Double Feature: SUPERMAN, 1978, Warner Bros. Classics, 151 min. The film that set the standard for all big-screen comic-book adaptations before or since, director Richard Donner’s spectacular SUPERMAN has been digitally restored, with eight minutes of never-before-seen footage added (including a pivotal scene with Marlon Brando as Superman’s father, Jor-El). Virtual unknown Christopher Reeve was brilliantly cast as the heroic Man of Steel and his bumbling counterpart Clark Kent, with terrific support from Margot Kidder as Lois Lane and Gene Hackman as Superman’s arch-nemesis, Lex Luthor. [35mm]
SUPERMAN 2, 1980, Warner Bros., 116 min. Three super-villains from Krypton (including Terence Stamp) arrive on Earth to bedevil Christopher Reeve’s Man of Steel. [Blu ray]
