tony stark new year

Ain’t no party like a Tony Stark party, cuz a Tony Stark party don’t stop!  No one in the Marvel Universe throws a shindig like Iron Man’s alter ego, and traditionally, for most people, New Years Eve is the biggest party of the year. Why not spend your NYE with Tony Stark?  Now thanks to the internet, you can do just that.

You may recall that ‘Iron Man 3’ included a big New Years Eve party scene toward the beginning.  A Reddit user named TheRealClose has calculated that if you start the movie ‘Iron Man 3’ at precisely 11:55:50pm, the clock in the movie will strike midnight at exactly the same time as it does in reality.

You will probably have to practice to get the timing just right.  Keep in mind, whether you use a blu-ray/dvd or digital, it takes a moment to load.  But with a little trial and error, you should be able to time it just right.


Marvel’s ‘Iron Man 3’ pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Originally released in 2013, ‘Iron Man 3’ stars Robert Downey Jr., Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Rebecca Hall, and Guy Pearce.  It grossed $1.2 billion.
