Warner Bros has recently sent over a press release for Superman
Returns that serves as a 'save the date' for June 28th. Just in case you have been living under a rock, Warner Bros has pushed the release of Superman Returns forward from June 30th to the 28th in order to avoid Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest... *cough*... I mean the 4th of July.
Superman Returns on June 28th
WARNER BROS. PICTURESí EPIC ACTION ADVENTURE SUPERMAN RETURNS TO SOAR INTO THEATRES ON JUNE 28
As anticipation continues to build toward the summer release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ Superman Returns, the Studio announced today that it has moved up the release date to Wednesday, June 28, 2006. The new motion picture, directed by Bryan Singer and starring Brandon Routh, Kate Bosworth and Kevin Spacey, was previously set to open on Friday, June 30. The announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
“Superman is an iconic figure known the world over, and Bryan has made an outstanding film that pays tribute to this character’s integrity and broad appeal,” said Fellman. “The film will have a wide, simultaneous North American release in conventional and IMAX® theaters.”
A special groundbreaking version of the film – Superman Returns: An IMAX 3D Experience – will also play in IMAX theaters worldwide beginning in June. Superman Returns: An IMAX 3D Experience will be the world’s first live action feature to include select segments converted from 2D into IMAX®3D. Using IMAX’s revolutionary live action 2D to 3D conversion technology, approximately 20 minutes of the motion picture will be converted into 3D. The entire film will be digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience through the proprietary IMAX DMR (digital re-mastering) technology.
Superman Returns was originally shot in 2D, meaning it only existed as a single view-point. To convert the film into IMAX 3D, a second view-point, or “second eye” had to be created. The IMAX 3D Experience is recognized around the world as the highest-quality, most immersive cinematic experience ever created. With crystal clear, larger than life 3D images, complemented by up to 14,000 watts of digital surround sound, audiences feel as though they are actually IN the movie, flying alongside the man of steel.
Following a mysterious absence of several years, the Man of Steel comes back to Earth in the epic action-adventure Superman Returns, a soaring new chapter in the saga of one of the world’s most beloved superheroes. While an old enemy plots to render him powerless once and for all, Superman (Brandon Routh) faces the heartbreaking realization that the woman he loves, Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth), has moved on with her life. Or has she? Superman’s bittersweet return challenges him to bridge the distance between them while finding a place in a society that has learned to survive without him. In an attempt to protect the world he loves from cataclysmic destruction, Superman embarks on an epic journey of redemption that takes him from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space.
Superman Returns will fly into theatres on June 28th.
