Superman III

Trivia: This is the only movie of the series where Lex Luthor doesn't appear nor is mentioned.

Trivia: As Ross gets ready to fire rockets, the sounds made are those of the old Atari home video game version of Pac-Man.

Movie Nut

Trivia: Richard Pryor originally turned the film down because he thought the script was rubbish. He admitted he only accepted the role because he was offered five million dollars for it.

Other mistake: Towards the end of the movie, when Superman drops Gus off at the coal mine, Gus begins talking with the coal miners about him and Superman. He then rips open his shirt (as if he had a Superman costume on underneath). How did Gus know that Clark Kent tore his shirt like that in order to change into Superman, or keeps his suit under his clothes at all? The only people who know this fact are the ones who have seen the transformation from Clark to Superman, i.e. the audience.
