Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore will release his next movie in September in Toronto. Moore made the announcement on the Twitter live-streaming service Periscope. It'll premier at the Toronto Film Festival:
"Hi, everybody, this is Michael Moore," the filmmaker begins, "and this is my first Periscope. So welcome to everybody who's watching right now. And it was just announced at the Toronto Film Festival a couple of hours ago that my new movie will be having its world premiere in Toronto in September. So we're all very excited about that.
"I've been very quiet about the making of this film ... I think the last time I was a guest on a TV show was over a year ago. So we've been very diligent about keeping this undercovers.

We're not saying a whole lot about the film right now, for all the obvious reasons, the least of which -- I'd like to say hello to my NSA friends who are watching right now: 'Guys, hey.'"
The movie is called Where to Invade Next. He called his film "epic."

Among those who make their living watching movies and writing about them, there seems to be a consensus that it is a matter of the gravest moment. The King’s Speech appears likely to win the Best Picture Oscar on February 27 rather than The Social Network, and this, they believe, will prove to be a calamitous cultural event.
I’ve been told 2010 was a great year for movies—everything from The King’s Speech to The Social Network to Inception. Not that I would know. As a parent of two toddlers, I get to a movie theater at most once or twice a year.
