Classic comic book adaptation “Superman” is coming to 4K disc in November
The first Superman movie really set the bar by which all other comic book adaptations have been measured, and now it’s getting a 4K release, based on a brand new 4K scan from the Theatrical Cut’s original negative.
This new remaster will be on both 4K (complete with Dolby Atmos) and Blu-ray – full details are below.
There is a Blu-ray set also coming that will included the Special Edition and Extended Cut.
No word yet on a steelbook for either release.
A box-office smash, an Academy Award-winner and a fan favourite since it first flew into theaters, Superman: The Movie assembles a cast and creative contingent as only a big movie can. As its heart (and for three sequels) is Christopher Reeve’s intelligent, affectionate portrayal of a most human Man of Steel. Reeve, Marlon Brando (Jor-El), Gene Hackman (Lex Luthor) and Margot Kidder (Lois Lane) give performances that fuel the film’s aura of legend. Watching Superman isn’t just like being a kid again. It’s better. Includes theatrical version on both 4K and remastered Blu-Ray Disc.
