The trick is to be able to have the audience relate to you. Director Shane Black gave me a long leash. We had a great time. Robert Downey Jr. loves the process of acting and loves to be creative with a director and his fellow actors.”

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige echoed similar sentiments in the past, saying, “It’s not a serious movie, but we seriously dig into exploring more of Tony. The trick is just trying to make great movies. We try to make them all great, all different and all fresh. What you’ll see in ‘Iron Man 3′ is some very unique directions that were taken.”

“Iron Man 3″ is based on Warren Ellis’s “Iron Man” comic book series “Extremis.” The flick is directed by Shane Black and also stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, Wang Xueqi and Ben Kingsley.
