I’ve had the opportunity to attend comic book conventions both as a fan and as a credential member of the press (crazy I know). Despite the poor hygiene, over priced action figures, and dingy long boxes … there is something intangibly cool about a large group of people gathered in the interest of fandom.
Director Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) put together Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope during the 2010 edition of San Diego Comic Con and from the trailer looks to be an fun take on the largest fan convention in the United States.
Unfortunately for me, this movie looks like the closest I’ll get to SDCC for the foreseeable future. Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope will get a limited theatrical release on April 6t h 2012. There will also be a mini tour which will feature “Con” related activities.
