Freaks and Geeks: The Movie
There is a new documentary by Morgan Spurlock (he directed Supersize Me) coming out later this year that is all about the crazy world of Comic-Con, which is held each year in San Diego.
Here is a little bit about it:
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 strong. COMIC-CON EPISODE IV: A FAN'S HOPE- a film by Morgan Spurlock 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.
Here is the first very entertaining trailer....
I can't believe I lived in LA all of those years and never attended. Although, last year I did attend the annual Atlanta version called Dragon Con and it was a hoot AND a hollar.
If you get a chance to attend either, I highly recommend it.
The visual entertainment value is priceless.
