If <i>Iron Man 3</i> "Only" Makes $300 Million This Weekend, Will Hollywood Be Disappointed?

The Iceman movie Michael Shannon
The Iceman: To my recollection, Michael Shannon has never played a contract killer before; though he seems like a good match for that job, his characters so far simply have the look of those who kill for fun or to combat personal demons, not for profit. Not only does The Iceman offer that novelty, then, it also offers more Shannon in general for those disappointed by his paltry screentime in Mud last weekend. Presumably because this movie is coming from Millennium Films, purveyor of many star-packed movies that might have rated studio releases 20 or 30 years ago, it is not a one-man show and actually features a number of other names: Chris Evans, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta, James Franco and, uh, David Schwimmer. I hesitated to add Schwimmer, but then I thought, you know, Michael Shannon may be beloved by certain film fans and Boardwalk Empire viewers, but if we're going by actual name recognition, David Schwimmer is probably way more famous. Weird, right?
