NC officials get early screening of 'Iron Man 3'


WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) — The producers of a big-budget Hollywood film shot largely in North Carolina are holding a special screening in Wilmington for state leaders and the former U.S. senator who now heads the film industry's lobbying group.

State Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker and local cast and crew get an early screening Sunday of "Iron Man 3," which was filmed in Wilmington. The movie hits theaters on Friday.

The Legislature in 2010 boosted incentives to land big-name productions by allowing film companies to recoup 25 percent of qualifying spending.

North Carolina Film Office Director Aaron Syrett says the film screening is a way for the production to give back to the community. The movie stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley and Don Cheadle.
