Final Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden? Poster Discovered
I really hope you haven't forgotten about this little film. Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden? is documentary director Morgan Spurlock's (Super Size Me) latest exploration into the question of why people all over the world hate America so much. If you've already heard the big news that Spurlock doesn't exactly find Bin Laden, then don't change your mind - this is still a great documentary on its own that is well worth seeing. Spurlock is one of today's high profile doc directors that can add a his touch to any subject and turn it into something both entertaining and educating. Today we've discovered the final poster for Spurlock's latest documentary.
The original teaser poster that debuted at Sundance was one of the coolest Indiana Jones rip offs ever made. This one drops that idea entirely, due probably to legal threats and because of the new marketing focus, and goes for a much more fun and jovial look. The trouble with this documentary is figuring out how to market it with the knowledge out there now that he doesn't Osama - and I think they've done a great job. You can also watch the trailer here.
Thanks to our friends at Cinematical for debuting this. I hope we've at the least give you kick in the ass as a reminder to go see this in April!
Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden? is directed by Morgan Spurlock, director of 2004's documentary Super Size Me and producer of the TV series "30 Days". The film is being distributed by The Weinstein Company and is set to arrive in theaters on April 18th.

"The trouble with this documentary is figuring out how to market it with the knowledge out there now that he doesn't Osama" Surely no one would go into the film pondering whether he finds Bin Laden. If Bin Laden were discovered you'd never hear the end of it on the news.

did anyone call the number? haha. i was disappointed that there was no task to do, though. it asks if you got a tip off to leave it with them. but there's no opportunity to leave a message.

"If you've already heard the big news that Spurlock doesn't exactly find Bin Laden.. NOW we all have. Thanks. And we already know why the world hates Americans. They hate us for our freedoms.

I think its a crappy poster for the movie. He's "looking" for the guy that helped to kill 3000+ people and the poster looks like hes in the midst of a battle in iraq with people dying and hes smiling. Poor taste.

HAHA, CALL THE NUMBER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POSTER! It's pretty funny. I wish for the same thing #3 wanted but it is good for a laugh.

Morgan Spurlock never ceases to impress me… i just saw Super Size Me, which as amazingly insightful, and now he's making a documentary that investigates the war on terrorism? well done indeed

Morgan Spurlock is so annoying and self-absorbed. This subject matter (OBL) is so dated. Besides, OBL died years ago.
