Superman Returns press junket in Los Angeles -- and much more!!!


Superman Returns, transferred to film just hours earlier, was given its first screening for the press Thursday night in Los Angeles.

Executive producer Chris Lee introduced the film, noting that it had just been put to bed and that some minor tweaks -- i.e. color corrections -- still might be made.

He also asked that the press not leak spoilers -- including a major one not in the film's novelization.

After the screening, members of the press were given a preview of the 3D IMAX treatment the film is getting.

IMAX president of filmed entertainment Greg Foster said Superman Return's "DNA" was ideal for the 3D treatment. The first trailer, which was done in 3D to show director Bryan Singer, and examples of the film's coming-at-you action were shown.

"We showed this to Chris Lee, Brandon (Routh) and Kate (Bosworth) and they were jumping up and down and giving each other high fives," Foster said.

In other notes:

* Screenwriters Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty have small roles in the film.

* The film seemed to generate a positive response, with applause at the end.

* Look for much more on Superman Returns on Friday and throughout the weekend here in The Continuum.

Ted Raimi at the 2002 Mid-Ohio-Con in Columbus, Ohio.

Hoffman, the Daily Bugle reporter played by Ted Raimi in the first two Spider-Man films, is coming back.

"I'm definitely in Spider-Man 3," Raimi told The Continuum on Thursday.

Raimi, perhaps best known as Joxer from Xena: Warrior Princess, is the brother of Spider-Man director Sam Raimi and has worked with him numerous times.

Raimi isn't at liberty to talk about any details of the production, but it's probable he'll again have scenes with J. Jonah Jameson, played by J.K. Simmons.
