Moore turns up the heat on Trump in Fahrenheit 11/9 trailer

Adjust Comment Print

Fahrenheit 11/9 will see Moore sink his teeth into the phenomenon of Donald Trump and all the unusual things that have come with it - the emergence of the alt-right, total reversals of decades of American foreign policy, and a society more disillusioned than ever. He also warned that unless things change, "Donald Trump Is Gonna Get Us Killed".

Now Moore has turned his lens on America under the reign of Donald Trump, going after the lawmakers in Flint, Michigan over their disastrous handling of the city's water crisis and talking to people like David Hogg, one of the survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida that happened earlier this year.

Moore, an Academy Award-winning director, is helming the film.


Fahrenheit 11/9 refers to the day that Trump was officially announced as the next US president, and the title seems to liken his election to have had as much of an impact on the country as the September 11 attacks did. He later introduces Trump as "the last president of the United States" as a shot of Trump flashing a menacing glance at the camera appears onscreen.

This is actually Moore's second Trump-related documentary over the past two years. "That all ends with this movie".

The title itself references one of Moore's most famous documentaries, Fahrenheit 9/11, which focused on the country after the election of George W. Bush and the events that unfolded after the September 11 attacks in 2001. "Our media has no idea what it is up against", he continued.


Moore has previously said Trump will win the next presidential election in 2020 but speaking to chat show host Bill Maher in June, he said: "I'm finishing my movie and getting it out before the midterms because I want millions of people to get to the polls".

Fahrenheit 11/9 opens on September 21.
