In 2012, Screenwriter Max Landis (Chronicle, and upcoming American Ultra, Victor Frankenstein) released a short film called The Death and Return of Superman which starred Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Ron Howard, Chris Hardwick, Simon Pegg and more. The short, described as “an educational parody,” told the hilarious, literal, insider version what happened in 1992 when DC Comics decided to kill, then resurrect, Superman.

It’s a big weekend for Max Landis. Sure, the son of legendary director John Landis has a few screenplays in various stages of production but this weekend marks his first to finally make it to the big screen, Chronicle (read a review here). He’s also picked this weekend to release his much ballyhooed short film The Death and Return of Superman.

The Death and Return of Superman, described as “an educational parody,” tells the hilarious, literal, insider version what happened in 1992 when DC Comics decided to kill, then resurrect, Superman. It’s a story many of us remember, but have long since forgotten.

Starring Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Ron Howard, Chris Hardwick, Simon Pegg and more, you can check it out after the break. Read More »
