Here’s the scene order:

Donner cut recap (with a few of the poorer effects shots of the PZ removed) and I cut straight from the PZ drifting in space to SM chasing the rocket.

Credits from STM intercut with Donner cut for a few credits + earth approach at the end.

Daily planet intro from Donner cut. No Lois jumping out the window.

Lex in prison from the donner cut

Moon sequence as in Donner cut with control room trimmed slightly.

Lex escapes from prison as in Donner cut.

Arrival at Niagra Falls as in Donner cut.

Lex in the fortress from the Donner cut. Cut from outside to “its fantastic”. Toilet joke also removed. Fade from Lex’s monologue about the villains into Lex Heads South deleted scene.

Niagra Falls rescue from Donner cut up till the boy falls then Lester for the superior music. A lot of trimmed dialogue also.

Villains land from Donner cut. “such a strange surface” line removed.

Lois jumps in the river. Some dialogue trimmed.

Ursa burns the snake. As in Donner cut but without her being bitten, she ust picks it up, throws it down and burns it.

Pink bear. Some dialogue trimmed.

East Houston cops face the villans from the Donner cut. “Holy skunk sweat” removed. Zod takes the gun of the cop a super speed, no floating gun.
Superman flies Lois to the FOS from Donner cut,

Superman shows Lois the green crystal. Lois’ reactions and bad dialogue trimmed.

East Housten battle from Donner cut.

Superman and lois have dinner. Lois’ bad dialogue trimmed again.

Zods “your lands” speech from donner cut, with fall of washington monument.

Depowering scene from Donner cut intercut with Lois reactions from Lester (recoloured where needed). Lois painted out for distance shots of Brando. Sound from Lester used during depowering leading into Lesters “just say you love me”.

Whitehouse attack from Donner cut. Bullet hits added. Lester sound used in the oval room. Ursa “ribbons” dialogue removed.

Dons Diner from Donner cut.

Lex makes deal with the villains. Starts with Lex at the door, dialogue of Zod being bored cut.

Repowering starts with lesters up until crystal is found where Lois left it, then Donner footage.

Villans attack the DP from Donner cut until SM turns up then Lester/ Donner Comination. “care to step outside” is used.

Metropolis battle. Donner/Lester Combo. Lester score restored in some places. Reaction shots are all Donner.

Villains go back to the DP as in Donner cut.

Villains fly to the FOS from Donner cut.

Villains enter the Fortress deleted scene. With bad effect replaced.

Villains in the fortress as in Donner cut with Lester score restored from the hand crush. Sweat patch also painted out.

Superman and Lois talk outside the FOS. Destruction of the FOS removed.

SM and Lois talk on the balcony as in the Donner cut.

Revenge on the Diner bully.

Flag scene. With fountain fixed.

Flyby and credits from Donner cut.

The deleted scenes I used have had as much dirt removed as possible and been recoloured .

Although Lois still realizes Clark is SM very early on,through the editing I have done she doesn’t give the game away too quick and it is SM arrival at Niagra Falls that gives her the confidence to bet her life on her hunch. I also think Lois nowing Supermans identity at the works very well.

Awesome re-edit. Although I would have prefered if the amnesia kiss was left in for completist reasons, I love what you've done. How can I obtain your re-edit?

Now, I say this is a good re-edit. Only thing that remains, is for one guy to take the best stuff from SIII and IV and make the ultimate re-edit of III, marking a TRILOGY of Chistopher Reeve's Superman films. The Paris hostage takeout and the amnesia kiss can very well be used in that ultimate III.

What do you say?

The amnesia kiss just wouldn't follow the dialogue in the Donner footage. Lois understands why they can't be together at the fortress and on the balcony. The whingy, selfish Lois of the amnesia kiss scene contradicts this.

As for Superman 3&4 I wouldn't know where to begin to put the two of them into a film that would work.

The DVD is being torrented at the moment, in PAL format. An NTSC version should be up within a few days!!

Kind of, but in the morning she says she was up all night thinking about it. It was difficult for her.

hahahaha. Still I'm hoping that someone kind find a way (be it in a Superman 2 fanedit, or the Ultimate Superman 3/4 combi movie) to tie in the story with Superman Returns... Lois has no memory of who Clark is and that Jason was Superman's son.

I'm downloading this fanedit now.

Same Make. Same Model. New Mission.

Interesting edit, though not really to my personal tastes. I love the Donner Cut, and the fact that Lois risks her life right away. Lois always seemed impulsive, and it suits her charecter perfectly. Plus, its the perfect way to start a film, as Donner said in the audio commentary. The only Lester footage I would put in is the flag scene, and possibly the amnesia kiss, though I like the turning the world around more (as long as the return match at the diner is ommitted.) But your edit is good, and shows lots of creative editing. I'm sure it will appeal to many.

Can't we just pretend Superman Returns doesn't exist? what a horrible mess of a storyline that turned out to be.

I thought it was a decent movie. I had expected more, but it was enjoyable. I only blame Bryan Singer for not including all deleted scenes on the disc,like the return to krypton.

Are you doing a SIII thats comprised of II's Paris sequence, best bits from III and IV and the amnesia kiss? That would be AWESOME!!!!

I would love to see whatever you do with Superman, btw. I loved your AOTC re-edit...
I love Batman.

Stay tuned to my non-SW thread for details in the next day or so. Memory Kiss is in my SII though.

No, but I HAVE been pushing for a project that would utilize the two movies and create an overal better one.

Are you saying you have done so?

If so.... I will be eternally greatful! I'm at loss of words - I never thought ANYONE would SERIOUSLY consider my idea - I even thought of doing this thing myself, eventually.

Anyway, I'll see you at your non-SW thread...

Booshman, I know you were working on an HD version of this for several years. Did that ever get completed?

Still incomplete I’m afraid. Life has gotten in the way for a while now, so progress has been minimal.
