Trailer For Morgan Spurlock’s COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN’S HOPE

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

fans-hopeMorgan 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.
