Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) along with Stan Lee and Joss Whedon seem to have put together a nerdtastic documentary about Comic-con and the fans who gather by the thousands each year in San Diego, California to attend the world’s largest comic book convention.
His camera was rolling in 2010 on Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope and by the looks of the trailer he’s decided to stay behind the lens and let Kevin Smith talk, that’s unfortunate.
Have you ever imagined a place where Vulcans and vampires get along? Where wizards and wookies can be themselves? Welcome to Comic-Con San Diego. What started as a fringe comic book convention for 500 fans has grown into the pop culture event of the year that influences every form of entertainment, now attended by over 140,000 strong. COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN’S HOPE- a film by Morgan Spurlock explores this amazing cultural phenomenon by following the lives of five attendees as they descend upon the ultimate geek mecca at San Diego Comic-Con 2010.

‘The Swell Season’ Trailer – follows the real-life tale of the ‘Once’ musicians – watch below:
We have the trailer for Morgan Spurlock’s next great debate, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold. He financed his movie about advertising through advertising and he sold off the title to POM Wonderful (as you will see in the trailer). Oh Spurlock, you little scamp! The documentary is (bare with me) documents the making of the documentary you are currently watching with how advertising dominates our lives, movies and music.
Hit the jump for the trailer and poster to check out the trailer, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold opens April 22nd. (more…)
Matt Groening and Al Jean told Morgan Spurlock (who’s making a Simpsons Doc) have ruled out making a second Simpsons movie, at least not until the TV series finally wraps. Groening says:
“It took 18 years to get around to doing the movie, we got very frustrated. We thought it would take two years but it ended up taking four. Some day maybe we’ll do another one — but don’t hold your breath.” The show in it’s 21st season has taken a lot from fans and critics about its longevity and staying fresh. Groening adds: “We cannot predict the end because we can’t believe we are still here today,” Jean added, “We are contracted to do two more seasons following this one. I gave up predicting the end a long time ago.” [Variety]
Also as you can see to your left, Marge Simpson will bare it all for Playboy next month. Hugh Hefner teased a while back on Twitter about a possible Marge-Playboy collaboration. Marge will be featured in a three-page pictorial complete with an interview and a data sheet to mark The Simpsons 20th anniversary.
The Simpsons “Best. 20 Years. Ever.,” celebration will culminate in January of next year with a documentary entitled The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special in 3D on Ice (this special is neither in 3D nor on ice) airing on Thursday, January 14th ( the 20th anniversary of the series’ debut) Source: Simpsons Channel
The special will document how the world sees The Simpsons and how the Simpson family has seen the world for two decades. It will be directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, star of “Super Size Me” and “30 Days”. Spurlock does good work, and he is obviously a fan of The Simpsons seeing how he is breathing and all. Anyone who says they don’t like The Simpsons is a liar, a filthy liar. “When they first called me about this, I thought it was a prank and I hung up,” said Spurlock. “And then my agent called back and said, ‘No, no, this is for real,’ at which point I fainted. Then when I woke up, I called everyone I knew because it was the coolest thing I could ever get to do in my career.”
