Five Scoops of Bosco
In a new documentary film, Morgan Spurlock turns his cameras on Comic-Con -- the annual San Diego event that’s morphed from a comic book convention to a celebration of sci-fi, genre films, fantasy and all things fandom. What he emerges with is a sweet portrait of a group of fans who represent the core of this cultural phenomenon.
The movie is produced by a veritable dream team of nerd heroes: comic book legend Stan Lee who created 'Spiderman' and 'X-Men;' creator of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' Joss Whedon; producer of The Dark Knight movies, Thomas Tull; and Harry Knowles of Ain't It Cool News. With their backing, Spurlock and fellow filmmakers had complete access to the 2010 Comic-Con as they followed a handful of fans on their journey to The Con.
Today on The Business Radio Program, host Kim Masters talks to Spurlock about his film.
Also on today's show, the following will be discussed.
- Erotic novel, 50 Shades of Grey, optioned to Universal and Focus Features
- Modern Family cast negotiates for big pay raises
- Fox to launch a new cable sports channel to rival ESPN
