Michael Moore to Release His Next Film Online, for Free

Love him or hate him, Michael Moore is going to be everywhere as this election gets closer.

Inspired by Neil Young and Radiohead, Michael Moore will release his new film online and for free.

The film, “Slacker Uprising,” follows Moore’s 62-city tour during the 2004 election to rally young voters. It will be available for three weeks as a free download to North American residents, beginning Sept. 23. An official announcement of the film is planned for Friday.

Moore said he considered releasing “Slacker Uprising” theatrically as “Michael Moore’s big election year movie” as he did with 2004′s “Fahrenheit 9/11,” which was highly critical of President Bush.

Instead, Moore opted for a symbol of gratitude to his fans as he approaches the 20th anniversary of his first film, 1989′s “Roger & Me.”

“I thought it’d be a nice way to celebrate my 20th year of doing this,” Moore said. “And also help get out the vote for November. I’ve been thinking about what I want to do to help with the election this year.”

What do you guys think?

Will you be downloading the latest Moore flick?

(Heh, you know what’s funny about this? I watched his last film, Sicko, online and for free, too. It’s just that doing so was less legal than it will be this time.)

Here’s One Way to Get Publicity for Your Movie

This was kind of a win/win situation for the producers of Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

Scenario 1: The MPAA approves this promo poster, and everybody writes about it.
Scenario 2: The MPAA does not approve this promo poster, and everybody writes about it.

“When you’ve got the word ‘porno’ in the title, naturally, the marketing materials are gonna be scrutinized more closely by the MPAA,” says the director, Kevin Smith. “I understand they’ve got a job to do, but c’mon…this image isn’t that dirty; they’re both fully clad.”

The poster was, however, approved for use in Canada.

“I’ve always loved Canada and Canadians for giving us hockey,” says Smith. “Now, I love ‘em just a little bit more. For allowing tufts of hair.”

Oh, and just so you don’t have to tear your hair out trying to figure out where you’ve seen Elizabeth Banks — besides in a Kevin Smith flick — she played that doctor chick that Zach Braff knocked up on Scrubs.

“Noooo! You Will Stay RIGHT HERE and You Will MARRY ME!!!”


I’m kidding. The Jennifer-Aniston-Fails-at-Relationships jokes will never get old for me. Mostly because they make me feel better about myself.

These are actually pics from her shooting her guest appearance on 30 Rock in NYC.

Killer stems, girl.

Still Going Strong … for the Cameras!

Whatever’s going on with Tila Tequila and Courtenay Semel behind the scenes, they still look to be very much in love on the red carpet.

Tila and Courtenay made yet another red carpet appearance at the 944 party in Hollywood last night.

You know, for all the photos we see of these two on the red carpet, I have yet to see one of them spending time together anywhere else. I’m just saying.

Nancy Who?

Unlikely leading man Jonah Hill proclaims his love for “Nancy” with a new tattoo — probably fake, right? — while running errands in WeHo.

Who’s this Nancy character?? Inquiring minds want to know!
