"Iron Man 3" Hits Theaters Today . . . Here's What You Need to Know Screenings of "Iron Man 3" in China will feature extra fog, strobe lights and wind. Now the bad news: they will also feature Gwyneth Paltrow.
The returning cast includes Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as Rhodey, Jon Favreau as Happy, and Paul Bettany as the voice of Jarvis.
After the events of "The Avengers", Tony Stark is still struggling with the aftermath of that alien invasion. He's become withdrawn and obsessed with getting ready for the next big threat, so he's been doing nothing but building new suits. This movie starts with him having FORTY-TWO variations.
And the latest version, the Mark XLII, allows him to summon the suit to himself by using sub-dermal implants.
Ben Kingsley plays the Mandarin, who comic fans know to be one of Iron Man's greatest enemies He's the movie's main villain, but Tony also has to fight some super-powered humans who've been genetically enhanced by some bio-technology called Extremis that, among other things, gives them to power to heal themselves.

I recommend you head over to Comic Headquarters on Telegraph to celebrate!

Maybe I’ll see you there!
In honor of the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby tomorrow . . . we now give you the Top Things You Didn't Know About the Kentucky Derby.
It's the only sport where the winner celebrates by publicly defecating.
The winning jockey gets to hold up a lamp in a rich person's front yard.
If you haven't seen it in person, you really . . . shouldn't.
Because that would require going to Kentucky.
Horse racing was only dubbed the "sport of kings" after narrowly beating out backyard wrestling.
The mint julep is the official drink of the Kentucky Derby.
The rest of the year, the most popular drink in Kentucky is meth.
The louder the hat, the bigger the insecurity complex.
The event is 139 years old, but we're still waiting for the first brave horse to step forward and admit he's gay.
Dash cam video from REESE WITHERSPOON'S arrest last month in Atlanta hit the web yesterday, and it's pretty awesome. The clip shows Reese's husband Jim Toth already in cuffs, when Reese pops into the picture and tries to get involved. By this time the cop has obviously already had enough of her, because he cuffs her and puts her in his car.
Along the way, Reese delivers some classic lines, such as . . . "I'm a U.S. citizen. I am allowed to stand on American ground and ask any question I want to ask." "This is beyond. This is beyond. This is harassment. I have done NOTHING against the law." "I have to obey your orders?" "I'm obstructing your justice? Really? I'm being anti-American? Wow . . . interesting."
But the BEST part of the video is the very end, after Reese is safely tucked away in the backseat of the squad car. Jim tells the cop, quote, "I'm sorry. I had nothing to do with that."
Jim pleaded guilty to DUI, and he'll get 40 hours of community service. He also has to attend an alcohol education program and he gets 12 months of probation.
Meanwhile . . .Reese entered a plea of no contest for disorderly conduct yesterday. All she has to do is pay a $213 fine.
