Iron Man 3 soundtrack details, plus China to get an exclusive alternate cut of the movie

Mar. 29, 2013by: Alex Maidy

So those IRON MAN 3 scenes filmed in China are not just additions to the final film but in fact part of an entirely alternate cut of the movie. In fact, China will be getting a radically different version of the Marvel movie. IRON MAN 3 represents a new era for Hollywood movies as the Asian market will continue to grow as the number one consumer of American films outside of the United States.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Chinese cut of IRON MAN 3 will differ greatly from what we will see here in North America.

All cuts will feature scenes shot in Beijing, product placement Chinese electronics manufacturer TCL, and co-star A-Lister Wang Xueqi, but a special version cut for the world's most populous nation will also boast "specially prepared bonus footage" and an appearance by megastar Fan Bingbing.

I hope that we get to see this alternate cut of the film on a Blu-ray release of IRON MAN 3, mainly because I want to see how different it truly is. Judging from the international trailer, we have the additional characters and scenes in Beijing, but how do they fit into the narrative structure of the movie? I get that the villain is The Mandarin, but will this somehow tie into his Chinese roots? It remains to be seen.

The other IRON MAN 3 news is the reveal of the tracklisting for the soundtrack. This appears to differ greatly from the IRON MAN 2 soundtrack which seemed to exclusively feature AC/DC songs. This new soundtrack "inspired by" the movie is subtitled "Heroes Fall" and is made up entirely of indie rock bands. I recognized about half of these bands right away and, while I am not sure they exactly seem very IRON MAN-like, they will definitely have more marketability with the target demographic than AC/DC did. Check out the tracklisting below.

1. "Ready Aim Fire" - Imagine Dragons
2. "Some Kind of Joke" - AWOLNATION
3. "Some Kind of Monster" - Neon Trees
4. "American Blood" - Passion Pit
5. "No Time" - Rogue Wave
6. "One Minute More" - Capital Cities
7. "Back To The Start" - Mr Little Jeans
8. "Keep Moving" - Andrew Stockdale (of Wolfmother)
9. "Redemption" - Redlight King
10. "Big Bad Wolves" - Walk The Moon
11. "BAD GUY" 3OH!3
12. "Let's Go All The Way" - The Wondergirls featuring Ashley Hamilton and Robbie Williams

IRON MAN 3 will open here in North America on May 3, 2013 and in China on April 25, 2013. The soundtrack will hit stores April 30th.

Pathetic

Interesting, I posted saying that this was pathetic and spineless for the studio to kowtow to communists like this and the post goes away. I guess Marvel is paying to have posts removed now?

as much as this bothers me as Hollywood pandering taken to a new level, this makes incredible business sense. go to the most populated market on Earth, slide in some local superstars and locales, and BOOM. triple your international box office. imagine if they started making cuts of Asian action movies with Channing Tatum and Bruce Willis. a movie that was totally ignored here before would get at least some play, DVD and netflix action.

As long as it doesn't screw around with the continuity, I'm fine. I just hope this isn't a regular practice.

I was hoping they would keep the AC/DC trend going. Having appeared in both Iron Man films and Avengers, AC/DC to me is the musical identity of the character. Also, I like AC/DC. Besides, do a lot of people still buy these "Soundtracks" anyways? Seems so 90's to me.

Not really digging the Indie stuff...we better at least get a new Ghostface track with this flick.

What sucks is the Iron Man 2 soundtrack didn't have any of the awesome songs that were in the actual movie. Daft Punk, the Clash, Queen, Beastie Boys, Tupac...

Not a concern of mine

Maybe this is the real reason Mandarin isn't Asian looking? Concessions were possibly made? Just think about it, because it would make perfect sense. That said, I have no problem with the alternative cut. I don't have to fucking watch it.

I see no problem with alternate cuts for China, I mean if they help fund a movie & allow studios to film there why not? People need to realize China has very strict rules that are more about tradition than political or financial. For a big movie like Iron Man 3 this could change how movies are made.

Soundtrack looks great really & while I love AC/Dc it's good to see these indie bands on the soundtrack of such a big movie. It worked for the Avengers soundtrack, which was a great one as well.

Let's see. In the title 美國隊長 "隊長" means "Captain" and "美國" means "America" so no.

EDIT: Damn. Joblo doesn't render Chinese characters. :(

Either way or cut of the film, the film is going to be awesome.

I oppose this

I understand WHY they're doing it, but this is some tyrannical, intolerant shit. Go make your own Iron Man-type movie with your own actors, release it in Asia and be done with it. This is such propaganda. Why do Asian countries like China and North Korea do this? These people are fucking insane.
