Iron Man (UK BD) in October
Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the UK Blu-ray Disc release of Iron Man on 27th October 2008 priced at £29.99 RRP. Jon Favreau directs this comic-book adaptation that stars Robert Downey Jr. as jet-setting genius-industrialist weapons designer Tony Stark. Captured in enemy territory whilst showing off his latest tools of destruction, Stark builds a high-tech suit of armour to escape and soon finds himself on a mission to save the world as a hero who’s built, not born, to be unlike any other. The film co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard and Jeff Bridges.
The 2-Disc Ultimate Edition Blu-ray Disc offers all of the content of the 2-Disc DVD release in high definition plus exclusives in the form of the “Hall of Armour” and a BD-Live feature "Iron Man I.Q." Region coding is TBC though very likely to be region free.
