October 11, 1999: SUPERMAN DVD UpdateFor those of you who don't already know, "Superman" is being restored for at least a DVD release for the Fall of 2000. Here is the very latest on the restoration efforts:
Jim Bowers has been in touch with Donner's people, and the DVD will indeed be presented in two versions on DVD, programmable a la Criterion's "Close Encounters" laserdisc so the viewer can, by choice, see either the extended/special edition or the original theatrical version. It will be presented at this point in 5.1 Dolby Digital, with restored scenes and digitally remastered picture and sound.
That is all we're authorized to tell you for now, but if there's any new developments we can tell all of you, we will of course let you know.
