Gwyneth Paltrow has enjoyed a small taste of the superhero lifestyle, and now she wants MORE!
In Iron Man 3, Pepper Potts FINALLY gets the chance to suit up and rock her Rescue armor, and the actress says she LOVED every minute of it!
"She’s in the suit and flying around, and I loved doing the stunts…. I felt like I should’ve been doing this my whole life. It’s like, 'Why am I doing all these period films? It’s so boring.'"
Are we smelling a career change for Mrs. Paltrow? She went on to say:
After midnight, fans let it all hang out. And by it, we mean all the money in their pockets.
After a heroic press tour by Robert Downey, Jr., Iron Man 3 had a super-sized midnight premiere, taking in an estimated $15.6 million overnight.
The midnight numbers mark a franchise record, more than doubling Iron Man 2's numbers and dwarfing the original's $1.5 mil.
This brings the film's international box office earnings to $361 million, and the U.S. is just getting started!
The flick is expected to remain invincible through the weekend and hit somewhere around $150 MILLION!
Wondering where this display of power ranks amongst the other blockbusters of recent years? If those estimates are right, IM3 will be lucky number 13.
Who can resist Robert Downey Jr. and hot masses of man-metal?!
Apparently no one!
Even though Iron Man 3 premieres TONIGHT in the United States, it has already garnered $300 million in international box office sales in a little less than a week, shattering previous records.
The Marvel flick has now surpassed the first Iron Man film ($267 million), Thor ($268 million), and Captain America: The First Avenger ($192 million) in first week international sales, and its only rival is Iron Man 2 ($311.5 million)…
However the franchise's third installment is expected to beat those numbers by the end of the day.
Oh man, it's going to be a Tony Stark style party at the movie theaters tonight at midnight if the buzz in anything to go by!
Love her or hate her, Gwyneth Paltrow is having one hell of a year!
The World's Most Beautiful woman posed with Iron Man 3 star Robert Downey Jr. for the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly, and it looks like Tony Stark's toys aren't just for the boys anymore!
In the latest installment of the Iron Man series, we finally get to see Pepper Potts' transformation into a full-on badass as she suits up and becomes Rescue!
Gwynnie says she's SUPER excited to see her character's growth in what hopefully won't be the last film of the franchise, saying:
