Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

If you ever wondered how much RDjr is pulling down...

Whatever contract Downey signed when he agreed to appear in multiple movies as Iron Man allowed him a share of The Avengers' payday far bigger than anyone could have anticipated. The Hollywood Reporter recently suggested that the true figure was around $50 million. It's not the kind of thing most actors are prepared to talk about, but I ask Downey anyway.

"Yeah," he says, smiling.

Is that number about right?

"Yeah." A broader smile.

That's amazing.

"Isn't that crazy?" he says. "They're so pissed. I can't believe it. I'm what's known as 'a strategic cost.' "

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

It's been awhile since I took micro-economics and decided to refresh myself on the term.

Strategic Cost: All costs incurred by any business can be categorized as either a strategic cost or a non-strategic cost. Strategic costs are defined as any cost that directly bring in business and improve the bottom line. The sales team is a strategic cost but the finance department is not. Marketing is strategic (if it is fulfilling its function), but the legal department is non-strategic.

Non-Strategic costs are all other costs. That is, they may be necessary to run the business but do not directly contribute to the bottom line.


So then the correct application is that RDJ as Tony Stark is needed to improve the bottom line. Recasting Banner is non-strategic.

Sound about right?

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

First review I've seen is below. The Guardian is far from blockbuster-friendly but Peter Bradshaw has given it 4 stars and is generally very enthusiastic: 'smart, funny and spectacular.' Might be considered (very) mildly spoilerific.

^ You should put that video under a Spoiler Box since that scene would be considered a pretty huge Spoiler.

Luckily I looked away before it could load.

Understandable. This is perhaps the most anticipated film of the year, to this point.

Regal and AMC Halt ‘Iron Man 3′ Ticket Sales Due to Disney Dispute

Marvel fans’ plans to watch Iron Man 3 on opening weekend may be stymied by a dispute between Disney and the country’s two biggest movie theater chains, AMC and Regal. The exhibitors have halted advance ticket sales of the Marvel Studios sequel in response to an argument over how box office revenue is split.

If a resolution is not reached, Iron Man 3 may not play at all on AMC and Regal’s combined 800+ theaters nationwide. And even if it is, missing so many days of pre-sales could take a big bite out of Iron Man 3‘s opening weekend box office. Hit the jump to keep reading.

The dispute, which first flared up several days ago, came about when Disney sought to renegotiate its terms with the cinema chains. The new deal would give the studio a much larger proportion of box office revenues for Iron Man 3 and possibly its other upcoming releases as well. “It goes well beyond anything I have seen in my time in the industry,” said AMC CEO Gerry Lopez. “It’s enough for us to pause and push back.”

What this means for Marvel fans is that online ticketing is not currently available for Iron Man 3 at Regal or AMC locations. The Wall Street Journal notes that Cinemark, the country’s third-biggest chain, isn’t selling Iron Man 3 tickets either, though they aren’t sure whether Cinemark is also involved in the clash with Disney.
What the HELL is going on? Stop being so greedy, Disney!
