To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the landmark film and the 80th anniversary of the beloved DC character created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster, Fathom Events will present Superman in its original theatrical version, as audiences saw it upon its initial release in December 1978. A box-office sensation, Superman broke industry records and went on to gross more than $300 million worldwide, leading to three direct sequels - and helping introduce the world to the enormous possibility of comic-book film adaptations.
Christopher Reeve stars as Superman and Clark Kent, leading an incomparable cast that includes Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, Gene Hackman as villainous Lex Luthor, Marlon Brando and Susannah York as Superman’s parents Jor-El and Lara; Ned Beatty and Valerie Perrine as Luthor’s sidekicks Otis and Miss Tessmacher; Jackie Cooper as Perry White; Glenn Ford and Phyllis Thaxter as George and Martha Kent; and Jeff East as teenaged Clark Kent. Superman was written by Mario Puzo, David Newman, Leslie Newman and Robert Benton from a story by Mario Puzo.
Accompanying Superman will be a cinematic rarity: Max Fleischer’s animated Superman short “Mechanical Monsters,” presented in movie theaters for the first time since its original release in 1941. The 10-minute, Technicolor cartoon is one of 17 animated shorts produced in the 1940s that were based on DC’s legendary hero.
