The Toronto Film Festival came to a close on Saturday, and I’m currently in Austin Texas awaiting Fantastic Fest. That said, we still have a bunch of TIFF coverage left to post. I thought I’d begin with this video blog recorded a few days ago with Alex from FirstShowing and myself, reviewing the superhero dramedy Defendor (starring Woody Harrelson and Kat Dennings) and the anticipated new Michael Moore documentary Capitalism: A Love Story. Watch the video blog after the jump.

This year might be the last time you see a Michael Moore documentary on the big screen. This according to the filmmaker, who tells The Detroit News that while making his upcoming doc, titled Capitalism: A Love Story, “I’ve been thinking that maybe this will be my last documentary… Or maybe for a while.” Moore says that he would like to transition into the world of narrative fictional feature films. He’s even been working on a couple screenplays.

Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story

michael moore bailout

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has finally announced the title of his new film, Capitalism: A Love Story. I have to admit, I like it a lot more than the previously proposed “Save The CEOs”, which came from the clever and nontraditional teaser trailer Moore released in June. Others had speculated that the doc would be titled “Bailout,” which I also liked. But Capitalism: A Love Story hits the perfect note. In the announcement, Moore calls the film “the perfect date movie.” Moore recently joked that people could call the film “A Michael Moore Comedy About the End of the World as We Know It.”

Update: Overture has released the official trailer, embedded after the jump.

Every Friday night I represent /Film as a guest on the BDK Movie Show on WJFK, and tonight’s show kicked off with a great little scoop about Michael Moore. Being a DC based radio station, they were definitely (once again) in the right place, at the right time.

Lucky moviegoers in a very small number of theaters in NY, LA, Chicago and DC tonight ended up playing a part in the promotions for Michael Moore‘s next documentary. As Peter told you on Thursday, the teaser trailer for Moore’s as-yet untitled ‘bailout’ film was set for premiere in cinemas today. What he couldn’t tell you then was just how unusual the first teaser trailer was, and how interactive…

Perhaps the lucky cinema patrons had some inkling that something odd was going to go down tonight when, as they walked in to take their seats, they had to pass by signs telling them that they were liable to be filmed and informing them that entering the auditorium would be, in effect, giving consent for their images to be recorded and used.

USA Today was given the first photo from Michael Moore‘s still-yet-to-be-titled documentary about the financial meltdown. The photo shows Moore outside Goldman Sachs headquarters in Manhattan. But now that Wall Street has become the target, don’t expect a two hour “economics lesson.”

Moore jokes that “it’s going to be more like a vampire movie. Instead of the main characters feasting on the blood of their victims, they feast on the money. And they never seem to get enough of it.” Moore also says that people will get “a good laugh” out of his film, and will hopefully walk out of the theater saying “Wow, that was something!” Moore jokes, “maybe they also walk out asking the ushers, ‘Um, excuse me. Where are the pitchforks and torches?’”

Moore needs to step away from the AVID editing system for a few minutes to come up with a title. I’ve confirmed that a teaser trailer will be in movie theaters this weekend, but what will they be using for the film’s title? I’ve heard the trailers have just been labled “Michael Moore’s New Movie”. The film is set to hit theaters on October 2nd 2009.
