Welcome Weekend Screen on the Green: Man of Steel
Grab a blanket and your friends to come to the JSC Quad to enjoy free popcorn and a movie under the stars.
Superman flies back onto the big screen in this Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures production directed by Zack Snyder, produced by Christopher Nolan and featuring a screenplay by David Goyer. Born on the alien planet of Krypton, Kal-El is sent by his parents to live on planet Earth, where he is given the name Clark by kindly farmer Jonathan Kent and his wife, Martha, who raise him as if he were their own son. As a young boy, Clark displays incredible superpowers that instill him with a profound sense of personal responsibility. Later, the amiable Clark becomes a reporter for the Metropolis newspaper "The Daily Planet," and strikes up a friendship with crackerjack journalist Lois Lane. But when his new world is attacked by a force that humans are powerless to defend themselves against, Clark assumes the identity of Superman and fights to protect the entire human race.
