Posted Wed Feb 15, 2023 at 12:48 PM PST by Tom Landy
The critically-acclaimed 2011 DC Comics animated movie will be soaring to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on April 18.
Grant Morrison's beloved, Eisner Award-winning vision of Superman's heroic final days on Earth is brought to exquisite, animated life in All-Star Superman. The film begins as the Man of Steel rescues an ill-fated mission to the Sun (sabotaged by Lex Luthor) but, in the process, is oversaturated by radiation - which accelerates his cell degeneration. Sensing even he will be unable to cheat death, Superman ventures into new realms - finally revealing his secret to Lois, confronting Lex Luthor's perspective of humanity, and attempting to ensure Earth's safety before his own impending end with one final, selfless act.
The release will include new featurettes and previously released content including an audio commentary and a digital comic book.
