I've got an enjoyable red-band trailer here for a silly looking comedy called SuperCon. The movie is set at a comic con convention where a group of people team up and plan a heist to steal the money from the convention's biggest draw... Adam King.
With how popular comic conventions are these days, I'm surprised we aren't seeing more films like this that use them as a setting for a story.
This movie was directed by Zak Knutson and the cast includes Clancy Brown, John Malkovich, Ryan Kwanten, Maggie Grace, Mike Epps, Brooks Braselman, and Russell Peters. Here's the synopsis:
Another weekend, another comic convention for former TV actor Keith Mahar. Most people don’t recognize Keith. His only claim to fame was as a child star in an 80’s television show. Keith reluctantly joins his close friends, cartoon voice-over actor Matt, comic book artist Allison, and 80’sTV star Brock, who are also working the convention, but things take a turn for the worst when Keith’s former co-star and Supercon’s big ticket draw for the weekend — Adam King — decides to have this group fired and banned from the convention with the help of the convention promoter. This launches the friends on a crusade to bring down King and the promoter in the most epic way imaginable.
Check out the trailer and tell us what you think. The movie will be released on April 27th. Yeah... it's going up against Avengers: Infinity War... good luck with that.
