Turns out my post earlier today that came from meer speculation was spot on. Because of the giant ash cloud that is covering most of Europe, grounding all air travel, Paramount / Marvel have decided to move the World Premiere of Iron Man 2 to LA as the stars can’t get here!
We’ve just received this press release confirming that the World Premiere of the Jon Favreau directed movie, Iron Man 2 is now going to be held in LA. It was originally going to be held in Vue Westfield in London.
Here’s what we have:
Date: Monday, April 19th, 2010
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
