Morgan Spurlock has a charming new documentary called COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN’S HOPE coming out in a few months. We saw the film back at Fantastic Fest last year and had some very favorable things to say about it. It’s great to see the movie finally get promoted.
The doc follows a group of die-hards as they head out to the biggest pop culture convention in the world. They all arrive with different goals, from selling their art to buying rare action figures to getting engaged. Throughout the film, Spurlock has cut in clips of famous geeks talking about how important Comic-Con is. You can see Eli Roth, Seth Rogen and Kevin Smith briefly in the new trailer.
COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN’S HOPE is a movie that any geek will love. But it’s also an interesting look at a culture that outsiders will also enjoy. The movie opens April 6th.
