New Iron Man 3 IMAX Poster

Designed by Jock...

There are but a few more sleeps until Iron Man 3 touches down in our cinemas. American audiences, including someone writing these very words and wiping away bitter tears as he does so, will have to be a little more patient as the movie doesn’t hit US screens until May 3. But those checking the film out in IMAX 3D across the pond will get a little extra treat to soothe their stressed, impatient nerves as limited runs of the new IMAX poster will be available. Take a look below.

Designed by ace artist Jock (who was responsible for some similarly release-adjacent art for The Dark Knight Rises), the poster is part of Mondo and IMAX’s 12:01 series, which rewards people who make that extra cinema-going effort and hit the midnight screenings. It’s actually the last one to be produced, though the IMAX site promises something new for the future.

For a list of US cinemas participating, head to IMAX’s blog. There’s no word yet on whether any of the UK IMAX screens will have these available, but keep your fingers crossed. For those who want to see Jock's ideas for the poster, take yourself over to his site - it's a fascinating glimpse into the creative process.

Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark faces his biggest challenge in the latest Iron Man film, with threats from the Mandarin and his own psyche. It’s out in the UK on April 25. So… very… close… Check out the most recent trailer below.
