If you're suffering from a severe case of Comic-Con FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), fear not! IMDb has got you covered with Kevin Smith aboard the #IMDboat! Watch all of our coverage of the big event at IMDb.com/comic-con.
On November 15, 2013, the world came together to grant one 5-year-old leukemia patient his wish to be Batman for a day. "Batkid Begins" looks at why and how this phenomenon took place, becoming one of the biggest "good news" stories of all time.
his upbeat documentary with a heart is a must-see. It tells the story of a young boy's Make-A-Wish that captured the imaginations of people all over the world. At a time when cynicism is rampant, the film shows that so many people are inherently good.
The movie retells the story in an entertaining way, even adding fun animation. Which is so fitting since Batman began as a comic book hero.
When Miles Scott, who was diagnosed with leukemia at 18 months, was finally in remission, his parents contacted the Make-A-Wish chapter in San Francisco. What began as a routine wish fulfillment mushroomed into a major caper-filled day with an audience of 25, 000 people and about two billion following the action via social media.
President Obama tweeted his encouragement!
Even if you're down on documentaries, you'll love this one. The critics did.
