Globally, "Iron Man 3" raked in $680.1 million in only 12 days.
Shane Black's third installment of the popular franchise brings back Robert Downey Jr.("Sherlock Holmes") as Tony Stark and Gwyneth Paltrow("Contagion") as Pepper Potts. The film also features Don Cheadle("Crash"), Guy Pearce("The Hurt Locker"), Rebecca Hall("The Awakening"), Jon Favreau("Identity Thief"), and Sir Ben Kingsley("Hugo").
Black, who co-wrote the script for "Iron Man 3" has just been announced to direct the film adaptation of Tsugumi Ohba's "Death Note", the Japanese manga series(art by Takeshi Obata). It will be interesting to see what he does with this very well-known work.
