Overview

Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie comes to collectors' doorsteps in a massive Special Edition box set sure to delight the hardcore film fan in everyone's life. In the set, you can find the jam-packed Superman: The Movie DVD boasting a 2.35:1 widescreen picture and a stellar Dolby Digital 5.1 track to sink your teeth into. Audio extras on the disc range from a lengthy and informative commentary with Donner and creative consultant (read: screenwriter) Tom Mankiewicz to a music-only track featuring John Williams' infamous score. Three behind-the-scenes documentaries are also presented for your viewing pleasure, including "Taking Flight: The Development of Superman" (30 Minutes), "Making Superman: Filming the Legend" (31 Minutes), and "The Magic Behind the Cape" (23 Minutes). As the disc is an expanded edition, many of the film's long-lost deleted scenes are now edited back into the film, which you can access by selecting the Added Scenes section on disc one. (Superman's siege on Lex Luthor's hideout and extra top-billed Marlon Brando scenes highlight the bunch.) Other worthy mentions on the disc are a section of screen tests, additional music cues, and a teaser trailer and vintage TV spot. Now, if you don't already have the disc and are interested in owning a few collectibles from the film, then the rest of this box is calling your name. First, there's a reproduction of the film's theatrical booklet from 1978, whose vintage design and press packet stylings are a treat to look at (although interest kind of bombs after that). Next, just like most of their other Special Edition box sets, you get a special senitype film cell and eight lobby cards for your collecting enjoyment. Finally, there's a folded poster of the 27" x 40" original one-sheet included and a send away option for a rolled version, fit to be framed on any movie lover's wall. If you're serious about your collection and feel you must own the extras, then, by all means, pick this box up. However, if you already own the disc, little of the rest of this set will end up bowling you over.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A rousing big-budget spectacle of the highest order, 1978's Superman succeeds thanks to its snappy pace, a witty script and a slew of memorable performances. Director Richard Donner wanted an unknown for the tricky title role; Christopher Reeve fits the bill with a finely nuanced performance, poking fun at the Superman mystique without diminishing its power. The reliable Gene Hackman steals just about every scene he's in as smarmy archenemy Lex Luthor. In a smaller but no less memorable role, Marlon Brando was reportedly paid close to $4 million dollars for his ten-minute cameo as The Man of Steel's father. Superman proved to be another hit for Donner, following 1976's The Omen; the film would inspire three sequels of descending quality (though many argue that the second installment is in fact superior to this one).

    Universally Praised

    Even after watching the newer 'Superman Returns' movie from 2007, this one is fantastic. The story, characters, and effects are all great. This movie holds up very well all these years later and is highly recommended for any comic fan.

    Christopher Reeve is the real Superman!

    Christopher Reeve is the real Superman! This movie from 1978 is the very first movie about the man of steel. If you remember this movie then you remember the late 1970s! Marlon Brando is Jor-el, Margot Kidder is Lois Lane, Gene Hackman is Lex Luthor, this is a great movie that is superb and supasses the test of time!

    The Best Comicbook Adaption

    Without a doubt Richard Donner's Superman is the best movie made out of a comicbook in film history. It is able to give the origin of Superman without boring those familiar to the story and bring in humor to show that the character is a bit chessy. Christopher Reeve is the epitome of the hero, and does a brilliant job conveying the emotions behind the man of steel. A must for comicbook fans and those who hate them alike

    Comic Book Adventure Comes to Life

    Great example of bringing the comic book adventure to life, setting the stage for sequels, Batman movies and many other copies. If you like the film, check out the book Curse of the Silver Screen - Tragedy & Disaster Behind the Movies for a behind the scenes look at the making of this troubled series and the tragedies that hit the stars of the film. Available in the book section
