Robert Downey Jr is fully expected to rule theaters this weekend, as Iron Man 3 is the only major film set for wide release. The third installment of the Marvel franchise is already posting major numbers in international markets, so it should easily unseat Michael Bay's Pain & Gain from #1 domestically. If you're looking for a little less of a spectacle, there is also Generation Um... with Keanu Reeves and The Iceman opening in limited release. The Iceman has an all-star cast including: Michael Shannon, Ray Liotta, James Franco, Winona Ryder and Captain America himself- Chris Evans.
Big plans for the girls from TLC: T-Boz, Left Eye, Chilli... They announced a new album is in the works, along with a VH1 TV movie.

Who would you pay to see as a hologram? Hit me up on twitter!
