One of the best geek reporters in the mainstream media today is Geoff Boucher of the Los Angeles Times who writes the blog Hero Complex. Well, tickets just went on sale for his first ever Hero Complex Film Festival taking place June 11-13 at the Mann Chinese 6 in Hollywood, CA.
First up on June 11 is a screening Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home followed by a Q&A with Leonard Nimoy. Then, on Saturday June 12 there will be a double feature of Insomnia and The Dark Knight with a Christopher Nolan Q&A sandwiched in between. Finally, on Sunday June 13, Ridley Scott will do a Q&A between a double feature of Alien and Blade Runner.
Hit the jump to find out how to get tickets and to hear a bit about what the directors will talk about.
According to the original announcement, Nimoy is making this one of the stops on his retirement tour, Nolan is expected to bring not only clips from Inception, but you know Batman 3 will get brought up, and I’m sure Scott will discuss the upcoming remake to Alien.
Tickets for the festival are $29.75 for the single screening of Star Trek IV, $43.50 for each the double feature and $96.50 for all three. I already locked up one of those three days passes and, incredibly, there are still tickets available as we post this. Don’t wait. Click this link.
