While we wait for Superman Returns to arrive on DVD, relive the movie again with the CD soundtrack, with music by John Ottman. I’ve got three copies of the CD to give away, courtesy of Rhino Records. Here’s the scoop on the music, from Rhino:

The thrilling and dramatic score from Superman Returns, the highly anticipated film featuring the Man of Steel’s latest heroic adventure, features nearly an hour of music from award-winning composer John Ottman (Fantastic Four, X2). The score album is enhanced with an exclusive video interview with the film’s director, Bryan Singer (X2: X-Men United, X-Men, The Usual Suspects), a featurette on the making of the score and two trailers for the film.

Recorded with a 97-piece orchestra led by conductor Damon Intrabartolo, SUPERMAN RETURNS: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SCORE features Ottman’s epic score including his unique twists on themes that John Williams composed for the original 1978 film, such as the classic main theme, “Superman March.” Superman Returns stars newcomer Brandon Routh, Kate Bosworth, Parker Posey and Kevin Spacey.

The score album also includes liner notes penned by Ottman, who writes about his admiration for the 1978 original and its Williams score. “When Bryan (Singer) called informing me we were going to be making this film, I could actually feel my neck and shoulders tightening up. I mean, this is the Man of Steel. This is THE superhero. Why are we fooling with this!? Soon thereafter I swear I could see an apparition of John Williams, like Obi Wan Kenobi, waving his fingers, mouthing, ‘Don’t screw this up.’ It wasn’t as much the weight of also editing the picture, but foremost, the musical behemoth and responsibility ahead.”

Read my review of the film.

If you don’t want to wait to win, buy the CD at Amazon.

WINNERS: Monique, Daniel, and Amelia
