17 Days left for the release of this summers most anticipated flick Iron Man. The stars came out last night in Sydney, Australia for its world premiere.

This Superhero film is based on the fictional Marvel Comic and is directed by Jon Favreau. Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, a billionaire industrialist who is captured by terrorists in Afghanistan. Ordered to build a missile, Stark uses his resources instead to build a suit of power armor and make his escape.

Returning to America, Stark improves his armor and becomes the technologically advanced superhero Iron Man. Gwyneth Paltrow plays his secretary and love interest Virginia Potts, Terrence Howard plays jet pilot James Rhodes, and Jeff Bridges plays the villainous Obadiah Stane / Iron Monger.

With an all-star cast like this, we can almost guarantee that it’s going to be a big hit. We hear Robert Downey Jr will be reprising his role as Iron Man in the upcoming flick The Incredible Hulk. That’s a bonus for all you Marvel Comic fans! If you can’t wait until the movie opening, check out the Iron Man movie trailer below.
