Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) again attempts to save the world — and keep dear Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) out of danger — in Iron Man 3, opening this week. If you're not already convinced you need to see the new installment, check out all the action-packed pictures of Downey, Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Don Cheadle, and the rest of the cast.
After great Iron Man movies and an Avengers film, it's fair to assume that it's only a matter of time before we get tired of seeing these guys. But Iron Man 3 is not only equally fantastic as its predecessors; it's also the most emotional and most focused installment in the franchise to date. The secret to the success of the film? Giving the audience something they haven't seen before: a different side of Tony, a brand-new suit, and a villain that hits very close to home. Of course, the magic of Robert Downey Jr. is the key ingredient in making these films endlessly fun.
Iron Man 3 opens to the tune of Eiffel 65's song "Blue," which is fitting not just as a cue to the introductory '90s flashback, but because it describes Tony Stark's present-day state of mind. After coming face to face with some aliens (in The Avengers), he's tired, he's anxious, and he's feeling overprotective of his girlfriend, Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow), all of which makes Tony even more relatable as a character. Superheroes: they're just like us! It doesn't help matters that there's a terrorist on the loose who calls himself The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), and Tony's penchant for getting himself into trouble quickly makes him a huge target.

Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall round out an all-star cast in Iron Man 3, and when we sat down with the duo at a recent press day for the movie, they told us what it was like to join one of the most popular film franchises in the world. Guy and Rebecca also weighed in on working with Robert Downey Jr., who Guy says is "great fun," and playing two of the movie's most morally complicated characters. Iron Man 3 hits theaters in the US on May 3. Lindsay's wardrobe provided by Clover Canyon.
Rebecca Hall plays scientist Dr. Maya Hansen in Iron Man 3, which means sharing the bulk of her scenes with Guy Pearce, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Robert Downey Jr. Despite Rebecca's own impressive acting resume, she told us she was "nervous" about showing up to set for the first time when we caught up with her at the premiere of the film last night in Hollywood. She also said she responded to the "strong" and "intelligent" roles written for the female characters in the movie.
We're suckers for ultrafeminine takes on menswear, and these latest tuxedo looks couldn't have come at a better time than wedding season. Here's why. For those who prefer not to wear a dress — and the dress code calls for something formal — actresses Rebecca Hall's and Carey Mulligan's borrowed-from-the-boys ensembles have got you covered. If you're into Rebecca's plunging Lanvin jumpsuit, which she wore for the Iron Man 3 London premiere, you can take the romper route — here's an affordable option from the Kate Young for Target collection ($80) — then jazz it up a with box clutch and ankle-strap sandals. Or you can follow suit on Carey's Victoria Beckham tuxedo cape look by sporting a tuxedo vest or blazer (with nothing underneath!), then matching it up with cropped tuxedo pants and T-strap pumps. Of course, don't forget to add sparkly baubles and a red lip to give your menswear-inspired ensemble a sexy, albeit polished, finish. Now all you have to do to get started is shop our chicest tuxedo pieces below.
January Jones, Zoe Saldana, and Renée Zellweger lent their Hollywood support at Miu Miu's Fall 2013 show in Paris today. January channeled her Mad Men character, Betty, when she dropped by the event in a retro hairdo and a Miu Miu ensemble. Meanwhile, Zoe and Renée sported black outfits and chatted with Rebecca Hall while sitting front row. Renée and Zoe have more in common than just their taste in designers since both women have previously dated Bradley Cooper.
It's a good thing that January is getting into the '60s spirit, as filming for Mad Men season six is still under way. Jon Hamm and John Slattery filmed scenes for the new season of Mad Men outside a hotel in LA yesterday while January was in the City of Light. Fans will be able to catch the show soon as a new Mad Men promo was released earlier this week, calling the April 7 premiere the "affair of the year."
Kate Moss wrapped up her bikini time in Ibiza and headed back to London yesterday. She didn't need much time to acclimate to being home after the flight. She and her husband, Jamie Hince, put on their party clothes to hit the town during the tail end of London Fashion Week. Kate went to the Serpentine Gallery for the Future Contemporaries bash, where Jamie performed with his band, The Kills. Other celebs like Princess Eugenie, Liberty Ross, One Direction's Harry Styles, and Kelly Osbourne attended as well. Kelly's boyfriend, Matthew Mosshart, was there, too — his sister Alison is Jamie's bandmate in The Kills. Kelly had a great time, and tweeted a photo of herself and Kate with the caption, "I had the best night catching up with Miss Moss and watching The Kills at the Serpentine!" Kate and Jamie wrapped up their evening at an afterparty held at Loulou's members club.
Despite their late one, Kate was out this morning for the Spring 2013 Mulberry show. She had a seat in the front row near Lana Del Rey, Rebecca Hall, Alexa Chung, and Gillian Anderson. Downton Abbey was also well represented at the presentation, with Joanna Froggatt and Elizabeth McGovern on hand to see creative director Emma Hill's latest.
Even before Drake hit the stage last night, the Bing Bar was playing host to some of the hottest events of the Sundance Film Festival. The cast of Lay the Favorite, including the always adorable Joshua Jackson, chatted about their film on Saturday afternoon, while upstairs everyone from Elizabeth Olsen to Emily Blunt hit the lounge for interviews. Elizabeth was a breakout star of last year's Sundance, and she's back again with two projects, Red Lights with Cillian Murphy and Liberal Arts which was directed by Josh Radnor. Rosemarie DeWitt actually has movies with both Emily and her husband John Kraskinsi at the festival. John stayed back in LA to promote Big Miracle for the start of the weekend, though he will be joining Emily in snowy Park City today to premiere Nobody Walks.
Joshua Jackson and his Lay the Favorite costar Rebecca Hall filmed on the streets of NYC yesterday with an adorable dog. The actor is on the East Coast following some recent travels around the country. He was in LA two weeks ago for beach parties and Beverly Hills shopping with girlfriend Diane Kruger, then Joshua was spotted shooting solo in New Orleans a few days ago. Diane stayed behind in California instead of joining Josh in Louisiana, preferring to stay at home and wear her Chanel jacket while running errands. The duo are pros at juggling their busy schedules and have been vocal about splitting their time between Europe and the US, though work often takes them to other cities around the globe.
Will Ferrell has made a name for himself playing outrageously over-the-top characters like Ron Burgundy and Ricky Bobby, but every now and then he reminds us that he's got a flair for more serious characters as well. Such is the case in the upcoming indie comedy Everything Must Go, where Ferrell plays a guy named Nick who hits rock bottom after he's fired (by none other than It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Glen Howerton) and his wife leaves him. To purge himself of reminders of what once was, Nick decides to sell all of his belongings in a yard sale — and manages to make a young friend in the process.
The story of a man who hits rock bottom and tries to rebuild his life with a new outlook has definitely been done before, but it's a treat to see Ferrell taking a break from his usual routine. The trailer is peppered with bits of dry humor and heart, with a cast that includes Rebecca Hall, Laura Dern, and Stephen Root. Have a look after the jump.
