Chris Ball, President and CEO of LA-based film production and distribution company Wrekin Hill Entertainment, and Joel Weinshanker, President and CEO of the National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA), a movie merchandising powerhouse that has become an essential tastemaker for the all-important Fanboy culture, announced initial tour dates and a theatrical/VOD day-and-date release date today for Academy Award-nominated director Morgan Spurlockâ€™s Comic-Con Episode IV – A Fanâ€™s Hope. The fanboy documentary will have a day-and-date release on April 6th, with a multi-city tour of the film kicking off on Thursday, April 5th.
Beginning in Atlanta, Comic-Con Episode IV – A Fanâ€™s Hope tour stops are being planned as fan gatherings designed to recreate the â€œComic Con experience.â€ Along with a screening of the film, each stop will include exhibitor booths, animator portfolio reviews, costumes, and panels. The film will also play in traditional theatres beginning in New York and Los Angeles on April 6th.
All dates, acts and ticket prices are subject to change without notice. All tickets are subject to applicable taxes, parking and service and handling charges.
Presented by Stan Lee, Joss Whedon and Harry Knowles, Comic-Con Episode IV – A Fanâ€™s Hope takes a behind-the-scenes look at this amazing cultural phenomenon where fans gather by the tens of thousands annually to attend the ultimate geek mecca in San Diego — a fringe comic book convention that has grown into the pop culture event of the year. The film was produced by Spurlock, Jeremy Chilnick, Matthew Galkin, and Thomas Tull; and written by Spurlock and Chilnick.
Noted Ball: â€œWe are truly excited to release this fascinating documentary day-and-date in both traditional theaters and via the increasingly popular VOD platform. Partnering with NECA and adding in a live tour element to the filmâ€™s release will give audiences a multi-dimensional look at the Comic Con experience.â€
Commented Spurlock: “This film is a geek-tastic celebration of dreams and wonder. Comic-Con is not just an event it is a state of mind, and this film shows why we love it and what everyone else has been missing.”
Comic-Con Episode IV – A Fanâ€™s Hope is the latest title to be added to Wrekin Hill and NECAâ€™s partnership whereby the two companies join to distribute four to five titles theatrically each year. They have previously worked together on such films as Spencer Susserâ€™s HESHER, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Natalie Portman, and Rainn Wilson; and Alexandre O. Phillipeâ€™s documentary comedy The People Vs George Lucas.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
