This will be gold.
Only teased mere days ago, seemingly out of the blue documentary-maker Michael Moore has released a film about Donald Trump’s presidential campaign called ‘TrumpLand‘ – just in time for the November election.
It all started with a mysterious tweet on Monday.

Having referred to the project as an ‘October Surprise’, the filmmaker has all of a sudden announced a screening. The official description says: “See the film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down. Oscar-winner Michael 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.”
But whatever ‘TrumpLand‘ is still remains a mystery. Whether it’s a movie, doco or something else is all being kept pretty hush-hush and while we don’t know what the feature will be about, we do know that Moore has been a vocal opponent of Trump, so it’s doubtful that he will portray the Donald in a positive light.
The film is about to have its first screening. He announced a sneak-peek showing in New York for free earlier this morning on Twitter. The line for the session has predictably gone out of control.

We don’t know yet whether the feature will get an Australian run, or if it will be released online in time for the election. We will stay on this story and add updates as they come in.
