Michael Moore is releasing his Slacker Uprising direct to the people of the internet in the same style as time-restricted download Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
Though released in this fashion for different reasons (Dr Horrible's being budgetary and Moore's ostensibly being as a 'gift to his fans'), it signals an interesting change in movie consumption which is more reflective of modern feeling towards shelling out (or not) on film entertainment.
The film will be available to download for three weeks, starting 23 September.
Moore also feels that this will be the best way to get young people voting by November. The download window will be followed by a low-cost DVD.
Slacker Uprising follows Moore on the 2004 election trail, attempting to drum up enthusiasm for the vote in young people.
