It’s firmly blockbuster season in the states, as Iron Man opens on well over 4000 screens; with Made of Honor and Son on Rambow also opening in counterprogramming moves by rival studios, hoping to get business from people who couldn’t get into sold out screenings of Iron Man. The reviewers have eaten up the Robert Downey Jnr. starring comic book adaption, and it’s officially the best reviewed film of the year, garnering a staggeringly positive 96% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
