Morgan Spurlock, whom many of you may know from the movie “Super Size Me” or “Where In the World is Osama Bin Laden”, is setting off to tackle San Diego’s Comic-Con in his new documentary “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope”. Comic-Con is actually on my bucket list of places/events to attend before I die, granted I’d rather go sooner than later. I’m not all about the dressing-up and costume stuff, but rather the movies and panel side of it. I do watch most of them online after they happen, but I have to imagine it’s much better being there in person. It’s a celebration of geek culture and I’m all about it.
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.
