Geoff Boucher, founder of the LA Times’ Hero Complex, kicks off a new monthly screening and stage-interview series at the American Cinematheque’s Egyptian Theater on May 2 : Humans from Earth.

Designed as a showcase for Comic-Con culture, the series opens with the cult classic “Slither” and an in-person Q&A with writer-director James Gunn (who’s currently in post-production on Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy”).

The series is just the first initiative from the open-ended partnership between Boucher’s new company and the Cinematheque. The Egyptian is also set to host tapings of the Humans from Earth podcast which will be recorded in front of a live audience. The first podcast on May 3 has a lineup of guests including the Russo brothers (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”), Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”) and Gerard Way (former lead singer of My Chemical Romance and writer of the Eisner-winning comics series “Umbrella Academy”).
