$315 Million Box Office Smash Debuts September 30, 2008 in Ultimate Edition Two-Disc Sets Exploding with Hours of Behind-the-Scenes Bonus Features, Deleted Scenes, Robert Downey Jr.'s Screen Test and Much, Much More

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Aug. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Delivering non-stop action and excitement from a Super Hero who boasts not only unique powers, but also irresistible charm, penetrating intelligence and a wry wit, Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures' worldwide box office sensation IRON MAN soars onto DVD and Blu-ray on September 30, 2008. Kicking off the fourth quarter, Paramount Home Entertainment presents spectacular Ultimate Edition two-disc sets on both DVD and Blu-ray, as well as in a single-disc DVD. IRON MAN thrilled both critics and audiences around the world with its captivating story and stunning visual effects. Called "spectacular" (Rolling Stone) and "a thrill-a-minute blockbuster" ("Reel Talk"), the film features an all-star cast including Academy Award(R) nominees Robert Downey Jr. (Zodiac, Chaplin), Jeff Bridges (The Contender) and Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow) and Oscar(R) winner Gwyneth Paltrow (Shakespeare In Love) and was directed by Jon Favreau (Elf).

Earning over $315 million in the domestic box office to date, IRON MAN lifts off with high-speed, high-flying action when jet-setting industrialist Tony Stark survives an unexpected attack in enemy territory and escapes by building a high-tech robotic suit of armor. When he uncovers a nefarious plot with global implications, he dons his powerful armor and vows to protect the world as Iron Man. Straight from the pages of the legendary comic book, IRON MAN is a hero who is built -- not born -- to be unlike any other!

The IRON MAN Ultimate Edition two-disc sets are super-charged with hours of explosive bonus features that take viewers inside the suit of self-made Super Hero Tony Stark and his invincible alter ego.
