This June 15, the University of the Philippines Pre-Medical Society invites everyone to witness Clark Kent’s transformation into Superman as he returns to the big screen, as portrayed by Henry Cavill in Zack Snyder’s action-packed motion picture, Man of Steel. The story tells us about the origin of Clark Kent, brought to Earth from the dying Planet Krypton and raised as one of us, struggling to fit in to this world. When the aliens attack, he is forced to protect the world, assuming the title of Superman.

The U.P. Pre-medical Society screens Man of Steel as a fund raiser to fuel its upcoming pre-medical and socio-civic activities. These include, but are not limited to, a Blood Drive this July 5 for the benefit of the Philippine General Hospital Blood Bank, a Capoiera or Social Dance event for the students of UP this August, the annual Medical Talks and NMAT Review this coming September, and the Aral sa Kwento at Pasyal which will tour children around museums as slated in October. Needless to say, the Society seeks to make everyone realize that they can be heroes in their own ways, as well as to make them appreciate the value of hope which the movie is heavily centered on.
