Iron Man (US BD) in September

Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the US Blu-ray Disc release of Iron Man on 30th September 2008 priced at $39.99 SRP. Jon Favreau directs this comic-book adaptation that stars Robert Downey Jr. as jet-setting genius-industrialist weapons designer Tony Stark.
