'Iron Man 3' is playing this weekend.
Robert Downey Jr. and gang are back for the third "Iron Man" installment. "Iron Man 3" is rated PG-13 and runs two hours and 20 minutes. Find movies playing in Cartersville by using our Moviefone locator above. Here's what the critics are saying: This weekend, the summer movie season kicks off in spectacular fashion . . . with Disney and Marvel's "Iron Man 3." The third film in the series and the fourth featuring national treasure Robert Downey Jr. as genius billionaire playboy-philanthropist Tony Stark (after last summer's superhero free-for-all "The Avengers"), it raises the stakes considerably, to the point that, should RDJ never want to put on the robotic suit again, the story would be nicely and tidily resolved.

Winner Stacie Stamper: "Everybody has a way to give."
The winner of the Patch Easter PEEPs contest is a diorama that shows a little marshmallow figure in a hard hat helping to build a home while other PEEPs cheer him (or her?) on.
