Did you ever have an idea for an action movie? Of course you have, we all have! Which makes one of MCM's Comic Con panels pretty universally relevant.

That panel was the Punch Above Your Weight panel, presented by the London Action Film Festival. Longtime members of the industry Chris Auty, Gareth Ellis-Unwin, and John Gilbert took the stage with tips and encouragement for anyone who wants to te into the genre but doesn't hae, say, a billion dollars. We filmed their advice; check it out below.

Popverse filmed this and several other panels at MCM Comic Con, which you can watch afterwards on-demand by becoming a paid Popverse member or a MCM 2023 digital ticket holder.
