IRON MAN 3: Making Of The Air Force One Skydiving Scene
MTV has unveiled a new Iron Man 3 behind-the-scenes clip that will be included on the DVD and Blu-ray copy, September 24th. It features that 'barrel of monkeys' scene, in which Tony Stark attempts a mid-air rescue of Air Force One passengers.
When a bunch of passengers are sucked out of a hole in Air Force One at 30,000 feet, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) leaps into action. In order to capture that action sequence Shane Black recruited the Red Bull skydiving team. The director made a bold decision by opting to go with live-action actors instead of digital versions. It took the film crew six days to shoot the skydiving scene.
Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man 3″ pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Iron Man 3 was directed by Shane Black, from a screenplay written by Drew Pearce. The film opened in theaters May 3, 2013. It stars: Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Gwyneth Paltrow (Virginia Potts), Don Cheadle (Col. James Rhodes), and Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin.
