Double bill of Superman adventures old and new. In Richard Donner's classic 1978 film starring Christopher Reeve as the eponymous hero, a baby from the planet Krypton develops superhuman powers under Earth's yellow sun. As an adult (Reeve) he dons red cape and pants and flies across the world doing good deeds while hiding behind the alias of mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent. Fellow journalist Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) falls for the muscleman in tights without realising that he and her bumbling colleague are one and the same. Gene Hackman co-stars as evil mastermind criminal Lex Luthor. 'Superman Returns' (2006) is set after the events of the 1980 film 'Superman II'. After eliminating General Zod and the other Kryptonian arch-villains, Ursa and Non, Superman (Brandon Routh) leaves Earth to search for his former home planet, Krypton. When he arrives he finds nothing but remnants and returns to Earth. Upon his return, he finds a Metropolis that doesn't need him anymore. Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth) is engaged to a relative of his boss (James Marsden), and to make matters worse, his arch-nemesis Lex Luthor (Kevin Spacey) has contrived a plot to build a continent using the crystals of Krypton that will wipe out most of North America. Superman must again race against time to stop the psychopathic Luthor before it's too late.
