Here’s the trailer for Freakonomics the documentary based on the bestseller from Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt (full disclosure: I’ve read Freakonomics and Super Freakonomics. I’m also white. I do not, however, drive a mini-van.) I’m not entirely sure how you make this documentary, other than to interview Dubner and Levitt and splice it with B-roll and a few interviews, which is exactly what the trailer looks like.

No matter. The book was chock full of fascinating information; now it’s just packaged into a different medium, and directed by a lot of big-names in documentary, like Alex Gibney, Morgan Spurlock, and Seth Gordon. It debuts on VOD in the first week of September, and will be released theatrically in October. Or you can just read the book. Or pick up the sequel, where you can find out what the average price is for a handjob from a Chicago prostitute (I believe it’s $24, while intercourse is something like $85. It’s an extra $10 for the anal. Like I said: Fascinating stuff).
