Richard Donner’s 1978 Classic Back On The Silver Screen

Anniversaries seem to be racing past us these days, but it still seems like a shock that the 1978’s Superman reaches the big 40 this year. So it’s getting the obligatory big-screen treatment again.

THE Man of Steel

Superman – sometimes called Superman: The Movie – starred Christopher Reeve and originally released Dec. 15, 1978, has plans to be re-released this November.

The movie had a ridiculously talented cast. Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder, Glenn Ford, Jackie Cooper, Marc McClure, Terence Stamp, Valerie Perrine, Ned Beatty – the list goes on.

It was a critical and commercial smash, eventually ending the year second at the box office behind only Grease.


An announcement, for these anniversary screening’s of Superman, is expected to come from Fathom Events, which normally stages these types of events.
