One of the best cross-promotional items I've seen based on the new Superman Returns film is "The Art of superman Returns" from Chronicle Books. This 160 page, hardcover book with dust jacket is simply breathtaking as it takes readers behind the cameras of the recent blockbuster film with hundreds of pieces of concept art, storyboards, models and miniatures, paintings, sketches, costumes and photography. It serves to show in vivid depth the amount of detail and planning that goes into making a big budget film like Superman Returns.

The Foreward by director Bryan Singer brings this home right off the bat as Singer is shown standing in the midst of a miniature version of Metropolis, surrounded by buildings taller than he as train tracks and weave all around him. It's a fascinating photo. Full color paintings show Superman's rescue of the stricken jet. Storyboards bring the rooftop standoff sequence to near life as the machine gun pours bullets at the Man of Steel to no avail.

Moving to Smallville, we see the Kent farm recreated in perfect miniature and you can't help but marvel at the skill of the model and miniature artists as no detail is too small for them to include in their work. Once painted, you'd be hard pressed to guess that you were looking at a model, and not a real farmhouse and barn.

One of my favorite parts of the book was a look at Krypton. The Krypton of this film, while similar to the earlier Superman films, is a bit darker and edgier. Superman's Fortress of Solitude gleams compared to earlier films where it was sort of a dull white.

Throughout the book, author Daniel Wallace provides even more detail about the creative process behind the various creations of settings, scenes, and costumes. Metropolis, with all its art-deco accents is truly a sight to behold. Wallace is aided by comments from the film's screenwriters, production and costume designers, not to mention Bryan Singer himself. This is one of those books designed for the avid fan or collector, or even those who might be interested in getting into film work themselves.

A fascinating souvenir book from the superhero motion picture of the year 24 juillet 2006
Par Gustavo H B Alves - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is much more than just a compilation of photos and sketches from Bryan Singer's SUPERMAN RETURNS, which in my opinion is the superhero motion picture of the year. The book is divided into five (05) different chapters (Superman; Smallville; Metropolis; Krypton; and Lex Luthor), all beautifully illustrated and explained by author Daniel Wallace. I bought it together with the movie score by John Ottmann, which turned out to be an interesting combination to be enjoyed at the same time. All of the magic from this movie in portrayed in the book, there's nothing missing at all. This is certainly a must-have for any superman fan such as myself. Five stars !

Magnificently COOL Book!!! 3 août 2006
Par Scott N. Kassner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a magnificent book. If you were swept away by the artistry of the movie "Superman Returns" like I was, this book is a MUST. Big photographs from the film, sketches, paintings, and storyboards galore abound in this excellent coffeetable edition.

Among my favorites are:
*A full page painting of Superman lying unconscious in a crater in Metropolis Park after falling from space
**An almost 2-page painting of Superman lifting New Krypton out of the ocean, complete with tidal waves and green Kryptonite-laced lightening
***Photos and details about the new Superman uniform - like that it is actually fit for a 9-year old boy, then stretches onto a 6-foot-three Brandon Routh so that there will be absolutely no wrinkles
****Great explanation about Superman's story-opening trip to Krypton and his starship, complete with awesome paintings and photos from deleted scenes
*****Insight about the art deco design of Metropolis - why we just can't take our eyes off of that COOL Daily Planet Building

Superman fans will be happily consumed by the book's artwork and text that will broaden their knowledge and scope of the film. It is a nice size, probably worth more than you'll pay for it, and will definitely become a collector's item! To be re-read often!
Nice compliment to the film! 17 janvier 2013

This is a nice, if WAY too short book on the making of Superman Returns. I DO wish it had more photos from the sets and of the costumes from the film. One of the neatest things they show in the book are photos of the filmed, but unused scenes of Superman in his crystalline spaceship when he is returning from his journey to find Krypton! This is the ONLY source where I have ever even seen these amazing scenes even mentioned. I own the 2-Disc DVD Collectors Edition of Superman Returns and those scenes are not even mentioned in the 2 hour long making-of documentary OR included in the "Deleted Scenes" collection on Disc 2! They look amazing and I really wish they had used them in the film. The only part of those scenes we get to see is when the ship comes flying over Martha Kent's farm and crashes in the field where we see Kal-El in his silver suit just before he collapses in his mothers' arms. Anyway, nice book for an ENTIRELY underrated film! If you love the film, you will like this book!

If you enjoyed Superman Returns, then I'm confident you'll like this book which features a lot of great imagery from the film.

My only issue is that for being an "art" book, there's doesn't seem to be much artwork. In my opinion, the book relies too heavily on stills taken directly from the movie (which we've all seen). Still, the book has some interesting insight into the design process on the film; and the art that is included is great (a detailed list is below).

Includes the following:
- Concept Art of Smallville & Metropolis
- Storyboard Sequences
- Krypton Landscape Models/Miniatures
- Superman costume re-design
- Costume Sketches for Lex Luthor, Lois Lane, etc.
- Daily Planet building design & newspaper front pages
- Stills from the movie.
