Morgan Spurlock's Pom Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold will debut on DVD and Blu-ray on August 23. Check out our interview with Spurlock and the trailer.

Synopsis is below. Bonus features on the DVD and Blu-ray include commentary by Spurlock, producer Jeremy Chilnick, cinematographer Daniel Marracino and editor Tom Vogt, deleted scenes, "Workin' Nine to Five (AM): POM Behind-the-Scenes Featurette," "My Favorite Commercial: A Montage," "Ralph Nadar: Words of Wisdom," and "Softer Is Louder: Frank Luntz."

SYNOPSIS:

We live in an age where it’s tough even to walk down the street without someone trying to sell you something. It’s at the point where practically the entire American experience is brought to us by some corporation. Utilizing cutting edge tools of comic exploration and total self exploitation, Spurlock dissects the world of advertising and marketing by using his personal integrity as currency to sell out to the highest bidder. Scathingly funny, subversive, and deceptively smart, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold shines the definitive light on our branded future as Spurlock attempts to create the “Iron Man of documentaries,” the first ever “docbuster”! He may very well have succeeded
