The Academy Awards just happened. I should be writing about who won, why they won and what can be expected from the winners and losers in the near future. But no. I'm here to tell you that the new trailer for Iron Man 2 has hit Apple Trailers and it's about sixty seven times more amazing than a golden statue of a naked man given out at at Hollywood's annual We're-So-Awesome-Have-A-Self-Congratulatory-Back-Rub-We-Love-You-Athon (with apologies to the excellent The Hurt Locker, congrats to Bigelow and company).

I don't like to be the typical online fanboy who sweats hyperbole and cries tears of hype, but this trailer compelled me to watch it three times. In a row. And when I'm done telling you about it, I'm going to go watch it again. Three times. In a row. So go watch it now, preferably three times in a row, and report on back.

What stands out to little 'ol me:

-Director Jon Favreau has apparently taken some criticism to heart and it looks like the action in Iron Man 2 has been increased ten-fold. We see a lot of flight, a lot of fire, a lot of explosions and a lot of energy-whip-on-racecar destruction. This trailer also shows that this Tony Stark adventure will have 100% more scenes showcasing Iron Man punching robot drones. This is a good thing. A great thing, even.
