Ultimate 14-Disc Collection with 7 Superman Films & Over 20 Hours of Extras!
It's a bird...it's a plane...it's the Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition! This 14 disc collection includes SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE, SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE - 2000 EXPANDED EDITION, SUPERMAN II, SUPERMAN II: THE RICHARD DONNER CUT, SUPERMAN III, SUPERMAN IV: THE QUEST FOR PEACE, and SUPERMAN RETURNS: SPECIAL EDITION!

SUPERMAN: 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.

SUPERMAN - 2000 EXPANDED EDITION: 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 and an 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?

SUPERMAN II: "I thought the original SUPERMAN was terrific entertainment," the Chicago Sun-Times' Roger Ebert wrote, "and so I was a little startled to discover that I liked SUPERMAN II even more." Unwittingly released from Phantom Zone imprisonment, three super-powered Kryptonian criminals (Terence Stamp, Sarah Douglas and Jack O'Halloran) plan to enslave Earth - just when Superman (Christopher Reeve) decides to show a more romantic side to Lois Lane (Margot Kidder). Gene Hackman (as Lex Luthor) also returns from the first film and with a top supporting cast, witty Richard Lester direction and visuals that astound and delight, SUPERMAN II saves the day any day you watch it!

SUPERMAN II - THE RICHARD DONNER CUT: In the year of Superman Returns, SUPERMAN II starring Christopher Reeve also returns - with a totally different beginning and resolution. With Jor-El (Marlon Brando in recently discovered footage) in key scenes that amplify Superman lore and deepen the profound relationship between father and son. With different Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) schemes to unmask Clark Kent as Superman. With...well, with so many changes, large and small, that this Superman II is an eye-opening alternate experience. Director Richard Donner began shooting his vision of SUPERMAN II while concurrently filming SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE. Now, for the first time, his never-before-seen vision is here. And it's a must for every Superman fan, an important addition to the legend of the Man of Steel.

SUPERMAN III: After SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE's epic storytelling and SUPERMAN II's awesome battles, how could the first two hits be topped? In SUPERMAN III, meet Gus Gorman (Richard Pryor), a half-witted computer programming natural. For him a keyboard is a weapon - and Superman faces the microelectronic menace of his life. Christopher Reeve reprises his most beloved role, deepening his character's human side as Clark Kent reunites with old flame Lana Lang (Annette O'Toole) at a Smallville High class reunion. And when Superman becomes his own worst enemy after Kryptonite exposure, Reeve pulls off both roles with dazzling skill. Incredible visual effects abound - but above all it has heart, heroism and high-flying humor. All in superabundance.

SUPERMAN IV: Christopher Reeve not only dons the title hero's cape for the fourth time but also helped develop the movie's provocative theme: nuclear disarmament. "For me, it's the most personal of the entire series," Reeve said. "It directly reflects what Superman should be, and should be doing." Superman does a lot this time around. To make the world safe for nuclear arms merchants, Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) creates a new being to challenge the Man of Steel: the radiation-charged Nuclear Man (Mark Pillow). The two foes clash in an explosive extravaganza that sees Superman save the Statue of Liberty, plug a volcanic eruption of Mount Etna and rebuild the demolished Great Wall of China. Your quest for excitement is over!

SUPERMAN RETURNS: He's back. A hero for our millennium. And not a moment too soon, because during the five years (much longer in movie-fan years!) Superman sought his home planet, things changed on his adopted planet. Nations moved on without him. Lois Lane now has a son, a fiance and a Pulitzer for "Why the World Doesn't Need Superman." And Lex Luthor has a plan that will destroy millions - no, billions - of lives. Filmmaker Bryan Singer (X-Men) gives the world the Superman it needs, honoring the legend everyone loves while taking it in a powerful new direction. Brandon Routh proves a perfect choice to wear the hero's cape, leading a top cast that includes Kate Bosworth as Lois and Kevin Spacey as Lex. And the thrills - from a sky-grapple with a tumbling jumbo jet to a continent-convulsing showdown - redefine Wow. "I'm always around," Superman tells Lois. You'll be glad he is.

Professional Reviews

Washington Post 6 of 10
[4] Christopher Reeve, in his fourth consecutive role, wrote the story for this film -- an unabashed nuclear disarmament message. But by the end of this movie (produced by the Golan-Globus conspiracy), nuclear winter seems more appealing than the prospect of "Superman V"...The movie's climactic scenes apparently occur when the superbeings battle above Manhattan, the Great Wall of China and the moon. After this fight, you'll look fondly on Saturday morning wrestling. And after this film, you'll look fondly at just about anything. - Desson Howe

ReelViews 9 of 10
[2] Rectifying one of Superman's flaws, Superman II offers not just one, but three, effective villains. Each of the criminals from Krypton is as strong as the Man of Steel, and their amorality makes them far more dangerous...Superman acquaints us with the characters and sets up the scenario; Superman II takes the plot threads introduced in the original and resolves them. In my review of Superman, I noted that it is possible to watch and enjoy that film without having seen the sequel. A similar comment can be made regarding Superman II - having viewed its predecessor is not a necessary prerequisite to appreciating the second installment. - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 10 of 10
[1] "Superman" is a pure delight, a wondrous combination of all the old-fashioned things we never really get tired of: adventure and romance, heroes and villains, earthshaking special effects, and -- you know what else? Wit. That surprised me more than anything: That this big-budget epic, which was half a decade making its way to the screen, would turn out to have an intelligent sense of humor about itself...And then the special effects. They're as good in their way as any you've seen, and they come thick and fast...The movie is, in fact, a triumph of imagination over both the difficulties of technology and the inhibitions of money. "Superman" wasn't easy to bring to the screen, but the filmmakers kept at it until they had it right. - Roger Ebert

Variety 10 of 10
[Returns] "Why the World Doesn't Need Superman" reads the title of a piece that wins Lois Lane the Pulitzer Prize in "Superman Returns," the latest bigscreen revival of comicdom's strongest and fastest hero. Not only is she wrong in the context of the story (not to mention real life), but she'll be wrong in the court of public opinion once the world gets a look at this most grandly conceived and sensitively drawn "Superman" saga. Sure to rate with aficionados alongside "Spider-Man 2" and, for many, "Batman Begins" on the short list of best superhero spectaculars...Topping off these aspects is the evocative, darkly lyrical score by John Ottman... - Todd McCarthy
