Super Size Me (R2) in January

Tartan Video have announced the UK DVD release of Super Size Me for 10th January 2005 with exclusive extras not found elsewhere. Morgan Spurlock’s controversial but compelling documentary explores the truth behind the health risks of fast food and in particular McDonald’s. For a whole month, he agrees to only eat from a McDonald’s menu. He continuously films himself over that time period, recording his own thoughts and state of health, whilst also interviewing nutritionists, specialists and individuals who live off fast food. The results are both entertaining and sobering.

Following rave reviews at Sundance Film Festival and its huge box-office success in US and other international territories, the film is released in UK cinemas nationwide from September 10. Already the film has created extensive media interest and support from various health agencies as well as initiating new healthy campaigns from McDonald’s themselves. Food for thought indeed!

Features include:

  • Anamorphic Widescreen
  • Director's Commentary
  • Director Interview (UK Exclusive)
  • Deleted Scenes
  • UK Premiere Voxpops (UK Exclusive)
  • Q&A with the Mclibel Two (UK Exclusive)
  • Original Theatrical Trailer
  • McLibel Trailer
  • A word with Phil Lempert - Supermarket Guru
  • Chewing the Fat Q&A (UK Exclusive)
