Photos from Max Landis' THE DEATH AND RETURN OF SUPERMAN
The death of Superman created quite a stir when it happened back in 1992. Max Landis (Chronicle) was impacted enough that he decided to make a short film called The Death and Return of Superman. The film is a comedic viral short that stars Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Elden Henson, Morgan Krantz, Zach Cregger, Ron Howard, Simon Pegg, Matt Bennett, Sarah Shahi, and Barats and Beretta.
Here's an official synopsis:
The Death and Return of Superman forever changed comics. Superman's tragic death was not just mourned by comic book readers, it echoed throughout the entire country. What is never mentioned, however, is just how poorly conceived The Death and Return of Superman saga was and how it shattered the integrity of the comic book industry. A follow up to his previous comic web videos Cooking with Comics: Knightfall and Vague Recollections of: Watchmen, writer/director Max Landis shows us through reenactment just how ridiculous The Death of Superman saga became and how it affected the world of comics.
For those of you in Los Angeles, The Death and Return of Superman is making its premiere at 12pm on November 27. Cinefamily at the Silent Movie Theater (611 North Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90036) is hosting the event. A Q&A will follow.
