In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two films at either end of the budget scale!

Superman Returns took over a decade to come together, with over $50m spent even by the time it was greenlit. But after the successful Batman reboot landed the year before it, the pressure was on.

Blinded By The Light took a long time to come together too – but then how do you make a wonderful British coming of age film, whilst also weaving in the music of Bruce Springsteen?

Stories of both are told in this episode.
