NYSE: Iron Man's a bell-ringer in New York

Robert Downey Jr brought some Hollywood glamour to the New York Stock Exchange trading floor yesterday, ringing the opening bell to promote his new movie, Iron Man 3.

The Disney feature based on the Marvel comic strip of the same name will open in the US this week. On Sunday, Disney said the movie had raked in $195m in its first weekend overseas, smashing the $185m international opening record by Avengers Assemble.
