The name of the film is taken from the day after the November 8 election when Trump was declared the president-elect and is a reference to Moore's 2004 President George W. Bush-focused documentary Fahrenheit 9/11.
Fahrenheit 11/9 is named after the date that Trump was officially announced as the victor of the presidential election.
Asked if the film provides a "glimmer of hope", Moore shot back, "Fuck hope".
Oscars trim telecast, take awards off air and add 'popular' category
Edited versions of the awards given out during the breaks will air later in the broadcast. The Oscars are adding a new category to honor popular films .
The ensuing voiceover goes on to pronounce Trump "the last president of the United States". Moore correctly predicted that Trump would win the White House by scoring the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Moore says in the trailer, which shows the Bowling for Columbine filmmaker examining the political and social impact of Trump's controversial election to the most powerful position in the world. Over a year after that letter's publication, things haven't changed, which is why Moore made a documentary about the Trump administration.
Filming on Moore's new Trump documentary has been done under a strict cloak of secrecy. No matter what is revealed, he remains standing. Even when he commits a self-inflicted wound, he gets up the next morning and keeps going and tweeting. "That all ends with this movie".
The movies is expected to hit American theatres on September 21.
-Michael MooreThe ultimate message of film-which Moore describes as a "comedy/horror documentary"-appears to be a bridge between the argument that Trump presents an existential and unique threat and this message to those who oppose him: Stop despairing". Will you check it out in theaters?
