After Morgan Spurlock's fast-food expose Super Size Me turned into an Oscar-nominated Sundance doc hit (and SnagFilms' best ever performer), he followed with Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden? His latest, product-placement investigation The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, was bought by Sony before it played well at both Sundance and SXSW. I'll catch up with it and Spurlock at the Ashland Film Festival on April 8 before Sony Pictures Classics releases it April 22. Check out the trailer below:
