Just when you thought nothing could top Comic-Con along comes the Hero Complex Film Festival.

The LA Times Hero Complex Blog reports the first-ever Hero Complex Film Festival will take flight June 11-13 at the Mann Chinese 6 in Hollywood with five amazing films and on-stage appearances by three signature filmmakers.

Television and film icon Leonard Nimoy will be making one of his final Star Trek related appearances on Friday, June 11, 2010 at the Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, post screening Q&A session. Nimoy directed and starred in the film. Nimoy has just announced his retirement from acting. The Hero Complex Film Festival will be part of the long final farewell to the original Mr. Spock.

On Saturday June 12th, director Christopher Nolan goes back to Gotham with The Dark Knight the second half of a Nolan double-feature -- the gripping thriller Insomnia opens the program, and the filmmaker will appear on stage between the two films. Sneak footage from the highly anticipated July film Inception will be shown.

On Sunday, it's a double feature with two blockbuster science-fiction films -- Ridley Scott's Alien and Blade Runner. The Oscar-winning filmmaker will appear on stage between the two classics to discuss the powerful legacy of Blade Runner and his past (and future) with the deep-space horror franchise Alien.

Tickets will go on sale at Monday morning May 3, 2010 at 10 a.m. Sunday's May 2nd edition of the Los Angeles Times will have a full-page ad with more information about the tix sale.
