Fahrenheit 11/9 lands in theaters September 21. Over a year after that letter's publication, things haven't changed, which is why Moore made a documentary about the Trump administration. Moore correctly predicted that Trump would win the White House by scoring the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.

The trailer includes footage of Trump rallies, neo-Nazi protests, Roger Stone, Parkland shooting survivors, and Moore himself hosing down the gated lawn of MI governor Rick Snyder with water from Flint.

Besides heavily hinting at a dystopian reality here in the United States, just as Fahrenheit 9/11's title did, Moore's new doc switches the titular date to reference Trump's appointment as president. "This is the movie that will end the madness".

In the new film, Moore appears to try and make sense of the seething national rage that propelled Donald Trump to power.

"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader", Moore told the online media outlet.

Speaking to RTÉ Entertainment in 2016 on the eve of the release of his last film Where to Invade Next Moore advised Irish people to ridicule Trump on a planned but subsequently cancelled visit to Ireland.

Documentarian Michael Moore is back with a new film called Fahrenheit 11/9 and it doesn't look like it's going to be pulling any punches.

"Our media has no idea what it is up against, he said".

He emphasizes that having "hope" alone is passive, saying our nation should not rely on this to solve our problems. This puts us all in grave danger. 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.
