Michael Moore: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Trying to capitalize on the inevitable hype that will surround the DVD release of Fahrenheit 9/11, MGM has teamed with Miramax Films to rerelease the souped-up version of the Bowling for Columbine DVD packaged with the more obscure Michael Moore film "The Big One." The three-disc set -- which also will contain a 15-minute featurette called "39 Cities in 23 Days," basically consisting of footage collected during Moore's book tour for "Dude, Where's My Country?" -- is dubbed the "Michael Moore DVD Collector's Set" and hits shelves Oct. 5, the same day as Fahrenheit 9/11.
The Big One, distributed domestically by Miramax in 1998, is a 90-minute documentary that has Moore pestering CEOs to explain how fat profits can lead to employee layoffs. It's tagline: "Protecting the earth from the scum of corporate America."
