AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT ALL-STAR SUPERMAN

AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT ALL-STAR SUPERMAN

By David Hyde Tuesday, January 4th, 2011
It is based on a book that is an Eisner Award winner and a New York Times bestseller. It’s a personal story with an epic scope. It’s iconic and classic, yet modern and daring. Yes, we’re talking about ALL-STAR SUPERMAN. It’s no hyperbole to say that Warner Home Video’s upcoming animated ALL-STAR SUPERMAN film is eagerly anticipated and the good folks at WHV have been kind enough to send THE SOURCE an exclusive still. . .

We’re getting closer and closer to the release date, February 22. I’ve had the good fortune to see a number of clips from the film. It looks stunning. And how about that voice cast? James Denton is Superman. Christina Hendricks is Lois Lane. Anthony LaPaglia voices Lex Luthor. Emmy Award winner Ed Asner is Perry White There’s also an amazing documentary with Grant Morrison and Dan DiDio talking about the making of the ALL-STAR SUPERMAN comic books. Grant’s enthusiasm for Superman, for the comic books and for the animated film are undeniable. But who am I to speak for Grant?
"It took only a single viewing for ALL-STAR SUPERMAN to become one of my all-time favourite superhero movies. The adaptation by Bruce, Dwayne and the team is quirky, epic and heartbreaking and I don't think I've seen anything else quite like it. A triumph, as they say!"
Hey, Mad Men fans, did I mention Christina Hendricks is Lois Lane? Some things deserve repeating… Am I right? I’ll be watching this one on February 22nd, along with everyone else.
