“IRON MAN 2″ COUNTDOWN: 13 DAYS

Tony Stark breaks all the rules (even the one that says superheroes must keep a secret identity), and he always seems to comes out on top — that’s why we love him. But now comes “Iron Man 2,” a film about secret dangers, the sins of the father and the nasty price of modern celebrity. The movie lands May 7 in the U.S., and every day until then, we’ll have behind-the-scenes scoops on the summer’s most anticipated film and a look at all things Iron Man.

DJ AM in Iron Man 2

This week we gave you the inside scoop on why “Iron Man 2” is dedicated to the late Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM, and how his cameo in the film adds a bittersweet backbeat to the heroic summer movie. Today we follow that up with an exclusive first look at that scene, a birthday party for Tony Stark at the billionaire’s sea-bluff estate. Goldstein died just weeks later in an accidental drug overdose in New York City.

    John I guess you are a recent arrival on planet Earth or haven't paid much attention while you've been here.
    "accidental drug overdose???? This makes no sense. as opposed to what ? an on purpose drug overdose???? who does that??"
    The suicide rate increased in the United States in 2009 for the first time in a decade and intentional overdose/poisioning is one of the most popular methods, especially among women. In an overdose case, coroner and police investigation go toward making a legal determination of whether it was a suicide or drug-user's misadventure.
