It is also a play on Moore's earlier documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11, about the presidency of George W. Bush. The doc, a sort of sequel to Moore's anti-W film Fahrenheit 9/11 is set to hit theaters September 21, a date chosen by Moore to spread the anti-Trump word before the mid-term elections.
The new trailer includes a Michigan-centric trip to Gov. Rick Snyder's home, where Moore pulls out a fire hose and sprays "Flint Water" out of a tanker truck and over the fence onto the property.
"Fahrenheit 11/9" will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, the festival announced Thursday. November 9th was, of course, the day the Associated Press called the election for Trump. "That all ends with this movie".
He also added that journalism schools do not teach students how to handle an "authoritarian leader" and hopes that this film shows viewers the "danger" of President Trump where the execution of their jobs is concerned. They're getting steamrolled by a tyrant because Trump understands media and understands the country he lives in more than those that cover him do.
Throughout the trailer, there are snippets that show the wide range of topics that will be covered in the documentary, including the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, the emboldening of white nationalists, an increase in toxic nationalism, as well as NY congressional democratic primary victor Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
He added that: "If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out". We don't need hope.
The movies is expected to hit American theatres on September 21.
