Warner Bros. Pictures released the following announcement:
Brandon Routh, the star of Warner Bros. Pictures’ epic action adventure “Superman Returns,” made a special appearance at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station, where he announced details of Operation Super Hero. The program pays tribute to America’s servicemen and women serving both here and abroad, whom Routh called “America’s true Super Heroes.”
Kicking off Operation Super Hero, more than one million postcards are already being made available to the public at the following nationwide movie theatre chains: Mann’s Theatres, UA Theatres, Regal Theatres, Edwards Theatres, Loeks Theatres and Rave Theatres. Postcards can also be obtained at some local retail outlets. People are encouraged to write messages of appreciation and support to our men and women in uniform, and can then drop the pre-paid postcards in any U.S. Postal Service mailbox. The postcards will be delivered to Warner Bros. Pictures, which is working with the U.S. Military to deliver the million-plus postcards as a special July 4 greeting.
A downloadable, non-pre-paid version of the Operation Super Hero postcard is also available on the “Superman Returns” website, although those choosing this option will need to add postage to mail it. Go to www.supermanreturns.com and click on the News section to find the postcard.
Warner Bros. Pictures is not forgetting the servicemen and women, as well as military families, who are currently stationed at bases in the United States. On the weekend of June 24 & 25, the Studio will be hosting special advance screenings of “Superman Returns” at 45 military bases across the U.S.
Operation Super Hero concludes, appropriately enough, on the Fourth of July, when Warner Bros. Pictures treats our troops overseas to special Independence Day screenings of “Superman Returns.” Screenings will be held at the U.S. Naval base in Naples, Italy, which provides support for the troops serving in Iraq, and the U.S. Naval base in Yokosuka, Japan, which provides support to the troops stationed in both Iraq and Afghanistan. In addition, the film will be shown to our men and women on the front lines at Camp Anaconda in Balad, Iraq, located outside of Baghdad.
“Superman Returns” opens nationwide on Wednesday, June 28, 2006.
