Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope Trailer

"My wife's not too ecstatic about this whole toy collecting thing." Wrekin Hill has debuted the first trailer via Apple for Morgan Spurlock's documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope, the doc about Comic-Con that follows geeks and their experiences around the Con. The trailer profiles a few of them, one is a toy collector, one is an artist, another is an artist, one is a comics seller and the other is the designer of those badass Mass Effect costumes - so it's five, but they only show three in this. It's still a good trailer and gives anyone who hasn't been a sense of what Comic-Con is really like, flabby Green Lantern guys and all.

Watch the trailer for Morgan Spurlock's Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope, in HD via Apple:

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. Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope is a film by Morgan Spurlock, produced by Stan Lee, AICN's Harry Knowles, Legendary's Thomas Thull and Joss Whedon, that 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. The doc premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and was picked up by Wrekin Hill. Comic-Con Episode IV will arrive in theaters starting April 6th this spring. Will you see it?

    Looks amazing. 
    Spurlock is genius. I personally cannot wait for this documentary. Also, I am displeased that Kevin Smith pronounces "comic-con", "comee-con"...
    • David Banner
      I find it more irritating when people say "CC".....
  • Will be checking this for Shoooooooooooooooooooreeesssss. San Diego is a weird place. 
  • Lebowski
    This actually doesn't look half bad. At least it isn't a Morgan Spurlock film about Morgan Spurlock discussing issues that are important to Morgan Spurlock, like every other film he has ever made. I mean the guy managed to make a documentary about finding Osama Bin Laden into a video diary. Shudder. 
  • Oh how I want to attend thee again. 
  • David Banner
    One day.....I'll cross the pond and get my ass to San Diego day
  • This looks great!
  • I'm such a geek. I love that shit.
  • Count me in!
  • I SO want to see this! Hopefully one day I can visit Comic-Con!
  • When they filmed, that was my most recent trip to Comic Con. It was AMAZING. I can't wait to go again.
  • What cities will be showing the movie on 06 April???
