SUPERMAN II - DIRECTOR'S CUT

Great Caesar's Ghost!!!

Richard Donnor's Director's Cut of SUPERMAN II is nearly upon us!!! November 28 is going to be one helluva geeky day!!!
"Huh?" you say? Well...
Donner had already shot most of the Superman II footage during Superman: The Movie. But as production on the sequel continued, creative differences between the director and the film’s producers became irreconcilable and Donner left the project. Although Richard Lester was hired to finish production, he chose to make major changes to the film, leaving only vestiges of Donner’s original vision and concepts in the version of Superman II that was ultimately released to theaters. Adding back a substantial amount of that unused footage, the director has seen his original vision restored and brought to fruition. Most notably, the “Donner cut” restores the Marlon Brando role, filmed for, but not included in the final theatrical release version of Superman II. The legendary Brando’s performance as Jor-El has finally been restored in key scenes that amplify Superman lore and deepen the profound relationship between father and son. There are also many other changes, large and small.
I can't wait!! OH CRAP!!! I just realized I'm going to be out of the Country then! CRAP! Guess I have to cancel my vacation.....
