Official Trailer for Morgan Spurlock's 'Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!'
"Go forth and find your chickens!" Samuel Goldwyn Films has debuted an official trailer for Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!, the latest documentary by acclaimed documentarian Morgan Spurlock. This first premiered in 2017 at the Toronto Film Festival, but hasn't been released yet - arriving in theaters & on VOD in September this year. Spurlock's big directorial debut was the very successful doc Super Size Me, which originally premiered in 2004. He returns with a sequel, reigniting his battle with the food industry – this time from behind the register – as he opens his own fast food restaurant. We follow him every step of the way, from raising the poultry and conjuring recipes to designing the brand and scouting a location. Giving us another unique, fascinating Spurlock inside look at an industry that isn't as special as it pretends to be. I've always enjoyed seeing Spurlock dive into his own ideas, experimenting with honesty and showing us the truth behind everything – even if it's bad. I've been looking forward to this and can't wait to finally watch it.

In the 13 years since Super Size Me (2004), the fast-food industry has undergone a makeover. Today, chain restaurants tout food that's "healthy," "organic," and "natural." Spurlock explores this new reality with an approach even more immersive and subversive than that used for his first film: he sets out to open his own chicken franchise. We follow him every step of the way, from raising poultry and conjuring recipes to designing the brand and scouting a location. Spurlock brings his disarming humor to uncover the truths and lies behind this multibillion-dollar industry. Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! is directed by American filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, of the docs Super Size Me, Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden?, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope, Mansome, One Direction: This Is Us, We the Economy, and Rats previously. This originally premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2017. Samuel Goldwyn Films will finally release Spurlock's Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! doc in select US theaters + on VOD starting September 13th, 2019 coming up in fall.
