Hollywood eyes another $4 billion summer movie season

Four billion dollars over four months, four years in a row. Those are figures that might make the ego of "Iron Man" Tony Stark swell even bigger.

But the $4 billion is what Hollywood's studios will be aiming to collect at box offices during their lucrative summer film season that kicks off on Friday, starting four straight months of some of the year's biggest movies and biggest stars.

The show begins with "Iron Man 2," about defense industry billionaire Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) who builds an ultra high-tech suit that serves as a weapon. It will be followed by nearly 100 more films including a pair of remakes of 1980s titles "The Karate Kid" and "The A-Team."
