Save our CEOs! Overture Films has debuted the trailer for the new documentary from Michael Moore. After tackling topics such as gun control, George W. Bush, and health care, Moore's focus this time is on our economy. Don't be alarmed, this is only just a teaser and there isn't supposed to be footage. If you read our post earlier, this is the same thing. Like him or hate him, this is a pretty damn creative way to introduce the concept for this doc and play with the audience. A few theaters in NY, LA, Chicago, and DC actually have an "interactive" portion where ushers bring out bins to collect money in the audience. Take that, Wall Street!
Watch the first trailer for Michael Moore's new documentary:
A comical look at the global financial crisis and the current troubles with the U.S. economy during the transition between the incoming Obama Administration and the outgoing Bush Administration.
The still-untitled documentary was both written and directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Michael Moore, of documentaries like Roger & Me, The Big One, Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11, Sicko, and Captain Mike Across America, as well as the comedy Canadian Bacon. Moore started shooting pieces of this last year and has been working to uncover the "secrets" of Wall Street and our economy ever since. Overture Films and Paramount Vantage will be bringing the documentary to theaters on October 2nd this fall.
