Superman Returns soundtrack CD (2006)


As requested by director Bryan Singer, composer John Ottman used John Williams’ score from the 1978 film Superman: The Movie as the main theme and thread it throughout the score for the 2006 film Superman Returns.  Ottman also added his own creative flair to many of the movie’s sequences. In the same year of the film’s release, Warner Bros. and Rhino Music produced the soundtrack to the film and made it available to the public on compact disc.

The inner jacket unfolds to reveal color photos of Brandon Routh as Superman, Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor, and Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane. there is also a forward from composer John Ottman. One comment from him that I think is funny is when he says, “As a kid I would play the Superman score over and over again on my record player, driving my parents and neighbors mad.”

The tracks included were:

1. Main Titles

2. Memories

3. Rough Flight

4. Little Secrets/Power of the Sun

5. Bank Job

6. How Could You Leave Us?

7. Tell Me Everything

8. You’re Not One of Them

9. Not Like the Train Set

10. So Long Superman

11. The People You Care For

12. I Wanted You To Know

13. Saving the World

14. In the Hands of Mortals

15. Reprise/Fly Away

  1. hard to believe it’s been 12 years!

    I definitely liked the way this one was done, with the John Williams theme. I think the music of the film was my favorite part of it; certainly at this point in retrospect.
