Screening of “Superman IV” directed by Sidney J. Furie as part of the Octopus Film Festival 2019.
Every family has at least one relative whom she would most likely cut out of her family photos. In the DC universe it is Superman IV from 1987, produced by the legendary Cannon Films label.The budget ended in the middle of filming and an infinite movie hit the cinemas. Although Christopher Reeve as Superman and Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor returned in the cast, and behind the camera was a genre guide, Sidney J. Furie, budget cuts were merciless – some scenes were filmed in places that were completely unsuitable for their script description, you just ran out of finances. The real killer for Man of Steel was therefore not a kryptonite, but poor accounting.
