As we ascertained when the first teaser trailer came out in October, Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr.) gets attacked on his home turf. And in the new 30-second teaser trailer airing during this Sunday's Super Bowl game, we see more footage of the annihilation. (See a preview in the "Big Game Spot Teaser" below. The first full trailer will appear here on Yahoo! Movies shortly after the teaser spot airs on Sunday.)

We also see terrorist leader The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) and his 10 powerful rings -- leaving us wondering if the rings will somehow transform into the alien artifacts depicted in the original comic. And how on earth is he behind the air attack on Stark's house?
What has us even more curious about the new television spot and subsequent trailer is the ultra-modern home itself and how it would fit into the real world. Stark's multistory house has a vast subterranean workshop where he creates and repairs his suits. The home is jam-packed with cool mechanized features -- including roll-away windows that enable Stark's speedy, suited up takeoffs.

The Razor last sold for $14 million. Chump change for Stark - the business head of Stark Industries.
But in the film, Stark lives in Malibu -- where properties are valued even higher than the already pricey properties of La Jolla. If Stark's home was real, and in Malibu, it would go for $40 million, says Shen Schulz of Sotheby's International realty. And Stark's celebrity neighbors, according to Schulz, would be Pink, Kenny G, Barbra Streisand (whose home is said to be worth $12 million), and Owen Wilson.
