EPISODE TWO: ANATOMY OF AN ENTRANCE (3minutes:11seconds)

In Superman: the Movie, Superman doesn’t actually make an appearance in a relevant way for over an hour.  For a little kid, that’s an eternity.  So when he does, man it had better be good.   And in this thrilling sequence bringing so many disciplines together ( which is really what a Director does ), Donner and his crew deliver.  Also note: despite all the effects and loudness, the performances were strong and like the best of scenes, there is a moment in the madness when the two leads sum up the conceit of the entire film.  Can you find it?
