Price: DVD $9.49
Studio: Sony

Led by a washed up former child star, a rag-tag group of former TV stars and comic book artists, who make their living working at conventions, decide to steal the loot from a crooked promoter and an overbearing former TV icon who are raking it in at a big comic book convention in the comedy adventure film Supercon.

Maggie Grace engages in a little cosplay in Supercon.

Directed and co-written by Zak Knutson, the movie stars Ryan Kwanten (TV’s True Blood), Maggie Grace (Taken franchise), Mike Epps (Faster), Clancy Brown (John Dies at the End) and John Malkovich (Red).

Poorly received by the critics during its limited theatrical rollout in April (it garnered a 17% Fresh rating at reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes based on 12 published reviews), the R-rated film looks silly but colorful…

The DVD and Digital release include the following bonus materials:

  • Commentary with Director Zak Knutson & Production Designer Freddy Waff
  • Filmmaker Commentary with Director, Editor and Writers
