Iceland volcano forces “Iron Man 2” premiere to move to LA

Marvel and Paramount Pictures have just announced that the “Iron Man 2” premiere will be moved from London to Los Angeles, to avoid any disruption in air travel due to the recent volcano ash from Iceland. The premiere was slated to take place on April 26 and stars Robert Downey Dr., Mickey Rourke, Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson were all slated to fly out for the event.

According to BBC, the first “Iron Man” film raked in $318 million back in 2008, and we can only expect that this one will do just as well. They also report that the original screening in London will still take place, just without the red carpet and the stars.

    This is a wise move, considering most of them wouldn’t even get there or if they did, could potentially get stuck there.

    Wow, first Coachella and now this, I wonder what else is going to be affected, since it looks like the volcano isn’t going to stop anytime soon
