HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -Iron Man 2 held off Robin Hood over the weekend and took the box office crown for the second straight week. Iron Man 2 made $53 million Friday through Sunday; Robin Hood debuted with $37 million

NBC has picked up the new drama Law & Order: Los Angeles as well as renewed Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for the 2010-11 season. But on Friday NBC said it would end its historic and record-tying airing of Law & Order when the mothership series concludes its 20th season next Monday on May 24.

Internet-sensation Greyson Chance has been signed by Interscope Records. He's just 12-years-old. Greyson grew in popularity after performing Lady Gaga's hit song Paparazzi in front of his school. Afterward, Ellen DeGeneres had the young star on her show Thursday afternoon, performing the same song. Prior to his performance, he talked to his inspiration, Lady Gaga. She advised him to stay focused and stay away from girls.  

Terrence Howard is in talks to play Motown legend Marvin Gaye. The actor says nothing's been signed yet but that he understands the gravity of taking on the role. Howard said, "Everybody who loves music will hate me if I get this one wrong."
