Must Watch Exclusive Interview! Mike Judge talks OFFICE SPACE, IDIOCRACY and EXTRACT

     September 1, 2009


If you’re a fan of Mike Judge (“Office Space”, “Idiocracy”, “King of the Hill”, “Beavis and Butt-head”), you are absolutely going to love the interview I did with this talented writer/director for his new movie “Extract”. That’s because when I sat down for an extended interview last week, we not only discussed his new film and how he managed to get it made with complete artistic control, but what exactly happened on “Office Space” and why did “Idiocracy” not get promoted when it was released back in 2006. While I say you’re about to watch a great interview a lot…this interview with Mike Judge is one of the best I’ve ever done on Collider because Mike was so open and honest about what happened on his previous movies.

I really mean it when I say, if you’re a fan of “Office Space”, “Idiocracy”, or just a fan of Mike Judge, make the time and watch this interview! Of course the reason I got to speak with Mike is for his new movie “Extract”, so make sure you see it this weekend as it’s really funny and if it does well…it could lead to more movies! Here’s the interview. I promise you’ll love it.
