It was about as gala as a gala movie premiere can be.  Robert Downey Jr. led the all-star cast as Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre hosted the humongous Iron Man 3 premiere Wednesday.  Of course, everybody's gonna get a chance to check this one out for themselves starting May 3, but it's always fun to check out what happens when Hollywood pulls out all the stops for one of these.  So, here's a look at the evening along the red carpet…



And if you wanna see what the event was like for the "little people"…you know, those non-celebrities who couldn't get inside the big event?  Well, they spent the evening out on Hollywood Boulevard, going about their business as usual — before they were run down by CraveOnline's Nash Herrington.  Not actually run down, like, with a car run down…but you get the idea.  Nash (who apparently got hit in the head shortly before this taping) proceeded to ask those unsuspecting folks a bunch of…well…odd questions. 

Check out what happened.
