Moviegoers will be able to experience the return of Superman in eye-popping IMAX 3D at Blockbuster IMAX Theater located at the Museum of Discovery and Science on Wednesday, June 28, 2006. Using proprietary 2D to 3D conversion technology, select scenes have been converted into An IMAX 3D Experience®, the most immersive cinematic 3D in the world. "Superman Returns: An IMAX 3D Experience" will debut concurrently with the nationwide 35mm release from Warner Bros. Pictures on June 28th. This film is locally sponsored by Maroone, an AutoNation Company.

Approximately 20 minutes of the film have been transformed into IMAX 3D. The four separate sequences were filmmaker selected, and will transport moviegoers into the film so they experience the action, drama and wonder of the world of Superman as never before. IMAX 3D moments include Superman saving citizens from imminent disaster and a majestic flying sequence where audiences will feel as though they are soaring right beside the super hero himself.

Special on-screen cues will alert moviegoers when to put the 3D glasses on and take them off. A green icon of flashing glasses will enter the frame across of the bottom of the screen to indicate that the glasses should be put on, and a red icon of flashing glasses with a slash through them will indicate that the glasses should be removed.

"Superman Returns" has been transformed into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® through IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-Mastering) technology, providing moviegoers with an extraordinary cinematic experience.

“The test scenes that have been converted into IMAX 3D look, sound and feel absolutely amazing,” added Bryan Singer, Director of "Superman Returns." “The magic of IMAX 3D will envelop audiences in this story, enabling them to feel the emotion, drama and suspense in a completely new and unique way.”

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 faces the heartbreaking realization that the woman he loves, Lois Lane, 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.

Sounds like pure Super Summer movie fun to me!

1950's Superman TV Series

One of my local TV stations recently began airing reruns of the old half hour Superman TV series from the 1950's starring George Reeves. I have not seen any of these oldies for quite a few years. They're low budget and simple but still very charming and entertaining in glorious black and white.

George Reeves was reluctant to make public appearances in the Superman costume for fear of getting shot by some oddball who might think he was really bulletproof. It's ironic that Reeves eventually died of a gunshot wound. Some say it was suicide while others believe it was murder.

Re: 1950's Superman TV Series

I know the actors who played Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen believed that there was some foul play involved with Steve Reeves' death.

How ironic that both Supermen, Reeve and Reeves, died young and tragic.
