COMIC BOOKS TO FILM: WITH ADAM HUGHES AND STEVEN P. WEGNER

An all new season of THE GRINDHOUSE: WITH CRAIG & JIM returns as we launch our “DocuPod” series (part podcast / part documentary) and celebrate the release of AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON with an in depth look at the comics-to-film phenomenon.  Our guests include legendary illustrator Adam Hughes (WONDER WOMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE, BEFORE WATCHMEN, LUCASFILM) and film producer Steven P. Wegner (THE BLIND SIDE, THE BOOK OF ELI, PRISONERS, DOLPHIN TALE); with topics ranging from the box office performance of comic book films at home and abroad (as well as their contribution to world perception of American culture), to the recent controversy over comic character “race and gender” swapping.  Adam chats about his personal experiences with WATCHMEN and it’s director Zack Snyder.  And the film producer and popular illustrator both finally offer opinions as to what separates a fair-to-middling comic / film adaptation from a truly great one.  Includes film

audio clips, archival interviews with Frank Miller, Samuel L. Jackson, and screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz, film score excerpts, behind the scenes featurettes on 300, DICK TRACY, SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE and more. “Excelsior!”
