Iron Man "Suit Up"
Posted on: November, 2008
Today’s world is facing a threat in form of terrorism, environmental dangers and financial meltdown. But never fear, Superhero “IRON MAN” is here.
BIG Home Video, in association with Paramount Home Entertainment Global, is proud to unveil one of Marvel’s most popular and timeless superheroes of all time “Iron Man”, on Home Video in India. A timeless character, a theme full of courage, romance and heroism will make you reconnect to a more authentic appreciation of this world. Iron Man is not your typical super hero…his super power is derived from intellect and ambition. Iron Man grossed $572 million theatrically worldwide, making it the 21st highest grossing American film of all time.
Robert Downey Jr.’s performance is being termed as comeback of the year by most critics. He really is the reason for Iron Man's success, too. Deploying the bewildered little-boy-lost look that has made it easy to forgive his off-screen indiscretions, Downey is Tony Stark – a multi-billionaire and jet-setting genius-industrialist, who when captured in enemy territory, builds a high-tech suit of armor to escape. Now, he's on a mission to save the world as a hero who's built, not born, to be unlike any other. Director Jon Favreau makes the calls on the right-time for the actor to be at his inspired best. Robert Downey Jr. as the “Suited Up” manages to inject plenty of fun and ensures no tortured soul. . The movie also strikes high because of its zippy satirical script, roster of fine actors – including Jeff Bridges, Gwyneth Paltrow and Terrence Howard.
BIG Home Video promises a plethora of marketing jewels to make it easy for you to own this must-have DVD. A tie-up with key Music World outlets across the country is in place for an exclusive focus on Iron Man. As part of this tie-up, consumers can win early bird prizes and take part in a contest to win Iron Man premiums. Planet M chain of outlets, as part of a special focus on Iron Man, is organizing a consumer contest at its key stores across the country.
Iron Man has also been released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu dubs. Home Video sales for Hollywood films have primarily been restricted to the urban population in India. In an effort to challenge this paradigm, BIG Home Video has organized mobile van activities in 47 towns spread across Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab and Uttaranchal, to create awareness for the dubs.
A tie-up with BIG FM the radio partner will promote the Home Video via RJ mentions and contests. Innovative promotions will be created with the online partners Zapak.com. A special micro-site has been created on Zapak where customers can download exclusive wall-papers, screen-savers and play the online game.
