This election season has been something else. There has been so much nonsense and stupidity thrown around in this intense political climate that many have pointed to the fact that Mike Judge‘s cult favorite comedy Idiocracy predicted that this kind of thing would eventually happen. In fact, there were supposed to be some Idiocracy-themed political ads that would have went after candidate Donald Trump, but they were axed by 20th Century Fox, and you can probably guess why.
But that’s not stopping Mike Judge and Idiocracy from making waves this election season. This year happens to mark the 10th anniversary of the comedy that features some rather insightful social commentary, much of which has become eerily accurate in the wake of the current election, and to celebrate; the film will be coming back to theaters next month thanks to Alamo Drafthouse.

But the theatrical release of the film in the United Kingdom had 24 minutes cut from the movie back in 1980. Now they get to see the movie Stanley Kubrick intended everyone to see it all its glory in the form of a a new digital transfer by Warner Bros. Pictures.

And if so, that campaign got off to a rousing start this weekend at TIFF.
Fox 2000 brought about half an hour of footage to present at the festival, followed by a panel presentation. The latter got emotional as star Taraji P.
