About Superman II

Miraculously freed from eternal orbit, the three outlaws from Krypton descend to earth, for the ultimate confrontation.

Golden Globe-nominee Christopher Reeve (The Remains of the Day, Deathtrap), Academy Award-winner Gene Hackman (The Birdcage, Unforgiven) and an all-star cast are back again in this sequel to the boxoffice smash that continues the great adventures of the Man of Steel. Superman enters the battle of his life when he fights to save the planet Earth from three intergalactic arch-criminals whose powers are as fantastic as his own. Spectacular action, unlimited surprises abound, as Superman again faces a cosmic confrontation between good and evil. Amidst it all is the will-they-or-won't-they romance of the ever-flirtatious Lois 'n Clark. Co-starring Margot Kidder (Maverick) as Lois Lane, Ned Beatty (Roseanne) and Academy Award-nominees Valerie Perrine (ER) and Terence Stamp (The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert). $108 million boxoffice!

Rated PG. Running time: 127 minutes.

About Ilya Salkind

Ilya Salkind's career highlights a strong commercial creative vision and the skilled business acumen to deliver film and television productions on-time and on-budget. He ranks among an elite group of producers whose films have generated more than $4 billion in adjusted worldwide revenue, with an adjusted average of $266 million per movie.

Mr. Salkind was born in Mexico City in 1952 and grew up in the world of motion pictures. His grand-father, Michael Salkind, was one of the pioneers of silent films and produced Joyless Street (1925), featuring Greta Garbo in her first major role. Afterwards Michael and his son, Alexander, were responsible for many successful films of artistic achievement, including Orson Welles' The Trial (1962). Mr. Ilya Salkind then took the reins and became the third generation of these successful filmmakers. He has worked out of Paris, Rome, London, Madrid, New York and Los Angeles, and speaks fluent French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and English.

At a young age, Mr. Salkind started his career as a producer and has accumulated a stunning filmography. He produced, with his father and grandfather, the tremendous worldwide box office hits The Three Musketeers and The Four Musketeers, among many other films. The production of The Three Musketeers and The Four Musketeers was the first time in the industry a film and its sequel were shot simultaneously. Mr. Ilya Salkind then went on to initiate the blockbuster Superman franchise, one of the most successful in film history. The Academy Award winning Superman: The Movie also has the distinction of being the first major Comic Book film adaptation ever made. Under his supervision, this film and its first two sequels became worldwide blockbusters.

Mr. Salkind's first venture into television, Superboy, also proved successful, lasting four seasons for a total of 100 episodes and is now a huge hit on DVD.

In the years following the success of Superboy Mr. Salkind focused his energies on the youth oriented feature Young Alexander the Great. During that period Mr. Salkind also Executive Produced The Richard Donner Cut of Superman II.

Now based in Los Angeles, Mr. Salkind and The Ilya Salkind Company, Inc. are on the fast track with a slate of Epic Motion Pictures on a scale that befits AN ILYA SALKIND PRODUCTION.
