Screening Offers Festival Goers a Sneak Preview of Marvel’s Highly Anticipated Iron Man 3


(NEW YORK, NY) - April 18, 2013 - Entertainment Weekly today announced that a complimentary advance screening of Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” will kick off the EW CapeTown Film Festival (CapeTown) at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 30. The inaugural film festival, co-presented by Entertainment Weekly and American Cinematheque, and sponsored by TNT’s Falling Skies, will host a screening of Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” before the film opens in theaters on May 3. Following the screening, there will be a Q&A session with Kevin Feige, producer of Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” and Marvel Studios’ President.

Marvel’s “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?
