Maggie Grace is familiar with the appeal of an action film spearheaded by writer/producer Luc Besson’s (Taken, The Fifth Element) EuropaCorp — particularly one in which she has been abducted. Her role as the kidnapped daughter of a man (Liam Neeson) who will stop at nothing to retrieve her in Taken propelled the actress onto the world stage more than any of her previous work.

Whether you’re a fan or not of Spurlock’s previous documentary features, you’ll want to know going in that you’re going to get something slightly different with Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope - in every sense of the term.
Many people today (in America and well beyond) know about the San Diego Comic-Con. Every July, geeks, nerds, movie studios, media outlets and pop-culture enthusiasts of all types ...

We had the opportunity to interview the film’s star, Guy Pearce, about playing a classic action hero in Lockout as well as a bit on his work in Prometheus.
