Video Interview: Morgan Spurlock Talks ‘Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope’

Video Interview: Morgan Spurlock Talks ‘Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope’

Morgan Spurlock is a name which has become synonymous with great documentary filmmaking. He became a household name almost overnight with his 2004 debut, ‘Supersize Me’. Love him or hate him, there is no doubt that his personality shines through in each of his films. However, he doesn’t appear in a single frame of his latest offering, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope. Instead, he gives us an inside look at the world of Comic-Con International through the eyes of real attendees, who are every bit as captivating as the filmmaker himself! In this impressive piece of filmmaking, Spurlock gives audiences a look at the unique journeys of five attendees (an aspiring illustrator, a costume and creator designer, a long-time comic book dealer, a long-time amateur illustrator and a young fan hoping to propose to his girlfriend) who are attending the 2010 event. Throughout the film he injects lively interviews with Comic-Con veterans which include the legendary Stan Lee, Joss Whedon, Frank Miller, Kevin Smith, Matt Groening, Seth Rogen and Eli Roth, just to name a few.

Morgan Spurlock's must-see documentary!

Unlike the film that we saw light the fuse on his still skyrocketing career, this film is not an investigative documentary where he serves as the narrator. However, Spurlock’s personality still shows through as the film shines a loving light on one of fandom’s largest events, its dedicated fans and their adventures and celebrates geek culture! Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon spoke with Morgan Spurlock about the casting process, the challenges involved, a potential spinoff and what is next up for him. Check out the video interview below!

Plot Synopsis: 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 Four: A Fan’s Hope explores this cultural phenomenon by following the lives of seven attendees as they descend upon the ultimate geek mecca.

Comic-Con: Episode IV – A Fan’s Hope hits VOD and LA theaters on Friday, April 6th. It will take New York by storm the following week and expand from there! Visit the official website for the film at www.comicconmovie.com and become a fan on Facebook at www.facebook.com/comicconmovie!

Hilarious New Red Band Trailer For Greg Mottola’s Alien Flick ‘Paul’

Hilarious New Red Band Trailer For Greg Mottola’s Alien Flick ‘Paul’

A hilarious new red band trailer for Greg Mottola’s Paul has be unleashed! The film follows two British comic book geeks who come come across an escaped alien from Area 51 during their road trip across America. The flick features an all-star cast that includes Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Kristin Wiig, Jason Bateman, Bill Hader, Seth Rogen, Sigourney Weaver and more! Check out the trailer and the official synopsis below and mark your calendar for March 18, 2011 when ‘Paul’ hits theaters.

Official Synopsis: For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (Seth Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-traveling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town—a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Gollings (Frost).

Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.

Beastie Boys

Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch is to write and direct a short film, set to star Elijah Wood, about the band’s 1987 music video ‘(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!)’.

The film ‘Fight For Your Right Revisited’ will feature not only Elijah Wood but guest roles by Danny McBride, Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and Jack Black, according to Sundance.org.

The short film will premiere at the Sundance Short Film Festival, between January 20-30, in Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.

The Beastie Boys had been gearing up to release their new album Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 in 2009, when Adam Yauch had to undergo emergency surgery for a cancerous tumor. As a result, the group delayed the album’s release indefinitely. But according to an announcement on the Beasties’ website, there’s a new album coming very soon, though it won’t be the album they originally intended to release.

From the official Beastie Boys website:

“Although we regret to inform you that Hot Sauce Committee Part 1will continue to be delayed indefinitely, Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 will be released on time as originally planned in spring of 2011.”
