Paris Premiere

July 12, 2006: “Superman Returns” Paris/UK Premieres/Interviews/Videos

The cast of "Superman Returns" hit Paris for the premiere of the new movie on July 10.

Hundreds of fans greeted director Bryan Singer, Kevin Spacey, Kate Bosworth and leading man Brandon Routh in front of the towering arch of the French capital's La Defense district.

At the premiere, the new Man of Steel admitted that he's taking the fame in his stride.

Routh said: "I did a lot of thinking about it, making sure I was prepared as I could be, and I feel like I'm handling it well."

The London premiere takes place tomorrow (July 13) in Leicester Square.

The Evening Standard newspaper is developing a promotional tie-up with "Superman Returns" for the film's Leicester Square premiere.

Paris Premiere The Standard Lite edition of the newspaper will be wrapped with a mock Daily Planet front cover on Thursday (13 July).

The wrap will extend across the full print run of the newspaper and feature "Superman Returns" artwork with a mocked up Daily Planet masthead with a strip above carrying the Standard Lite logo. The wrap will also feature Daily Planet news stories across the outside four pages.

An extra 1,500 copies of the Standard Lite will be distributed in the red carpet area of Leicester Square and one reader waving a copy in the vicinity will be plucked from the crowd and allowed into the premiere as part of the promotion.

Speaking of UK newspapers, the Independent newspaper's online edition has released an interview with Brandon Routh.

Paris Premiere You can watch some shaky fan-made videos of the red carpet arrivals from the Paris premiere via YouTube: Brandon Routh signing autographs, Kevin Spacey's arrival, Bryan Singer, and Kate Bosworth.

On YouTube you can also watch a KTLA interview with Tristan Lake Leabu, who plays Jason White in "Superman Returns".

There's also a clip from "The Science of Superman" documentary, showing Brandon Routh swimming in preparation for his flying scenes in "Superman Returns".
