‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Trailer: Michael Moore Doc Targets Mid-Term Elections

Still, Michael Moore's brazenly antagonistic and confrontational style is probably just the thing needed for these times and if this first trailer is anything to go by, he's not even close to pulling his punches.

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.

"Ladies and gentlemen, the last president of the United States", Moore says in a voiceover as Trump stares into the camera. Moore links Trump's political victory to numerous country's biggest crises and issues, including the rise of white supremacists, as the featured trailer above is highlighted with Moore spraying water from Flint, Michigan on a governor's home, and interviewing survivors of the Parkland shooting.

In terms of calling Trump America's last president, Moore recently spoke to HuffPost about the film, and he said Trump "has no intention of leaving the White House".

Say Maryland's Kevin Huerter, for example, didn't get drafted in the first two rounds - he'd be able to play for the Terps again. University presidents and chancellors will be held "personally accountable" for any rule-breaking by their athletic departments.

In the first footage from the film, we see Moore speak to Parkland student and activist David Hogg and rising Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. "This is the movie that will end the madness". To make the Trump documentary, Moore has reunited with his acclaimed team from Fahrenheit ‪9/11 - Oscar-nominated documentary directors/producers Meghan O'Hara, Tia Lessin and Carl Deal.

How do you feel about a Michael Moore-helmed Donald Trump documentary? 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. "Our media has no idea what it is up against", he continued. "If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out".

The movies is expected to hit American theatres on September 21.
