When fan boy films begin churning out huge opening numbers, they become four-quadrant films.

    Iron Man 2 Comic-Con Footage

    The Iron Man 2 footage that was screened at Comic-Con has showed up online at Worst Previews. It's shaky-cam. Looks like great smart fun to me. (Note how Don Cheadle deals with his replacing Terrence Howard.) We have to wait until May 2010. It hasn't been edited into a movie yet.
