Short Film: The Death And Return Of Superman [2011]


Background:
Year Of Release: 2011
Directed By: Max Landis
Written By: Max Landis
Starring: Elden Henson, Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Morgan Krantz
Running Time: 17 minutes
In A Nutshell:
A somewhat-mostly-accurate educational parody film narrated (more likely to be a rant) by Max Landis about the real life events of when DC Comics in 1992 decided to kill  off the Superman character only to bring him back to life again shortly after.
Quick Comments:
I do remember the massive press back in 1992 about "Superman's Death". Vividly too. A few newspapers over here where I live even put a photo on THE FRONT PAGE. Believe me, for a Malaysian newspaper to print something even remotely associated with a comic book is one inter-galactically huge achievement. But yes, that entire "death" story line was a huge fiasco and I'm sorry DC fans, but that is why DC will always be some distance behind Marvel. Max Landis of course is the writer of the recently released and rather impressive movie Chronicle [2012] (there's even a quick and subtle plug for that movie in the short). This just has to seen by all comic-book/superhero geeks out there. It will only take SEVENTEEN MINUTES OF YOUR LIFE! Now you can definitely afford that.
