Iron Man 3 broke box office records this weekend, earning $175.3 million - the second biggest opening after The Avengers (which also stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man), which took in $207.4 million when it debuted.

There's a reason why action films want to cast Tom Cruise - one of today's highest-paid actors - and the numbers from his latest film's weekend debut certainly spell it out.
His futuristic sci-fi flick Oblivion took the number one spot at the box office this weekend with $38.1 million, bumping down last week's top film 42 down to second place with $18 million. The animated family film The Croods stayed put at number three with a solid $9.5 million while Scary Movie 5 fell two spots to number four with $6.2 million. G.I. Joe: Retaliation rounded out the top five with $5.7 million.

Lindsay Lohan is a "troubled human," according to Scary Movie 5 writer-producer David Zucker. The 26-year-old star has the potential to be a "really good" actress if she puts her wild antics behind after completing her upcoming 90-day stint in rehab as part of her plea deal on charges of lying to police about driving during a car crash in June 2012.
Speaking at the Hollywood premiere of the new horror/comedy sequel at the ArcLight Cimenas Cinerama Dome, David told the New York Daily News, "She's a troubled human and she was late a lot to the set, but she knew her lines and she's a good actress. This seems to be the business for all these addictions and craziness. Anybody has the potential to come back and straighten out."
Lindsay arrived fashionably late to the premiere, sauntering into the cinema 30 minutes after her co-stars and muttering, "Jesus!" when she saw how many photographers were waiting to catch a glimpse of her. One of her entourage insisted, "She's really happy to be here."
Lindsay Lohan reportedly refused to kiss Charlie Sheen in Scary Movie 5. The 26-year-old actress had been expected to smooch the Anger Management star three times during their bedroom scene, but wouldn't comply with the request because of her co-star's wild sexual history.
According to gossip website TMZ, it is unknown what Lindsay's specific objections were, but both she and Charlie had had to sign release forms confirming they did not have cold sores. The 26-year-old star has told friends she warned producers ahead of shooting that she didn't want to kiss Charlie, but script changes weren't made until it was time to shoot the scene. A body double was drafted in for some parts, while others were written out entirely.
Lindsay Lohan has filmed a sex scene with Charlie Sheen for Scary Movie 5.
The 26-year-old actress suffered a meltdown earlier this week when she refused to film a scene for the comedy movie which allegedly poked fun of her public image, but she has now been on set and been in bed with Charlie. "Charlie and Lindsay filmed a love scene. The scene they were shooting for the movie was of them in bed together," an insider said. The source added that they even "shared some playful pillow talk during shooting," commenting, "They were ad-libbing. They were joking that they've both had a lot of issues over the past couple of years."
Lindsay Lohan "freaked out" and refused to film scenes in Scary Movie 5.
The 26-year-old actress - who has battled drink and drug problems in the past - allegedly tried to avoid a scene ridiculing her troubles, so she missed her flight to the set in Atlanta on Sunday and went to hospital claiming to be suffering from "walking pneumonia."
"Lindsay missed every meeting she had for the film, including script reads and wardrobe meetings. Then she missed her flight to Atlanta on Sunday to shoot the movie. The producers had been getting signs Friday that she was a mess, and would not be fit to work. She is under contract - so to get out of it, she had to prove that she was sick. She tried to prove she has walking pneumonia," an insider told The New York Post.
Lindsay is thought to be particularly concerned about the horror spoof's script - which features a kiss with co-star Charlie Sheen - because of how much it pokes fun at her.
