An interesting interview with Bryan Singer on Superman Returns, although it deals more with the technology behind the movie.

Ehhh, I use spoiler tags just in case. My favorite part of the interview, regarding the Marlon Brando scenes:


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read

You re-created Marlon Brando, for instance, bringing him back for the Fortress of Solitude scenes. In that scene where hes talking, hes completely
created. We just had grainy photographic references. So he had to be created from those. Its like bringing back the dead, in a way. Hes actually saying words that he never said on camera. He said them into a microphone back when they made the first movie. And Im moving around him in multiple dimensions. So he had to be animated.


Just scary the things they can do now....

I clicked the link but a blank window opened up.

Is this the cover story from Wired! Magazine? I just got my copy in the mail but I wasn't planning on reading that article until after I see Superman next month. I'm trying to preserve as clean a viewing condition as humanly possible and avoiding spoilers and reviews etc. the way Superman avoids Kryptonite.

On the subject of Superman Returns, I find it amusing that when a thread about this movie opens up, there are no replies. Is ANYONE excited to see it?
whatever

Yes, if only to see my lovely wife's reaction to Spacey-as-Luthor. She has a HUGE crush on him.

Yes, it's the interview in Wired. It doesn't help when I forget to include the link in the tags. Fixed above as well.

Personally, I'm more interested in seeing the film now than I was before, but to say much more...

This isn't really a spoiler since it's been all over the internet for about eight months now.

There were unused video and sound clips from Richard Donner's original version of SUPERMAN II and they simply digitally inserted Brando into the scenes and dubbed the voice.

It's really quite simple. But with the movie's cost skyrocketting to over $250 million and more, he's just making it sound more special then it really is.

The $250million price tag is a myth, in that it takes into account all the money previously wasted on SUPERMAN projects that never got off the ground, plus other rumours & half-truths. Singer's version is an expensive movie, but it's not the most expensive.

Seems to me they are just trying to redo the original movies. Why not do something new?

At this point, that question can be posed to all of Hollywood.
