Back In The Summer Of…’87…

More recent and scarce additions to my collection from the vast archive of SuperFan William S. Wilson. The above double-page vintage promos from 1985 culled from the pages of weekly Variety are a Cannon Films showcase published during what could be arguably described as their prime. The announcement of Superman IV was quite the coup for new producers Menachem Golan and Yoram Globus who look rather pleased (along with the board, bottom pic) with their acquisition of the Superman Motion Picture Property from the Salkinds, shortly before slashing its intended budget and ultimately delivering the picture that would kill the franchise…
My thanks to Chris King for re-assembling the artwork & Mr. Wilson for his continued generosity..
