that so clearly resonates with IMAX audiences around the world." 
About IRON MAN 3™ 
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?
