Check This Out: Morgan Spurlock's 'Greatest Movie Ever Sold' Poster
I'm so excited to write about this because I absolutely loved it when I saw it at Sundance and it's coming out in a few months! Yahoo has debuted the first poster for Morgan Spurlock's new doc The Greatest Movie Ever Sold which premiered at Sundance. The doc explores product placement in movies and is also funded 100% by product placement. It's a brilliant concept and yes, Spurlock did actually get all those sponsors on his body, and the movie is officially known as POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold. I've been drinking POM since and it's delicious. If you love making films, this is a doc that you must see, it's such a meta exploration into advertising & film and Spurlock makes it incredibly entertaining to watch, too.
Morgan Spurlock returns with tongue-in-cheek perfection as he examines the world of product placement, marketing and advertising by making a film financed by product placement, marketing and advertising.
The Greatest Movie Ever Sold is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, of the documentaries Super Size Me, Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden? and The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special. The writing is credited to Spurlock & Jeremy Chilnick. This first premiered at Sundance and was bought by Sony Pictures Classics. POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold will hit theaters starting April 22nd this spring. There will be lots of additional product tie-ins to come! Hopefully we'll see a trailer soon.
