SUPERMAN RETURNS

From the 1993 feature Public Access, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, to the Super Hero franchise X-Men, BRYAN SINGER (Director – Producer – Story By) has infused his award-winning films with richly drawn characters and a bold visual style.

He first gained widespread attention in 1995 with the mystery/thriller The Usual Suspects, which was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Picture and starred Benicio Del Toro, Gabriel Byrne, Kevin Pollack and Kevin Spacey, whose performance garnered an Academy Award in the Best Supporting Actor category. The film's screenwriter, Christopher McQuarrie, also received an Oscar for his original screenplay. The Usual Suspects was the first project produced by Singer's Bad Hat Harry Productions, a motion picture, television and video game production company he formed in 1994. Bad Hat Harry Productions has produced or co-produced all of Singer's films as well as the highly successful television series House, the upcoming feature length documentary Look, Up in the Sky!: The Amazing Story of Superman and the Sci-Fi Channel miniseries The Triangle, which premiered in December 2005.

Singer's third feature film was the critically acclaimed Apt Pupil, which was adapted from a Stephen King novella and starred Academy Award nominee Sir Ian McKellen. Singer then followed with two wildly successful films – the summer 2000 blockbuster, X-Men, and the even more successful 2003 sequel, X2: X-Men United. With X2, he reunited the all-star cast of X-Men that included Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Sir Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James Marsden, Famke Janssen and Rebecca Romijn. Singer helmed the adaptation with a keen awareness of the 40-year-old comic franchise's legion of admirers. Comic fans and new audiences overwhelmingly embraced his vision, which seamlessly fused the science fiction and action/adventure genres. X2 was the first feature film in history to simultaneously open on screens worldwide on such a grand scale (93 territories) and to date the X-Men franchise has grossed over $1 billion worldwide.

Singer also directed the pilot for and executive produces the Emmy Award-winning television series House. Currently airing, House received five 2005 Emmy Award nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor - Drama and Outstanding Writing - Drama, the latter of which was won by writer/creator/executive producer David Shore. The series also received two Golden Globe nominations this year, winning Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama (Hugh Laurie). House has been a mainstay in the top 10 shows for much of its first and second seasons, averaging 19 million viewers each week. The series also now airs in several international markets.
