Iron Men and Bicycle Thieves at the Movies

Iron Man 2  (Opening everywhere)
Director: Jon Favreau
With: Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Mickey Rourke, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Sam Rockwell, Samuel L. Jackson

Second time around can be a problem for a movie franchise.  We already know the actors and situations, there are no real surprises in the general idea of the series, and there is always the danger of the so-called “sophomore slump.”
