When will the rest of the world get to see Moore’s latest? A release date isn’t set in stone, but the director is going to self-distribute his movie.

Never one to stay quiet in the midst of a heated political discussion, Michael Moore has weighed in on the 2016 presidential election with Michael Moore in TrumpLand. Sure, he’s already weighed in a bunch of times through other venues — as Moore likes to point out, he correctly predicted earlier than most that Donald Trump would win the Republican primary. But now the filmmaker gets to offer his two cents in the form of a film.
Or rather, a filmed version of a one-man show. Michael Moore in TrumpLand is essentially a concert film, shot during his performance in Wilmington, Ohio earlier this month. The most surprising thing about it, though, is that despite the title TrumpLand isn’t really about Donald Trump. Rather, it’s an impassioned, if not entirely effective, case for Hillary Clinton.

Last night brought the surprise premiere of Michael Moore in TrumpLand, a film that was put together in seven weeks after staging a one-man-show about the 2016 election at a theater in Wilmington, Ohio, a town known for being on the right side of the aisle. At only 73 minutes, it turns out that this project (which Moore had just finished cutting yesteray morning) isn’t a documentary about Donald Trump, but rather a one-man show that feels more like a commencement speech or stand-up routine featuring Michael Moore explaining why you should vote for Hillary Clinton rather than why you shouldn’t vote for Donald Trump.
So how did it turn out? Find out what the first Michael Moore in TrumpLand reviews have to say. Read More »

With just a few weeks left until the United States votes for the next President of the United States of America (as well as plenty of other important political offices and issues, the election is really heating up. We’re now in the month where campaigns pull out all the stops and do everything in their power to win the election. Thanks to what is known as the “October surprise,” that usually means digging up dirt on opposing candidates and running smear campaigns to besmirch their reputation. And it sounds like documentary filmmaker Michael Moore might be getting involved in that election tradition. Read More »
It’s fair to say most of us snuck into R-rated movies before we reached the magical age of 17. It’s easy to do, and you’d almost have to go out of your way to get caught, unless you went to a really strict movie theater. While plenty of kids and teens snuck in to see Deadpool this weekend, there’s another movie in theaters right now that a certain director thinks they should attend next.
Below, Michael Moore (Sicko) explains how anyone under the age of 17 can see his new documentary Where to Invade Next.

Clarification: The film will still be released on December 23rd 2015 in New York City & Los Angeles. Filmmaker Michael Moore e-mailed us to explain why the move was made:
“Is there any way to clear up in the headline and the lead that the open is still Dec 23 in NY & LA? I asked the distributor to give me more time to go out and do a hundred free screenings across the country before they opened it wide — and because they really hadn’t locked in solid Jan 15 as the wide date they were cool doing on Feb 12. It’s not uncommon for films to open in Dec for an Oscar qualifying run and then go wide in Jan, Feb or even the week after the Oscars. Hope I’m not splitting hairs. Love your site. Hope to talk again soon.”
The original story follows:
Not too long ago, we saw the first trailer for Michael Moore‘s Toronto International Film Festival selected documentary, Where to Invade Next. The film

But now the wide release has been pushed back a month to allow Moore to go on a nationwide bus tour which will see him debuting the film in every single state. Get the details below! Read More »
