Michael Moores award winning film has been picked up by a US distributor and will hit theaters June 25th!!! I guess it was only a matter of time but i'm glad it is sooner and not later.

I beleive it is an independant film distributor. Not MGM, FOX or any of the biggies.<br><br>
I'm so glad to see this come out!

It was a partnership of Lions gate films, IFC films, and the Fellowship Adventure Group (a group formed just to market the film) Seems like they probably had to raise alot to get mirimax to sell distribution rights

I think it would make a GREAT double feature with this:<br><br><a href="http://www.thehuntingofthepresident.com/" target="_blank">http://www.thehuntingofthepresident.com/</a><br><br>
I met Joe Conason and Gene Lyons upon whose book this is based.<br><br>
I've been waiting for this movie to come out for about 3 years now. I met Conason and Lyons when they were doing research for it.<br><br>
Very interesting indeed<br>

I did try to watch the trailer for Farenheit 9/11...but the buffering was too much...it was barely watchable...probably jammed with folks champing at the bit to see it.<br><br>
I plan to try much later...maybe even in a few days, to try to view it again.<br><br>
I vow to see this movie....and "The Hunting of the President" too.<br><br>

Which pissed you off more, the Bush in tux "...some call you elite; I call you my base..." or the "...now watch this drive" golfing Bush?<br><br>
I just got to see it. I CANNOT wait to see it!<br><br>

I went here, chose Quicktime and "small".<br><br>
Just saw it...the buffering was not too bad.<br><br>
Good luck!

It took me most of the morning to see it, but I'm am really psyched to see it this month and I NEVER watch movies at the cinema. I think I should organize a viewing party for it. This was all from one clip!

I just wanted to remind folks...there is access to the trailer also for "The Hunting of the President" at the link I posted for this movie.<br><br>
I just watched it and I was very moved by it...<br><br>
Morgan Freeman (sp?) narrates it.<br><br>
I saw David Brock speak in the trailer, I saw Susan McDougall speak also...very moving stuff.<br><br>
I met Mr. Brock, who now is associated with Media Matters. He is a very shy and unassuming guy, who realized his folly, that he had been used and is now making good for the betterment of all.<br><br>
I feel Susan McDougall was very brave. I would LOVE to read her book.<br><br>
"Hunting of the President" is another powerful testament to the single-minded focus of those who simply wanted Clinton out and wanted power at any cost. (Not to say he wasn't a jerk, but this was money spent that could have fed and sheltered and clothed a WHOLE lot of people....spent in the name of the Constitution....feigned commitment to you and me...to further a process that has landed us where we are today.)<br><br>
We MUSt learn from THIS history too, lest we are doomed to repeat it ourselves...at what expense next time?<br><br>

The trailer finally played for me.<br><br>
The footage of dubya is beyond infuriating.<br><br>
Me thinks I shall need to take a mild sedative before I go see it.<br><br>
Thank you Michael Moore.
