This year’s Sundance Film Festival has a number of classic Sundancers returning this year including Morgan Spurlock of Super Size Me fame with his latest film, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, we also have Director Azazel Jacobs teaming up with another festival champ John C. Reilly, and finally a more thrilling return from Open Water filmmakers Chris Kentis and Laura Lau with Silent House. Find out more about all the films below…

Morgan Spurlock’s The Greatest Movie Ever Sold:

Official Sundance Synopsis:

Acclaimed filmmaker and master provocateur Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) returns to the Sundance Film Festival with tongue-in-cheek perfection as he examines the world of product placement, marketing, and advertising by making a film financed entirely by product placement, marketing, and advertising. 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.

Azazel Jacob’s Terri with John C. Reilly:

Official Sundance Synopsis:

Director Azazel Jacobs (Momma’s Man) returns to Sundance with a tale that will speak to anyone who has ever felt insecure or misunderstood. In other words . . . everyone. Orphaned to an uncle who is ailing, mercilessly teased by his peers, and roundly ignored by his jaded teachers, Terri finds himself alienated and alone. But when the dreaded vice principal, Mr. Fitzgerald, sees a bit of himself in the boy, they establish a friendship that encourages Terri to consider the possibility that life is something to be shared, even enjoyed, not just endured. Wonderfully enacted, perceptive, and honest, Terri perfectly captures the lonely life of an outcast. But we don’t pity or laugh at him; we relate to him. Remaining true to himself in the face of adversity, Terri becomes an unlikely hero. Filled with heart and humor, Terri is a comedy about feeling alone, and discovering there are others who feel the same way.

Sundance Institute announced yesterday that filmmakers Chris Kentis and Laura Lau the brains behind the Sundance success Open Water will return to the Festival with their latest feature, Silent House, which will have its world premiere in the out-of-competition Park City at Midnight section.
