Documentary filmmaking funnyman Morgan Spurlock (“Super Size Me”) will be in Toronto this weekend to world premiere his latest project, “Comic-Con: Episode IV – A Fan’s Hope.” In an exclusive for indieWIRE, Spurlock revealed the poster art for the film, ahead of its first screening this Saturday.
In the sure to be crowd-pleasing doc, Spurlock, spurred by encouragement from Marvel mastermind Stan Lee, follows several fans on their annual summer pilgrimage to San Diego’s Comic-Con event. Spurlock also makes time for interviews with Lee, Joss Whedon, Frank Miller and Matt Groening.
“I’m not in one frame of this movie, so if you’ve hated every film I’ve made up til now, then you’ll love ‘Comic-Con: Episode IV – A Fan’s Hope,'” Spurlock told indieWIRE.
Saturday’s premiere will feature appearances from Lee, Harry Knowles and Boba Fett.
Also, if you’re in Toronto with a TIFF badge be sure to drop by the TIFF home base, the Hyatt Regency, this Sunday at 4pm to see Spurlock talk “Comic-Con” with indieWIRE.
