As Marvel Studios' "Iron Man 3" draws closer to release in less than one month, more television spots, trailers and promotional material has begun to filter through online. Although not as action-packed as recent trailers, the new 47-second clip posted by Yahoo! Movies is exciting nonetheless, featuring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark speaking with assembled press, extending an open "holiday greeting" to Sir Ben Kingsley's The Mandarin, challenging the film's villain to a battle and announcing his home address to reporters.

Check out the film's official synopsis below.

Marvel Studios' "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?

Directed by Shane Black, "Iron Man 3" also stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Jon Favreau, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton. It opens May 3.
