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!

Phew! Close one!
In New York this morning, a federal judge dismissed a massive lawsuit against Michael Jackson filed by AllGood Entertainment. Before MJ's demise, the company claimed that Jackson's agent had signed his client up for a string of Jackson family reunion shows. By AllGood's point of view, agreeing to do the London concerts was a breach of contract and they wanted $300 million to compensate.
Well, that's not happening, since none of the Jackson brothers, including Michael, ever signed any paperwork agreeing to the gig. Therefore, he deemed the whole matter too "sketchy to be enforceable."
Howard Weitzman, the lawyer for the Michael Jackson Estate, told sources, "This case never had any merit and the claim was frivolous from day one."
Maybe Michael can rest a bit more peacefully now.
