‘Iron Man 3′ Imagined As A 16-Bit Video Game Speed Run [Video]

Want to watch Iron Man 3 but don’t have the patience to either wait for its release on Blu-ray/DVD/digital on September 24… or sit through its 130 run time? YouTube channel Movieclips Trailers’ original 16-bit video game style short could be for you (also, maybe a trip to your physician about a mild relaxant?). Zipping through the film’s entire story in less than four minutes, the speed run style animation pixelates each plot point with the kind of efficiency you’d expect from a retro side scroller action game.

The fact that the vid acts as a summary does mean that it includes spoilers for those of you who haven’t seen the movie already, so proceed with some caution below.

Two small spoiler-free gripes: Gwyneth Paltrow’s abs could use about 400 times the definition and there’s no 16-bit after credits scene. All told, though, we wouldn’t mind seeing more of these for Marvel’s other movies.
