One of the many perks Robert Downey Jr. gets with each new "Iron Man" sequel (besides a substantially bigger paycheck) is spending less time in those hot-rod red suits and more time in his trailer watching "Downton Abbey" with Jon Favreau.
With "Iron Man Three" rocketing to the top of the global box office, we thought we'd calculate just how much RDJ's Tony Stark has been slacking with each ensuing installment, leaving Rhodey and Pepper Potts to do the dirty work.

It's hard to believe that the guy who played Ghandi and the guy who's now playing one of Marvel's most notorious supervillains is, well, the same guy. Sir Ben Kingsley's got more range than a sniper rifle, and he's just as spot-on accurate with all of his characterizations, whether they're dedicated to saving the world or destroying it. Get More »
Tom Cruise does a lost more in his movies than just flash his million-dollar smile and have nervous breakdowns in locker rooms with Cuba Gooding Jr., you know. Over the course of his nearly 40 years in movies, Cruise has taken on a wide variety of formidable enemies, whether they be made of flesh and blood or something else. Like any true movie hero, the man just can't get away from conflict.
In honor of the release of "Oblivion," which has Cruise taking on yet another new opponent, we've created an infographic that illustrates just how much fightin' Tom has done over the years — and who (or what) has been on the receiving end of his furious wrath.

Behold, the comedic genius of Will Ferrell.
We're not just throwing that term around lightly, you know. Will Ferrell is actually an official Comedic Genius, or at least he will be when he's presented with the "Comedic Genius" award at this year's MTV Movie Awards.
Not convinced of Ferrell's comedic genius? Check out the Ferrell Wheel below to see the many hilarious — and, in many cases, endlessly quotable — characters he's created over the years. Really, how is Albert Einstein more a "genius" than the man who often removes his shirt to reveal his hysterically out-of-shape bodice to the chortling masses?

The dinosaurs in the "Jurassic Park" movies sure do kill a lot of people (and sometimes dogs and toilets). But which dinos had the highest levels of prehistoric hunger/bloodlust? Our infographic reveals which of the beasties proved Dr. Ian Malcolm's Chaos Theory of "Nature will find a way" the most. And by "will find a way" we mean "will destroy you."

Ignoring the fact that Colin Farrell's name sounds just about as Irish as it gets, there's still a shred of possibility that the southern drawl he spits as Jesse James throughout "American Outlaws" actually fooled a few theatergoers into thinking that this bushy-eyebrowed ladykiller was actually born a stars n' stripes yankee.
Let's face it: Farrell -- who currently stars in the new crime thriller "Dead Man Down" -- is a verbal chameleon, a man who has effortlessly toggled the fader on his pipes between his real Dublin-derived brogue and a convincing down-home All-American inflection throughout his two-decade-long career. Practically every role he's taken on has fit somewhere between those two points, but you'd have to subject yourself to a full-on Farrell filmography marathon to know just where each film ranks within his verbal spectrum. Accent charting clearly can't be accomplished overnight, especially when Colin Farrell is involved. Get More »
"Man, let's go see a movie! You know, the one where a bunch of bros go out to celebrate another bro's milestone. Madness, shots, nudity and general hijinks follow! Laugh riot!"
"Yeah, dude! 'The Hangover' was so great, wasn't it?"
"No, I was talking about '21 and Over.'"

Quick! What does Superman look like? Not a tough question, considering the caped crusader is an iconic American superhero whose noble good looks both in and out of character (hubba hubba, Clark Kent!) are unforgettable.
Steve Younis, the guy behind Superman Homepage, has cobbled together an extensive, illustrated poster that details the ever-changing evolution of Superman's "looks" since Joe Shuster created him 75 years ago. To be fair, not much has changed: he's all deep, soulful eyes, jet black hair with a hue of blue and a dangling wisp, and a jawline so pronounced, it could cut like a knife.
The one thing to never change, though? That beloved cape that lets Superman fly through the air. Oh yeah, and, also, that whole "It's a bird, its's a plane!" thing. Will they ever learn it's the friggin' Man of Steel?
