For those lucky millions who have made it to San Diego in July for Comic-Con International, you know how truly epic it is for fans. That’s why infamous niche documentary director Morgan Spurlock felt it was time to put the limelight on the droves of Klingons, Autobots, caped crusaders, and Anime teens that attend the show each year. Enter Comic-Con Episode IV, A Fan’s Hope.
The film is clearly stamping all over the nerd genre, even with the name, by playing to what we nerds really love: geeky celebs. You’ll see cameos from resident geeks like Eli Roth, Kevin Smith, Seth Rogan, and tons others pledge their love for the 4 day nerd fest like no other. Also, the story follows the lives of a few legitimate geeks who pledge their lives to all things nerdy. Here’s the synopsis:
