Already a hit

Even before its official U.S. opening Friday (there are preview screenings tonight), the PG-13-rated "Iron Man 3" is a big fat hit, chalking up well over $200 million in worldwide box office.

In "IM3," Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark faces post-"Avengers" fatigue, a new global terrorist, fire-breathing mutants and some unfinished business from the past.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall co-star.

At Beacon Cinema in Pittsfield, Berkshire Mall Cinema 10 in Lanesborough, Crandell Theatre in Chatham, N.Y., North Adams Movieplex 8, and Triplex Cinema in Great Barrington.
