First Photo from Michael Moore’s Bailout Documentary


There’s really not much to say about it, but USA Today has debuted the first official photo from Michael Moore’s upcoming bailout documentary. It shows Moore talking to a security guard outside the Goldman Sachs headquarters in Manhattan. Details are still scarce, and the movie is still untitled, but a release date of October 2, 2009 has been set by Overture Films and Paramount Vantage.

Strangely, Moore seems quick to play up the entertainment value rather than the educational or political content of the film:

“If you go to see my movies, even if you don’t agree with everything in the movies, you’re going to have a good laugh… I want them to walk out at the end saying ‘Wow, that was something!’ And in this case, maybe they also walk out asking the ushers, ‘Um, excuse me. Where are the pitchforks and torches?’ “

Are you looking forward to this film or have you had enough of Michael Moore?

Update: Here’s the first teaser for the film.
