About this movie

A box-office smash,an Academy Award winner* and a fan favorite since it first flew into theatres in December 1978,Superman: The Movie assembles a cast and creative contingent as only a big movie can. At its heart (just as in three sequels) is Christopher Reeve's intelligent,affectionate portrayal of a most human Man of Steel. Watching Superman again isn't just like being a kid again. It's better.

The movie's legacy soared even higher when director Richard Donner revisited this beloved adventure 22 years later and integrated eight minutes into the film. Enjoy more footage of the Krypton Council,a glimpse of stars of prior Superman incarnations,more of Jor-El underscoring his son's purpose on Earth andan extended sequence inside Lex Luthor's gauntlet of doom. Reeve,Marlon Brando (Jor-El),Gene Hackman (Luthor) and Margot Kidder (Lois Lane) give indelible performances that fuel the film's aura of legend. Looks like a swell night for flying. Why not come along?
