AC/DC and Iron Man 2.


Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau is such a fan of AC/DC that they are responsible for the entire soundtrack for the film. Yes. The entire soundtrack.

This all came about through a unique collaboration between Marvel Studios and Columbia Records. AC/DC:  Iron Man 2, features 15 classic AC/DC songs selected from ten of the band’s studio albums, ranging from 1976 to 2008. The soundtrack has been said to be something akin to a collection of the bands greatest hits. The soundtrack will be released on April 19, 2010.

The debut video from AC/DC:  Iron Man 2 is the AC/DC’s classic album cut “Shoot To Thrill,” which was filmed live last month in Buenos Aires during the band’s highly acclaimed Black Ice World Tour.

“Jon Favreau’s vision and passion for AC/DC’s music blend seamlessly into this incredible film” said Steve Barnett, co-chairman of Columbia Records.  “The music really underscores the high energy and excitement of the film.”

“Music is an integral part of the Tony Stark and Iron Man experience, and we are pleased that Columbia and AC/DC are taking part in the franchise’s phenomenon. Through this relationship, the band is delivering fans supercharged Iron Man branded music through all our combined consumer touch points, from the movie to retail outlets and even virally with the debut of the new video,” said Tim Connors, Chief Operating Officer, Marvel Studios.

If the soundtrack isn’t exciting enough, the cast should be with Robert Downey Jr. reprising his starring role as the larger-than-life leading character, along with Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Mickey Rourke and Samuel L. Jackson. The film opens internationally beginning on April 28, 2010 and the U.S.release date is May 7, 2010.
