Fast Food Nation

Published by PETA.

Richard Linklater’s Fast Food Nation opens tomorrow. Just like the book, the film promises to get a lot of people thinking about whether they really want to be eating stuff that shady corporations have made out of processed animal parts. This makes me happy, because it’s like someone else is doing my job for me. In fact, I think I might just take the day off tomorrow.

To celebrate the release of the film, we sat down with Richard Linklater and members of the cast, including Paul Dano and Esai Morales, for some exclusive interviews. We also made this extremely addictive Fast Food Nation game, which has slowed productivity around the office to a crawl. Check it out. Then find someone you love, or—failing that—someone you feel you can stand to take in a movie with, and go watch Fast Food Nation tomorrow night. It’s going be pretty damn good.
