First official ‘Iron Man 3’ poster released

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — One day away from the release of the first trailer for “Iron Man 3,” Marvel has released the first official poster for the movie shot primarily in and around Wilmington.

The poster shows Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr., standing in front of a wall of Iron Man suits in what Marvel says is his “Hall of Armor.” It is similar to the first official photo released from the production back in June, which showed Downey in basically the same spot in the same room.

Yesterday, Marvel released a 15-second teaser trailer for the movie that shows some shots from Wilmington. The full trailer is due out tomorrow.

“Iron Man 3” is scheduled to hit theaters May 3, 2013.

Explosives truck crashes, closing I-85 in NC

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

ARCHDALE, NC (AP) — Motorists on Interstate 85 in North Carolina are forced to detour, and homes and a school are evacuated after a tractor-trailer carrying explosives overturned.

The North Carolina Transportation Department says the Monday morning crash in Archdale near High Point is expected to keep I-85 closed in both directions until Monday evening.

A Randolph County Schools spokeswoman said nearby Trindale Elementary School was evacuated as a precaution just as the school day started.

Randolph County EMS says the crash happened around 7 a.m. The truck was carrying an ammonium nitrate slurry and blasting caps. Authorities say the explosives inside the truck were “stable” and all ignition sources removed.

The truck driver was taken to High Point Regional Hospital, then flown to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem.
