February 17, – Premiering at The Paley Center in Los Angeles, the stars came out to watch the latest in the DC Entertainment and Warner Premiere movie series, “All-Star Superman” animated movie. The animated film is an adaptation of a comic book series written by Grant Morrison about Superman’s final days on Earth.
“It’s 100%, pure Superman. It feels very old school and at the same time, it feels very fresh and modern. Not only is it a really faithful adaptation of the comic material but it’s a good movie period. I think just from beginning to end it does everything you want a superhero movie to do. It’s exciting and really heartfelt. So when you get to the end of it, you feel like you have experienced something.” said legendary Producer Bruce Timm.
Voicing Superman in the film is Actor James Denton, who many know from ABC’s Desperate Housewives. When asked about doing the voice over for the iconic role he said “It’s pretty intimidating and really an honor. That’s not an overstatement. I mean I was really nervous about doing it. I wanted to do service to the character and the franchise and I know the fans are very protective of the character.”
Also attending was the very iconic Casting Director Andrea Romano. When asked about why they choose Denton to voice Superman she said “We needed a different emotional level than we have seen in the previous Superman carnations and I am a huge fan of his work. He also has the sound of a strong man but also the sensitivity to cover the entire emotional arc which is different than any other of the animated films.”
As the theater was filled with press and fans alike the movie went over well with everyone. All in all, it was a “super” night with a great movie that any fan will love and should have in their DVD movie collection. “All-Star Superman” comes to DVD/Blu-Ray February 22, 2011.
