'Iron Man 3' had another huge weekend at the box-office, officially becoming one of the 10 biggest movies of all-time. But while it continues to bring people to the theater, we've got some exclusive news on when you can bring 'Iron Man 3' home on DVD and Blu-ray.
When is a $70 million opening not a success? When its predecessor opened to $75 million four years ago. This is the predicament facing 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' which opened at number one at box office while being something of a disappointment.

The only question left is...how high can it go?
If you remember last summer, Robert Downey, Jr. suffered an ankle injury while filming 'Iron Man 3' and the production hit some delays. Marvel didn't want to shut down and risk missing the May 3 release date, so they decided if they couldn't have Robert Downey, Jr. they were going to do the next best thing: make a fake Robert Downey, Jr. Did you spot Fake Tony Stark in the movie? We'll show you where and how below.

Were you a little disappointed by the 'Iron Man 3' post-credits scene? The scene that was included was cute and funny but where was the big tease; the look ahead at one of the future Marvel movies, specifically the one that would've linked 'Iron Man 3' to 'Guardians of the Galaxy?' Well if one of the stars is to be believed, Marvel had that scene ready but scrapped it. But but but why? Find out after the jump.
No one expected 'The Great Gatsby' to take number one at the box office over 'Iron Man 3' this weekend, but it did the next best thing: it opened huge at number two. There is no shame in this silver medal.
One of the most interesting stories to emerge from the production of 'Iron Man 3' was the involvement of Chinese production company DMG. The company arranged for the film to shoot several scenes in China featuring Chinese actors, but most of that footage ended up on the cutting room floor in the non-Chinese version of the finished film. However, international audiences may get a chance to see what they're missing: the footage is being transformed into a new 'Iron Man' short film.
