Michael Moore is getting plenty of attention for Moore’s new movie, called Michael Moore in TrumpLand. The reason Moore’s movie is called Michael Moore in TrumpLand is because Michael originally wanted to perform Moore’s one-man plan in Newark, Ohio — or “Trumpland,” as it were — only if Trump takes Ohio, the hotly desired swing state. However, Moore said the Midland Theatre in Newark, Ohio, banned Moore and his Michael Moore in TrumpLand live performance. The Midland Theatre, meanwhile, claimed that it wasn’t because Moore and his Michael Moore in TrumpLand would be too controversial — instead, the theater claims it wasn’t the right time for Michael Moore in TrumpLand.
As seen in the below photo from Michael’s Twitter post, Michael Moore in TrumpLand will apparently feature Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump, and Donald Trump, Jr., as pictured in the screenshot of the film. Moore turned to Twitter on Monday evening to reveal what Michael says is his “October surprise.” The photo apparently shows editing work being done on Michael Moore in TrumpLand.
Michael Moore in TrumpLand is set to launch on Tuesday, October 18, at 9:30 p.m. ET, showing at the IFC Center in New York City, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter. Moore notes that the box office for Michael Moore in TrumpLand will open an hour prior to the movie beginning, which means the free tickets for Michael Moore in TrumpLand will be handed out at 8:30 p.m. ET.
Moore notes that his movie is already trending, even before folks have learned anything from Michael about what Michael Moore in TrumpLand could reveal.
Either way, Moore is definitely getting plenty of buzz for his “October surprise” movie, as reported by Fox News.
Since Moore is known for his scathing documentaries that at times have ambushed people in order to get their real opinions on sending their own children to war or viewpoints about the haves versus the have-nots in places like Flint, Michigan, Michael Moore in TrumpLand is expected to be some sort of movie that would be critical of Trump and/or Trump followers.
Along with the movie being called one that Ohio Republicans tried to shut down, as noted by the Hollywood Reporter, Michael Moore in TrumpLand is also being called one that takes place deep in the heart of TrumpLand — but it isn’t known where that TrumpLand could be.
“Moore dives right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election.”
Michael Moore in TrumpLand will run in New York City — and also take a turn for a week in Los Angeles.
Folks in the cities where Michael Moore in TrumpLand won’t run can eventually watch the movie on iTunes, according to the AV Club.
Moore has been interviewed as saying that Trump could indeed win the presidential election — and has cautioned folks not to get comfortable in thinking that Trump would automatically lose to Hillary Clinton.
Thus far, YouTube does not have any preview trailers of the TrumpLand movie, with the video-sharing website only containing news reports about Moore’s TrumpLand movie as of this writing.
As seen in the featured photo above, Melania Trump sits next to Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump, and Donald Trump, Jr. as the foursome waited for the beginning of the second presidential debate on Sunday, October 9. The third and final presidential debate between Clinton and Trump is scheduled for Wednesday, October 19.
