Good God, how did Kevin Smith get so fat? The dude is wearing designer hockey jerseys now, presumably because he couldn’t find an off-the-rack one that would fit him. That question, and more, will be answered in “Super Size Me” director Morgan Spurlock’s latest documentary, “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope”. Probably. From the looks of the teaser trailer, Spurlock isn’t trying to change the world with this latest documentary, which means it should be good, clean fun, and more of a love letter to the geeks and fanboys (and yes, the Twi-hard girls) that flock to San Diego ever year. It will no doubt be a hit at the daily gathering this year, but it’ll be interesting to see if there’s an audience for this beyond Comic Con.
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.
Starring Kevin Smith, Seth Rogen, Eli Roth, Skip Harvey, Eric Hensen, Chuck Rodanzki, James Darling, and Se Young Kang.
Giving hope to all fanboys on April 6th, 2012, a month after Comic Con.
