Superman: The Movie (1978)
Directed by Richard Donner
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s the big-budget update of the Man of Steel that turned a comic book hero into a blockbuster phenomenon 40 years ago. Starring a then-unknown Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent/Superman, director Richard Donner’s adaptation is an old-fashioned adventure featuring great special effects, an otherworldly hero, and a stellar cast, including Margot Kidder, Gene Hackman and Marlon Brando.
