Superman The Movie: Extended Cut & Special Edition 2-Film Collection (BD)

Superman: The Movie received an ahead-of-its-time makeover for its television premiere - nearly 40 more minutes of story, creating a two-night television event. Unseen in decades, this version is paired here with Richard Donner's definitive vision of his film.

As a long-time fan of the Christopher Reeve Superman films (the first two anyway, lol!), I remember watching this extended cut as a two-night event wayyyyy back in the day. With all of the revisions and different editions that have been released on various formats, I prayed that someday we'd get this cut, even if as a special "niche" release such as this MOD disc. I'm thrilled that WB took the time to dust off the print and clean it up, with apparent love and reverence that they knew the fans would want and expect. THANK YOU! More extended cuts and special editions please!

Superman first debuted on network TV spread over two nights, and it was that extended three-hour cut that is included. It doesn't add an iota to the film and in fact degrades it, slowing the pace by extending scenes. The "special edition" version which is also included was previously released on Blu-ray, and it restored about ten minutes of interesting material to the theatrical release, such as Superman blasting his way through traps to get to Luthor's underground lair. If you don't have the aforementioned Blu-ray than this is the disc set to buy. Otherwise the three hour cut will only be of interest to Superman completists.

Great to have this in great quality

By tzpower

I'm so happy to have this on blu-ray and it looks great. The extended edition doesn't add a ton to the film, but it is great to see and the special edition is great. I hope we can soon get the extended versions of the rest of the Superman/Supergirl films!

              I had never seen this version of Superman, but of course, had heard of it and it was a great thrill to see and experience this version of Superman: The Movie.

              A must buy for all Superman lovers.

                  It's great having this version of the movie. This pretty much was the way I first remember seeing Superman on TV. Really hope that they release the other extended cuts.

                  SUPERMAN - THE ULTIMATE VERSION

                  Back in early 1982, when this version of SUPERMAN- THE MOVIE played over 2 nights, I recorded the sound on a cassette tape recorder. But we all know listening is not enough for Richard Donner's visionary movie. Plenty of fans have waited 35 years for this version to arrive on home video and this 3 hour and 8 minute BluRay is not to be missed.

                              The new Blu-ray looks and sounds fantastic! My only concern is the music replacement at the start of the film. The edited version of the main title theme is unusually choppy and haphazard. The original version of the main title theme should have been left alone.

                                  It was awesome to be able to watch this 3hr tv version in 1080p. I haven't seen this version since I was a child. Thanks WB.
