Which Hollywood Blockbuster Reveals The Entire Plot In The First Five Minutes?
Answer: Iron Man
In the beginning of the 2008 blockbuster Iron Man, the plot of the movie is revealed right under the noses of the viewers. Tony Stark, the movie’s protagonist, is being held hostage by captors speaking in Urdu, the national language of Pakistan. Unbeknownst to English speaking viewers, the unsubtitled conversation is actually a fourth-wall breaking conversation about the movie itself and what is about to unfold throughout the plot of the movie. The joke is later revealed to the audience when the video tape of the captors is reviewed towards the end of the movie with subtitles applied.
