The original story continues below:
Iron Man may be blasting his way into theatres earlier than expected. While the film had long been advertised as having a May 2, 2008 release date, Andrew Cripps, President of Paramount Pictures International, announced that Iron Man would be released Day-and-Date worldwide on April 30.
What is uncertain is whether or not this means that Iron Man will have an international release date of April 30, with a US release still on May 2, or if they are going for a similar strategy to the one they used with Michael Bay's Transformers, which had its release date moved earlier and earlier, until it finally had the first screening on a Monday night.
Cripps also told audiences at ShoWest that there would be a new trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull available in April - most likely attached to Iron Man.
