(April 2, 2007 - Burbank, CA) — When Warner Home Video’s (WHV) "The Superman Ultimate Collector’s Edition" ("Superman UCE") was released last November, consumer receptivity was completely unprecedented, resulting in WHV selling its total supply of collections in one month. The "Superman UCE" was lauded by the nation’s critics and made many top ten lists, year-end round-ups and magazine gift guide suggestions. The title also won top honors as Catalog DVD of the Year at the Digital Entertainment Group’s Creative Excellence Awards. Now on May 29, "The Superman Ultimate Collector’s Edition" will again be available by popular demand, in a limited edition, at $99.92 SRP. Orders for the re-release are due April 24. The re-released "Superman UCE" will include the corrected discs for "Superman III" and "Superman: The Movie," which were missing bonus content upon their release last fall. When the inadvertent omission was discovered, replacement discs were made available to initial UCE buyers. Replacement discs from the first release of the UCE can still be obtained, at no cost to the consumer, by calling 800-553-6937. “We’re ecstatic with these sales figures, and we’re looking forward to meeting the consumer demand for more 'Superman UCEs,'” said Jeff Baker, WHV’s SVP and General Manager Theatrical Catalog. “The success of 'The Superman Ultimate Collectors Edition' is a clear indication of the strong interest in this kind of packaging and reinforces our future plans to release more of these extensive anthologies.” "The Superman Ultimate Collector’s Edition" includes all six films in the Superman theatrical franchise -- "Superman Returns Special Edition," "Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut," "Superman: The Movie Four Disc Special Edition," "Superman II Two Disc Special Edition," "Superman III & IV Deluxe Editions" -- and is loaded with more than 20 hours of bonus features. Three bonus discs include "Look Up in the Sky!" "The Amazing Story of Superman" and exclusive to the collection, "You Will Believe: The Cinematic Saga of Superman," a feature length documentary, plus Bryan Singer’s video journals chronicling the making of "Superman Returns." The 14-disc set will be packaged in a collectible keepsake tin and holds the set within lenticular packaging, along with a reproduction of the comic book "Superman" issue #7 and a "Superman" overview booklet. Consumers can also send in a mail-in offer for five limited edition Superman theatrical movie posters through March 2008.
