Three Jaeger-LeCoultre timepieces co-star with Robert Downey Jr. in the soon to be released Iron Man 2. In the film, Downey, playing billionaire inventor Tony Stark, sports the Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX 3 Tourbillion in Platinum, a Master Grand Tourbillon 1833, and a Reverso Grande 985. The film, based on the Marvel comics super hero Iron Man, reunites the Oscar-nominated Downey with director Jon Favreau. Gwyneth Paltrow reprises her role as Pepper Potts, and Don Cheadle co-stars as James “Rhodey” Rhodes. Scarlett Johansson, Mickey Rourke, and Samuel L. Jackson also appear.
In Iron Man 2, the world is aware that Stark is the armored Super Hero Iron Man, not to mention a guy with some great watches. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information with slip into the wrong hands. Unwilling to let go of his invention, Stark, with Pepper Potts and Rhodey Rhodes at his side, must forge new alliances, and confront powerful enemies.
“Jaeger-LeCoultre is thrilled to have our timepieces showcased on the wonderful character of Tony Stark played by the phenomenal actor Robert Downey Jr.” said Jaeger-LeCoultre CEO Jerome Lambert. “We have no doubt the film will be a fantastic success.”
The film had its Los Angeles premier on April 26 and it opens nationwide on May 7.
