Comic-Con: Episode IV — A Fan's Hope at Toronto Film Festival

3 Reasons Comic-Con: Episode IV Is Our Favorite Film From the Toronto Festival

Best known for his movie Super Size Me, Morgan Spurlock's latest film, which debuted this week at the Toronto International Film Festival, puts the lens on one of our favorite annual events: Comic-Con. Comic-Con: Episode IV — A Fan's Hope follows several fans as they navigate the booth signings, costumes, and general mayhem with specific life goals in mind for their convention experiences. Here's why we can't wait for its wider release.

  • Dream Geek Cast — The movie includes appearances by Comic-Con royalty like Stan Lee, Frank Miller, Joss Whedon, Matt Groening, Seth Green, and Guillermo del Toro just to name a few.
  • Legitimizes the Fun — With the major Hollywood influence that descended on Comic-Con in recent years, it's safe to say the convention has hit the mainstream. The movie's story of seven attendees follows their determination to make it big in their respective fields including illustration, clothing design, and, well, marriage. Early reviews of the film show people's experiences beyond the basic fandemonium.
  • All That Con Imagery — The costumes! The makeup! The excitement! The movie lets you relive everything about Comic-Con that has you counting down the days until your return to San Diego.

Details on a future release date of Comic-Con: Episode IV aren't out yet; but based on what we've heard from the Toronto Film Festival, we'll be first in line.
