Produced by Joss Whedon and directed by Morgan Spurlock, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope aims to take you inside the beautiful madness of the event that's shaped pop culture for the last decade (for better or for worse): San Diego Comic-Con.
We've all heard the stories—or worse, read the books—about the hot young actor who "loves" comics and gets involved with a publisher to make some generic book in the hopes of selling it to Hollywood as a starring vehicle. And then there's Transformers' Shia LaBeouf, who showed off his new comics at the C2E2 convention. Whoo boy.
Short films are always kind of hit or miss. They can either be proof of concept masterpieces that deliver perfectly sized nuggets of phenomenal, or they can be 10 minutes you'll never get back. But Archetype, directed by one of Rise of the Planet of the Apes' concept designers, is definitely a cut above.
The Internet is teeming with would-be filmmakers who think they've created the next big thing on their laptop. But every now and again, a singular vision makes itself known—and the creator of the post-apocalyptic Rosa has hit the jackpot.
Seriously, one look at this eight-minute short from British filmmaker Matt Westrup and you'll understand why it's getting promoted into a feature film: The Gate features genetic malfeasance, robotic power armor, swell CG beasts and a couple of terrific scares.
There are few things more "meta" than a TV show that has another TV show nestled inside of it. And fan favorites like Angel, Supernatural, Babylon 5, and Futurama have all dabbled with messing with our heads.

All of the Dark Knight Rises set leaks notwithstanding, it's harder than ever for fans to get anywhere near the set of a major motion picture. If it's a sequel to two of the most beloved sci-fi films of all time, it's impossible. But once upon a time, a band of Star Wars fans stumbled upon the Jedi shoot and snapped proof of their visit.
If we had to guess, we'd say that as much as love as there is for the Rebel Alliance's Admiral Ackbar and his internet meme-friendly line of dialogue, there's as much ignorance of the actor who actually uttered that line in Star Wars: Episode VI. Mystery solved!
If there's one thing Star Wars fans never grow weary of, it's finding the plot holes in George Lucas' saga ... and then driving cruise ships through them. Luckily for us, the gang from How It Should've Ended has done some of that work for us, so we can sit back and enjoy the ride.
To anyone who's been paying any attention to both the Star Wars prequels and the Cartoon Network's animated series, it's obvious that by Revenge of the Sith, Ahsoka Tano is no longer Anakin Skywalker's student. Will we finally find out why?
