The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day today over at Amazon is Superman Ultimate Collector’s Edition for only $45.99 (down 54% from the list price of $99.98).
This 14-disc DVD set has all four Christopher Reeve movies — Superman – The Movie, Superman II, Superman III, Superman IV – The Quest for Peace — along with Superman II – The Richard Donner Cut, an expanded version Superman – The Movie, and Bryan Singer’s more recent continuation of the franchise Superman Returns. There’s also bonus materials, plus three extra discs of documentaries and other bonus materials.
Also included in this megaset are all of the 1940s Fleisher cartoons, a mini-reprint of Superman #7 (from 1987), with script and art by John Byrne, and much more.
This is a great deal just to get the multiple versions of the first two films and if you haven’t seen III and IV, now’s the time — I think they’ve passed into the ‘so bad it’s actually good’ category by now. And if anything, you can play ’em for the youngsters and explain to them who Richard Pryor is.
Note, this sale is for today only while supplies last.
